What You Need to Know Before Getting an Air Purifier

When you or your family suffer from constant itchy eyes and runny noses due to allergies, you should put down the Benadryl and start thinking about what exactly is causing all your symptoms. Spoiler — it could be your home’s poor air quality.

One of the best ways to improve your air quality is to install an air purifier — but there are a few things you should consider before making your final purchase.

The Size of the Purifier

Take a good look around your home and see what rooms you need an air purifier for and how big those rooms are. If you’re thinking of just getting portable air purifiers, you will likely need several to cover multiple rooms of your home — one won’t get the job done.

However, you may want to consider installing a whole-home air purifier to keep your air clean throughout your entire home. These will not only do a better job, but they also may use less energy than multiple portable units would.

The Maintenance of the Purifier

Whether you’re leaning toward a portable air purifier or a whole-home unit, you’ll need to do a little maintenance to ensure it can do its job properly. This typically just involves changing or cleaning the filters, but remember that if you don’t do that regularly, the unit won’t be able to collect particles from the air and can end up breaking down.

When it comes to determining what kind of air filter is best for your home, just ask the experts at Wahl Family Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. We make your comfort our top priority and can offer a number of solutions to improve your home’s indoor air quality.
