When most people think about “air quality,” they’re focused on what’s in the air outside, such as pollen or mold levels. But actually, your indoor air quality can be worse than that of outdoors, especially without the right products and services in place. With Americans spending more time indoors than ever before, it makes sense that you’d want to find the best way to make the air you breathe as healthy as possible. This is especially true if you have household members who suffer from allergies or asthma.
So, perhaps an air purifier is the answer? While it would be easy, and certainly cheaper, to go with a portable system, a whole-house system is really what’s going to do the trick. Read on to learn why.
You Might Need a Whole-House Air Purifier If…
We can’t think of a single homeowner who wouldn’t like to breathe the best, quality air possible. But how do you really know if a whole-house air purifier may be what you need? Here are some signs!
- You have condensation on your walls or windows.
- You’ve noticed moldy books, shoes, or other items in your home.
- You have dirty ductwork.
- Your indoor air is smelly or stuffy.
- You have household members with increased allergy or asthma symptoms.
The best way to know for sure if you need a whole-house air purifier, and what type of whole-house air purifier you need, is to contact our team so we can do an assessment and help you make an educated decision based on your home’s specific needs.
What Are the Benefits of a Whole-House Air Purifier?
Look, we get it. It’s super tempting to purchase small, portable air purifier units to use in your home. And they will have some effect on your indoor air quality. However, if you really want to achieve quality results with your indoor air quality, you should get in touch with our team to see what type(s) of whole-home system will serve you best, whether it’s an air filtration system, an ionization or electrostatic air purifier, or even a UV air purifier that gets installed directly into your ductwork.
Whole-house air purifiers are the superior option because:
Small air purifier units can maybe manage one or two rooms at the most. Rather than investing in multiple units to have throughout your entire living space, a whole-house air purifier addresses the issue from a centralized location.
You won’t have to worry about maintaining several units—you’ll just have one system to deal with. Additionally, the cleaner air you’ll get from a whole-house system will lessen how often you have to change out or clean your standard HVAC air filters.
Whole-house air purifiers can be directly integrated into your HVAC system or ductwork. This means you don’t have to worry about valuable space being eaten up by smaller units, nor do you have to worry about the noise associated with multiple smaller units.
