Air Filtration Systems and Air Purifiers in Denver, CO
When it comes to removing unwanted airborne particles from circulating through a home, an air filter is the basic place to start. There’s an air filter that comes with the HVAC system, but this isn’t designed to improve indoor air quality. A house requires special dedicated filters installed by professionals. In situations where there are smaller pollutants in the home that filters can’t handle, electronic air purifiers can be paired with the filters for an even more powerful indoor air quality solution.
It’s vital to have HVAC experts assist with air purification and air filtration system selection and installation. Cool Sunshine Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. is an HVAC company founded by Denver, CO natives with twenty years of history providing the finest quality work with ventilation systems, which makes us a great choice for filters and air purifiers.

Finding the Right Air Filtration System
One of the reasons we stress the importance of working with HVAC professionals is that it’s easy to have the wrong type of air filters put into the ventilation system without them. Filters come in a range of strengths, measured as MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value). The higher the MERV rating, the smaller particles a filter traps in its mesh weave.
But high MERV–rated filters place greater resistance on airflow, and that can mean problems for the blower of the HVAC system. You want a professional to find the MERV–rated filter that stops contaminants without putting unnecessary strain on your heating and air conditioning system—strain that may end up damaging it.
Adding Air Purification
What if you can’t put in a strong enough filter to trap the smallest pollutants that are causing issues with your home’s indoor air quality? This is when our experts will recommend installing electronic air purifiers along with the filters. Air purification systems work through a variety of methods, such as ionization and oxidation, to draw contaminants from the air without putting any resistance on airflow.
For example, an ionization filter creates an electronic field inside the ducts that changes the charge of the unwanted pollutants in the air, and then draws them down from the air to a pair of negatively and positively charged plates where they’re trapped. This method of air purification can remove chemicals, smoke, and odor molecules.
UV Air Purifiers and More in Denver, CO
There’s a specific type of air purifier to target the most unpleasant of indoor air contaminants like bacteria and mold spores: the UV air purifier. This electronic air cleaner uses the power of ultraviolet light to disrupt the cellular functions of the cells of microorganisms, rendering them either inert (and therefore harmless) or killing them outright. The UV lights have no negative effects on people or pets.
