When most people think about their indoor air quality, they consider the temperature of their home, and maybe the humidity levels as well. One often neglected factor though is the cleanliness of your indoor air. Health experts tell us that the indoor air quality of our homes can actually be worse than that of the outdoors, particularly during this time of year.
Maintaining a comfortable climate is about so much more than what degree your thermostat is set at. To truly achieve a healthy indoor environment, you’ll want to keep cool and rid your indoor air of impurities and contaminants such as allergens and other irritants.
Consider Installing an Air Purifier
When you run your air conditioner, you typically close all the windows in your home. This makes good sense, as after all you need your air conditioner to run efficiently. However, this traps many of the airborne contaminants that may have entered your home, increasing the likelihood of allergy symptoms and other negative health effects.
Running your air conditioner continuously also tends to dry out your air, which weakens your body’s defense against illness. A humidifier helps, but to truly eliminate the contaminants this allows for, you’ll want to install an air purifier in your home.
What Type of Air Purifier Do You Need?
There are a variety of different types of air purifiers on the market today. For example, the most basic type of air purifier is a high efficiency air filter. The air filter that comes standard with your HVAC system is actually meant only to protect the inside components of your system, and not your indoor air.
Another type of effective air purifier is the ionization purifier, which uses ion clouds to draw contaminants out of your indoor air and collect it on a plate where it can be cleaned off later. A third type of quality air purifier is the UV air purifier, which uses safe ultraviolet light to eliminate biological pollutants at the source, such as mold. This prevents you and your family from falling ill due to poor indoor air quality.
