Signs You May Need a Whole-House Air Filtration System
An air filtration system is a device that’s designed to reduce indoor air contamination. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollution poses one of biggest health threats in America. Airborne contaminants, especially when combined with inadequate ventilation, can make the simple act of breathing a risky thing to do, especially for sensitive populations such as children, the elderly, and people with asthma and allergies. The EPA says that the quality of your indoor air can be diminished by a wide variety of sources, including combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, and tobacco smoke, building materials such as asbestos insulation and damp carpeting, and household cleaning products like chlorine bleach, floor polish, and oven cleaners.
Fortunately, the installation of a good-quality air filtration system in your home can lessen or eliminate the physical side effects of continually having to breathe contaminated indoor air. The EPA cautions that the health effects of being exposed to indoor air impurities may be experienced immediately or, possibly, years into the future. Immediate effects include eye irritation, headaches, dizziness, and lethargy, while long-term effects include respiratory disease and heart disease. If you or anyone in your family exhibits symptoms that can potentially be linked to poor indoor air quality, now is a good time to consider investing in an air filtration system – preferably one that purifies the air throughout your whole house.
