5 Benefits of Updating Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality System

April 4, 2022

Indoor allergy sufferers usually don’t need to be reminded that spring is near. You’ve likely already assembled allergy medicines, dust-busting cleaning supplies, and new HVAC filters.

However, there are other reliable ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality system so that you can breathe easier this spring — not just by changing out your HVAC filter.

Signs you have poor indoor air quality include:Man sneezing indoors

  • Coughing or difficulty breathing
  • Eye, nose, and throat irritation
  • Dry skin
  • Poor sleep
  • Dust buildup
  • Lingering odors

As a homeowner, the benefits go beyond reducing the number of irritants circulating throughout your home. Good indoor air quality can also help:

Extend Your HVAC System’s Life Span

Contaminants strain your heating and cooling system because they clog your filter with particles.

Consistently clogging your filters with particles makes your HVAC system work less effectively, reducing its ability to distribute conditioned air. Your HVAC system can function optimally and last longer with a better indoor air quality system.  

Reduce Odors

UV air purifiers neutralize odor-causing molecules into water vapor. By adding and maintaining a UV air purifier to your HVAC system, you can reduce unwanted odors in your home.

Protect Your Family From the Spread of Airborne Viruses

Common colds are spread through water droplets breathed in by someone who’s not infected.

UV air purifiers neutralize those droplets, and electrostatic air filters trap bacteria, allergens, dander, and more.

Ease Allergy Symptoms

Common allergy symptoms include itchy eyes and skin, wheezing, sneezing, and coughing.

Dehumidifiers, whole-house HEPA filtration, and electrostatic air filters reduce the mold, dust, pollen, and dander that cause these symptoms.

Circulate Fewer Dust Particles in Your Cooling System

Even though air constantly moves through your HVAC system, dust particles can still settle in your ductwork.

Whole-home HEPA filtration systems filter particles effectively while allowing warm and cool air to pass freely through your HVAC system.
