Air purifiers help to remove air pollutants as outdoor air enters your home. These pollutants may include odors, smoke, dust, dirt, or pet dander. Here are four benefits of an air purifier and how it can help to clean the air within your home.
1. Increase the Quality of Your Indoor Air
Air pollutants reduce the quality of your indoor air and cause discomfort in your home. Air purifiers clean your indoor air and eliminate pollutants. This increases the comfort level of your home.
2. Increase the Efficiency of Your HVAC System
Air pollutants make your HVAC system work harder to cool your home, and this reduces its efficiency. Air cleaners eliminate air pollutants and increase the efficiency of the system. This helps to reduce your monthly energy bills and increase the lifespan of your HVAC system.
3. Improve Your Health
Air purifiers remove triggers for asthma attacks. Triggers include dirt, dust, dry skin cells, carbon monoxide, smoke, perfumes, paint products, and air-freshening sprays. Eliminating these triggers improves your general health.
Air purifiers also help to eliminate the presence of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Signs of VOC irritation include watery eyes, nausea, and difficulty breathing. According to the federal government’s Environmental Working Group, VOC can increase the risk of leukemia, lymphoma and other cancers.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that causes serious health problems. The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions notes that breathing a lot of this gas can lead to headaches, dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, sweating, and confusion. Air purifiers help to eliminate this gas and clean your indoor air.
4. Remove Odors
Bad odors can originate from the kitchen, toilet, or even from outdoor sources. They can cause discomfort in your home. Air cleaners help to eliminate these odors and leave your indoor air fresh.
