If you’re like many other homeowners, when you hear the term “air quality,” you might think about the air outside, not the air inside. We get it–we don’t think many homeowners think about their indoor air quality at all unless it’s so bad you can’t ignore it (we hope it never gets to that point!)
Unfortunately, the truth is the air you’re breathing might not be as healthy as you think. You also might not be as comfortable as you could be. Many folks think that all they need for air filtration indoors is their HVAC air filter, but this air filter is meant to protect the equipment itself, not your indoor air!
No, for that, you’ll want to consider the installation of a whole-home air purifier. Read on to learn more!
Do I Really Need an Air Purifier?
Do you want to breathe the healthiest air possible? No, you might not need an air purifier in order to enjoy your home, but you may very well want one if you notice any of the following symptoms in your home:
- Excessive dust buildup on the surfaces of your home, no matter how often you clean.
- Increased allergy and asthma symptoms among household occupants.
- Condensation forming on the windows or walls in your home.
- Smelly, musty air, especially when your air conditioner is running. This can indicate mold or mildew growth in your ductwork.
If you really want your indoor air properly assess, the best thing you can do is give our team a call!
The Benefits of a Whole-Home Air Purifier
“So, why can’t I just buy a couple of portable air purifiers and call it a day?” you may be wondering. You could, but this really isn’t going to address your entire living space, nor is it going to tackle all the indoor air pollutants you might be dealing with. Plus, a whole-home system is both cost-effective and convenient!
Small, portable air purifiers can manage a room or two at a time. But this means you’re investing in multiple units to have placed throughout your home, and you’ll have to continuously buy and replace filters for them. A whole-house system will ultimately be a more cost-effective choice. Plus, cleaner air means you won’t have to replace your HVAC filters so often, either.
The convenience of these systems is that you can have one installed directly into your ductwork. It doesn’t have to take up valuable space inside your home, nor do you have to deal with the noise that would otherwise be associated with using multiple portable systems throughout your living space.
Lastly, you’re going to have uniform indoor air quality throughout the home, 24/7. While a whole-house air purifier cannot mitigate all indoor air quality problems (like humidity–you’ll want to consider a dehumidifier for this issue), it can certainly help you breathe easier.
