Our homes are now built “tighter” with the use of additional insulation, double glass windows and doors, and more weather stripping. This “tight” form of construction is much more resistant to fresh air exchanges and therefore tends to trap the stale, polluted air that some of us spend over 90% of our time breathing.
As a result, many forms of bacteria and viruses can thrive on the inside of heating and air conditioning systems causing numerous health problems. There are also particles of pollen, dust mites, bio-aerosols, dirt, and pet dander to consider. Fortunately, you have us. At Home Comfort Experts, your safety and comfort are our top priorities.

The Remarkable Benefits of Having a Home Air Purifier
Many researches have documented the amazing benefits of air purifiers. Nowadays, air purifiers come with advanced filtration systems that allow them to net harmful particles in the air.
The most efficient ones available in the market today have filters that offer nearly a hundred percent efficiency. Below are other notable benefits of home air purifiers and why investing in them makes perfect sense.
Relieves Asthma Symptoms
Pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and other pollutants can irritate the airways and cause breathing problems. While vacuuming your floors, carpets and beds can eliminate some of the pollutants, they won't be able to get rid of the ones in the air.
Fortunately, most home air purifiers have HEPA filters that effectively remove 99.7 percent of the particulate matter circulating in the air. When the pollutants are removed, asthma symptoms are relieved, and you can enjoy other health benefits like increased life expectancy and better sleep.
Neutralizes Unpleasant Odors
Benzene, gasoline, and formaldehyde will break down at room temperature and produce an off-gassing odor. Known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), these chemicals are typically found in air fresheners, aerosol sprays, and upholstered furniture.
VOCs can cause breathlessness and nausea and can also affect cognitive functions. Air purifiers with activated carbon filters and HEPA can effectively trap particles and gasses and reduce the pollutants found in the air.
Also, air purifiers can easily absorb any smoke and the smell of spices and cooking oil. If you want your space to smell clean and fresh at all times, investing in an air purifier is your best option.
Minimizes Airborne Diseases
Airborne conditions like the flu and cold are spread through minute pathogens found in the air. When one person in the household catches the flu, it's not unusual for some family members to get sick as well.
Air purifiers with HEPA filters are designed to capture viruses and bacteria, so the spread of airborne diseases is minimized. If you have children, older adults, or anyone with a weak immune system living with you, getting an air purifier is a must.
Helps Improve Sleep
Indoor allergens like fungi, dust mites, and bacteria can trigger hay fever and other allergies. Frequent nose congestion, watery eyes, sneezing, sore throat, and coughing are some of the common symptoms that can disrupt your sleep.
When you lack sleep, you can experience daytime drowsiness that significantly affects your productivity throughout the day. Air purifiers can remove allergens in the air, allowing you to enjoy cleaner air and better sleep.
Helps Increase Life Expectancy
Dirty indoor air can affect the body's neurological, respiratory, and cardiac systems. Without an air purifier, there is a higher chance for gasses and chemicals from common household products to accumulate in the lungs.
In some instances, the harmful airborne particles are so tiny that they can penetrate the blood-brain barrier and affect your cognitive and brain functions. An air purifier can trap even the tiniest particles so you can enjoy better air quality indoors.
Factors to Consider When Choosing a Home Air Purification System
Often, your HVAC system's filtration can keep indoor air clean. However, there are instances when you might need to invest in an additional purification system to ensure your household's protection against allergies, respiratory problems, and other health conditions.
If you want to invest in an air purification system, you must ensure you get one that best suits your needs and budget. Before purchasing an air purification system for your home, make sure you keep the following important factors in mind:
Gas, Odor, and Chemical Filtration
Most air filters won't provide filtration of vapors, odors, gasses, and airborne chemicals. If you want effective elimination of indoor vapors and odors, opt for ones with high-efficiency HEPA filters with charcoal or activated carbon.
Permanent Particle Removal
Some air purification systems rely on an ionization process that will impart electrical charges to airborne particles. Once charged, the particles will cling to each other and attach to surfaces or fall to the floor.
However, with a similar system, there is always the risk of the particulates returning to the air indoors. Air purifiers with mechanical filtration and HEPA filters can trap particles effectively so they won't make it back into the air indoors.
Filtration of Very Minute Particles
HEPA air purification systems are designed to remove 99.97 percent of air particles that are 0.03 microns (or larger). Amazingly, similar air purifiers can also easily remove particles as small as 0.003 microns.
Most filtration systems start with strong airflow that effectively removes contaminants. Unfortunately, the efficiency of some models can drop after a few weeks. Ensure you opt for an air purification system with high-efficiency HEPA filtration so you can rest assured that efficiency won't disappear in just a few weeks.
The HEPA-AIRE duct cleaning method used by Home Comfort Experts assures you that your ducts are being cleaned with the most advanced equipment available. This filtration system is so efficient that it captures contaminants 1/300th the diameter of a human hair and returns filtered “hospital grade” air to your home.
