3 Reasons to Use an Air Purifier

Use an Air Purifier

If you’re interested in increasing home comfort, consider using an air purifier capable of removing odors, allergens and volatile organic compounds from your home. Otherwise, your home in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, might turn into a health hazard instead of a place to relax.

Remove Odors

Air purifiers with carbon filters can remove odors from your home. Carbon filters have tiny pores that are adept at pulling in and trapping odors as the air passes through them.

Mind the instructions on how often to change these filters. When they get full, they start to release the odor-causing molecules back into your home. This can create an unpleasant environment.

Cut Down on VOCs

A carbon filter can also pull volatile organic compounds from your indoor air, but you must get one rated to tackle VOCs.

How much carbon is in the filter will determine how effective the air purifier is at removing VOCs; the more carbon, the better. Buy a filter rated to handle VOCs, and your air purifier will remove these harmful chemicals from your indoor air.

Pull Pollen and Dander

An air purifier with a HEPA filter is capable of pulling pollen and dander particulates from the air. These are two major allergens that can cause you and your family to experience congestion in the morning.

Most HVAC systems don’t have a powerful enough motor to pull air through a HEPA filter. The solution is to get an air purifier with a HEPA filter for each bedroom in your home.
