Air Purifiers: Cleaning the Air You Breathe
Have you been wondering if you need an air purifier in your Jacksonville home? Do you wake up every morning in a coughing spree? A major reason for this is due to all the contaminants in the air that enter your lungs and cause bodily reactions. The dust, pollen, and mold that cause coughing or discomfort are very difficult to remove from the air without cleaning every corner of a house. If you are living a busy lifestyle or are looking for a better way to clean the air, purchasing an air purifier can ease your allergy or asthma problems.
Even if you do not have allergies or asthma, consuming volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be risky to your health. The effects of these VOCs may not be immediate, but over a long period time, these particles can pose problems to your breathing and well-being. Scientific studies have also pointed out that sub-par air quality can contribute to respiratory illnesses and even cancer. Air purifiers use a variety of techniques to reduce airborne contaminants from the air around you. They come in different sizes and types, depending on the specific need and/or environment you live in. Models can either be smaller, stand-alone units, or attached to a larger air conditioner system.
There are many factors to consider when choosing the right air purifier. The most important is the size of the room in which you choose to clean. Another important consideration is the efficiency level of the unit itself that you desire. The efficiency refers to the percentage of particles which are trapped in a filter on one single air exchange. After a certain amount of use, it is necessary to change the filter. Different purifiers require different amounts of efforts to change the filter. This is an important consideration when choosing a model, in case you have a difficult time lifting objects or just don’t think you’ll get around to changing the filter often enough if it’s too much of a bother to do so.
Another consideration to think about when making a purchasing decision is the noise level that purifiers emit. Many times, people purchase these types of systems for their bedroom, not only to clean the air but also to provide white noise while sleeping. However, if you are a light sleeper and the noise bothers you, there are many quieter models for bedroom use that will still maintain a high quality of VOC reduction and will keep the air clean while keeping noise levels down.
The upkeep costs for an air purifier can differ from product to product. While some models require less than $50 in costs per year to keep running effectively, there are cleaners that can cost up to $200 annually in upkeep. Generally, these products have different capabilities, which is why the maintenance cost is different. These capabilities are usually based on the type of technology used to clean specific and various particles within the air.
Clean air in your home should be more than just a luxury – it is a necessity for your comfort and well-being. A quality air purification system is one way to help you breathe easier in the place that matters most – your home.
