Most of us spend a significant amount of our day inside. These indoor spaces can be full of air pollutants that aggravate conditions like allergies and asthma. The good news is there are several ways to improve the air quality inside your home.
The main sources of indoor allergens are:
- Wall-to-wall carpet
- Soft furniture
- Stuffed toys
- Damp areas
- Indoor plants
- Mattresses that aren’t in allergy covers
- Pillows and bedding you can’t wash in hot water
Air purifiers can target many of these allergic triggers. While there’s no official recommendation for the use of air purifiers for allergies, many medical experts and research studies point to their effectiveness.
A 2018 study by the European Respiratory Journal examining people with asthma triggered by dust mites concluded that air purifiers were a promising therapeutic option.
Electronic air cleaners and whole-home air purifiers, like the Carrier Infinity® air purifier from Schebler Heating and Air, use electronic filtering processes to remove airborne particles from the air. The Carrier® Infinity air purifier captures and kills many airborne pathogens.*
These more advanced filtering devices typically include a removable filter that should be inspected and replaced per the manufacturer’s recommendations.

*Based on third-party testing (2012) showing 95% of particles size 1.0 to 3.0 microns captured.
