Are Air Purifiers Worth It?
Written by Jay Elert | November 12, 2019
Like any homeowner, you like to think of your home as a safe environment for you and your family. After all, that’s why we lock our windows and doors, maintain our major systems, and refresh the smoke detectors’ batteries. But if you don’t have an air purification system integrated into your HVAC system, you could be overlooking invisible dangers in your home.
Each time you breathe in, you’re potentially exposing yourself to pollen, mold spores, bacteria, and more! No one wants to think about breathing in mold and bacteria, but it’s a harsh reality for homes without a purification system. In fact, there are a number of benefits that come to installing a whole-home air purifier. They include:
We covered this one a little bit above, but having an air purification system in place can really improve the quality of your home’s air. Air purifiers can not only greatly reduce dust, pet dander, pollen, and other pollutants, but they can also help to filter out bacteria and viruses, saving your family from potential illness. If you have someone in your home who seems to always have a cold or really bad asthma, give an air purifier a try! With all they do, they can really lead to a healthier home.
Reduction in Dust
If you love a clean home, then finding dust on items you’ve recently cleaned is sure to be a thorn in your side. Dust is not only annoying and unsightly, but it can also affect anyone in your home with breathing issues. When you invest in a whole-home air purifier, your system will trap a majority of the dust – all you need to do is change out the filter.
No Unsightly Units
Since whole-home air purifiers are installed in your AC system, you don’t need to try to hide a portable air purifier to keep up the aesthetic of your home. That also means no cord to trip over or accidentally unplug!
Extension of HVAC System Life
It might seem a little strange that clean air can help extend the life of your HVAC unit, but it’s true! Your whole-home air purifier catches dust, contaminants, and other particles that might otherwise end up settling within your cooling system’s filter, making it work harder than necessary to produce cool air.
With all of these benefits, it’s easy to see why air purifiers are worth the investment. You’ll not only have a cleaner, healthier home, but you’ll also extend the life of your HVAC systems, while having a purifier that’s out of sight!
