While getting an air purifier won’t solve all your problems, it can do wonders when it comes to keeping your home’s air clean. Pollutants such as smoke, dander, dust, and allergens can easily reach elevated levels in your home. As the typical human spends 90% of their time indoors, making sure that the indoor environment is sufficiently clean is most likely a worthwhile goal. Based and proudly serving Flemington and the surrounding region, Davis Heating & Cooling is here to help you with all your HVAC needs, including installing, repairing, or upgrading your home air purification system.

Ventilation & Purification

Before we begin talking about the reasons and benefits of air purification, one word on ventilation is advisable. While air purifiers can help reduce airborne pollutants, they will never be able to eliminate them entirely. What is more, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the best way to improve indoor air quality is quality ventilation. However, this is only true to the degree that the air outside your home is cleaner and fresher than the air inside. In urban environments, it may be a coin toss. The best strategy is obviously to set up your HVAC system to work smoothly and efficiently, with well taken care of ventilation as well as air purifiers to filter out smoke, dust, pet dander, and pollen. Anecdotally, homeowners with air purifiers report feeling better when they have their device running, and this not yet even to mention the likely long-term health benefits of breathing pollutant-reduced air in your home. 

5 Reasons an Air Purification System is Worth the Investment

Are you considering whether or not to get an in-house air purification set up to filter out indoor air pollutants? Consider these five benefits:

#1: Help Dwellers with Respiratory Problems

If anyone in the house suffers from a respiratory disease such as asthma, certain allergens can set off attacks and lead to reduced lung function and severe irritation. For families with individuals with respiratory issues, doctors regularly recommend keeping home air quality high, so they can breathe easier with less risk of having their symptoms triggered by pollutants. Air purification systems can help reduce instances of asthma attacks and also help reduce their severity when they occur. 

#2: You Live with a Smoker

Secondhand smoke can lead to a number of well-established negative side effects. Living with a smoker can mean your house stinks of smoke all the time and can lead to short-term symptoms such as more regular headaches and long-term risks such as increased chances of developing certain forms of cancer. To help reduce the odors and risks of such a living situation, air purifiers are very useful for eliminating smoke and tobacco pollutants. If you live with or near a smoker, getting an air purification system can make a noticeable difference on how you feel. 

#3: You Have Pets as well as Allergies

One common type of allergy that can especially cause animal lovers some woe is being allergic to pet dander. In large enough quantities, pet dander can have an impact on everyone’s respiratory system, but some people are more susceptible than others. In particular, small children tend to be more sensitive to pet dander than adults — so if you have children or are sensitive to pet dander, an air purifier would likely be an excellent investment. 

#4: You Live on a Busy Street or Near Construction

Every car that drives by and every time the earthmover is operating, you can be sure that more and more dust and other airborne particles are being kicked up. If you live near a site or road where machinery consistently kicks up debris, an air purifier may be a necessity for you, to help you breathe a little better.

#5: Your House Smells Dirty

From sports playing teenagers to dirty diapers, the amount of potential smells that build up in your house can be difficult to combat. For people living in apartments or working in office buildings, drafts often come from next door bringing other unpleasant smells into your home or workplace. One effective way to reduce the impact of dirty smells is to, first, keep your house or office clean, and second, keep the air in your house or office clean. Getting an air purification system installed can help you with this. 

What Is the Best Whole Home Air Purifier?

Now, you can always get a tabletop air purifier, for help purifying individual rooms and spaces. However, a true whole-house air purifier is much more effective. A whole system air purifier is connected up with your HVAC system as an extra filter in your ductworks. You have many different options at different price points to choose from for a whole-home air purifier, depending on your specific goals, price-point, and other factors.
