Odors in Your Air
When you breathe in, you don’t just get oxygen. You get all kinds of particles that are floating around – including odors. You may enjoy breathing in good smells, but not bad smells. And bad smells can linger because the particles are small enough to get through your HVAC system and recirculate.
Contaminants in Your Air
While odors can be bothersome, they aren’t all dangerous. But other contaminants can be dangerous for your family’s health. Contaminants include bacteria, viruses, mildew, and mold. These particles are also so small that your HVAC system’s air filter cannot capture them. So they recirculate through your air and spread across your home.
Viruses and bacteria impact your health. But mold and mildew can do damage to your home in addition to your health. If mold spores circulate and land in an area where mold can grow, the spores will spread and cause damage to your home’s structure.
Improving Indoor Air Quality
If you’re concerned about contaminants and odors in your home’s air, we can help by conducting an air quality test. You can learn what is in your air and the levels of different contaminants. Some levels are considered safe, but others pose health risks. Once you learn about your air quality, you can choose an air purifier that fits your needs.
While you can purchase a plug-in air purifier, our team recommends a whole-house air purifier because they’re more efficient. Plug-in air purifiers can only clean air in one or two rooms. You may need to buy two or three, depending on the size of your home. Plus, the plug-in versions sit on the floor and take up space.
A whole house air purifier fits inside your HVAC system. It cleans the air before it ever circulates through your home. And in fact, a whole house air purifier can make your HVAC system run more efficiently.
