With cases rising and many counties in our state going back into lockdown, we probably don’t need to tell you that COVID-19 has brought its share of health concerns to the forefront of homeowners’ minds.
We cannot guarantee that any indoor air quality products will completely prevent the transmission of COVID germs, and encourage you to follow guidelines set forth by the CDC to make your home as healthy an environment as possible.
In addition, it is a good idea to look for ways to improve your indoor air quality overall. This will help boost your family’s immunity, and make you more comfortable spending time at home. After all, even pre-pandemic, most Americans spent 70% of their time in their homes. Surely, that number is higher now. If you’re one of those individuals who’s at home a lot more now, what can you do to make your living space healthier? Read on as we uncover at least one method.
Have a Whole-Home Air Purifier Installed
Have you heard of portable air purifiers? Chances are that you have… people have been buying them in droves for the last several months. However, portable systems lack the coverage and the reliability of a whole-home system. A whole-home air purifier can be the right choice for any home, but especially homes that suffer from:
- Mold or Mildew Growth
- Dirty Air Ducts
- Smell or Stale, Stuffy Air
- Dust and Other Particles in the Air
- Allergy Flare-Ups for Household Members
If you’re unsure of whether or not a whole-home air purifier is really the best choice for you, we encourage you to reach out to our professionals. We’ll help you make an educated decision!
Portable systems do have some impact on your indoor air quality, at least. But for the best results, you should definitely reach out to our professionals and see what is best for your specific needs. A whole-home system is both cost-efficient and convenient, as we’ve illustrated below.
We’re going to make the comparison to portable systems again, because it’s worth seeing the difference it can make. Portable air purifiers can typically only handle a small to mid-size room. This means that to ensure your entire home is reached, you’ll need multiple systems to put in various areas around your home, while a whole-home air purifier can be installed directly into the ductwork, where it will address the entire house.
This makes a whole-home system more cost-efficient than getting several portable systems (and it also saves space). Cleaner air also means that you won’t have to change out the HVAC air filters as much. Granted, these filters aren’t in place to protect your indoor air quality. But if there are fewer particles in your air to begin with, they won’t get clogged up as quickly.
As we stated above, whole-home air purifiers are integrated directly into your HVAC system and/or the ductwork. This means there’s no need to worry about extra space being used by multiple smaller units. You also don’t have to listen to multiple small air purifiers all running at the same time.
In addition, you’ll have even, uniform indoor air quality in your home 24/7. While a whole-home air purifier won’t mitigate serious problems, such as an infestation of mold, the use of this system can help prevent problems like this from happening to begin with.
