There are so many systems that can help you improve your air quality, but knowing your own symptoms can tell you what unit to shop for to get the best breathing you can. Here is what humidifiers, air purifiers, and air filters do to improve improve the quality of your indoor air.
If you have bad allergies where you are constantly blowing your nose and end up with dry nasal passages or nosebleeds, humidifiers are extremely beneficial. They pump water into the air to keep it moist and so when you breathe in, you breathe in moist air, and not dry air that will further irritate your already sore nose.
Whole home air filters are the most common form of air quality that homeowners have, as it benefits everyone. Not everyone appreciates moist air as they don’t have dry noses and don’t need a humidifier and some don’t feel the physical symptoms of gases that cause headaches and don’t need air purifiers. Air filters remove things that make everyone sneeze whether they are allergic or not, like dust, pet dander, and regular allergens, therefore benefiting everyone in the household.
While air filters remove physical irritants floating around in the air like pet dander, allergens, and dust, air purifiers remove invisible irritants like gases. This can be smoke, toxins, and natural gas that can cause headaches and nausea.
