Air purifiers are nifty little devices that use internal fans to pull air through a series of filters to remove harmful particles. Even though they only cost a few hundred dollars, you might still be having second thoughts about purchasing one. That’s why, in today’s article, one of the top HVAC installation contractors in the area shares three good reasons why you should invest in an air purifier for your home.
Healthier air for your family. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air is two to five times dirtier than outdoor air –and in extreme cases, up to 100 times dirtier! With the help of an air purifier, you can reduce the amount of pollutants in your indoor air, making it a little safer to breathe.
Fewer allergy attacks due to pets. Air purifiers effectively trap airborne allergens released by pets. You may love your dog, but you can definitely do without all the fur and pet dander in the air. HVAC companies recommend air purifiers to pet owners to help them combat pet allergies.
An air purifier will trap dust. In addition to pet dander, air purifiers also trap dust before it has time to settle. This reduces buildup, leaving you with less to clean and vacuum.
It combats seasonal allergies. Seasonal allergies, or hay fever, can be a major problem for many people at certain times of the year. Air purifiers can help keep sneezing bouts at bay by trapping pollen particles released by trees, grasses and weeds.
It stops germs from spreading. Now more than ever, homeowners are concerned about the spreading of sickness and germs. You can alleviate your worries by purchasing a true HEPA air purifier fitted with UV bulbs that neutralize up to 99.97% of airborne germs.
