Allergy Sufferers: Invest in an Air Purifying System for Relief

If you or a member of your family suffers from allergies or asthma, it may be time to consider investing in an air purification system. This addition to your home’s heating and cooling system may offer much needed relief from your allergy symptoms.

The newer models that are available require very little maintenance on the part of the homeowner. They will actually help prolong the life of your heating and cooling system by protecting the system from accumulated deposits of dust and other particles.

How Purifying the Air in Your Home Helps

An air purifier reduces the amount of irritants that are present in the air in your home. Depending upon the air purification system you choose, the unit will purify the air either by trapping airborne particles in a HEPA filter or by sterilizing the air with ultraviolet lights.

The air that passes through the air purifier is not just filtered; it is re-purified every time it passes through. The air in your home is re-purified at a rate of almost eight times an hour.

What Irritants are Removed from the Air?

An air purification system will remove the following irritants from the air in your home:

  • Pollen
  • Dust and dust mite feces
  • Pet hair and dander
  • Smoke particles
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Mold spores
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses

If these irritants are not removed from the air in your home, they will continue to recirculate throughout your home. By removing these irritants from the air, you may reduce your or your family’s allergies and asthma symptoms.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

You may not be aware that your home has VOCs in it. These compounds are found in paints and adhesives that may have been used in the installation of carpeting or flooring in your home. Over time, fumes from these compounds are released into the air. An air purifier will remove these compounds from the air and reduce the health risks to your family.

Mold spores that may be in your home can also be hazardous to your family’s health. You may have them in your home and not realize it. If you find that your family seems to be constantly coming down with colds or viruses, it may be because these germs are being recirculated throughout your home by your heating and cooling system. Systems will ultraviolet lights will kill these living microorganisms, which are then trapped in the filter of the system.
