When you are looking to improve the quality of the indoor air in your home, you are doing more than just avoid experiencing allergy symptoms. That is why at Air Pros, we advise our clients to consider installing an air filtration system for your entire house. Air purifiers, also called air cleaners, can be installed in your air ducts to help remove allergens, bacteria, and viruses so that you can breathe easier and feel better.
Removing Indoor Allergens and Clean the Air
Keep in mind that indoor air can become more polluted than indoor air. In fact, the EPA states that indoor air can be as much as two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. This is primarily due to the fact that energy efficiency relies on having minimal amounts of indoor and outdoor air mixing. This means that efforts are made to make sure that buildings are airtight so that outdoor air does not enter the building and cooled or heated air does not leave. When opening a door or a window, you allow outdoor air into the building, which may have pollen, dust, dirt, odors, and exhaust fumes in it. Since the air becomes trapped inside the building, the levels of indoor air pollution rise. The good news is that an air purifier can help remove indoor allergens and clean the air, especially if you choose whole-house or whole-building air purifiers.
Eliminate Particles that Contribute to COPD and Asthma Symptoms
When indoor air contains a lot of air pollution from dust, dirt, pollen, viruses, mold, or pet dander, it can contribute to an increase in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma symptoms and result in breathing difficulties for the very young and the very old. HEPA air filters/purifiers help reduce symptoms of acute and chronic lung conditions by removing the particulate matter in the air. They do this through advanced air filtration techniques, like ionizers and air filters that are able to remove extremely fine particles. Air filters with IV-C lights can even kill bacteria and viruses.
Minimize Indoor Allergy Symptoms
If you or anyone in your home suffers from indoor allergy symptoms, installing an air purifier may help reduce the symptoms. This is because air purifiers help remove grass, pet dander, tree, weed, and flower pollen from your indoor air by trapping it in the HEPA air filter.
Reduce the Number of Mold Spores in Your Home
HEPA air filters/purifiers remove mold spores, which can be transported throughout your home via the air duct system. By removing mold from your home’s indoor air, you may experience fewer allergy symptoms from inhaling the spores, and the mold will be less likely to infiltrate all the rooms of your house.
