5 Benefits of a Whole House Air Cleaning System
While most homeowners
are aware of how their HVAC system affects their family's comfort and energy
bill, many have overlooked a critical component - the importance of the quality
of the air that flows inside the home.
Poor quality air
can lead to several issues, including a higher energy bill. A whole-house air
cleaning system is an ideal solution, helping to ensure the purity of the air
inside. An experienced, well-trained HVAC provider can explain if a whole-house air cleaning system is right for
your home and detail the different installation methods.
Here are five
benefits of a whole-house air cleaning system.
Protection Agency has noted that indoor air can be two to five times dirtier
than outdoor air.1 That can lead to an increased buildup of dust,
pollen, mold, dander and other allergens in your home. For people who suffer
from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments, that level of indoor
pollution can wreak havoc on their ability to breathe freely. In addition, mold
growth can lead to serious illness.
If you have
subpar indoor air quality, your home itself may suffer. Excessive dust, mildew
can lead to damage to your home and its furnishings. Trim separation, cracks,
discoloring and mold are all symptoms of poor air. Fixing those issues can
result in expensive repairs that would be unnecessary with a whole-house air
There are many
air purifiers and filters on the market to purchase, and while those may be
effective, their radius remains limited to the room in which you placed it.
Whole-house air cleaning systems, which are connected to your HVAC unit, can
cover the entire square footage of your home, increasing the ability to remove
existing pollutants and making the system more effective in blocking out
allergens from outside.
systems are increasingly being used by builders as a green option, but even if
you are retrofitting in your current home, there are ways to make getting
cleaner air more earth-friendly. Electrostatic recessed air cleaners, which are
hidden in a return box and installed in a ceiling or wall, trap particles
without creating harmful ozone deposits. HEPA air purifiers use a fan and
filter system to capture particles in an ozone-free manner.
If your HVAC
system isn't doing the job in keeping your indoor air clean, a whole-house air
system can work in concert with your current unit for a better, more efficient
overall performance that could save you money. Whole-house purifiers are low
maintenance, quiet, space-saving and work 24/7, which can help turn your home
from a host of hidden dangers into a place where you can breathe deeply.
You may not have
realized it, but clean indoor air is an important, and unnoticed, aspect of
keeping your family fit and your home running smoothly. Rely on certified,
caring professionals who can help you
explore the whole-house air cleaning system and start you on the process of
achieving cleaner, healthier and more comfortable indoor air.
