Even with a filter in place the debris will eventually be recirculated right back into the air you breathe.

Cleaning for Health
Sick building syndrome (SBS) emerged as a health problem when building owners started to reduce ventilation in an effort to save on heating and cooling bills. An unintentional side effect was an accumulation of contaminants in high traffic areas indoors. This build up affects the health of those who live or work in the building.
SBS is a collection of symptoms such as burning eyes, nose, and throat. Sinusitis, dry skin, nausea, headaches, fatigue, and mental confusion are also SBS symptoms that are sometimes misdiagnosed.
The EPA has tested Indoor Air Quality nationwide and reports it being up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air.
