Many homeowners that we speak to about indoor air quality are surprised to learn that the air inside their homes is filled with airborne pollutants, and most homes have higher levels of poor air quality that what you experience outside. When you consider the amount of time that you spend inside your home, the unwanted effects of poor indoor air quality become apparent.
What is a Whole Home Air Purification System?
Whole home air purification systems are designed to clean the air in larger spaces. The systems will remove even the smallest particles of mold, smoke, pet dander and other airborne pollutants. You may already have an air purifier in your home, but these devices are designed to only clean a limited portion of your house. Airborne pollutants still exist in other rooms, and your HVAC system can deliver the pollutants into every room.
