Breathe in Fresh Spring Air with an Air Purification System

With spring cleaning top of mind, don’t forget to think about your indoor air quality! While removing dust bunnies and replacing outdated items can improve the look and feel of your home, it won’t necessarily improve the air you breathe in. This is because indoor allergens will continue to find a way in if there’s nothing to stop them.

With the attempts in recent years to become more energy efficient, homes are now being built tighter with more resistance to the outside air. Unfortunately, solving one problem has inadvertently created another—the need for more fresh air in sealed up homes. The materials used in today’s buildings and home furnishings may off-gas harmful chemicals, flame retardants and volatile organic compounds. This is why investing in a whole house air purifier is critical.

Breathe in Fresh Air

Investing in an air purification system this spring is a great way to keep your home and the air you breathe clean for years to come. Whole house air filtration systems provide numerous benefits, including:

Improving indoor air quality. Combined with proper ventilation, an air purification system can effectively filter out up to 90% of the harmful contaminants hiding in your home’s air. Pollutants like dust, pollen, chemical toxins and other allergens can seriously affect your health and the air quality of your home. This can provide much needed relief for those with asthma, indoor allergies and other respiratory issues.

Lowering your heating and cooling costs. Changing air filters every 30 to 90 days helps improve the air quality in your home and cuts down on the energy use of your HVAC equipment. Dirty air filters can introduce contaminants into the air and reduce your HVAC system’s efficiency.

Neutralizes unpleasant odors. In addition to improving the indoor air quality in your home, it can also help to remove odors. However, some odors caused by mold, mildew or other growths cannot be filtered out and should be addressed right away.

Enhancing quality of life. Not only does fresh indoor air keep you and your family safe, but it can also improve your quality of life overall. Air purification systems can improve your sleep by removing those indoor allergens and hazardous particles. When you’re more well rested, you’re more prepared to tackle the day.

Selecting the Right System

There are several things to consider before investing in and installing an air purification system. You’ll want to consider the size and space you have, budget, filter type and maintenance needed.
