During allergy season, your family’s health could be at risk. Because of all the allergens in the air, your HVAC system may be working overtime to keep your indoor air clean. But did you know that there’s another way to improve the air you breathe at home? Here the AC repair experts from Mechanical Technologies share the five benefits of investing in an air purifier, especially during allergy season.
It keeps the indoor air clean and breathable. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), on average, indoor air is dirtier than outdoor air. A good air purifier should help clean the air your breathe inside your home by getting rid of the airborne particles that cause allergies.
It removes unpleasant odors. Some types of air purifiers are capable of removing unpleasant odors, especially those that come from the kitchen. They can also help neutralize the smell of smoke.
It traps dust. Air conditioning service contractors recommend cleaning or replacing HVAC air filters to make sure no dust or other airborne particles get inside the heating and cooling system. Despite this, you’ll still have to deal with dust. Fortunately, an air purifier can help trap dust before it has a chance to settle on surfaces, minimizing buildup and allergies.
It stops sickness, germs and bacteria from spreading. Airborne illnesses can make your entire household sick. With an air purifier, these airborne bacteria, germs and viruses get captured, making the air clean for everyone.
