We all try to make better decisions about the food we put into our bodies and the amount of time we spend exercising. Unfortunately, many of us overlook the importance of keeping the air inside our home clean and free of toxins. The EPA estimates that the air we breathe inside our homes is two to five times dirtier than the air outside.
In order to protect your family, especially if one of the members of your family suffers from allergies or asthma, an air purifier improves the air quality of your home and can ensure that everyone will breathe easier and keep your home and family healthy.
Air Purifiers: What Do They Do?
In the simplest terms, air purifiers pull air through filters to catch harmful particles. There are different types of air purifiers, though the most common use HEPA filters. These, as part of an overall plan to remove irritating particles from your home, can reduce the pollution and help improve your family’s health.
Many families place air purifiers in one room, usually the most used room in the house such as a bedroom. However, if someone in your family suffers from severe allergies or has asthma, it may be important to have multiple air purifiers to keep your family members breathing clean air.
Improve Your Home’s Air Quality
The various types of pollution that can enter your home include:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
Besides cleaning the air you breathe, air purifiers can also protect your home from mold and rot. While using only the wattage between that of a table lamp and a computer, using air purifiers immediately following renovation work can protect your home by removing the contaminants in the air.
Benefits of Owning an Air Purifier
As mentioned, there are many benefits to using an air purifier, especially for those who suffer from respiratory conditions. Some of these benefits are:
- Removing unpleasant odors
- Trapping pet dander
- Neutralizing smoke
- Trapping dust
- Catching seasonal allergens
Finding the right filtration system and air purifier for your home can reduce the prevalence of bacteria and germs so your family can avoid the sneezes and illnesses associated with those risks. However, finding the right air purifier for your family’s needs and for the room or space you plan on using it in can be a confusing process. Your HVAC contractor should be able to recommend the right unit to handle your home’s square footage and environmental issues efficiently.
