Surprising Health Benefits of Home Air Cleaners
Today, there’s greater focus on healthy living than ever before. However, many people overlook the impact of poor indoor air quality on their homes. Using home air cleaners can improve your family’s overall health and quality of life.
Indoor Air Quality
Research has shown that indoor air quality can be significantly worse than outdoor air. Pollutants, such as pollen, dust, pet dander and chemicals can circulate throughout your home via your HVAC system. Without filtration, polluted air can cause a number of adverse health effects, particularly in people with allergies or asthma.
Using Home Air Cleaners
There are a number of different air cleaners on the market that address specific concerns. To select the right air cleaner for your family, you should first understand your needs. Then, consider if there are specific particulates that need to be eliminated. Additionally, you should think about if you need an air cleaner for your entire home or if a room air cleaner will better suit your needs. An experienced HVAC technician can help homeowners select the right air cleaning solution for their needs.
When quality home air cleaners are used, you may experience the following indoor air quality benefits:
- Reduction in symptoms and complications of asthma and allergies
- Fewer headaches
- Reduction in irritation or dryness of the eyes, nasal passages and skin
- Decreased coughing and sneezing
