The air you breathe every day has a direct impact on your health and wellness. Although your HVAC system employs a furnace filter designed to screen out airborne particles such as dust, pollen, and animal dander, this filter is meant primarily to protect your HVAC system from excessive interior buildup, rather than significantly improve the quality of your indoor air. Poor indoor air quality can exacerbate respiratory conditions such as asthma and allergies, while also causing discomfort and chronic symptoms in healthy individuals. Whole-home air cleaners are designed to fit easily into the existing structure of your home’s HVAC system; these products work actively around the clock to promote cleaner indoor air by removing the particles your regular furnace filter cannot, improving home comfort, long-term health, and even the total amount you’re likely to see on your monthly energy bills.
Fewer Indoor Allergens
Allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions are typically triggered or worsened by poor indoor air quality. While your furnace filter does screen out some percentage of the most common airborne particles likely to circulate through your home, a significant amount of these particles can easily pass through the filter, continuing to circulate through your home and affecting your health every time you inhale. Whole-home air cleaners, however, specifically target these particles, removing a much higher percentage of them from your indoor air so that every breath you take is allergen-free. When the air in your home is cleaner, you’ll experience an improvement in the severity and occurrence of the symptoms associated with allergies and asthma flare-ups. Furthermore, whole-home air cleaners remove these particles without creating ozone as a byproduct, a substance which may cause respiratory irritation in some individuals.
Less Household Dust
The benefits of whole-home air cleaners extend beyond those that directly affect your health. If you don’t enjoy frequent spates of cleaning and dusting, a whole-home air cleaner can help you spend less time performing these unsavory activities as well. Because your whole-home air cleaner is so effective at removing airborne particles, it will also reduce the amount of dust and pollen available to settle onto the surfaces of your home. Less dust will mean less dusting, which allows you to spend your valuable time pursuing other interests, rather than devoting several hours each week to cleaning.
Lower HVAC Bills
Whole-home air cleaners can also help you lower your HVAC bills as well, further improving the returns you’ll get on this valuable investment. Cleaner air for you means cleaner air for your HVAC system as well, which will reduce the rate of dirt and dust buildup on your furnace and air conditioner components. Lower rates of dirt and dust buildup will translate directly into greater HVAC efficiency between tune-ups, which keeps the amount of energy and money required to heat and cool your home as low as possible.
