Outdoor air pollutants such as smog, automobile fumes, smoke and many others are harmful to our health. But, if you’re like most people, then you are spending more than half of your time indoors. Most of us don’t realize that our indoor air ultimately comes from outside, but is less filtered and circulated. This means the air quality inside your home can be even more harmful to your health than outdoor air. Because you value the health of those inside your home, it is extra important to eliminate air contaminants from the air. A simple way to make a big difference in your indoor air quality is to install an air-purification system.
The key to purchasing the right air-filtration system is finding out your home’s specific needs. Some systems require a filter and some do not; and some systems work best in small areas, others in larger areas. Working with a professional can help you decide which system is best for you.
The way these systems work is that they attach to your furnace or air handler to eliminate and destroy contaminants before circulating into your home. Depending on the system you opt for, your air quality can improve significantly.
To help you live comfortably, air purification systems offer these benefits:
- Remove particles from the air, such as dust, pollen, smog, pet dander, and other harmful contaminants.
- Help relieve symptoms of those suffering with allergies or asthma.
- Eliminate odors and vapors in the air.
- Increase energy efficiency while lowering utility bills
Think about this: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency finds that indoor air pollution is one of the top-five environmental risks to public health and also reports that indoor air can be substantially more polluted than the air outside.
