Why Whole-Home Air Cleaners Are The Best Indoor Air Quality Solution
Indoor air quality is a serious health concern. Unfortunately, the germs, viruses, and allergens that make us sick are so small that all we see is dust. There are also building materials in every home that give off VOCs which can build up indoors. This problem is sometimes known as Sick Building Syndrome. These volatile organic compounds are gases which come from certain liquids and solids. They are released from building materials like carpeting, paint, insulation, and many other common materials in a home or commercial building.
There’s nothing more important than having good indoor air quality in your Longmont home. There are many problems that affect our health when there is poor indoor air quality. Health problems can range all the way from Legionnaires’ Disease, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, sinus infections, irritated allergies, asthma, and viruses. Poor indoor air quality can be the issue you hadn’t thought of if you or a family has experienced recurring illnesses.
The best indoor air quality solution in Longmont is the whole home air cleaner. Here’s why.
How Is Your Indoor Air Quality?
The household HVAC system will continually circulate polluted air that is riddled with dust mite debris, pet dander, mold spores, dead skin cells, dirt, dust, and other materials that can aggravate allergies and make your family sick. That’s why we at Groulx Mechanical Heating & Cooling recommend that you install a whole home air cleaner. We also install humidifiers to keep air moisture at an ideal level to keep you and your family comfortable and healthy.
Whole Home Air Cleaners vs. Portables
A whole home unit is different from a portable air cleaner in that it automatically cleans the atmosphere inside the entire home at the same time. Portables have to be moved around the house from room to room, only cleaning one room at a time. By the time you move it to the last room, the first room is already contaminated again as the air ducts blow it back through.
What To Expect With Whole Home Air Cleaner Maintenance
You’ll be glad to know that the air filters on whole home air cleaners last much longer than the ones on portable units. The equipment is installed directly into the HVAC system for automatic operation. There is very little maintenance involved which can be taken care of during your seasonal air conditioning maintenance service.
Types Of Whole Home Air Cleaners
When you look into installing a whole home air cleaner, you will find different options available. It is best to talk to a reliable Longmont heating and air conditioning contractor for advice. Every home and every family are different, so there will be particular air cleaners that are right for you. Some air cleaners will filter out small particles while others also combat germs. There are some that will also take the odors out of the home. And then, there are those that do it all.
Take a look at the Lennox PureAir air purification system. This is one of the whole home air cleaners we install at Groulx Mechanical Heating & Cooling because they handle all the aspects necessary to provide families with good indoor air quality. They work automatically to remove airborne particles, germs and bacteria, and chemical odors and vapors. If you have pets, the Lennox PurAir system will constantly remove 99.9% of the pet dander, dust, and air pollen inside your home. And it will remove more than 90% of viruses and germs including the flu, cold, and MERSA. It will destroy approximately 50% of the household chemical vapors and odors as well.
Cleaner, Fresher Air Means Less House Cleaning For You
As the whole home air cleaner works to remove all the dust and other particles in the air, your home will stay cleaner for longer. This means you won’t be dusting and sweeping as often since the air cleaner is removing all that dust for you.
