A common question homeowners have is “How can I improve my home’s indoor air quality?” The next is “What is the best method to improve my home’s indoor air quality?” Two common options are humidity control and air filtration. When weighing your options, it helps to fully understand each one. Let’s take a look at both humidity control and air filtration to see how they match up in the quest for improved indoor air quality:
Dehumidifiers work by removing moisture from sticky, oppressive indoor air, which can be very helpful during a South Carolina summer. Dehumidification not only greatly improves your comfort levels, but with the moisture removed from your home’s air it decreases the chances of mold and mildew.
Air purifiers work by removing pollutants, spores, contaminants, and particles from your home’s air so it’s at an optimum breathe-easier level. This method improves your indoor air quality by up to 99.9%, depending on what kind of air filtration system you go with.
While they are each very different methods, humidity control and air filtration can make a big impact to improve your home’s indoor air quality. The type that is right for you really depends on the climate and type of air challenges you face in your home environment.
