For Healthier Air, Consider an Air Purifier for Your Home
Today, most of us spend more than 90% of our time indoors, where the air may be even more contaminated than the air outside. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside your home may be two to three times more polluted than outdoor air on average, thanks to dust, pollen, animal dander, mold, cigarette smoke, radon gas and more. Factor in that 1500 hazardous substances can be found in the typical North American home or that 50% of ALL illnesses are caused by or aggravated by indoor pollution, and you can see that purchasing an air purifier makes more sense than ever.
As an important component of your heating and cooling system, an air purifier can substantially improve the overall indoor air quality of your home by removing harmful airborne particles which easily pass through typical furnace filters. Unfortunately, changing conventional furnace filters more frequently may not be enough to protect your family because these pollutants are too small to be captured.
A state-of-the-art whole-home air purifier can solve the problem of polluted indoor air. Unlike other products that capture particles from the air, an advanced air purifier product is able to both capture and kill airborne allergens, bacteria, molds, viruses and other pollutants as small as 0.01 microns— that’s 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin. This type of purifier system combines superior filtration efficiency with pathogen-killing technology to deliver maximum air purification. Remember, the higher the MERV rating (the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value scale which ranges from 1 to 16) the more efficiently the purifier will remove particles from the air and surfaces in your home.
We can help you determine the most beneficial air purifier for your home and also show you how to maintain the purifier between system check-ups if necessary.
