If you’re worried about your Oklahoma City home’s indoor air quality, installing an air purifier can address health, energy, and maintenance concerns. Find out how a whole-house air purifier can benefit your home and family.
1. Cleans More Than Just One Room
Portable air purifiers typically have a limited scope and clean the air in just one room at a time. Whole-house air purifiers do so much more. These appliances work in conjunction with an HVAC system to ensure that all of the air cycling through your home is pure, clean, and safe to breathe. Some models can even filter 100 times the air that portable units can.
2. Traps More Pollutants
Many homeowners trust air purifiers to trap any and all dangerous airborne particles, but in reality most devices are only capable of capturing some pollutants. Most portable air purifiers, for instance, aren’t capable of removing common allergens like dust mites, pollen, and pest waste from the air. Whole-house air purifiers, however, can generally remove up to 95 percent of airborne particles ranging from .3 to 1.0 microns.
3. Keeps the HVAC System Running Smoothly
Since whole-house air purifiers work hand-in hand with the HVAC system, they actually clean the air before it’s processed, conditioned, and distributed by your air conditioner or furnace. With this step out of the way, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to clean the air on its own. That means your HVAC system is likely to keep running smoothly and efficiently for longer, with fewer breakdowns and maintenance required.
4. Prevents Colds and Flu
Whole-house air purifiers go to impressive lengths to kill and neutralize airborne pollutants and bacteria. Some of the most advanced whole-house air purifiers neutralize up to 99 percent of the germs that they capture. That means cold and flu viruses won’t survive in your home, and neither will a long list of dangerous pathogens like the viruses that cause measles, SARS, and avian flu.
