Oftentimes when we get calls for HVAC repairs, the homeowners’ complaint isn’t specific, only that their indoor air quality seems “off.” It may be that the air feels too dry or every time they run their air conditioner, their allergies kick up. While your air conditioner might be partly to blame, what you really want to look at is what type of indoor air quality system you may want to have installed to truly address the problem.
One of these systems is the whole-house air purifier. We like these indoor air quality systems because they’re so effective—tackling the indoor air quality needs in your entire home. If you’re interested in this kind of installation, keep reading! And for more information, please reach out to our team.
When Might You Need a Whole House Air Purifier?
There are a number of different types of indoor air quality systems on the market, and even different kinds of air purifiers. The options can be a little overwhelming, but we are here to help. It may be time for you to consider the installation of a whole-house air purifier if:
Your Household Has Frequent Allergy Flare-Ups
This is the time for the spring allergy season. But do your allergies seem to be year-round when you’re at home? This can be quite a frustrating problem, especially if you feel that you keep up on dusting and cleaning your home.
You’re not to blame! What may instead be to blame are pollutants and allergens that get trapped inside your home because they have nowhere to go, especially when you have everything closed up in order to run your air conditioner. An air purifier gives these particles a place to go, eliminating them from your indoor air.
Your Home Doesn’t Smell That Great
Have you noticed that there’s a musty odor in your home? Again, this isn’t a sign that you’re not good at cleaning. What may be happening here is that particles have started clinging to the lining of your ductwork. This can include mold and mildew spores, which thrive in the cool, damp ductwork attached to your HVAC systems.
Other factors can lead to bad odors too—such as there being nowhere for cooking fumes to go due to poor ventilation and poor indoor air quality.
You’ve Actually Discovered Mold Growth
Have you noticed mold growing anywhere on or around your property? This is caused by excess moisture. A dehumidifier is the best way to tackle and prevent this particular problem, but mold growth in your home also means there are other bacteria and particles in the home, which you can manage with a whole-house air purifier installation.
You See Excessive Dust Buildup
Do you feel like you dust your home only to see another layer of dust the next day? Lots of dust buildup is a symptom of poor indoor air quality. An air purifier can help effectively remove this dust and keep it out of your indoor air.
