How to Help Your Household Breathe a Little Easier


How’s everyone feeling in your home these days? Health has been a huge focus for homeowners throughout the country the last couple of years, understandably. And while we can’t resolve all the health problems for you, we can certainly help you and your household breathe a little easier moving forward.

How so? With the professional installation of a whole-house air filtration system or air purifier.

“But wait, doesn’t my HVAC system already have an air filter?”

Yes, it does! But this filter actually isn’t designed to protect your indoor air quality. Instead, it is designed to protect the interior components of your HVAC system. For true indoor air quality protection, you’ll want a little help. Read on to learn more!

“Do I Really Need a Whole-House Air Filtration or Purification System?”

Not to answer a question with a question but… doesn’t everyone want to breathe the best quality air possible?

Even if your answer was a disinterested “shrug,” we are going to guess you’re still reading for a reason! Here are some signs that your home does indeed need a whole-house air filtration or purification system:

  • You’ve noticed mold or mildew growth inside your property.
  • The level of dust in your home is unmanageable.
  • There is a musty odor coming from your HVAC system’s ductwork.
  • Members of your household are suffering from asthma or allergy symptoms when indoors.
  • You consistently see dust buildup surrounding the vents of your HVAC systems.
  • You’ve never had your ductwork professionally cleaned, tested, or sealed.

The Benefits of a Whole-House System

Perhaps at this point, you’re thinking, “Okay, well, only a room or two in my house is really affected… I’ll just go buy a portable air purifier.”

Portable air purifiers are helpful, to an extent. But for truly comprehensive results, you really should contact your local home performance experts at Greenleaf to see about your other options. You’ll be rewarded with cost-efficiency and convenience!

Think about it… small air purifying units can only, as we just alluded to, handle one or two small rooms in your home. Rather than investing in multiple units to place around your home, a whole-house system will be more cost-efficient.

There’s no need to worry about maintaining multiple systems, plus a whole-house air filtration system can be installed directly into your HVAC system. This means it saves space and helps the performance of your heating and cooling equipment.

This is even more convenient because you’ll have uniform indoor air quality throughout your living space, 24/7. This will help keep you more comfortable, help you avoid illnesses in your home, and help your heating and cooling systems work more efficiently since they won’t have any airflow restrictions.

Helping Out Your HVAC System

The right indoor air quality product or combination of products will help your HVAC systems perform better, as we mentioned above. This means wear and tear will be slowed, and as a result, your HVAC system may even last longer than it would have otherwise. Of course, you always want to make sure you keep up on professional HVAC maintenance, too!
