Air filtration is the key to every homes comfort – a broad statement I know – but it is the truth. Without filtration, allergies can develop, asthma, stuffy noses, headaches, and eventually equipment failure which everyone knows is not cheap or fun. Keeping your filter clean is key. In most cases, your filter should be cleaned or replaced once every 30 days.
Why Does It Happen?
- Respiratory Problems – If you’ve ever known someone who suffers from respiratory problems, then you understand how important it is to be able breathe clean air. Although it’s difficult to avoid allergen triggers outdoors, the quality of the air indoors can be controlled with a well-maintained air filtration system.
- Indoor Pollution – Scientists have warned that the level of pollutants inside our homes frequently reaches pollution levels that would be illegal outdoors. These levels are unhealthy for anyone exposed for long periods of time, but are specially bad for those suffering from respiratory ailments.
- The Solution – Researchers also note that homes built after the 1970’s have been made tighter, with less airflow, to address rising energy and heat costs, and that these tighter homes have become a major contributor to the statistical rise in respiratory problems. That is why air filtration systems are now the solution to improve indoor air quality.
