Would you sniff dust? Probably not on purpose. But if you don’t have an air purifier in your Chalmette, LA, home, this is what you’re doing. Read on to learn why you should have a whole-home air purifier, how it’s different from a portable air purifier and how air purifiers work.
How Air Purifiers Work
While there are several types of whole-home air purifiers, they all work using the same basic idea. Using your home’s HVAC system, as air is pulled into the system, it’s passed through a filter. The filter can trap airborne particles (sometimes even bacteria, germs or viruses) and prevent them from recirculating back into your home.
Why Every Home Should Have a Whole-Home Air Purifier
You’d be surprised at how many contaminants can be in the air inside your home. Even if you clean, there are still germs, bacteria, pet hair, dead skin cells, dust mites and more that can float around. These particles can cause allergies or respiratory problems.
Benefits of Improved Air Quality
There are quite a few benefits to be gained from improved air quality. Some of them include:
- Your home will smell better.
- It can improve allergies.
- It can improve symptoms from respiratory illnesses.
- There will be less dust in your home.
Whole-home Air Purifier vs. Portable Air Purifier
The most obvious difference between these two purifiers is mobility. However, this becomes a problem if you want to purify more than one room. Whole-home purifiers are more powerful than portable purifiers so they’ll filter more in a shorter amount of time.
