Is it worth it to install an air filtration system in your Austin home? The brief answer is yes because when it comes to survival, clean air is just as important as the water you drink and the food you eat. Unfortunately, many people live their life without the appropriate type of air filtration system in their home, which may have an effect on your physical well-being. Clean air is especially beneficial for those who suffer from allergies and/or other respiratory problems. If you aren’t sure if an air filtration system is beneficial for your home, here are a few reasons to consider it.
Allergies and Asthma
Installing an air filtration system in your home can help reduce the amount of unwanted airborne particles inside of your home. Reducing the presence of harmful particles in your home will help you breathe easier, reduce irritation and eliminate the symptoms of allergies and asthma, such as a runny nose, swelling around the eyes and sneezing. An air filtration system can help family members with asthma and allergies use their inhalers less and instead allow them to breathe clean, fresh air.
Bacteria and Germs
There are thousands of types of microscopic pollutants that can find their way into and reproduce in your home and eventually infiltrate your body, compromising your immune system. One of the most common as well as harmful problems with “unclean” air is mold spores, which thrive in damp, humid areas, such as the bathroom. Even if you can’t see mold, it can be living in your home, quietly disturbing your immune system as well as cause lung infections and breathing problems. In addition to mold spores, germs such as the flu are often carried into a home from the outside. An air filtration system basically works to scrub your home free of bacteria and germs that may make you sick.
Cleaner HVAC System
All of the particles that can get into your home air can also get into and diminish the ability of your HVAC system. The filter on your HVAC system is designed to collect dust, dander, and debris and prevent it from circulating in your home. However, in many situations, an air filter simply isn’t enough to keep the air as clean as it should be and over time, you will end up with clogged ducts and debris in the compressor, which causes your HVAC system to work harder than it should. Not only will this lead to higher energy costs, but it may also shorten the lifespan of the HVAC system.
Quality is Worth it
A quality air filtration system can help make life more enjoyable for those who suffer from allergies and other respiratory problems and it will do a lot of the work when it comes to removing moisture from the air, creating a cooler, cleaning feeling atmosphere inside your home.
