Indoor air pollutants from furry pets, mold, off-gassing furniture and other items in your home could have a negative impact on your indoor air quality. Springtime has also arrived in Selbyville, which means tree, grass and weed pollen can also get into your home through open windows and on your body. If you want to enjoy healthier and cleaner indoor air, consider these three reasons to install an air purifier in your home.
Strong odors can have a negative impact on your well-being. With an air purification system, your home’s air will be free of odors. If smells from household pets, cooking, perfumes or hobby activities aggravate your allergies or asthma, you may be able to breathe better after an air purification system is installed in your home.
Get Rid of Secondhand Smoke and Volatile Organic Compounds
According to Energy Star, air purifiers provide improved indoor air quality by removing secondhand smoke. If one person in your household smokes, the purifier removes those particulates from the air. This makes it easier to breathe. The purifiers also remove volatile organic compounds from adhesives, furniture, paint, plastics, adhesives and treated wood products in your home.
Filter Out the Particulates
Particulates in your home’s air also contribute to decreased air quality. Some common particulates include pet dander, dust, mold spores and pollen. A purifier captures these particles in its filter. When you breathe fewer particles, your allergy, asthma or other breathing problems may decrease. Some purification systems can also capture germs. By decreasing the amount of bacteria and viruses in your home’s air, you and your family may enjoy better health and fewer episodes of colds or influenza. If you’re doing home improvement projects, the filtration system can also remove the dust and debris from remodeling.
