5 Health Benefits of Air Purifiers

While most people think of air pollution as a strictly outdoor issue, you might be surprised to learn that indoor air also experiences pollution. Whether from dirty ductwork, clogged air filters, or even a household pet, indoor air quality is just as sensitive as the outside air. 

At ACS, we are committed to optimizing your household’s indoor air quality. Our premium air purification system services purify the vital air you and your family breathe daily, turning your home into the healthiest and safest version of itself. Below, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of the top five health benefits of a home air purification system. 

1. Cleaner Air

When it comes to air purifiers, there’s no false advertising. Air purifiers do exactly what they imply: they purify and clean your air. A quality air purification system eliminates air contaminants you unconsciously breathe in daily. And according to the Environmental Protection Agency — these contaminants are much more prevalent than you may think. The EPA reports that indoor air can experience two to five times higher pollutant levels than outdoor air. That said, air purifiers are an HVAC essential for keeping your indoor air clean and, more importantly— safe for you and your family.

2. Less Odors

There’s nothing worse than a stubborn stench contaminating your space. Whether it’s residual smells from last night’s dinner or something your dog dragged in from outside, household odors can cause widespread discomfort for you, your family, and your guests. An air purifier with activated carbon neutralizes unwanted odors and cooking aromas by eliminating the potent particles from the air. And to address the rebuttal that air fresheners can do the job instead, we’ll tell you why that’s not the case. Air fresheners may temporarily mask odors, but they do not eliminate them. In fact, artificial air fresheners may worsen indoor air pollution by releasing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), failing to eliminate odors and posing unnecessary health risks for your household. 

3. Respiratory Relief

You need a quality air purification system if your household suffers from asthma, respiratory problems, or seasonal allergies. Common indoor irritants like dust, pet dander, and pollen can worsen your indoor quality and make breathing uncomfortable. Air purifiers combat these irritants, allowing you and your family to live more comfortably in your space. Not to mention air purifiers can also protect your immune system as a whole. Many household chemicals and solvents can weaken your immune system and increase your chances of sickness. Luckily, a proper air purifier filters out harmful chemicals, air pollutants, and bacteria, protecting you from potential illnesses that originate within your home.

4. Better Sleep

We’ve all experienced restless nights of continuous congestion or cough. And even though an extra cup of coffee or a midday nap may mitigate your next-day fatigue, nothing compares to a full night’s rest. If you’ve experienced interrupted sleep from irritating nasal congestion or respiratory pain, it’s time to consider an air purification system. Air purifiers eliminate airborne pollutants, chemicals, and allergens that worsen your sleep quality. As a result, you and your family can experience more restful nights of sleep and improve your health overall. 

5. Longer HVAC Lifespan

Air purifiers capture contaminants circulating throughout your space, preventing buildup in your HVAC air filters. Dust, debris, and other indoor air pollutants can collect in your air filters over time, and once this buildup reaches its tipping point, it can significantly strain your HVAC system. By installing an efficient air purification system in your home, you avoid this harmful buildup and lessen the burden on your air conditioning unit, elongating your HVAC system’s lifespan altogether.
