5 Benefits of Air Purifiers

benefits of air purifiers

If you have never experienced the difference an air purifier can make, it might sound silly or unnecessary to you at first. But if you suffer from asthma or allergies, an air purifier can transform your quality of living.

Air purifiers use fans and filters housed inside your HVAC system to remove pesky particles from the air you breathe. By eliminating dust, pollen, bacteria, and other airborne allergens and irritants, an air purifier will improve and maintain your indoor air quality (IAQ).

If you have never considered adding an air purifier to your HVAC system, you just might change your mind when you learn how beneficial they can be. Here are 5 benefits of air purifiers from our team of HVAC professionals at Blue Flame.

1. They ensure the air you breathe is clean.

The phrase “fresh air,” referring to the great outdoors, has some truth behind it. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air is much more polluted and unhealthy than outdoor air. Since research indicates that most people spend 90% of their time indoors, it stands to reason that germs and pollutants would build up in the enclosed air over time. An air purifier filters out unwanted particles and substances so that each breath you take is a clean one.

2. They trap airborne allergens from pets and pollen.

Pet dander and pollen are two of the biggest culprits for anyone suffering from regular allergy symptoms. Air purifiers filter out these allergens so that they won’t end up in your nose and throat. This can help you avoid post nasal drip and itchy eyes, and it can even help you get some better sleep at night.

3. They trap dust.

Have you ever noticed that mere days after you finish dusting your home, it looks dirty all over again? An air purifier can help combat dust problems. Dust particles are filtered out of the air as they pass through your HVAC system, which keeps them from settling as often on your furniture.

4. They remove airborne bacteria.

Even if you don’t suffer from asthma or allergies, you can still be susceptible to illness from airborne bacteria. All standard air purifiers remove 99% of bacteria from your air, and some purifiers even utilize UV rays to destroy nasty germs. An air purifier can help to keep your whole family healthier.

5. They remove unwanted odors.

As air purifiers intake loose particles from your air, they strategically remove any nasty smells that would otherwise linger. This can be especially essential if a family member or guest smokes, or if you like to sit beside a crackling fire in the winter but don’t like the smell of smoke on your furniture.
