Do Air Purifiers Really Make a Difference in a Home?

Monday, January 23rd, 2023

Most homes have poorer indoor air quality than they should. This is an unfortunate side-effect of the way modern homes are constructed to improve energy efficiency: the homes are built “tight” so little heat is able to escape in cold weather or get inside during hot weather, but this also prevents an influx of fresh air. Unwanted contaminants build up inside homes without any fresh air to sweep them away and replace them. 

This is where air purifiers can serve an important purpose. But do these purification systems make any real difference?

Winter Is Tough for Healthy Indoor Air, But We Can Help

Monday, December 13th, 2021
