The EPA notes that we typically spend up to 90% of our time indoors, where the air quality can be two to five times worse than that of the outdoor environment. It only makes sense to keep your indoor air as healthy as possible. Here are five benefits of installing an air purifier in your Quincy, IL, home.
An air purifier works hard to remove contaminants from your indoor air. It also helps reduce wear and tear on your HVAC system, and with regular maintenance it will typically need fewer repairs.
Relieves Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
If you suffer from allergies or asthma, you know how important it is to rid your living space of pet dander, pollen and other triggers. Along with regular maintenance, an air purifier helps reduce dust and dirt in your home.
While you’re likely used to the various odors around your home, some of them actually affect your health without you even realizing it. While some unpleasant odors just curl your nose, others can cause headaches and nausea or even affect your cognitive functions.
Rids Home of VOCs
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are gases like radon and liquids like ethanol and acetone, which products and natural processes can release. The VOCs in common household substances like disinfectants, chemical cleaners, paint and pest control sprays can cause health issues including headaches, nausea and memory impairment. An air purifier breaks down VOC molecules so that they can no longer harm you or those you live with.
Less Pet Dander and Fur
One of the downsides to pet ownership is the constant shedding of furred pets and wondering how it accumulates so quickly. An air purifier removes dander and fur from your home’s air so you don’t have to sweep up after your pet as often.
