Saving energy means saving money. Ask any homeowner who just had a new furnace, and air conditioning unit installed, and see if their utility bill has gone down. Today’s equipment is very long lasting and energy efficient. Many times it’s extremely wise to get rid of the old system and buy a new one. Modern home systems are much more efficient in that they aren’t putting out bacterial infested air into the home when they’re running. Many homeowners are also having air purification systems installed, especially if they have family members that suffer from lung issues and allergies.
Dangers of Polluted Air in the Home
A homemaker gives each family member a hug when they leave in the morning and they’re home all day to clean, take care of pets, wash clothes, and much more. They breathe in air that is old, stale and polluted with a constant barrage of chemicals from household products used by every family member. From dish detergent to laundry soaps, great smelling colognes, rug cleaners, and bug sprays, to innocent bottles of room fragrances; all of these contain chemicals which pollute the home.
Dust, Molds, and Pollen
What looks like dust could be the skin that people lose which adds up to pounds per person by the end of the year. Imagine breathing in particles of skin, mites from the pets, and pollen entering the home when the windows are left open. Every morning when family takes their shower, dampness in the bathroom can cause mold to grow in a corner. These are just some of the reasons people are looking into buying air purifiers.
Deciding Which Air Purifier to Purchase
It pays to do some research when looking for good value air purifiers. Find one that will be easy to clean, easy to change the filter, and one that can clean the air of the tiniest of particles. Some have air speed settings, others can be set to turn off after a certain amount of time. Some air purifiers let the owner know when the air is clean with an LED light. Look for a product that will clean areas that are room size, or larger units that will clean the air in the entire home.
