Do Air Purifiers Help Prevent Respiratory Diseases?

Certain respiratory illnesses require special care to help the body heal and protect the airways from further damage. One aspect of self-care that people often overlook is the quality of the air inside their homes. Air Comfort of KY works with homeowners in Louisville and its surrounding areas to find ways to remove airborne irritants from their indoor air to prevent respiratory illnesses from becoming worse.

What Types of Airborne Particles Are Found Inside Homes?

The air inside your home may contain several types of irritants. The HVAC system that heats and cools your home recirculates the particles as it manages airflow for heating and cooling. Airborne irritants are trapped inside the structure, especially in newer energy-efficient homes. Some of the most common airborne particles that we find in homes in and around Louisville are:

  • Pollen
  • Dust
  • Pet dander
  • Mold
  • Bacteria and viruses

What Types of Respiratory Illnesses Are Affected by Indoor Air Quality?

The airborne particles found inside homes trigger symptoms of many common respiratory illnesses such as:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • COPD and emphysema
  • Colds
  • Bronchitis

What Can Louisville Homeowners Do About Poor Indoor Air Quality?

Installing an air purifier in your home removes the airborne particles that trigger your symptoms. Air Comfort of KY offers air purifiers that clean all of the air inside the structure. The air purifiers capture even the smallest irritants to keep the air clean and healthier for breathing.

You can also install ultraviolet light filters that are proven to kill viruses, mold and bacteria in the air of your home. These products are installed within your existing HVAC system and clean the air as it is circulated and being heated or cooled.
