Why Your Home Needs Better Indoor Air Quality


Did you know that your home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside? When you are outdoors, fresh air is constantly circulating. But the air in your home can quickly become stale as it collects allergens and contaminants. 

Indoor air quality has an impact on many aspects of your life. It can even impact how well your air conditioner operates to cool your home. If you’re interested in an air purifier in Starke, FL, our team would love to help. In the meantime, you can keep reading to learn more about the benefits of an air purifier for improving your home’s indoor air quality.

AC Efficiency

Even though you cannot see them, there are millions if not billions of tiny particles circulating through the air of your home. Some of them are microscopic bacteria and viruses. Others are slightly more visible particles of dust, dirt, and allergens. There are even particles that make up bad smells and pollution circulating through your home.

All of these things impact how well your air conditioner can cool your home. Even though you can’t see all of these particles, they do have an impact on airflow inside of your air conditioner. Plus, they can gather in the crevices of your AC and interfere with how well gears and other components can work together. Over time, it dust and dirt will develop a gunk that really slows down your air conditioner as it dries up lubrication.

But when you invest in an air purifier, you eliminate these particles from the air and greatly improve AC efficiency. Keep in mind that if you do invest in an air purifier, it’s also a good idea to schedule a thorough cleaning of the inside of your AC unit. Combined these services are a great way to get a fresh start and really ensure AC efficiency in the future.

Your Family’s Health

Every time you leave your home and return again, you bring in brand new germs and contaminants. Without an air purifier, these contaminants are multiplying and recirculating throughout your home. If you’ve noticed that your family is getting sick more often or experiencing worsening allergy symptoms, your indoor air quality may be to blame.

An air purifier can eliminate 99.9% of these airborne particles. You will breathe easier and the air in your home will actually feel fresher as a result of the air purification process. Allergy sufferers will have less serious symptoms, and your family is also less likely to get sick as frequently. It’s like opening all of your windows and doors to let in fresh air, but without the worry of cold air escaping your home.
