Are you thinking of trying an air filtration and purification system? If you’re looking for a way to have cleaner air for your home, the experts at Black Diamond Electric, Plumbing, Heating, and Air can test your indoor air quality and recommend the best option for your needs. If you suffer from allergies or feel like your home is stuffy or overly dusty, an air purification system can bring some welcome relief. Today we’re sharing a few things that air purification can do for your indoor air quality.
1. Clears Allergens
If anyone in your home suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues, air purification can be a real lifesaver. Dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and other allergens can easily find their way into your home or be created within it. Without proper air filtration, you may unknowingly be breathing in air contaminants that are worsening your health. Often we think that the air filter in our HVAC system is sufficiently filtering the air, however, a whole-home air filtration system purifies the air at a much higher level utilizing High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration. You can expect a whole-home air filtration system to remove allergens, neutralize odors, remove or destroy infectious bacteria and even reduce ground-level ozone. If you suffer from allergies even while indoors, a whole-home air filtration system may be what you need to breathe easier.
2. Improve Air Quality for Energy Efficient Homes
Newer homes are designed to reduce utility bills by tightly sealing indoor air, making it more temperature controlled and energy efficient. However, this trapping of indoor air also means less ventilation. When air gets trapped in your home, your living space can start to feel stuffy and polluted. Everyday activities like cooking and cleaning can cause chemicals and contaminants to get caught in your air with no way out of a tightly sealed home. Install a whole-home air filtration and purification system to solve this problem!
3. Cleaner Air
As the name implies, the air filtration and purification system provide for much cleaner air. A study done by the Environmental Protection Agency shows that indoor air pollution levels average 2-5 times higher than outdoor pollution levels. Indoor pollutants could include pollen, dust, lint, mold spores, pet dander, smoke, cleaning chemicals, allergens, and more. A whole-home indoor air purification system like the PureAir Purification system from Lennox can remove airborne particles, germs and bacteria, and chemical odors and vapors. Black Diamond Electric, Plumbing, Heating and Air can recommend the best air purification solution for your air quality needs.
4. Decreases Chances of Mold Growth
Mold spores thrive in moist areas with inadequate ventilation. Air filtration systems can rid your air of mold spores and help prevent potential mold growth in your home. Mold growth can cause structural damage and other issues. Avoid this hassle with cleaner air.
