Air Purifiers & Air Filters: Improving Your Home’s Air Quality
Cleanliness is something we pursue in our diets, our cities, our cars, our office, and especially in our home. However, having a clean home is about more than just made beds and tidy rooms. When it comes to the health of you and your family, air quality is just as important as cleaning countertops—especially for those with asthma and allergies. So, how do you improve your home’s air quality? And what’s the difference between air filtration systems and air purification systems? The experts at Caniglia are here to help you discover the best solutions for your home and family, offering air filtration system installation and repair to our community in the Omaha area.
How Do You Improve Your Home’s Air Quality?
From vacuuming often to purchasing air-purifying plants, there’s dozens of tips and suggestions on the internet for how you can improve your home’s air quality. Vacuuming and mopping can help pick up dust, pollen, pet hair, pesticides, and other pollutants that can get tracked in from outside. However, all the vacuuming, mopping, and dusting in the world won’t do much good if your HVAC system is constantly reintroducing allergens back into the air and in fine layers on your shelves. Air filtration systems and air purification systems can help improve the quality of the air that your HVAC units are cycling through your home.
What’s the Difference Between Air Filtration and Air Purification Systems?
Air filters and air purifiers both work towards the same end (better air quality), but with different means and effects. Air filtration systems work to remove allergens and other pollutants from the air, providing better air quality and relief to those of us who suffer from allergies and asthma. Air filters keep your HVAC unit cleaner internally which results in more efficient heating and cooling as well as les airborne particles (dust, dead skin, pet dander, pollen, etc.). Air purification systems, on the other hand, kill airborne organisms, such as bacteria, molds, and fungus. Using both systems together can provide the best possible air quality for your home and family, as using one without the other leaves room in the air for either harmful particles or harmful organisms.
Why Install an Air Filtration System?
Air purification systems are very popular and often considered to be a cure-all when it comes to improving home air quality. However, when using an air purifier without an air filter, you’re missing out on preventing the slew of health concerns that come with dust, pet dander, pollen, and other particles that can be carried through the air.
An air filtration system is a good investment for those with allergies and those with pets. Dust, dander, pollen and dead skin can be floating in the air, irritating your nasal passage and aggravating any current conditions. Investing in an air filtration system will improve air quality and add value to your home. Caniglia Heating & Cooling provides air filtration systems services and air filter repair in Omaha and surrounding areas.
Air Filtration and Respiratory Health
Allergies and asthma are common respiratory health conditions experienced by many people. Pollen, dust and dust mites, pet dander, and other common allergy and asthma triggers can be effectively removed with proper air filtration.
Prevent Dust Mites
Dust mites are microscopic insects that breed in areas of the home that have been neglected and have collected dust. There can be nearly 100,000 dust mites living on a single square yard of carpet—many people are allergic to these tiny insects’ waste droppings, of which a single mite can produce 20 a day. This creates a major concern for those who are allergic for dust mites, causing both allergic reactions and asthma attacks.
Reduce Pet Smell
Pets and humans alike shed skin cells daily. These dead skin cells, also known as dander, can create major problems both when it comes to smell and allergies. Does your house smell like dogs, cats, ferrets, or hamsters? Air filtration systems can help filter dander particles from the air in your home, meaning less smell and fewer allergens.
Air Filtration System Installation
Caniglia Heating & Cooling can install your air filtration system. Because of safety concerns it is best if professionals install air filtration systems, as improper installation can mean that dirty air is leaking back into your home or may hinder the effectiveness of the unit.
Upgrade Your Air Quality with Air Filtration Systems
If you believe that your current air filtration system is out of date or is under performing, it may be time for air filter repair or an entirely new system. Caniglia Heating & Cooling can inspect your current air filtration system and determine if it is time for a replacement unit.
