Why an Air Purifier Actually Helps You Sleep Better at Night

Air purifiers offer a lot of unique benefits. But did you know that an air purifier can actually help you sleep better at night? It’s true. Better indoor air quality can help you fall asleep easier and stay asleep better, which is an added benefit for your health.

There are already enough reasons to invest in an air purifier in Crystal Lake, IL. Better sleep is just the icing on the cake. You can keep reading to learn more about how an air purifier can benefit your home, including helping you sleep better at night. 

How Does an Air Purifier Help You Sleep Better?

This might surprise some people, but the indoor air quality of your home can be up to five times worse than the air quality outside of your home. This is because particles like allergens, bacteria, and bad odors get trapped inside and continue to recirculate, even as new particles are brought inside. 

When you are constantly breathing in high levels of harmful particles, your body is actively working to fight them off. You may be having allergy symptoms due to pet dander, pollen, and chemicals, or immune responses to viruses and bacteria. Either way, your breathing is impacted negatively and therefore your sleep as well.

By reducing the number of harmful particles that are present in your air, you can lessen the impact to your health. When your body isn’t fighting off as many germs or reacting to allergens you can rest easier. Plus, you can breathe easier, and many sleep problems come from struggles with breathing. An investment in your indoor air quality is also an investment in your health, sleep, and overall well-being. 

Air Purifier Operation

A whole house air purifier goes directly inside your existing HVAC system. We usually place it near the beginning of the ductwork so that all air has to pass by before blowing out into your home. This ensures that 100% of the air filtering through your HVAC system is cleaned.

The whole-house air purifier will either have a high-grade HEPA filter or a UV light. A filter will capture particles while a UV light will neutralize them. And either option is an excellent choice for improving your sleep and overall health. 

The air purifier will work around the clock to continuously clean air and maintain a high level of indoor air quality for your home as your HVAC operates for heating or cooling. The only maintenance you have to think about is changing out the filter or the UV light once annually. Usually, our team takes care of this during an annual AC maintenance appointment.

Other Benefits

Aside from sleeping better, you’ll also experience relief from allergies to things like pet dander, outdoor pollution, and pollen. Your home will smell better because bad odors get filtered out or eliminated as well. Perhaps the greatest benefit is that an air purifier helps to get rid of viruses, bacteria, and mold that could otherwise spread and multiply.
