Many homes in Peachtree City, Georgia, and the rest of the United States have air that’s more polluted indoors than outdoors. Modern homes are well-insulated, but as a result, many pollutants end up trapped inside with conditioned air. If dust, pet dander, pollen, and other contaminants indoors are causing you eye irritation, asthma or allergy symptoms, or other health problems, here are three reasons to consider installing an air purifier.
Helps Your System Work Better
The air filters in your HVAC system have an important role: They catch tiny particles in your home’s air. But these filters can eventually become clogged with debris and cause an inconvenient, costly breakdown. An air purifier can help the air filter for your heater or air conditioner last longer by removing contaminants before they get to the filter. Purifiers can also improve your system’s airflow, reduce your utility bills, and prevent noises caused by excess dirt or dust.
Removes Bad Smells
Air purifiers can catch smoke particles, biological growth, and many other sources of unpleasant smells. A UV air purifier uses ultraviolet, or UVC light, that’s normally blocked by the outdoor air to eliminate odors from your home. Organisms like bacteria, viruses, and dust mites can often produce stale, musty, or rotting smells. But these lights damage the DNA of these and other microorganisms and keep them from reproducing. As a result, your home smells better.
Improves Your Family’s Health
By trapping the microorganisms that cause colds and other illnesses and keeping them from spreading, air purifiers can help your family stay healthier. Air pollution has even been linked to a variety of health problems, so cleaner air might help you improve your overall health.
