The air in our homes has a huge impact on the health of us and our families.
- The inside air that we breathe is loaded with pollutants that can cause allergies, breathing problems, and serious medical conditions.
There are some ways that you can improve the purity of the air inside your home. Frequently replacing your air filter is a great way to improve the quality of air inside your home. Your air filter works to get rid of several of the airborne pollutants in your house such as pet hair, dust, and pollen. However, over time your air filter will become dirty and clogged and remove contaminants less efficiently. For the best indoor air conditions, most Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professionals request that you change 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 remove pollutants in the air not captured by your air filter. Air purifiers come in more than one main configuration. The first type, portable whole-apartment air purifiers, can be plugged into any room, and they purify the air in just that room. Portable whole-apartment 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 HVAC program in order to purify the air throughout your entire home. While they may be more effective, permanent whole-home air purifiers are much more overpriced, and require a slightly more invasive replacement. If you are looking to improve the quality of the air inside your home, contact your local Heating, Ventilation, and A/C supplier today to see if an whole-apartment air purifier is right for you!
