Whether you’re allergic to dust, pollen, or pet dander, air purifiers can make life easier for you by eliminating the particles that trigger your symptoms. Air purifiers utilize a filtration system to trap air contaminants that typically trigger people who suffer from allergies as well as those who have asthma or other respiratory conditions. Installing a whole home air filter will allow your household to breathe easier and experience more restful, rejuvenating sleep while at home.
Adding an air filter to your HVAC system will also reduce pathogens that cause illness. Even if you don’t have allergies or a respiratory ailment, you need to protect yourself against germs during cold and flu season. In addition to blocking dust, air filters trap and remove bacteria, fungus spores, and viruses that would otherwise circulate throughout the air indoors.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are potentially harmful gases emitted from many common household products. Although VOCs take the form of gases, they can be emitted from solids and liquids. Paints, building materials, glues, and cleaning products are common sources of VOCs. These unhealthy gases are also emitted from the burning of fuel sources like wood and gas.
