When to Get an Air Purifier

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says that air purifiers can help improve your home’s indoor air quality. While having a well-sealed space is great for energy efficiency, it can compromise the quality of the air you breathe. An air purifier can help prevent pollutants from accumulating in your living spaces. A local air conditioning expert shares some signs that you probably need to get an air purifier in this post.


Someone in your household has allergies or asthma. Some of the most common things that trigger allergies and asthma are dust, mold, pollen and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like air fresheners and cleaners. An air purifier can help minimize these allergens in your home, which is beneficial if you have a family member with asthma or allergies.

You want to improve your indoor air quality. Along with an efficient air conditioning system, an air purifier will improve your home’s indoor air quality. It can help provide relief for symptoms related to poor indoor air quality, such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, an itchy throat, itchy eyes and sneezing and coughing. You’ll know you’re suffering from poor indoor air quality-related symptoms if they lessen after you leave the house. Also, if you’re having difficulty getting rid of smells in your home, experts suggest getting an air purifier with an activated carbon filter.

You want to reduce your chance of getting sick. Under specific airflow conditions, an air purifier can get rid of some bacteria and viruses, aiding in keeping your household healthier all-year-round, especially during the colder seasons. To maximize this benefit, consider getting a UV air purifier. This type of equipment features ultraviolet light that offers more protection against pathogens in the air.
