You take an average of 30,000 breaths each day without even thinking about it. But when the contaminated air in your home is causing you and your family to suffer from allergy-like symptoms all year long, each of those 30,000 breaths can feel a little...icky (for lack of a better term.)
Many homeowners here in California have taken the initiative to clean up the air they breathe in their homes using air purifiers — but what is it that makes for a good air purifier here in Alameda, Contra Costa and Marin counties? The indoor air quality professionals at Hassler have a few tips on finding the right purification equipment for breathing healthier at home,
What Is Your Air Purifier Being Used For?
In other words, what is your goal in increasing your IAQ? For example, are you trying to remove pollen, cigarette or wildfire smoke, or excess pet dander? Maybe one of your family members is particularly sensitive to an allergen that is prevalent here in the El Cerrito area (pollen counts are very high this time of the year) — or to a chemical that is present in your home from cleaning supplies or building materials and furniture. Knowing which types of contaminants you are hoping to remove from the air will help you select the perfect air purifier.
Where Is Your Air Purifier Being Used?
This will impact the size of air purifier you purchase. The smallest air purification units are geared towards those that only need to make the air in their personal space cleaner. From there, they ramp up in size based on the room that needs purification. Is there only one room in your home that is prone to contaminated air, or are you looking for more of a whole home solution? Hassler specializes in installing whole-home air purification systems which remove the pollutants and harmful chemicals from the air recirculated by your heating and cooling system.
Are Your IAQ Woes Seasonal?
There are a number of symptoms to look out for when it comes to suffering from poor IAQ, such as:
Dry sinus passages
Post nasal drip
Sneezing, coughing or wheezing
If you notice that these symptoms only occur during one particular season year after year, a whole home air purification system may help reduce or alleviate them while in your home.
