Most people assume that their heating and cooling systems already clean the air in their home. But that’s not always the case—in fact, your system could be making the air quality even worse.
The average system comes equipped with only a standard 1″ air filter, designed to stop pet hair, feathers, and other large debris from damaging the equipment—it’s not built to clean the air. While it heats and cools the air, it also stirs up allergens and distributes them throughout your home.
If you’ve noticed poor air quality throughout your house, it might be time to invest in an air purification system. Reliant can help.
How good is the air you’re breathing?
Believe it or not, the quality of the air you breathe inside your home might be worse than it is outdoors. This can be a minor irritation for some, but for those who suffer from allergies or asthma, dirty air can potentially create serious health problems.
- Most homes naturally generate about 40 pounds of dust per year for every 1,500 square feet of space.
- Just one ounce of dust can hold about 40,000 dust mites, one of the most common household allergens.
- Up to 72 trillion allergens find their way into your home every day.
