Many of the houses in Ballantyne, North Carolina, have great insulation. But that tight thermal envelope can keep pollutants indoors along with conditioned air. An indoor air purifier sends air through a filter that’s similar to the one for your HVAC system. It can capture dirt, dust, pet dander, biological growth, pollen and many other contaminants. Read on to learn three reasons to use an air purifier in your home.
Eliminate Bad Smells
Poor indoor air quality often leads to stale, musty or rotting smells. An indoor air cleaner catches many of the substances that create these scents, making your home more welcoming and comfortable for visitors. It can also help you get rid of unappealing smells produced by cooking, your cat’s litter box or dirty laundry.
Make Your Home Healthier
Improving your indoor air quality with an air purifier can prevent eye irritation, rashes, asthma symptoms, allergy symptoms, sore throats, fatigue, headaches and many other issues. Some models can even remove some bacteria and viruses from your home’s air, keeping illnesses such as the flu from spreading. They help many people with weakened immune systems stay as healthy as possible.
Keep Your HVAC System Working Well
An air purifier will help you prevent pollutants from accumulating in your ductwork and keep your HVAC system’s filter clean for longer. It can extend your unit’s life by reducing wear and preventing inconvenient, costly breakdowns. For the most effective, efficient system, you should change your air filter at least every few months and have your equipment inspected by a professional once every year.
