Just like you don’t want to breathe in polluted air outdoors, you shouldn’t want to breathe in polluted air within your home. Instead, you must keep the air within your home as free of pollutants as you can manage. Otherwise, constantly breathing in polluted air could lead to adverse health effects, especially for the elderly, children, and individuals with allergies or compromised immune systems.
In many cases, indoor contaminants aren’t avoidable. This includes mold spores, pet dander, bacteria, and even pollen. Although diligent cleaning is helpful to minimize contaminants, this isn’t the most effective way to protect air quality. Instead, you’ll need to focus on air filtration and purification.
Additionally, when you have optimal indoor air filtration, you’ll help your HVAC system run at its peak. A standard furnace filter doesn’t do much to prevent the accumulation of dust, dirt, or mold spores on the coil and blower. This buildup forces your HVAC system to work harder, leading to higher utility bills. With a good air filtration system, you’ll be able to reduce maintenance and lower operating costs.
With a high-quality air filtration system in place, you can also expect to:
Keep Your Decor and Furniture Protected
Air filtration effectively removes airborne dust—which, if left to accumulate, can lead to staining. Pillows and blinds will also require less frequent cleaning.
Extend the Shelf Life of Food Items
If you’re looking to extend the shelf life of perishable food products, then air filtration is the way to go. You’ll be able to effectively remove airborne germs and bacteria, allowing you to save money on groceries.
Reduce Maintenance Costs
In homes with standard air filters, you can expect to need your indoor coils cleaned once every five years or so. However, with high-quality air filtration, you’ll likely never need to pay to have your indoor coil cleaned. Again, this saves you money overall.
