Breathe Easier With An Air Purifier
Chances are, you’ve heard of air purifiers. Yet, in case you haven’t, an air purifier is an appliance, just like a refrigerator or microwave oven. While some people swear by them, others are unimpressed. Even so, it’s a good idea to gain some insight, considering the advantages of air purifiers, including the importance of brands and filters. With the right components, you and your family may breathe easier with an air purifier.
Did you know that the quality of indoor air is approximately five times dirtier than outdoor air? Sources such as carbon dioxide from water heaters or gas stoves, tobacco smoke, perfume, dust, gases, formaldehyde from furniture or cabinetry, and other organic compounds from carpet dyes and glues contribute to the air quality in our homes. It’s no wonder that allergies and respiratory infections are at an all-time high.
Air Purifiers are intended to remove air pollutants, and high efficiency purifiers are said to remove up to 99.97% of particles, down to .3 microns. It’s important to understand that even the smallest particles of indoor pollution can have large effects. While there are specific types of filters designed for different pollutants, such as HEPA filters that are designed to capture dust, smoke, asbestos, pollen, and pet dander, there are also other filters that target and remove tobacco smoke.
The needs in your home are likely different than your neighbor or friends. This is why you should thoroughly research the air purifier unit before deciding on a specific system. For instance, Ionic Air Purifiers generate an ozone gas that is not safe when inhaled. Thus, the FDA warns homeowners not to implement these systems. The type of unit installed will also need to be relative to the size of your home or apartment.
As the seasons change in Georgia, homeowners are making adjustments in their thermostat to achieve a level of comfort for the upcoming months. Some may even be in the market for energy-efficient components and high capacity air filters.
