Did you know that indoor air pollution is a real threat to your health? It’s true – indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has even named indoor air pollution as one of the top five concerns to public health. It’s the cause of asthma and allergies in countless sufferers. Fortunately, with the aid of air cleaners, you don’t have to suffer any longer.
Air cleaners don’t treat your symptoms; they attack the problem at the source by removing pollutants from the air. Many types are available today, from small portable units for single-room use to whole-house models that clean the air circulating around your entire home.
If you’re wondering whether you need an air cleaner, consider that you inhale more than 3,500 gallons of air every day. This air is likely saturated with microscopic contaminants you don’t even know are there.
The benefits of air cleaners include:
- Health: Your home may be riddled with bacteria, viruses, mold spores, dust, pet dander and other microscopic airborne pollutants. If your allergies are triggered or exacerbated by these contaminants, you stand to benefit immediately by adding air cleaners to your Dayton or Springfield area home.
- Comfort: Particularly with a whole-house air filter, you’ll find that dust collects less quickly on horizontal surfaces. This keeps your home looking cleaner between dusting and vacuuming sessions.
- Protection: Dust and dirt buildup in your heating and cooling system can lead to expensive repairs and early equipment failure. A standard HVAC filter simply doesn’t provide enough protection. Whole-house air cleaners are many times more effective than standard filters, which helps ensure your investment lasts for many years to come.
- Energy savings: In addition to causing premature failure and other problems, built-up dust and dirt also force your heating and cooling equipment to work harder than necessary to keep you comfortable. By filtering out airborne particles with whole-house air cleaners, efficiency remains at its peak.
