What Does an Air Purifier Do?
These systems help reduce pollution in your house. During daily activities such as cooking and cleaning, contaminants like dirt, dust, and even viruses and bacteria get stirred up and circulate through your home. An air purifier is designed to capture and kill up to 99 percent of these pollutants as they pass through your heating and cooling systems. This process promotes healthy air—and a healthy family.
Air Purifier Health Benefits
- Safe, Clean Air—According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside your home is two to five times more polluted than the air outside. By removing the vast majority of those pollutants, a purifier helps prevent you from breathing them in and getting sick.
- Fresher Air—Many airborne pollutants, like smoke or mold, give off unpleasant smells. As a purifier cleans the air, it also gets rid of those odors, helping your home smell as fresh as possible.
- Allergy Control—Airborne contaminants like dust, dirt, and pet hair are common allergy triggers for homeowners. Air purifiers remove those from the equation, leading to better health and comfort at home.
- Better HVAC Performance—The more pollutants that circulate through your ducts, the more they build up and block air flow. That blockage makes it hard for your furnace or air conditioner to perform as efficiently as possible—and can even cause your system to work harder than necessary to push air through. By eliminating or reducing that blockage, air purifiers make it easier for your heating or cooling system to work (and more likely to last you).
