Our health, as well as the health of your family, is dependent on the oxygen we breathe in our homes! Unfortunately, the air we breathe contains contaminants that can trigger allergies, respiratory illness, and other medical conditions.
- Here are some suggestions to improve the quality of the air in your house.
Changing your air filter on a regular basis is a great strategy to enhance the air quality in your house! Many airborne toxins in your home, such as pet hair, dust, and pollen, are eliminated by your air filter. Over time, your air filter will become clogged and unable to constantly filter pollutants out of the air in your home. For the best indoor air conditions, most Heating and Air Conditioning professionals suggest increasing your air filter every 30 to 60 days. Another way to improve the air quality inside your house is to use a whole-home air purifier. Air purifiers work to remove pollutants in the air not captured by your air filter. Air purifiers come in two main configurations. The first type, portable whole-home air purifiers, can be plugged into any room, and work to purify the air in just that room. Portable whole-home air purifiers require much less of an initial investment. The other main type of whole-home air purifier is permanent, and is installed in-line with your Heating and Air Conditioning plan in order to purify the air throughout your entire home instead of just one room. While they may be more effective, permanent whole-home air purifiers are much more expensive, and the installation process is more in depth. If you are looking to improve the quality of the air inside your home consult with your local Heating and Air Conditioning supplier to see if a whole-home air purifier is right for you and which one is best for your home and budget.
