What a lot of Roswell area homeowners don’t realize is that their indoor air quality can actually be worse than that of the outdoors, particularly without the right products and services in place. One of these products is an air purifier!
There are a few different types of air purifiers. Yes, there is a portable air purifier, but that’s not what we’re here to talk about today. We want to discuss whole-house air purifiers and how they will benefit your home–ionization, electronic, and UV air purifiers can each accomplish this in different ways.
Read on as we uncover the benefits of having a whole-house air purifier installed, from breathing better in your home to enjoying more efficient heating and cooling in your home.
Breathe Better in Your Home
Did you know that indoor air can actually have 2-5 times the level of contaminants found outdoors? This is according to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), but an air purifier can help!
The problem is that a lack of good ventilation in the home combined with outdoor weather events can bring in contaminants like dust, allergens, and other debris. Plus, things can get trapped in the home like cooking fumes, mold growth from too much moisture, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from things like cleaning supplies.
This can not only make a healthy person ill, but it can exacerbate the symptoms of someone who already has allergies or asthma.
A More Efficient HVAC Unit
Did you know that your HVAC systems can perform more powerfully and efficiently when they’re clean? This includes their ductwork, where dust, dirt, debris, and mold spores can live. Fortunately, duct cleaning and the installation of a UV air purifier can help with this.
You see a UV air purifier attacks and eliminates contaminants thriving inside the air ducts. This can include viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and mildew. But a UV air purifier gets rid of these contaminants before they have the chance to get in your indoor air or impact the interior components of your HVAC system.
Electronic air purifiers also help, as they eliminate dust and other small particles that can be circulating in the air and making their way back into your ductwork, causing your HVAC systems to work inefficiently.
No More Odor!
Another great thing about air purifiers, of all types, is that it helps eliminate odors from your home. Whether it’s moisture causing mildew, VOCs, or cooking fumes, you don’t have to live with these smells. A properly chosen and installed air purifier will help resolve all types of odors.
Great for the Kids!
As we alluded to above, good air quality is good for your health! This is especially important for homes with kids who are still developing their immune systems. Not only do you deserve more breathable air, but so does your entire family!
