How to Make Your Home Healthier


2021 is here! If you’re like many homeowners, the last year has brought about many concerns about health. With COVID-19, folks are looking for ways to build immunity and prevent the transmission of disease among their households. While we can’t promise that any product will guarantee that COVID germs will not be transmitted and we encourage you to follow guidelines set forth by the CDC and take steps to make your home healthier to reduce the risk of virus transmission.

One way to do this is by ensuring that you are equipped with the right indoor air quality solutions. Even before our current health crisis, most Americans spend about 70% of their time within their homes. Don’t you want to ensure that the air you’re breathing is as healthy as it can be? You can start doing this by investing in a whole-house (versus portable) air purifier.

Whole-Home Air Purification: Why You Need It

Even prior to the pandemic, many homeowners were seeking ways to breathe the healthiest air possible. This may be reason enough to look into whole-home air purification. But it’s also a good idea to look for certain signs that indicate air purification is right for you:

  • Mildew and Mold Growth
  • Dirty Air Ducts
  • Smelly or Stale, Stuffy Air
  • Visible Dust and Particles in the Air
  • Irritated Allergy Symptoms, Including Asthma

Our team can assess your home and see if a whole-house air purifier will benefit you, and, more importantly, what type of whole-house air purifier will best serve you.

Alternatively, you could buy small, portable air purifiers. They will have a little impact on your indoor air quality, at least. But if you want to achieve true, reliable air purification, you should definitely reach out to our technicians and see what’s best for your specific needs. If you do choose a whole-house air purifier, you can count on cost-efficient operation and convenience!


As we alluded to above, small, portable air purifiers are only able to handle one or two rooms at a time. Why invest in multiple systems to be put in various spots in your home when a whole-house air purifier can be installed directly into your ductwork? This means its benefits reach your entire home.

This makes whole-house air purification much more cost-efficient than getting several portable systems—plus it saves space! Cleaner air also means you will not have to change your HVAC air filters as much.

We want to note here—your HVAC air filters are not intended to protect your indoor air quality. They are in place to protect the HVAC systems themselves. But when the air is cleaner, there are less particles for your HVAC system to take in, meaning the HVAC air filters will last longer.


As mentioned, whole-house air purifiers can be integrated directly into your HVAC system and/or its ductwork. This means you won’t have to worry about space being eaten up by smaller units, nor do you have to worry about the noise associated with all these systems.

In addition, you will have uniform indoor air quality throughout your living space, 24/7. While a whole-house air purifier won’t mitigate serious mold infestations, the use of one can keep this problem from happening to begin with.
