Air pollution is a serious problem for those living in La Quinta, California, and across the state. However, the pollution within your home is often worse than the smog or smoke you’ll find outside. Protect your family by using an air purifier and take advantage of the benefits of clean, healthy air.
Fewer Allergic Symptoms
When you have poor indoor air quality in your home, you may experience unpleasant health symptoms, especially if you suffer from allergies. These symptoms may include congestion, sore throats, headaches, and breathing problems. For those with asthma or other existing breathing conditions, the symptoms could be much worse. Air pollution can also impact the cardiovascular system and brain. An air purifier can remove up to 99 percent of the contaminants in the air that cause these symptoms and other health concerns.
Reduce Concentration of Pollutants
The purpose of an air purifier is to remove pollutants from the air. It can remove all types of potential contaminants from the air, including smoke, biological growth spores, dust, pet hair, dander, pollen, and dust mites. Many people are allergic to these substances, so clearing them from the home will create a healthier atmosphere.
Improved HVAC Efficiency
An air purifier may also help improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. The heating and cooling system contains a filter that can remove some particles, but that filter typically isn’t rated for removal of such tiny items from the air. Over time, dust and debris can get trapped in the air ducts, reducing the efficiency and forcing the system to work harder to move heated or cooled air to the various rooms of your home. If your air purifier can trap these particles before they enter the HVAC system, you could end up with cleaner ducts and better efficiency, helping you save on your monthly bills.
