Good indoor air quality is essential for the best living conditions. However, there are a number of things that can affect the quality of the air you breathe inside your home. Fortunately, air purifiers can help improve your indoor air quality.
In this article, air quality HVAC expert Cooper Bros shares some of the ways that an air purifier can help clean the air inside your home.
Prevent excess moisture and microbial growth. Moisture cannot be completely removed from any household, so keeping it at a moderate level should be your priority. Having too much moisture inside your house can affect air quality and promote microbial growth, while having too little can affect your health. For example, dry air can cause sore throats and trigger allergies. With air purifiers, you can better manage indoor humidity levels and prevent microbial growth.
Minimize dust buildup. By having an air purifier installed during your next air conditioner replacement, you can reduce dust buildup in your home and improve indoor air quality. Keep in mind that dust consists of various particles, and can include pollen and even shed skin cells. These are air pollutants that can cause allergic reactions and other health risks. By installing an air purifier, the risks for allergies and respiratory illnesses will be significantly reduced.
Reduce pet dander. If you have pets at home, installing an air purifier can reduce the amount of pet dander in your home and improve your indoor air quality. Pet dander may not be an issue for your family, but if you often have guests over, it can be a health risk to them. Make sure your home is a safe place for your friends by installing an air purification system. Most HVAC systems do remove some of the dander by trapping it in the air filters, but an air purifier offers additional protection.
