While we think of houses as a place where we’re protected from harmful germs and contaminants, that’s not always the case. Because our homes are closed up most of the time, they can become a breeding ground for harmful pollutants and bacteria. Fortunately, air purification systems can help. In this blog, the Bryant® experts at Martens Plumbing & Heating are sharing some of the unexpected ways an air purifier benefits your family’s health. Discover more below, then call us when you’re ready for cleaner air.
Advantages of Having an Air Purifier
Reduces Circulation of Viruses and Bacteria
Exposure to viruses and bacteria is unavoidable. But when your windows are all sealed up, there’s often no way to clear them out of your home. They can circulate through your air as your furnaces and ACs run and easily make you sick.
But with an air purifier, you can stop those contaminants in their tracks. The purifier captures them as they pass through your ductwork and eliminates them outright, helping reduce illnesses and keep you breathing safe, clean air. This is especially important if there are children or elderly family members living in the home.
Alleviates Asthma and Allergy Symptoms
People who suffer from allergies are susceptible to common home air pollutants like dander, dust mites, and pollen. If the levels of these substances get out of control, they can affect air quality and cause asthma symptoms or allergy attacks.
While cleaning and vacuuming can help, this alone may not fully address the problem. However, an air purifier can. They trap these allergy triggers before they affect family members with sensitivities, making your home air more comfortable and healthy for all.
Eliminates Harmful Chemicals
One of the biggest air purifier benefits is combating chemicals. Depending on where you live, you might be exposed to radon and asbestos in your home. These are both harmful substances that can pollute your indoor air. Radon, which occurs naturally from home-building materials, can cause damage to the lungs. Asbestos, which is typically found in older homes, can disintegrate into tiny particles that are also harmful to breathe in.
Purifiers can capture these substances, ensuring they don’t cause health concerns for you now or in the future.
