Home HVAC Air Filtration: Process & Benefits
There’s one thing we all know for sure: when the air’s cleaner, we breathe better. When we breathe better, we feel better. The easiest way to ensure you’re breathing well as often as possible is to make sure the air inside your home is filtered.
The process of home air filtration starts with your HVAC system. Your HVAC system is responsible for heating and cooling your home. It does that by using various appliances to push and pull air through a system of ducts and vents within your home.
The thing is — that air, when it’s first pulled from outside, can contain a lot of contaminants. Things like dust, dander, dirt, pollen, animal hair, mold spores and so on. Stuff that makes you sneeze. Stuff that makes you itch. By installing a UV air filter within your HVAC system, you can keep all that junk from getting into your home.
Benefits of a Home HVAC Air Filtration System
A well-maintained home HVAC air filtration system offers numerous benefits to health and wellness for homeowners. Benefits like:
Better sleep. Air that is well-ventilated and properly filtered has lower CO2 concentrations and, in turn, is higher quality and easier to breathe. There’s also been research that suggests fresher air helps us feel more well-rested upon waking.
- Relief from allergy symptoms. The right whole home air purification system can make a huge difference. For example, the Air Scrubber Plus with ActivePure technology constantly cleans the air and surfaces of your home, removing up to 99.9% of harmful contaminants including the ones that exacerbate allergy symptoms.
- Improved family wellness. Fresher, cleaner air is better for your health in general. Your eyes, nose and throat will be less susceptible to irritation and your comfort levels will increase.
- Making it easier to keep tidy. Fewer tiny particles in the air means fewer tiny particles landing on the floor, furniture and other surfaces in your home. Quality air filtration means less to breathe in and less to clean up.
- Your entire home gets clean air. A standard filter or fan can only work in a single room, while a whole home HVAC air filtration system, especially UV ones, is capable of cleaning your entire home at the same time.
Beyond the immediate health benefits, home HVAC UV air filtration systems also offer added convenience compared to standard air purifiers. When you have one installed by a certified HVAC contractor, you’ll be able to save money and have peace of mind through service warranties and, if you’re lucky, 24/7 emergency repair services.
Are Air Purifiers in HVAC Worth It?
Yes, it is worth it to have an air filtration system within your home’s HVAC that purifies the air. UV air purifiers help extend the life of your HVAC system and promote efficiency, leading to electrical and efficiency savings that end up paying for the initial installation fairly quickly. Another added bonus is the increased home resale value that comes with this sort of HVAC upgrade.
