According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American lives 93% of their life indoors. And with the recent climate, people are spending more and more time inside their homes. By being inside for this extensive amount of time, homeowners need to ensure that their home’s indoor air quality is clean and safe.
The primary way to promote indoor air quality in your home is through an air purifier. Air purifiers have many benefits for the health and safety of your family.
Four benefits of an air purifier in your home
1. Air purifiers create cleaner and healthier air
Air purifiers pull the air in your home through a series of filters that remove harmful airborne particles, such as dust or bacteria. The air purifier then circulates the purified air back into the room. Air purifiers continually complete this process and work to keep your home environment healthy.
The EPA estimates that indoor air is two to five times dirtier than outdoor air. By removing contaminants, an air purifier heightens the indoor air quality in your home.
Additionally, air purifiers help reduce carbon dioxide, radon, tobacco smoke, and airborne germs and bacteria that are found in your home and dangerous for your health. Air purifiers not only provide benefits by removing these pollutants in the short-term, but by protecting you from serious health problems that could arise later in life.
2. Air purifiers eliminate allergens
Believe it or not, the air in your home is filled with dirt, dust, pet odor, pollen, and other allergens. By breathing in these impurities in the air, your body’s natural response will be some form of an allergic reaction.
Asthma can be triggered by contaminants found in your home’s indoor air, as well. These health problems are a disturbance to our daily lives and can result in seasonal allergies, respiratory issues, headaches, and more.
While your indoor air quality may not be the ultimate cause of your health issues, poor air quality in your home triggers your symptoms. To counteract these reactions, you can install an air purifier to remove these allergens from the indoor air in your home. As a result, your family will be breathing in a cleaner, healthier air.
3. Air purifiers result in a longer life for your HVAC filter
While not a health benefit, air purifiers also remove the demand on the air filter in your HVAC system to catch all contaminants. Your HVAC air filtration system partnered with an air purifier should prolong the life of your HVAC system. However, it’s important to note that a whole-home air purification system, such as an in-duct air purifier, can provide amazing results for your home’s indoor air quality.
4. Air purifiers can enhance the quality of life
Many homeowners with air purifiers have identified benefits going beyond physical health and into emotional and mental health, as well.
From lessened stress to better sleep quality, air quality affects your mental health. Homeowners with air purifiers in their homes have spoken of the ways that indoor air quality affects their daily lives. Also, air purifiers can give you peace of mind by removing the worry of you and your family breathing in pollutants and becoming sick because of your home.
