Got allergies? Are your allergies worse indoors?

Pet dander, mold spores, pollen, high humidity, dust mites, these are allergy triggers that can affect the quality of the air you breath inside your home. It’s also a great reason to regularly change the filters in your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system and to consider turning your HVAC system into a whole home filtration system. The American Lung Association states that the air in your home can be dirty and hazardous to your health. In fact, indoor air can be even more polluted than the air outdoors.

If someone in your home suffers from allergies and asthma, consider talking with an HVAC professional who has an indoor air specialist on staff. An indoor air quality specialist can help you be on your way to getting cleaner and healthier air inside your home. With today’s technologies in air purification systems your HVAC system can become the best solution for cleaner air vs. the portable air cleaners available on the market.

Portable air cleaner, whole home air cleaner and whole home air purification systems…here are a few pros and cons to consider.

  • The portable air cleaner is definitely the less expensive option and you will not need a professional installation like a whole home air cleaner requires. The portable air cleaner can be moved from room to room.
  • The whole home air cleaner/air purity system will do just that…clean the air in your entire home and not just a single room. It’s out of sight, no noise, and the maintenance is minimal. Although the cost for a whole home air cleaning/purity system is more than a portable air cleaner, it will effectively purify the air by removing particles and contaminates that are harmful to your family and HVAC equipment. A whole home air purifier by Aprilaire comes with a 10 year guarantee to keep your new indoor air conditioning coil from needing professional cleaning.
  • The Air Scrubber Plus is the only high-quality indoor air purification system proven to improve air quality by using a combination of unique technologies. With its certified space technologies, it is proven to clean, deodorize, and purify the air. This technology will protect your home from dust, germs, odors, pet dander and viruses.

Hopefully this article will help you better understand how your HVAC contractor can help you make a healthier home. Whole home air cleaners/purification systems are installed into your HVAC system’s return ductwork and they aid in cleaning the air throughout your entire home.
