3 Devices for Improving Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

The air inside houses is often more polluted than the air outside. People spend most of their time indoors, and well-insulated, modern dwellings can trap contaminants and conditioned air. Dust, dirt, pollen, biological growth, pet dander, and other substances can cause sneezing, coughing, sore throats, rashes, headaches, fatigue, eye irritation, and other issues. You might even notice more dust on your furniture and floors. Here are some of the best types of devices for significantly improving indoor air quality in your Peachtree City, Georgia, home.

Air Purifiers

Air purifiers use filters like those found in most HVAC systems. They can remove most pollutants and help you keep your home and your heater and air conditioner’s air filter clean. Some models can even remove bacteria from your house’s air. You can get rid of bad smells and clean the air in a small space with a portable version, or you can have a whole-home air purifier installed in your ductwork by an expert.

UV Air Cleaners

UV air cleaners use ultraviolet lamps to kill microorganisms or keep them from reproducing by damaging their genetic structures. These organisms include bacteria, fungi, viruses, and dust mites. A UV air cleaner can keep biological growth from damaging your ceilings, walls, floors, and furniture. It can also help your ductwork stay clean and prevent colds and other illnesses from spreading easily.

Energy Recovery Ventilators

An energy recovery ventilator acts like a heat pump to transfer heat from outgoing to incoming air in winter. Then, it reverses the process in summer. That way, you can get rid of pollutants without wasting energy. Energy recovery ventilators can also filter incoming air and remove volatile organic compounds. Standard air filters can’t catch these substances, which include benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene.
