An increasing number of people suffer from the watery, itchy eyes or the sneezing and stuffiness of hay fever, allergies, asthma and other respiratory ailments, and it’s become necessary that homeowners pay attention to ways that can help to improve indoor air quality. It is estimated that the levels of air pollutants indoors may be two to five times higher than outdoor levels. An indoor air cleaner can make a difference and help relieve some of the symptoms that can be so uncomfortable at times.
Poor indoor air quality can affect more than those who are most vulnerable; pollutant-filled air can also cause headaches, sleepiness, nausea, disorientation, general fatigue and more. Fortunately, there are many options available to have cleaner air and limit the presence of allergens in your indoor air.
Air cleaners contain various internal filters that pull “dirty” air in, trap the dust and allergens, and then release the “clean” air back into the home. They are available in several different styles, sizes, capacities and price ranges, so the one you ultimately choose will depend on several factors, including:
- Your budget
- The size of your home
- Whether you want a whole-house air purifier or just one for a room
- The space you have available
If you’re just looking for a model to help clear the air in your bedroom (for example) while you are sleeping, you’ll have plenty of models to choose from, because these smaller, stand-alone models are the most popular. While these are designed to be tucked into the corner of a room, others can be installed as an addition to your central heating and air system, filtering air throughout the entire house.
Your Vail air conditioning and heating professionals at Climate Control can help you choose the option that is best suited to your needs and budget, whether it be a large, permanent unit, duct-mounted or portable. We’ll give you all the necessary information to make an informed decision.
