COVID-19 has brought a lot of concerns about health to the surface, particularly the health of our own homes. While we can’t promise any products that will guarantee that COVID germs won’t be transmitted, we urge you to follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC, and do what you can to help make your home as healthy an environment as possible.
One way to do this is by making sure you’re equipped with the right indoor air quality products and services. Most Americans spend 70% of their time in their homes, and that number may be even higher these days. Don’t you want to make sure the air you’re breathing there is as healthy as possible? You can do this with a whole-house air purifier (versus a singular, portable air purifier) Read on to learn more!
The Power of Whole-Home Air Purification
Even before the pandemic, homeowners were looking for ways to breathe the best quality air possible. This could be reason enough to look into whole-home air purification. But you should also watch for these signs, that can be easily resolved with the right air purifier:
- Mold and mildew development
- Dirty ductwork
- Smelly or stale, stuffy air
- Dust and other particles visibly floating through the air
- Allergy symptom flare-ups among family members
The best way to see if a whole-house air purifier will benefit you is to contact our professionals for guidance.
In the meantime, you could buy small, portable air purifying units to use in your home. They’ll have some impact on your indoor air quality, at least. If you want to achieve the best results, though, you should definitely reach out to our pros to see what’s best for your home’s specific needs. A whole-home system is:
Small, portable air purifiers can only handle one or two rooms at a time. Rather than investing in multiple systems to put in various spots in your home, a whole-home air purifier can be installed directly into your ductwork to address the entire house.
This makes it more cost-efficient than getting several portable systems (plus it saves space). Cleaner air also means you won’t have to change your HVAC air filters as much—these air filters come standard with your HVAC systems, are there to protect those systems (not your indoor air) and typically need to be changed every 1-3 months otherwise.
As we stated above, a whole-home air purifier can be integrated directly into your HVAC system and/or its ductwork. This means you don’t have to worry about space being taken up by smaller units nor do you have to worry about the noise associated with all these various systems.
Additionally, you’ll have uniform IAQ throughout your home 24/7. While a whole-home air purifier cannot mitigate serious mold infestations, the use of one can help this problem from happening to begin with.
A whole-home air purifier is an ideal choice for many homeowners. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us to find out if you’re one of them!
