Indoor Air Quality
The air quality in your home plays a large role in the health of you and your loved ones. Poor indoor air quality can significantly hurt your lung capacity in the long term. Asthma, emphysema, and cancer are just three of the many ways your air quality can affect your health. If you have heart disease or are pregnant, these effects are even more destructive.

Fixing Indoor Air Quality
Air quality is affected by a wide range of factors, from mold and toxic chemicals to dirty air vents and blocked ducts. We recommend several simple solutions to improve your air quality:
- Clean dirty AC filters
- Treat blocked or dirty air ducts
- Add good kitchen venting
- Clean your dirty upholstery and carpets
- Treat indoor humidity levels.
These simple measures can help you to prevent chronic respiratory conditions, but even the most thorough efforts can’t remove allergens entirely. To achieve cleaner air, you’ll need a whole-house air purifier. Filtration technology has evolved tremendously in recent years, so modern purifiers can deliver air that’s five times purer than its outdoor counterpart.
Do You Need a Purifier?
Air purifiers and dehumidifiers address toxins, humidity, and allergens in your household. A few classic red flags point to the need for filtration:
- If you live in an old home with toxic surfaces, you probably need a HEPA filter with activated carbon.
- If you share a home with a smoker or your sinus symptoms are ruining your sleep quality, an air purifier could significantly improve your respiratory condition.
- If you live in a neighborhood with carcinogenic radon levels, the right filtration technology can improve your family’s health.
- If you share a home with a beloved pet, an ionizer can address your allergen woes in no time by forcing dust and dander particles to settle.
- If you’re suffering from headaches, throat discomfort, rashes, or nausea, you might be exposed to volatile chemicals in your indoor environment. If you suspect exposure, it’s best to get rid of the source of your symptoms, but a powerful filter is an excellent second-line defense.
Air purifiers affect more than just your health. They can neutralize unpleasant scents, reduce dust, and keep your home clear of unattractive mildew. They process stale air, so they’ll keep your home smelling fresh every day. The right purifier prevents particles and dirt from circulating and settling on your furniture, so it’ll even keep your home clean, making quick work of pet odors. Remember: pure air is odorless air.
If you’re experiencing coughing, wheezing, eye itching, and a sore throat, it might be time to address your discomfort. UV light can destroy organic impurities like bacteria and mold, so it’s ideal for those suffering from the symptoms of black mold exposure. UV purifiers can neutralize odorous particles like cigarette smoke and urine by removing the cause.
UV-C light purifiers are a little different from the norm. They rely on short-wave light to render pathogens inactive. There are few better options for eliminating germ exposure. Ultraviolet light keeps viruses and bacteria from spreading, so those winter colds and sniffles should decline.
