Home Air Filters and Air Conditioning
Their role in your home
When it comes to the health of your family at home, you want to be able to breathe easy. Installing a home air filter is a must if any members of your household suffer from asthma or allergies and a good idea for anyone who wants the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your family is breathing clean, safe and filtered air.
Today’s home air filter technology is distinctly 21st century and it’s even possible to buy a home air filter and conditioning unit that will service the air in an entire house. If you aren’t willing to take on such a serious financial commitment; the marketplace is awash with portable air filters that should be within most homeowner’s financial reach.
The best piece of advice is to do as much homework as possible and visit a number of online suppliers before handing over your credit card details.
Home Air filters can be used in any room in the house, although the bedroom will provide the most noticeable results. On average we spend a third of our lives asleep and a night spent breathing filtered air will go a long way to repairing any damage caused by daily pollution.
Most home air filters eliminate a wide spectrum of airborne particles, including: dust, cigarette smoke, bacteria and chemical fumes. However, it is possible to buy filters that focus on specific pollutants. Hence, anyone living in a humid environment would do well to consider a filter that removes spores; similarly families with young children may want to think about investing in a filter that reduces bacteria and viruses. However, air filters really come into their own when removing specific allergens such as pollen and pet dander.
The importance of fresh air to our physical and mental health is well understood. Unfortunately the time-honored tradition of opening the window isn’t always an option (especially considering contemporary building techniques) and it looks as if home air filters are set to become an increasingly commonplace feature of everyday life.
