While most people are aware of the consequences of outdoor air pollution, many don’t realize that indoor air pollution is sometimes an even bigger problem. If you’re concerned about the air quality in your Wildwood, Florida, home, consider installing an air purifier. An air purifier offers many advantages, including health benefits, a cleaner home, and a longer lifespan for your HVAC system.
Poor air quality in a home can cause a host of adverse health conditions, including headaches, coughing, and sneezing. These issues are often exacerbated in people who suffer from asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues. Installing a whole-home air purifier can remove about 99 percent of all airborne particles and 90 percent of germs and bacteria, greatly improving your indoor air quality.
Dust buildup comes from a variety of sources, including pet dander, pollen, and dirt, and it’s hard to stop it from accumulating on your home’s surfaces. Frequent dusting and vacuuming will help, but installing an air purifier to clean the air circulating in your home can minimize the amount of dust that accumulates in the first place.
Extend the Life of Your HVAC System
Dirt and dust buildup in your HVAC system decreases its efficiency and can lead to a host of problems that can shorten its lifespan. Installing an air purifier can help extend the life of your HVAC system by considerably decreasing the amount of dirt and dust that circulates in your home and ends up in your HVAC system.
Whole-Home or Portable Air Purifier?
You have two options when it comes to air purifiers: whole-home or portable. Whole-home air purifiers provide comprehensive cleansing for the air in your entire home. Other than changing the filter every few months, they require very little maintenance. Portable air filters don’t require much maintenance either, but they only cleanse the air in a small space, such as a bedroom.
