Many of us don’t think too much about the quality of air at home. Consider we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors, and about half of our time at home, indoor air quality has a significant impact on our overall health and comfort. Whether or not you or a loved one suffers from allergies, or breathing conditions such as asthma, the fact is that air quality ranks among one of the most significant factors for our health. And even at home, we are constantly exposed to small amounts of allergens and toxins that aren’t easy to detect. This can stem from items like carpet, furniture and of course, household chemical cleaners.
To help counteract these types of air pollutants and improve the quality of air in your home, having a home air purifier is a must. Here are five benefits of how an air purifier can help improve the air quality in your home.
Dust and dander easily accumulate throughout the home, especially in areas like the bedroom where dust can easily latch onto fabrics like the bedding and curtains. When you sleep at night or simply walk around, you’re stirring up those allergens that can aggravate your breathing and sinuses. Air purifiers work to remove airborne allergens from your home and help alleviate your allergies.
If you have a pet, then dealing with dander and odour can often be a problem to combat. But with an air purifier, it can help capture and eliminate those pesky odours and cleanse the air, leaving it fresh and odour-free.
Alleviate Breathing Conditions Like Asthma
Dealing with any breathing issues should be reason enough to have a purifier installed at home so that you can breathe easy and feel comfortable. Since many air purifiers can capture up to 99.97% of microscopic particles that pass through your home, you can imagine just how much of a difference it can make for alleviating breathing-related conditions.
Perfect for Smokers in the Home
If your loved one just can’t kick the habit and you’re uncomfortable with the smoke in or around the house, a purifier can help filter their air and remove those intense smoky odours as well.
Helps You Live in Comfort
Whether you live with a pet, a smoker, or suffer with any uncomfortable, aggravating symptoms at home, using an air purifier can help to improve the level of comfort for you and your entire family.
Although we may not give much thought to our aggravating symptoms in relation to air quality at home, it’s time to start considering it. Your home is your safe haven, but it’s certainly not resistant to pollutants and toxins that can impact your health. Take advantage of an air purifier so you can live in comfort at home.
