The air quality in your home plays a primary role in your health. Making sure that it’s as clean as possible is important for all homes, but it’s even more critical for households with someone who has allergies or asthma. One option to improve air quality is to have an air purifier installed. Our professionals with Suburban Services Group in Burnt Hills will recommend an air purifier and get it installed for you.
Why Do Air Purifiers Help Allergies and Asthma?
Many allergens and asthma triggers are airborne. While the air filter in an air conditioner, furnace, or HVAC can remove some of these, there are bound to be some that slip through. A home air purifier can remove these.
One of the most important qualities to look for in an air purifier is the type of filtration it uses. For people who have asthma or allergies, a HEPA filter is the best option. These filters remove at least 99.97% of particles that have a diameter of at least 0.3 micrometers.
Some air purifiers are certified by the AAFA, which means they remove nearly 98% of known airborne allergens. Try to find an air purifier that exchanges air at a rate of two to three times per hour for the best effect.
As you consider air purifiers, remember that these won’t remove things like cigarette smoke and nicotine from the air. The presence of these particles in a home can still affect people who have asthma or allergies.
Installing the Proper Air Purifier for Your Home
The key to reaping the benefits of an air purifier in your home is to have one that can handle the square footage of your house. A unit that’s too small won’t be able to keep up, and one that’s too large might not work efficiently. Our team can help you find the unit that’s best suited for your home’s unique needs.
