How Air Purifiers Can Improve Your Quality of Sleep

If you’ve been suffering from poor indoor air quality, there is a solution. You don’t have to rely solely on opening doors and windows to freshen up the air in your home. There’s actually a whole-house solution that can clean your air around the clock.

If you’ve been looking at air purifier service in Auburn, WA, you’re in the right place. Our team can visit your home and complete an in-home assessment to review how a whole-house air purifier would work for your family. You can keep reading to learn more about the unique benefits of an air purifier, including how one can boost sleep quality.

How an Air Purifier Works

Before we get into the benefits that impact sleep, let’s talk about how an air purifier works in general. You have two options when it comes to a whole-house air purifier. The first option uses a high-grade air filter to capture particles so they cannot pass through the air purifier. The result is clean air blowing into your home that is more than 99% free from harmful contaminants in the air. 

Your second option is a UV air purifier. Instead of a filter, you have a heavy-duty UV light with a wavelength frequency designed to neutralize all of the harmful particles in the air. This means any particles passing under the light, no matter how small, gets neutralized so that they are no longer harmful to you.

Examples of the types of particles that an air purifier can eliminate from your air:

  • Pollen and other allergens
  • Pet dander
  • Car pollution
  • Chemicals and cleaners
  • Bathroom and other bad odors
  • Bacteria and viruses

Impact on Sleep

Now we come to how cleaner air helps you to sleep better. When you take a breath, all of those microscopic particles enter your lungs and spread through your body. You’re being bombarded by irritants like chemicals and germs that are putting you at risk of getting sick. If you suffer from allergies, you’re also being bombarded by things that trigger allergy symptoms and swollen sinuses.

You may not realize that these things are impacting your sleep, but they are. Your body cannot rest when it is reacting to these harmful particles. But when you eliminate a large majority of these particles, then the air you are breathing in is much cleaner. You’re not breathing in pollen, mold, and pet dander, or the cleaning chemical that you used in your shower earlier in the day. When your body is able to rest and you can breathe easy, you naturally sleep better.

Other Whole-House Air Purifier Benefits

There are other benefits to installing a whole-house air purifier. For one, you can reduce the dust levels around your home. This makes it easier to maintain clean surfaces. 

It can also reduce the strain on your HVAC system since there are fewer particles to interfere with airflow. You may even save some money on your monthly energy costs since your HVAC system will be able to operate a little more efficiently to heat and cool your home.

Whole-house air purifiers are also very easy to maintain. In fact, they only require maintenance once each year. We have to change out the UV light or the air filter annually to give you a fresh start. Otherwise, your indoor air purifier is set it and forget it. It works around the clock, out of sight and out of the way.
