Air Purifiers, Your Home and Your Health

Air Purifiers, Your Home and Your Health
  • Opening Intro -

    There are a number of benefits that an air purifier can have on your home and just as many, if not more, that it can have on your health.


As with most home improvements, the financial burden of installing an air purifying system can be costly but upkeep and maintenance is low in cost and personal energy. There are four ways that installing an air purifier in your home will benefit your health in the long run.

1: Allergies and Asthma

The main reason that many install an air purifying system in their home is due to the fact that they are a victim to airborne allergies or asthma attacks. The filters free your home of the presence of pollen, dander and dust that causes issues to arise for those that are affected by asthma or allergies. A high quality HEPA filter can remove 99.97% of airborne particles, relieving those in in your home of symptoms and helping them to all around breathe better.

Even the best of housekeepers can fall victim to bacteria, mold and fungus taking up residence in their home. An air purification system can put your mind at ease if you are unable to stay on top of the cleaning chores as meticulously as you would like to.

2: Recirculation

Dependent on your filtration system, the air in your home may be recirculated throughout the home to help create a stable temperature. This is cost and energy efficient, especially in the summer and winter months when attempting to cool or heat your home. If someone in your home is gets sick, you run a higher risk of contracting an airborne virus.

This is very similar to recirculated air on a plane and why we so often get sick after traveling. Installing an air purifying system will protect you, your loved ones and guests from any illnesses that you may bring home with you by filtering it out for you.

3: Location

As urban areas continue to expand and sprawl, we find ourselves buying homes closer to factories and warehouses that used to be separated from us by large distances. Even the most tightly sealed house can allow outside air that carries production chemicals and odors into your home. Air purifiers will eliminate the smells from the local factory and filter out potentially harmful chemicals that could wind up causing respiratory issues later on in life.

Even if you live outside of the city limits, you still run the risk of potential infiltration of smoke and other harmful particles caused by natural events, such as volcanoes or forest fires. If you live in an area that is prone to smoke saturated air, an air purifier will be a great addition to your home.

4: Previous Owners

If you are not the first person or family to live in a home, you may want to protect yourself from residual damage from the previous owners. Although you may think you know the finer details of your house, previous tenants are not legally binded to disclose every minor incident that happens in a home. If there was minor flooding that may have left a trail of mold, if they used to be smokers or have a large pet family, you may want to consider getting an air purifier to save you from what the previous residents may have unintentionally left behind.


Installing an air purifier in your home is something that can add value to your home and to your health. As you get older, you are more prone to illness and disease. Consider installing an air purifier today to protect you throughout the years.
