Your family’s health is important. You take steps to care for them, but have you considered how improving the air in your Wellington, FL, home could improve their health and wellness? Let’s take a look at how purifiers, dehumidifiers and ventilators work along with the benefits they offer.
Whole-home air purifiers are a great investment for increasing your home’s indoor air quality. These units often fit inside existing ductwork, making them an unobtrusive option to clean the air in your home. Be sure to discuss air purifier options when you have your next maintenance call.
Air purifiers use modern filters designed to contain particles without restricting airflow. They can remove up to 99.98% of pollutants down to 0.3 microns, and they can also kill biological contaminants. Removal of these contaminants may significantly reduce asthma attacks, respiratory infections and allergy symptoms.
Dehumidifiers use a fan to draw warm, humid air through a cold condenser coil that changes the moisture into a liquid and drains away. The dry air passes through a warm coil and returns to the room. As air circulates through the home, it returns to the dehumidifier to maintain a healthy humidity setting throughout the home.
Maintaining humidity levels at an acceptable level may provide many benefits, including a reduction in allergy symptoms and asthma attacks and a reduction in biological contaminants and insects in the home. Dehumidifiers may also prevent damage to your home from excess humidity.
Energy recovery ventilators exchange the air in the home with fresh air from the outside while transferring energy from the air, resulting in greater energy efficiency. Inline ventilators provide the same exchange of air but without the heat transfer of energy recover ventilators. Using either type to increase air exchanges in the home may lead to enhanced indoor air quality and many health benefits.
Your home’s air quality is of paramount importance to the health and wellness of your family. Reach out to North County Cooling Inc. to discuss how to improve your indoor air quality.
