Allergies are one of the chief causes of chronic pain in the United States, ringing in at number six. With more than 50 million sufferers, the costs associated with treating allergies exceeds more than $18 billion dollars, annually. While most people are especially susceptible to allergens in the spring and summer months, many experience allergies year round.
Perennial allergic rhinitis is the condition faced by those people who experience sensitivities to allergens such as dust, dander, mold, and bug debris, regardless of the season. As an alternative to medicine, installing an HVAC air purifier in your home will help reduce the concentration of allergens and eliminate those year round allergies.
An HVAC Air Purifier Improves Air Quality
So what does an air purifier do? An HVAC air purification system improves the quality of the air being forced through your home by filtering out allergens and other pollutants. Other pollutants can include scents emitted by air fresheners and candles, microplastics, bacteria, and viruses.
HVAC air purifiers can reduce the number of pollutants by up to 99%, meaning better air quality throughout your home. As your HVAC system is turned on during the summer or winter months, allergens that once settled in your vents are stirred up and pushed out into your home.
A purification system helps eliminate these allergens as well as any new ones that enter your home. These systems can collect particles as small as 0.3 microns, eliminating a majority of the allergens in a typical home.
How Does an HVAC Air Purification System Work
The EPA reported that many homes, built with construction focused on keeping the weather out, can actually house more air pollutants than the smog found in big cities. With forced air systems, whether a furnace or central air unit, air is pulled into a return, forced through the HVAC unit to either heat or cool, then pushed out through vents to the rooms in your house.
When a central air purifier is added to the system, the air is pulled into the return and forced through the more comprehensive purification system before going through the HVAC unit and released into your home. Plus, you don’t have to choose between a furnace or a central ac air purifier. While your HVAC system already includes a filter, an air purification system is either a separate unit installed after the return or a more comprehensive filtration unit added to your current HVAC system.
