Is an Air Purifier Enough for Indoor Air Quality?

HVAC systems are an excellent addition to our homes, providing indoor comfort year-round. However, they do introduce pollutants into our indoor air, such as dirt, dust, pollen, and other particles that can affect your allergies.

An air purifier works by allowing your air to pass through an ionization chamber where these particles are electrically charged. The particles are then removed from your indoor air by adhering to a collector plate or cell that is later cleaned off. The biggest benefit of using an air purifier is that it improves your indoor air quality, but is it enough?

How Are the Humidity Levels in Your Home?

Have you noticed excess moisture in your home? You may observe things like condensation on your windows, or even mold in tight places such as your attic or bathrooms. Not only is this a hassle to deal with, it can be harmful to your health. A dehumidifier is an indoor air quality product that will eliminate this issue.

On the other hand, you may notice your home is too dry. This can create health problems such as allergies, itchy eyes and/or skin, and more. Not to mention it can cause property damage within your home. If you want to eliminate your low humidity levels, then a whole house humidifier is your answer.

Have You Had Your Ducts Cleaned Lately?

Naturally, over time your ducts will accumulate dust and debris, just like any other part of your HVAC system. However, when your ducts become particularly filthy, there is only so much that an air filter or an air purifier can do. Investing in air duct cleaning service will ensure that your ducts aren’t contributing to poor indoor air quality. Duct cleaning can also improve airflow, making your system more efficient.
