Want to know the benefits of adding an air purifier to your home HVAC? At Aspen Creek Heating and Air, we want you to know the benefits too! Pollutants in the air we breathe cause a lot of unnecessary health issues, and while we can’t entirely control what happens outdoors, we can definitely control what happens with the air inside of our homes, giving us the utmost quality possible.
There are many benefits of adding an air purifier to your home HVAC – here are our top 3:
- Pets and Dander
If you own a pet, chances are you have many allergens floating around from the dander and hair they shed. A whole-home air purifier can help eliminate those pesky smells, and allergies that arise causing unnecessary respiratory distress. You will need to consider an air purifier that specifically specializes in pet problems in the air. Say goodbye to itchy, stingy eyes, and an odor-filled home.
- Attached Living
If you live in a condominium, townhome, or other attached building, sometimes you will get food smells from the neighbors wafting into your home, or even worse, cigarette smoke! These odors are long lingering and horrible if you have asthma or allergies to them. Installing the correct air purifier can help remedy the issue promptly, so you won’t have to smell what the neighbor is up to every day.
- Winter Germs
When winter rolls around, we are all too aware of the airborne viruses that arise causing flu symptoms such as coughing and sneezing and sometimes pneumonia. Bacteria and germs can wreak havoc on these types of environments, and the only way to help destroy them is by adding an air purification system preferably with carbon filters to help eliminate them indefinitely.
There are several different varieties that you can add to your HVAC or furnace system, including:
HEPA – High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting (HEPA) filters are probably the most recognized and popular types of air purification systems. These purifiers use a fan to pull the air through a pleated filter that traps minuscule particles and sends clean air out.
Electrostatic – Charges trapped particles, which are then attracted to plates inside the purifier that have an opposite charge.
Gas-Phase – A gas-phase purifier uses activated carbon to remove gases and odors from the air.
No matter what you choose, regular maintenance will ensure the duct work is intact and your HVAC system is running at its best. A good cleaning will be necessary on a yearly basis, more if your system is used often. Having an efficient running HVAC system will ensure your home is free of toxins such as mold and mildew, as well as other unhealthy airborne germs.
