How Air Purifiers Can Help Save Your Indoor Air Quality
How clean is your air? Heating and cooling your Winona-area home is essential, but so is the quality of your indoor air. That’s where air purifiers come in. These systems can help boost poor indoor air quality (which the EPA rightfully ranks as a top health concern) and even help you feel more comfortable. How? The pros at River City Heating & Air Conditioning explain below.
What Does an Air Purifier Do?
Air purifiers remove harmful particles like bacteria, viruses, pollen, and mold from the air. They eliminate up to 99 percent of irritants and are 40 times more effective than a standard furnace filter.
How an Air Purifier Benefits You
Starting with the obvious, the air purification process captures and kills nearly all airborne contaminants. This is crucial, as indoor pollution can be caused by everything from dirt and dust to household cleaners and even cooking. The best air purifiers filter all that out without you even realizing and can even help improve your health—more on that below.
Many airborne contaminants have the potential to make you sick, whether from allergies or illnesses. By eliminating those triggers, home air purifiers help create a healthier environment that you can truly feel.
Many airborne pollutants—particularly mold and mildew—can create unpleasant odors. So the more your air purification system runs, the fresher (and better-smelling) your home can be.
Allergens and irritants in your home’s air can be frustrating enough to deal with during the daytime. But at night, they can be downright aggravating. Between tickling your nose and causing congestion or watery eyes, these pollutants can interrupt your sleep cycle.
Air purifiers are effective in helping you drift off more easily by killing off those allergy or asthma triggers.
Improves HVAC Life
Your furnace and air conditioner already use an air filter to help catch contaminants as they pass through your ductwork. But as that debris gets caught in the filter, it can clog and block airflow. This makes it harder for your heating and cooling systems to operate, adding stress onto them and potentially causing them to break down. By helping your filter capture those pollutants, a purifier can help your furnace and A/C function and actually increase their life expectancy.
Peace of Mind
Simply put, air purifiers can help you relax. By knowing your air is safe and clean, you can kick back in the comfort of your own home without worry.
