During the summer heat in Hagerstown, MD, you rely on your HVAC system to stay cool. It’s equally important to clear your indoor air of pollutants that make it unpleasant to breathe and could even make you and your family sick. This article explains various ways that the right air purification system can help to improve your health and make your home more comfortable.
Get Rid of Cooking Odors
While summers in Hagerstown can lead to grilling and barbecuing, you may want to cook inside when it’s raining or windy. An air purification system eliminates all the odors that come from your cooking to make your home smell better to both you and your guests. It can also remove odors caused by burnt foods.
Trapped Smoking Odors
If anyone in your home is a smoker, you can use the REME HALO to remove cigarette or cigar odors trapped in your walls, floors and furniture. Those odors can cause health problems relating to secondhand smoke, including heart and lung conditions and asthma attacks. Air purifiers use activated charcoal or HEPA filters to remove those odors and keep your family healthy.
One reason you may have problems falling asleep or sleeping all night is due to the particles floating through your home. Those particles can cause you to exhibit symptoms of allergies, including a runny or stuffed-up nose and a headache. When you use an air purifier, you can remove those particles and finally get the restful sleep that you need.
No More Triggers
Anyone in your home who suffers from asthma can breathe freely because indoor air purification systems remove particles from the air that can trigger an asthma attack. The systems remove dead skin cells and dust as well as chemicals left behind by cleaning products. With the REME HALO air purifier, you can also eliminate bugs and dust mites along with spores.
Reduce Lung Cancer Risks
Even those who don’t smoke and don’t spend time around smokers can develop lung cancer, especially if they live in homes with a radon gas leak. Using the REME HALO lets you determine if you have a gas leak and absorb the gas that comes from that leak. Some of the reasons you might have a radon gas leak include:
- Cracks in the walls and/or floors.
- Pressurized gas trapped behind appliances.
- Gas that rises to the ceiling without you smelling or noticing it.
Improve Your Skin
Dry skin can feel itchy and lead to red spots or open sores. Many people have dry skin because they don’t have an HVAC system or have an old one. Or you could have the opposite problem, with summer humidity leaving your skin feeling moist and even sticky.
An air purification system can remove some of the humidity from the air and improve both the look and feel of your skin in just a few days. It can help with skin that appears dull and dry as well as with any rashes that you may have.
Avoid Germs and Bacteria
With the REME HALO, you can remove some of the common germs and bacteria that you bring home. Though kids are out of school for the summer, they can still bring home bacteria when they play with friends outside. This air purification system works on the viruses that can make your family sick, too, including e-Coli and MRSA.
Learning about the importance of indoor air purification can help you decide if your current system is doing an adequate job of cleaning your indoor air or you need to upgrade to something better such as the REME HALO. Hagerstown Heating & Cooling can check your indoor air quality and offer you options for improving it. Air purification can make your home a healthier and safer place.
