Air quality is perhaps the most important element in our home. Our HVAC systems fall under serious strain, wear and tear, and our bodies become susceptible to increased health threats without proper indoor air quality.
Even though it’s difficult to see poor air quality with our eyes, that doesn’t make it any less of a threat. Learn more about improving your indoor air quality to enjoy a happy, healthy home below.
Why Does Clean Air Matter?
Every day, our air is assaulted with pollutants. Of course, we all know there is no shortage of outdoor pollutants. Contaminants like wildfire smoke, microplastics, emissions, and more constantly assault our home’s air.
But pollutants can stem from indoor contaminants, too. Burnt cooking oil, aerosol, cleaning products, pets, dust, mold spores, and more can contribute to poor air quaity.
Over time, breathing in all of that air can wear down our respiratory systems. When the indoor air quality is poor, it can heighten allergies, irritate our airways, and cause severe ailments like headaches, dizziness, nausea, and more.
But there’s a way to clean our indoor air: whole-home air purifiers.
How to Tell When Your Air Quality Is Poor
While you may be able to see an uptick of dust or mold spores, most pollutants are microscopic and are impossible to see with the naked eye.
As a result, you need to be mindful of the signs of poor indoor air quality.
If your air quality has become poor, you’ll notice clues like:
- Mold spores growing by your HVAC system
- Frequent coughing
- Skin irritation
- Increased allergies
- Headaches or migraines
- Dust buildup
- Poor heating and cooling
Luckily, there are other ways to tell when your indoor air quality has plummeted. Contact DTC Air Conditioning and Heating to track and measure your air quality for the most definitive results.
Improve Your Air with Whole-Home Purifiers
The best way to improve your home’s air quality is to install a whole-home purifier.
Some homeowners think they can improve their air quality with small, inexpensive purifiers. However, these devices do little to improve your air quality when you have a large home and severe pollutants.
Instead, a whole-home purifier is a much more effective, reliable option to improve your air quality, safety, and comfort. When a whole-home purification system is installed into your HVAC unit, it can effectively collect and eliminate pollutants from circulating in your home’s air system.
There are many types of whole-home purifiers available. However, one of the best is undoubtedly the Dustfree MicroPure Air Purifier. This sophisticated technology utilizes ionic oxidation to change molecules and capture pollutants. Afterward, powerful ultraviolet lights destroy contaminants and sanitize the air.
Additionally, the Dustfree MicroPure Air Purifier installation is incredibly simple and convenient. Even though whole-home purifiers are installed into your current HVAC system, these systems only take one business day to install.
Be Safe, Clean, and Happy in Your Home
No one wants to live in a dusty, polluted home. While we can’t do much to prevent pollutants from entering our homes, we can control how well we cleanse and remove pollutants from the air.
With a robust air purifier, homeowners can feel confident knowing their air quality is crisp, clean, and completely safe to breathe.
