None of us are getting any younger, but we can try to remain young at heart. And as we age, we can keep in mind that the decisions we make now can affect us down the line. That’s true of investments, relationships, and especially our health! Now, there’s no elixer of youth to be found in your home HVAC system, but there is a change you can make now to have a healthier tomorrow. You can look into adding air purifiers to your home.
While it’s always good to get out and enjoy the fresh air, let’s admit it, a lot of us spend a lot of time indoors. And indoor air isn’t always the best for you. You’ve got dust and pet dander, fumes from cleaning supplies and that time you burned dinner, damp spots that lend themselves to mold and mildew… and without a good breeze to carry it all away, it just collects and concentrates inside your house! You might not notice it day by day, but in the long term, your indoor air quality can really impact your lungs.
Air purifiers don’t only help you manage the dust and dander you can see collecting on your shelves. Cleaners such as HEPA filters and UV lights can also protect you from bacteria and viruses, and that can be especially helpful if you share your home with older family members, little kids, or anyone with a weak immune system.
Attaching an air purifier to your central HVAC system is a good way to keep your indoor air healthy, but you may also want to consider standalone units for areas like workshops or nurseries. But above all, you should be sure to talk to an HVAC professional about what you need and what your options are, and get their opinions on the air purifier models available!
