Signs It’s Time to Call Us about Your Indoor Air Quality

comfort-first-logoAre you finding that even though your home seems to be fairly comfortable, there’s just… something… missing? We hear these types of comments pretty frequently in our industry. After all, if you’re uncomfortable, it must have something to do with your HVAC system, right?

Well, maybe, but it could also be your indoor air quality. Homeowners often don’t realize this, but the quality of their indoor air can actually be much worse than that of the outdoor air, particularly without the right products and services in place. One of these products is the air purifier!

There are a few different types of air purifiers, each addressing a different need. For this reason, it can be hard for the average homeowner to determine that they actually do need one. Here are some signs that it’s time to consider an air purifier as a method to improve your indoor air quality:

You or Someone in Your Household Has Bad Allergies

People who truly suffer from allergies are familiar with the idea that it’s not just “spring allergies” that are a problem, but it’s “all-year” allergies. The truth is, most of these people would benefit from an air purifier in their home! After all, this is probably where they notice their allergy symptoms the most. Think about it, does this describe you?

If you’re suffering from year-round, at-home allergies, it’s time to stop blaming it on outside circumstances and address the real problem–which could very well be the dust, cleaning product fumes, pet dander, hair, and other debris that reside in the average home.

Your Clean Home Doesn’t Smell So Great

Does it seem like no matter how much you clean your home, you can’t get rid of that funky smell that keeps wafting around? This could be mold or mildew growth developing due to high humidity in the home. You don’t often think about this in the cooler months, but when humidity enters the home, it can create a perfect breeding ground for mold spores and the like. Similarly, if your home has poor ventilation it may hold onto stronger scents (like the smells from last week’s fish dinner) a lot longer. Thankfully, this can be resolved with the installation of a UV air purifier!

There Are High Levels of Dust in Your Home

Are you dusting, like, all the time? We’re sure you stay on top of the dust in your home as best you can, but if it’s accumulating at a faster pace than you think it should be, there’s a very good chance that you would benefit from an air purifier installation.

The same goes for if you have furry pets and you’re always finding their hair on the surfaces of your home. While a whole-house air purifier won’t get rid of all the hair, it will pull a substantial amount of it out of your air, helping anyone with allergies and helping with overall improved indoor air quality.
