Home is where the heart is, and it’s where the majority of us spend most of our time. The average American spends about 90% of their time indoors – so it only makes sense to provide your family with the healthiest possible indoor living environment.
Unfortunately, many Americans are living with harmful contaminants and pollutants in their indoor air. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the concentration of pollutants is 2 to 5 times higher indoors, and indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks.

Common Indoor Air Contaminants
You may not want to imagine it, but the average home is filled with pollutants that can be harmful to your family’s health. Some of the most common ones, include:
- Pet dander
- Tobacco smoke
- Particles from combustion appliances
- Dust mites
How Does an Air Purifier Work?
While portable air filters can be used to filter the air in a single room, whole house air cleaners are designed to be built directly into your heating and cooling system to provide clean air throughout your home. An air cleaner filters out pollutants, viruses and bacteria that regular air filters can’t remove.
These highly effective devices use a UV light system to eliminate viruses and bacteria in the air. Airborne particles are captured and killed before they circulate through your house’s ductwork and irritate or infect your family.
Some of the other benefits of a whole house air purifier, include:
They’re Cost Effective
Purchasing an air cleaner will save money compared to buying several portable filters for each room in your home. You also won’t need to change your HVAC air filter as often.
A Healthier HVAC System
The cleaner the air quality in your home, the healthier your HVAC system is, including the ductwork. Over time, contaminants can build up in your system and ductwork, causing the system to run less efficiently.
Air purifiers are convenient because they can be installed directly into your HVAC system or ductwork – you won’t even notice it’s there.
Common Signs You Need an Air Cleaner
Any home can benefit from having an air purifier installed. However, there are several reasons why you should consider one.
If you or a family member suffer from COPD, emphysema or allergies, an indoor air purifier will improve the overall air quality for them. An air purifier will also cut down on sneezing and other allergy issues. Allergens can be one of the most problematic pollutants to the estimated 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies and the 25 million people with asthma.
Stuffy or Stale Air
If the indoor air is stuffy or stale, then the air quality is compromised. An air purifier reduces the stuffiness of the air and eliminates foul smells inside your home. Foul smells could indicate the presence of mold or mildew and should be inspected immediately.
Dust Mites and Dander
Are there dust mites in your home? You’ll still need to vacuum and dust regularly, but an air purifier will reduce the number of dust mites. If you see dust mites or other debris coming from your HVAC system, contact Grove Heating & Cooling today.
