Air Filtration – Why It’s Beneficial for Homeowners?

Air filter


On average, an individual will spend over 50% of their day in their home. With a new work-from-home era emerging for many workplaces, this percentage is likely to increase. Considering how much time is spent at home, it’s important to ensure that the air you are breathing is clean. This is where the installation of an air filtration system comes into play. 

Air filters help to improve air quality by removing particulates from the air that you breathe. As the air passes through the filter, it traps up to 99.97% of particles (dust, dander, pollen etc.) – leaving the air cleaner than before. 

There are many benefits to installing an air filtration system for homeowners, here are Campbell Care’s top six benefits:


Increase Your HVAC’s lifespan

One of the commonly overlooked benefits of having an air filtration system is that it can extend your HVAC system’s lifespan. The absence of air filters will result in copious amounts of air pollution entering your HVAC unit. As the unit clogs up with dust and other pollutants, you’ll notice the entire system beginning to function less effectively. 

Since an air filter helps to remove airborne pollutants and dust, it eases an extra burden that your HVAC system now doesn’t need to handle. In the long run, a good air filtration system will save you more money on HVAC repairs and replacements.


Improve Home Scents

Not only will air filtration systems benefit your health, but they can also help to improve your quality of life. If you’re a pet owner or even a smoker, you’ll know that certain scents are stubborn and feel impossible to neutralize. However, an air filter can neutralize these undesirable and stubborn odours, leaving you with a better-smelling home. 


Lessen the Spread of Airborne Illnesses

Most times, when you find yourself sick, it’s due to an airborne virus that is found in the air you breathe. Airborne diseases occur when bacteria or viruses are transmitted through respiratory droplets. Every time a sick person sneezes, coughs, laughs or in any way exhales they are transiting these droplets into the air. 

A good air filter will be able to lessen the chance of airborne illnesses by eliminating these airborne particles. As a result, you’ll notice fewer colds or other contagious illnesses throughout the year in your household.


Alleviate Allergies

Common allergens that people suffer from such as dust, pollen, cigarette smoke and pet dander (particles of shed skin and fur) are usually triggered by the air you breathe as these allergens are all airborne. These allergens can result in symptoms like watery eyes, wheezing and discomfort with continuous exposure potentially leading to eczema and asthma. 

An efficient air filtration system will help contain allergens to reduce the amount of allergens found in your home’s air.


Reduce Asthma Symptoms

Most houses contain asthma triggers that often make symptoms worse for those who suffer from asthma. Factors such as dust, air pollutants and even chemical fumes from products like paints, cleaners and scented laundry supplies can all trigger an asthma attack or worsen existing symptoms. An air filter will help to remove these airborne triggers from your home and improve indoor air quality to ease asthma symptoms. 


Less Housekeeping

Have you ever run your finger along a surface in your home and just a few days after cleaning, find your finger already covered in dust again? While keeping your home dust-free might seem like an impossible task, an air filtration system can help ease this struggle. Air filters are meant to suck dust, amongst other air pollutants, right out of the air and trap it. Less dust in the air means that there is less dust left to collect on surfaces.
