How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Did you know that the air in your home can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside? You may have heard the saying “a breath of fresh air,” and that’s just what you’re getting when you walk outside and breathe deeply. If you pay close attention, you may even feel the difference between breathing inside and outside.

But that doesn’t mean you have to accept defeat when it comes to your indoor air quality. When you invest in air purifier service in Clackamas, OR, our team can help you improve your indoor air quality. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of a whole house air purifier.

How an Air Purifier Works

Air purifiers come in a variety of forms and functions. However, they all work essentially the same way. The goal of an air purifier is to eliminate harmful particles in the air of your home. Some air purifiers use UV light to deactivate and neutralize particles so that they are no longer harmful. Other air purifiers use extremely strong filters to trap even the smallest particles floating through your air such as odors and viruses. 

A whole house air purifier is typically installed inside your existing HVAC system. Our team can put it in a place where all of the air filtering through the system has to pass by. This is how we ensure 100% of the air in your home gets filtered and cleaned. Sure, you can invest in a smaller, portable air purifier. But, you will never clean all of the air in your home that way. You’ll be stuck, moving it from room to room and never quite seeing the results that you desire. 

Health Benefits of an Air Purifier

Air purifiers are an investment in your health. When you eliminate viruses, bacteria, and dust from the air, you are less likely to get sick. Sure, you’re still going to come into contact with all sorts of germs when you’re away from home and bring them back in. But, an air purifier ensures that those germs do not continue to re-circulate and spread. You will notice a positive difference in allergy symptoms as well as how frequently you get sick.

Other Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

An air purifier is not the only way to improve your indoor air quality. You can also invest in services like duct cleaning and duct sealing, both of which our team can help with. If you’ve had your air conditioner for some time, there’s a good chance that dust and dirt have gotten into the system. We can wipe down the surfaces inside of your ductwork and even sanitize them if they are particularly dirty. 

Then we can pressurize the ductwork and identify any holes that are allowing cold air to escape and dust and dirt to get in. We can seal those holes, which benefits your house but also lowers your energy bills by keeping cold air inside your home. Plus your AC won’t have to work as hard to cool your home so it won’t take on as much wear and tear.
