Did you know indoor air is often worse than outdoor air?

Have you ever thought about your home’s air quality before? Your home’s air quality is extremely important, especially if you have children, and indoor air quality is almost always worse than outdoor air quality. What can you do to help improve your home’s air quality? The Qualitair whole-home air purifier, alongside a HEPA air filter, can ensure your home has the freshest, cleanest, safest air possible.

Let’s take a look at this air purifying system so you can decide if it’s right for you.

How Is Your Home’s Air Quality?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air contains 2 to 5 times higher concentrations of some pollutants compared to typical outdoor concentrations. Some types of indoor pollutants include:

  • Mold
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Pet dander
  • Radon
  • Lead
  • Pesticides
  • Asbestos
  • Ozone
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

Why Is Air Quality Important?

Bad air can cause a variety of symptoms ranging from annoying to potentially life-threatening, including:

  • Irritation of the throat, nose, and eyes
  • Coughing
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Chest tightness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Asthma
  • Heart disease
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Cancer

What Is a Whole-Home Air Purifier?

The Qualitair whole-home air purifier is added to your existing HVAC system, ducts, and filters, to purify the air in your home every time the AC or heat comes on. This system purifies your air using UV light and ozone (which never escapes into your home) to kill microorganisms and neutralize odors. This is similar to how nature purifies the air outdoors with sunlight and wind.

Benefits of a Whole-Home Air Purifier

Qualitair air purifiers have many benefits, including:

  • Treats your whole home’s air, not just one room
  • Invisible, silent protection
  • Automatically works each time your HVAC system is in use
  • Low-maintenance and reliable – simply replace the UV and ozone bulbs once every 2 years
  • Uses less electricity than a 60-watt light bulb
  • Does not release ozone into your home

Important Note

Whole-home air purifiers are an excellent addition to your current HVAC system, but they aren’t intended to replace a high-quality HEPA filter since they can’t remove particulate matter like pollen, pet dander, and dust. Replace your HVAC system’s filter regularly, even after adding a Qualitair purifier to your system.
