As clean as you may keep your home, most people are surprised to learn that the air in their home can actually be up to 10 times worse than the air outside. There are many reasons your home’s air can be polluted far worse than you realize, and for those sensitive to issues caused by poor air quality, an air purifier might be the best solution to removing those pollutants.
There are many different types of air purifiers on the market today. Some can be installed within your home’s heating and cooling system, while others are free-standing or portable. For those who are considering whether an air purifier is worth the investment, Short Pump Heating & Air wants to share some of the benefits to having one in your home:
1. Reduced strain on air filters – Air purifiers remove a lot of the finer debris from the air that normally your filters would be catching. The more debris in the air, the more often you will have to buy and change filters. Having an air purifier in the home will allow you to get more use out of each filter, keeping maintenance costs lower, and overall cleaner air.
2. Reduced odors – It may be very subtle, but there is a strong chance that odors have built up in your home over time. Because most homeowners spend so much time in their home, they become accustomed to the smell and it can be hard to notice it. For guests coming into your home, it may be a different story. Whether you have odors from pets, cooking, chemicals, or just daily time spent at home, air purifiers can help reduce odors in your home. They help remove odor-causing bacteria from the air, which leaves cleaner, fresher air for you and your guests.
3. Better quality of life – The most obvious reason to invest in an air purifier is to improve your overall quality of life. With better air quality in one of the places you spend most of your time, common colds, allergies, and symptoms like coughing and sneezing, can be significantly reduced by air purification systems.
