Homeowners in the Lake Havasu area are no strangers to allergies, even during the fall season. When spending time outside causes sniffling and sneezing, you want to make sure your indoor air is pure and fresh. Here’s how an air purifier can help you breathe easy this fall.
Reduce Outdoor Allergens
Whether you open the windows to let in the fresh fall air or you accidentally track pollen inside, outdoor allergens can find a way to circulate through your home’s air conditioning system. Fortunately, an air purifier can stop allergens and asthma triggers in their tracks. These devices rely on advanced filters to intercept and capture allergens and other irritants. Though a Minimum Efficiency Rating Value (MERV) 4 filter can capture some pollen molecules, most home purifiers use MERV 7 filters or above to reduce allergens effectively.
Remove Pet Dander
Like pollen, pet dander is an airborne particle that can lead to allergy or asthma attacks if inhaled. Nearly all air purifiers can capture and remove molecules like pet dander, which measures at least .3 microns. With pet dander eliminated from your indoor air, both you and your pets can breathe easy.
If you smoke indoors or allow guests to do so on occasion, you’ll notice that smoke tends to linger long after the fact. Since smoke can lead to irritated breathing passages and respiratory conditions, it’s important to remove it from the air. Most whole-home air purifiers can pull smoke and other odorous particles from the air.
Capture Harmful Chemicals
Not all allergens are as natural as pollen and pet dander. Instead, many are harmful chemicals that contribute to air pollution. Everything from paint to furniture to carpet releases volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air, which can irritate eyes, cause breathing problems, and aggravate asthma. An air purifier captures these harmful chemicals so you can breathe much easier indoors.
