The outdoor air can contain pollen, dust and other allergens. All these substances make their way through the doors, gaps and cracks to invade your home’s air. Here are five reasons to install an air purifier in your Rogers, AR, home to help combat these contaminants.
1. Improves Health
Many of the respiratory ailments people deal with relate directly to what’s in the air we breathe. This goes beyond communicable contagions, but it also includes triggers for allergies and asthma. A purifier renders these particles inert, preventing them from wreaking havoc on your lungs and sinuses.
2. Neutralizes Odors
Something that plagues every home is the odors that sometimes accompany daily living. These can be from pets, food, garbage and even the local environment. A purifier neutralizes these particles and then filters them out with activated charcoal.
3. Improves Sleep
A common response to many airborne contaminants is hay fever, which often disrupts sleep. This may include a runny nose, itchy and watery eyes, nasal congestion, coughing and even a sore throat. By removing these airborne particles, you eliminate the source of these problems before they even begin.
4. Eliminates Harmful Chemicals
The air around your home contains many harmful chemicals you may not even know existed. These include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phthalates, ammonia, chlorine and more, all originating from common household items like cleaners, furniture and linens. A purifier with an activated charcoal filter removes these from the air, reducing the concentration and duration of your exposure.
5. Reduces HVAC System Strain
The more contaminants floating around in your air, the more quickly your air filters develop clogs. These reduce airflow through your system, increasing the strain your system experiences trying to heat or cool your home. The additional strain leads to higher utility bills and more furnace and AC repairs.
