Protect Your Family With a Whole House Air Purifier

You may have read recently about indoor air quality and wondered what it means and why it is important. The concept of cleaning the air in your home or building has been around for a long time, but because of COVID-19 more people have become aware of the importance and benefits of clean indoor air. Did you know that according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air indoors can be more polluted than smog? Since most people spend 90 percent of their lives indoors this is now more important than ever.

Why Does Indoor Air Quality Matter?

in Air Quality Indicators

Some of the effects of poor indoor air quality include:

• Short term effects: Nasal congestion, irritated eyes and throat, dry skin and lips, dizziness, nausea, headaches, and fatigue. • Long term effects: Chronic respiratory conditions, worsening of asthma and allergy symptoms, chronic sinusitis, and other lung conditions.

Because of the short and long term effects of poor indoor air quality the best solution is a whole house air purifier, guaranteeing you will always have uniform indoor air quality, 24/7. To truly be considered a whole house air purifier it has to be built into the ductwork so that the air is cleaned as it passes through your home’s HVAC system. Single-area air cleaners may help the air in one room, but they don’t address the pollutants floating in the air in the rest of your home. If you want to improve the indoor air quality throughout your entire home, a whole house air filter purification system will remove pollutants from the air in the entire home.

It is also important to note that if you do become sick for any reason, the pollutants in the air in your home can exacerbate and/or worsen your condition. For example, dust mites and pet dander can work together with respiratory viruses to make asthma worse.
