Considering how much time your family spends in your Canyon, Texas, home, you want to make sure the air inside is clean. Although air purifiers are big investments, they are usually worth it if you’re at risk for poor indoor air quality.
Whole-Home Air Purifiers
Whole home purifiers are part of your HVAC system. They use a filter system to trap dust, debris, dirt, and other contaminants before they enter your living spaces. These filters also help to remove contaminants like dirt and pet dander from cycling through your home. Even when homes are properly ventilated, they are sealed so the home is energy-efficient. Portable filters are available when your home doesn’t have a central heating or cooling system.
Understanding Indoor Air Quality
Homes are sealed up tighter than ever to prevent wasting energy. People seal all cracks and add insulation to their walls and attics to avoid air from getting out or in. While that is good for your energy bills, it’s not always ideal for your air quality. Without an air purifying system, you’re prone to poor indoor air quality. Poor IAQ can create health concerns like watery eyes, allergy-like symptoms like coughing and sneezing, and headaches. Your family is especially susceptible to these issues during the winter and summer when you spend more of your time indoors.
Your Family and Your Needs
Whether you need a whole-home air purifier really depends on your family and your needs. It is a significant investment, but worth it if it helps keep your family healthy. Have your home tested to see if you suffer from poor IAQ. If you have kids or pets, it’s especially hard to vacuum and dust often enough to keep pollutants at bay. If you or your family suffer from allergies or asthma, it’s typically worth the investment to prevent exacerbating those symptoms.
