Are Air Purifiers Worth It?

Air purifiers are a great way to keep your home or office clean and healthy. If you have been on the fence about buying a new air purifier for your home, we will break down the benefits of having one installed!

Improving air quality

Air purifiers are a great way to improve the quality of the air that you breathe. They can be used in various situations, including homes, schools, offices, etc.

In order to work correctly, they must be able to remove allergens from the air and reduce dust levels. How is this achieved? Usually through high-rated air filters, sometimes HEPA filters, that can remove allergens and pollutants at microscopic levels.

Mold spores are another common allergen that an air purifier can remove. These spores grow on damp surfaces or in damp environments like basements or bathrooms where there is poor ventilation and moisture collects on walls or ceilings. Typically a routine service of your HVAC can help eliminate humidity problems that foster mold growth. Still, an air purifier can help remove remaining spores to prevent widespread growth across your air ducts.

Removing bacteria

Air purifiers are a great way to remove bacteria from the air. Bacteria can cause health problems, and by removing them from your home, you protect yourself and your family from these adverse effects. Air purifiers work by using a filter to trap bacteria in the air before it enters your lungs. This is important because when you breathe in air that contains bacteria, it can cause issues like allergies or colds.

Air purifiers also remove odors and other contaminants in addition to bacteria. If you have pets or smoke cigarettes at home, it's easy for these smells to cling onto surfaces like furniture or walls until they're cleaned off thoroughly with chemicals or soap/water solutions (both of which aren't always ideal). By using an air purifier on a regular basis—especially after cleaning up any messes that might be lingering around—you'll keep those odors from building up over time, so there's nothing left but freshness!

If you are in a home with someone who loves to go to the gym, an air purifier will be a lifesaver for getting rid of any lingering odors from the dirty hamper. Remember to regularly replace or clean the filters with any system that uses air filters to keep your home feeling fresh.

Quiet and Energy Efficient

Air purifiers are quiet and energy efficient, making them great for any room in your home. You can use an air purifier in any season, climate, or room of the house. The question for many homeowners when looking into a new additional component for their air system is the cost. We hear you and understand that sometimes shelling extra for non-essential features is not worth the investment.

Can you live without an air filter? Of course, we don’t want to pressure you into buying an air filter system you can live without if the money is tight. However, if you can afford an air purifier, all signs point to getting one for your home.
