Breathe Safer Air With a Home Air Purifier System
From covid to wildfire smoke, much has happened recently to make us more aware of the health risks lurking in the air we breathe. According to the US EPA, levels of indoor air pollution are often 2 to 5 times higher than outdoors. A home air purifier system can remove the contaminants that endanger your family’s health.
Here’s what you need to know about the risks of poor indoor air quality, the benefits of a whole home air purifier, and how to make the best choice for your family.
Indoor air pollution: sources and health risks
Most are invisible. Some are even odorless. But chances are, your home has airborne contaminants that are risking your health. Here are just some of the sources:
- Particulate matter and other byproducts of combustion (from smoke and woodstoves, for example)
- Carbon monoxide (from damaged heating and ventilation systems, for example)
- Mold that grows in moist areas and becomes airborne
- Viruses and bacteria
- VOCs from paints, building materials, cleaning products, furniture, rugs and more
- Pet dander
Airborne contaminants could be the cause behind health symptoms like these:
- Asthma attacks
- Respiratory allergies
- Headaches, dizziness and fatigue
- Skin rashes
- Eye, nose and throat irritation
- Heart disease
Getting a home air purifier system is the easiest way to combat poor indoor air quality and make the air in your home safer to breathe.
4 benefits of a home air purifier system
1. Keep you healthier
Especially if you or your family members have allergies, a home air purifier system can reduce symptoms and make you more comfortable.
Purifiers can also keep you healthier by destroying up to 99% of bacteria and viruses in the air, including covid. They can also reduce your risk of developing more serious health conditions by eliminating exposure to dangerous contaminants.
2. Eliminate odors
VOCs, mold and particulate matter in the air can cause nasty odors. Not to mention odors from cooking and pets. Candles and air fresheners can only cover the odors up, not get rid of them. The right air purifier actually destroys the odors in your home.
3. Make your whole home cleaner
Along with cleaner air that’s free of mold and other contaminants, you’ll also notice less dust with a whole home air purifier. These systems are more convenient than room filtration devices, such as HEPA filters, that only work in a small area, and only the air that runs through them.
4. Keep your family safe and comfortable
You get the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re doing everything you can to provide a safe home and take care of your family.
How do HVAC air purifiers work?
HVAC air purifiers, or whole home air purifier systems, are devices that are installed inside your HVAC ductwork. There are different technologies available, but in general they use UV light and ions to continuously destroy contaminants in the air and on surfaces throughout your home.
That’s why they are much better solutions than single-room filtration devices. They take care of your entire home. They actively reach out into the air to destroy contaminants instead of passively treating only the air that runs through them.
BONUS: They are quiet!
