3 Signs that You Need an Air Purifier
November 21, 2014
Indoor air quality is a paramount consideration for every home, no matter what its layout, size or location. It's not without good reason that the Environmental Protection Agency lists poor indoor air quality as one of the major problems affecting our homes in this country. But opening up the windows and doors is hardly a satisfactory option for most homeowners, as it drastically raises the cost of heating and cooling the home to make our domestic lives comfortable and convenient. Fortunately, a whole house air purifier may be just what you need if your home suffers from an influx of airborne contaminants and pollutants that continue to circulate (and recirculate) throughout your ductwork and living space.
But how do you know that you would benefit from an air purifier? It can be difficult to assess without the technical expertise and experience of a professional. Fortunately, there are some signs to look out for.
- Musty or foul odors. As well all know, foul odors can come from a variety of locations within the home, but if you notice that your indoor air is particularly musty, particularly when your heating and cooling system clicks on, then you may have an issue with your indoor air quality. You could have mold and mildew spores circulating throughout your living space as well as bacteria.
- Increased allergies. If you suffer from allergies, then you probably think of your home as an escape from pollen and other allergens prevalent during the warmer months of the year. But dust and dander can also prove troublesome, and these can continue to accumulate within your household, unless you remove them by means of an air purifier.
- Visible dust and other debris. Does a plume of dust emerge from your ducts when your HVAC system starts up? If so, then you may need to consider installing a whole house air purifier to reduce the amount of dust that can build up inside the home. Portable units simply do not compare.
