With the holiday season almost wrapped up, it’s time to start thinking about goals for the New Year. Common New Year’s resolutions include goals geared toward increasing healthy habits. Why not make a resolution to increase your home’s air quality next year?
Increasing your indoor air quality (IAQ) results in many health benefits. From snoring less to sleeping more, to decreasing allergy symptoms and reducing the chances of catching colds and flu, let’s go over 3 main benefits of installing a whole house air purifier in your home or investment property
Air Cleaners, Air Purifiers, and Air Filters
Homeowners are often confused by what to call the type of system they want in their homes. In a nutshell, air cleaners usually refer to systems that use filtration technology while air purifiers use ionization technology.
But in their own way, they all clean, purify, and filter your home’s air. Which type of IAQ system is best for you depends on what types of contaminants you’re most keen on ridding your home of. For example, there are some systems that are better at targeting allergens such as pet dander and pollen, while others are better at eliminating smoke and odors.
No matter which system you choose, let’s go over 3 major benefits of scheduling a whole house IAQ system in your home.
1. Improved Sleep Quality
The health issues caused by not getting enough sleep–or not enough quality sleep–are becoming more apparent. Studies have shown that chronic sleep deprivation can cause a host of health issues from poor concentration and headaches to major health problems such as asthma, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, depression, sleep apnea, and even type 2 diabetes and cancer.
Studies have also shown that poor indoor air quality is linked to conditions such as snoring and sleep apnea. If you snore or suffer from sleep apnea, increasing your home’s air quality can improve these conditions.
2. Improved Health
Did you know that the air inside your home can be 5 times worse than the air outside? That’s because today’s modern homes were designed to be airtight which means the pollutants you and your family bring inside simply recirculate through your home’s air.
Poor IAQ can cause health issues because irritants and allergens in the air can aggravate your mucous membranes and respiratory system. Headaches, eye irritation, dry throat, dry nasal passages, sinus congestion, and a runny nose are some common symptoms.
And when someone in your household is sick with the common cold or flu, you can reduce the chances of everyone else getting sick. There are IAQ systems that specifically target bacteria and viruses.
3. Improved Allergy Symptoms
Anyone who suffers from allergies knows how annoying and frustrating it is. By reducing allergens in the air such as dust, dust mites, dirt, human and pet dander, pollen, and even mold spores, you’ll see your allergy symptoms improve significantly.
