When you hear the term indoor air quality, what comes to mind? Perhaps you think about the temperature inside your home, or how powerful your HVAC systems are. These are certainly components of how good, or how poor, your indoor air quality is, but it’s not the end all to be all.
Indoor air quality is impacted by humidity, as well as how clean your air is. And without the right products and services in place, your indoor air quality can actually be worse than the quality of the air outside. But you can change this! How so?
With the installation of a whole-house air purifier. Read on to learn more!
Does a Whole-House Air Purifier Really Make a Difference?
If you want your family to breathe the healthiest air possible in your home, then a whole-house air purifier is a way to achieve this result. You might think that your HVAC air filter is enough. But this air filter is actually in place to protect the HVC system itself from dust, dirt, and other debris that can get inside and damage its components.
It does help your indoor air quality efforts, but it won’t completely resolve problems such as:
- Excessive dust buildup on the surfaces of your home, no matter how much you clean.
- Worsened asthma and allergy symptoms among household occupants who suffer from these ailments.
- Condensation on walls or windows, indicating poor ventilation.
- Musty odors in the air.

How a Whole-House Air Purifier Can Serve You
At this point, you might be convinced that an HVAC air filter isn’t enough, but why not get a couple of portable air purifying systems?
If you have a studio apartment or a 1-bedroom home, this might suffice. However, if you want your whole-home to be addressed otherwise, you really will benefit from a whole-home air purifier being installed directly into your HVAC ductwork. Heres why:
It’s Cost Efficient
Small, portable air purifiers are designed the manage the air quality in a room–something no bigger than 500 square feet, usually. This means if your home is any bigger than this, you’ll need to invest in multiple units to place throughout your home, and you’ll have to maintain these systems and consistently buy filter replacements for them.
This makes a whole-house option a more cost-efficient option. Plus, cleaner air means you won’t have to replace those HVAC air filters as often either, saving you even more time and money.
A whole-house air purifier, as we mentioned above, can be installed directly into your HVAC system, and/or its air ducts. This means that you don’t have to take up too much space with multiple smaller units, nor do you have to live with the noise that’s associated with multiple portable systems.
