When it comes to indoor air quality, homeowners in Florida often have to worry about things like humidity levels. No one wants to feel like they are living in a swamp (even if some of us actually do live in one). Humidity isn’t the only thing to worry about, however. Read on to discover some of the things that can negatively affect your indoor air quality, and how an air purifier can help restore it.
Every time you inhale, you’re exposing yourself to millions upon millions of microscopic airborne contaminants. Some of these contaminants include dust, dirt, pollen, viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. Most airborne contaminants only cause coughing and sneezing fits, maybe an allergy attack if you have a susceptibility to them. Some, however, can make you genuinely sick. The reason you don’t often notice this is because the contaminants are dispersed enough for your body to fight them off. When you close all of your windows and turn on a heater or air conditioner, however, you allow these contaminants to start to build up. Long term exposure to these higher doses of contaminants makes it much easier for you to experience negative effects.
The best way to address the airborne contaminant problem is to install a whole-house air purifier in your home. Each purifier operates a bit differently, but they all serve the same purpose: ridding your home of as many airborne contaminants as possible. Consult with an HVAC professional to find out which air purifier is the best for your situation. You will be amazed at the difference in your air quality.
