You have an air filter in your air return in your home, but did you know that it’s main purpose is not to clean your air? Now some versions do a decent job of attracting dust and other particles and keeping them out of your air, but the main reason we have air filters is to keep your unit running efficiently by keeping your system clear of dust and debris. Here’s the deal… you have the power to control what you’re breathing in your home. So if you’re wanting clean, allergen-free air, an air filter simply isn’t going to cut it. You’ll need an air purifier. They will still accomplish what an air filter does while simultaneously cleaning your air. Are you ready to breathe easy? Let’s look at 3 reasons why you should consider an air purifier.
- Health benefits
The majority of people who choose an air purifying system for their home want to make sure they and their family are breathing in clean, purified air. These systems can rid your space of the following irritants and pollutants:
- pet dander
- carbon monoxide
Air purifiers are almost necessary for those struggling daily with allergies and/or breathing problems. But you don’t have to have issues breathing to want clean, purified air in your home.
- Extended lifespan of your unit
EnergyStar says, “A dirty filter slows down air flow and makes your system work harder to keep you comfortable.” A system that has to work harder for longer will break down more often and won’t last as long. An air purifier keeps your ducts, blowers, and unit free of dust and other particles that can reduce function and efficiency. This will wear your system down much faster, which means it will need to be replaced sooner…potentially costing you thousands (before you were expecting it).
- Money saved
Not only will extending the lifespan of your unit save you money, but an air purifying system can save you money monthly as well. A cleaner, more efficient system doesn’t have to work as hard, so you’ll save money on your monthly energy bills.
- Less dust accumulation in your home- imagine, not having to dust your whole house every couple of days!
- Odor control– it can help rid your house of stinky odors like the brussel sprouts you just cooked. It may even keep “soccer cleats in the laundry room” stink at bay!
- Neutralizes smoke and carbon monoxide
Which air purifier should I get?
We could share all the different options right now, but it wouldn’t give you a definitive answer. You wouldn’t be able to make a full decision solely from their descriptions. Choosing the right air purification system requires our team at Xcalibur Home Services. We will need to examine your unit, system, and current filtration to determine what kind we are able to install or if there is an option that won’t work with your setup. Pricing is another factor. Basically, what we’re trying to say is, we will help you decide on the right air purifier for your home!
We will also discuss your needs- whether you need everything filtered (including gases and bacteria) while undergoing medical treatment or simply want to avoid HVAC issues from dust buildup.
Are there other things that can make the air cleaner in my home?
Different air filters, such as a media filter can catch even more dust and debris, which can definitely help. Room purifiers are sold in several stores and online, however they will only help with that one room and may not be as efficient. Frequently changing your filters is another way to help, but it’s main role is to keep your system free from excessive dust buildup. A whole home purification system is the best way to breathe easy in your home.
