There is surprisingly more air pollution in your home than outside of it. Most people spend 90% of their time indoors, so indoor air pollution is a big concern. Here’s how Buda, TX, homeowners can clean the air using an air purifier in their homes.
What is an Air Purifier?
An air purifier uses fans to pull air in and then cleans it by sending it through a series of filters. The filters catch small particles that your home’s HVAC system can’t, such as pollen, bacteria, smoke, and dust. The cleaner air circulates back into your home and the circular process continues.
Who Most Benefits from an Air Purifier?
Everyone can benefit from cleaner air, but asthma and allergy sufferers benefit the most. They can breathe easier as allergens like pollen and pet dander are removed from your home’s indoor air. An air purifier installed in your home’s central heating and cooling system cleans the air throughout your home.
Which Filter Works Best for Those With Allergies or Asthma?
A HEPA/UV-C air purifier is best, especially if you live in a high allergen region. While they are more expensive than traditional air purifiers, they can trap up to 99.97% of airborne allergens.
What Else Can Air Purifiers Catch?
Air purifiers can capture radon gas. This is a natural gas that causes lung cancer. Between 15,000 and 22,000 people throughout the country die from lung cancer every year due to radon gas in their homes.
