When you think of customizations for your home, your HVAC system probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, it might surprise you to learn that there are a lot of different ways you can customize your home’s HVAC to suit your lifestyle.
Smart thermostats allow you to control your home’s temperature any time, anywhere, right from your smart device! HVAC zoning lets you pinpoint areas of the house to heat or cool. Air purifiers are great for removing irritants and allergens from individual rooms in your home.
When it comes to naming the best upgrade for your home’s HVAC, a whole-home air purification system is the obvious choice.
What is a Whole-Home Air Purification System?
Just like the name suggests, whole-home air purification systems are air purifiers. Unlike standalone air purification units, whole-home systems integrate into your existing HVAC system. This allows you to target air quality problems at the source, providing your entire home with fresh clean air. Whole-home systems combine different types of air purification technology to tackle common air quality issues. Say goodbye to allergens like pollen and pet dander, as well as irritants such as mold, dust, and pollutants.
Whole-home air purifiers are effective, AND easy to use. Once they’re installed, they run any time your heating or cooling does.
Is Air Purification Important?
According to EPA estimates, indoor air can be up to 5x as polluted as the air outdoors. Indoor air circulates much less than outdoor air. Homes and office buildings are prone to air quality issues caused by mold, mildew, dust, and bacteria. A whole-home air purification system helps to eliminate these irritants. They may even help remedy “sick building syndrome” — an occurrence where building occupants have sudden issues with health or comfort that can seemingly be linked directly to time spent indoors.
Should You Use a Whole Home Air Purification System?
If you find yourself using air purifiers year-round, a whole home purification system may be the right choice for you! Different types of plug-in purifiers tackle different types of allergens. One that is good for pollen may not be good for mold, and vice versa. Instead of investing in multiple different units to manage multiple irritants, get a whole-home system that can handle it all! You won’t have to bother with plugging and unplugging multiple small units, a whole-home system operates around the clock.
Of course, the best way to determine which air purification system is right for you is to check with the pros. An HVAC technician can inspect your home’s HVAC system and discuss your needs. Do you have seasonal allergies? Does someone in your home have specific air quality needs for medical reasons? Are there any pets in the home whose dander causes allergy flare-ups? These are all questions a technician may ask to pinpoint the right solution for you.
