“Is Something Wrong With My Air Purifier?”

If we knew the answer to that question right here and now, we would tell you. But unfortunately, (or fortunately), we’re not at your home this very moment so we can’t really give you our professional opinion.

What we can do is empower you to make the right call and investigate for yourself whether or not your air purifier is encountering some problems.

Before the anxiety sets in, we want to ask all of our customers to relax. It’s very common for air purifiers to run into issues, especially if they’ve been working diligently to keep your home safe for years on end.

Bulbs can burn out, wires can fray, and mechanical malfunctions are just a natural part of life in the technological age. But our team can help you.

Let’s talk about some of the signs you might need air purifier repair in Lake Worth, FL, and how you can better spot a malfunctioning system.

Dirty, Contaminated Air is a Bad Sign

First things first: you signed up to have an air purifier installed in your house to keep the air clean. If it’s not clean, then something is wrong, right?

In this particular case, we want customers to trust their noses and sight. If you smell any foul odors or you detect mold in the air, then your air purifier is clearly broken.

Air purifiers, especially UV air purifiers, are specifically designed to eliminate contaminants as they flow through your air ducts. There’s no sneaking around ultraviolet light as it irradiates those microorganisms.

So, if contaminants are sneaking through your air ducts and still reaching your nose, something is wrong with your system.

Don’t forget to use your eyesight as well. If you detect multiple mold infestations starting to bud in various areas, from bathrooms to kitchens, then you might have a mold problem being perpetuated through your air ducts with your air purifier malfunctioning too much to stop it.

More Illnesses Around the House

People getting sick is always a bad sign, but unless you’ve been catching illnesses from traveling outside of the house, it shouldn’t be happening often inside. More illnesses means your air purifier is just not doing a very good job at stopping contaminants.

Take a second to evaluate your health and the health of your family. If everyone is sneezing, coughing, and generally calling out sick more frequently, then we’d advise you to get your air purifier repaired so your home feels safer.

Invest in Preliminary Maintenance

It’s okay to be unsure if your air purifier is broken or not. After all, it sits in your air ducts which are out of sight and mostly out of mind. We don’t expect any of our customers to be HVAC specialists and know how to detect a problem with an indoor air quality machine.

So, one great solution for this is maintenance. If you think your air purifier is broken but you’re not sure, you can always call one of our professionals for maintenance so we can inspect the unit and check it out. If it’s broken, we can go ahead and fix it with your permission. And if it’s fine, then we’ll leave without charging diagnostic fees or anything like that.
