It seems completely counterintuitive, but the air inside your home is anywhere between five to ten times more polluted than the air outside. Obviously there are pollutants outdoors, but they just pass through with the wind. The air in your home, on the other hand, stays trapped within the walls. Beyond pollutants that come in from outside, pets, common household cleaners and other products such as paint contain contaminants that compromise the air in your home. Of course you want to provide the optimal living conditions for your family and an air purifier is your best choice for protecting your family against breathing in unclean air.
How Do Allergens Get Into My Home?
Even with the most scrutinizing cleaning, it is impossible to keep allergens from coming through your door. As you walk through the door, pollutants are there clinging to your clothing, the bottom of your shoes or following close behind you. Pets bring allergens in from outdoors and add their own in the form of dander and hair shedding. No matter how diligent you are about keeping them under control, mold spores, dust and pollen will make their way into your home.
Will An Air Purifier Be Effective In My Home?
Absolutely. Room air purifiers, especially those utilizing HEPA filters, can easily handle the allergens dwelling in your home. HEPA filters are the gold standard of the filter world because they effortlessly eliminate 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns in the air. By capturing these particles and filtering them out of the air, they will no longer be floating around your home and into your family’s upper respiratory system causing irritation and allergies. HEPA air purifiers constantly work to competently remove whatever allergens make it in through your windows and doors.
How Do Common Household Cleaners Harm The Air In My Home?
When you want to keep your family from harmful germs you use common household cleaners. Unfortunately these cleaners contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are released out into the air with every spray of the bottle. VOCs can cause upper respiratory problems as well as exacerbate existing conditions. Consciously buying cleaners that do not contain VOCs can lessen their presence in your home, but it is nearly impossible to remove them completely as most paints contain VOCs as well. While HEPA filters remove common pollutants from the air such as pollen, dander and other visible irritants, a quality air purifier should also include an activated carbon filter as well that absorbs vapors and gasses from the air. This includes VOCs as well as other impurities in your home’s air. A air purifier that utilizes a HEPA filter paired with an activated carbon filter will work to make your home as clean as possible, helping your family breathe easy.
What Benefits Will I Notice With An Air Purifier?
Owners of air purifiers testify to an ease of breathing, lessened allergy problems and relief from various upper respiratory problems. It is always beneficial to remove pollutants from the air in your home and it is amazing what a difference you will notice in the quality of air you breathe in.
What Makes A Home Air Purifier Superior?
As with most products that become popular, manufacturers race to find out how to make them as cheaply as possible. Air purifiers are no exception and you definitely get what you pay for. Cheaper models will need parts replaced more frequently and may not work as efficiently as a higher quality model. Higher quality models use activated charcoal filters and HEPA filters, preceded by a pre-filter. The pre-filter catches larger particles, extending the life of the HEPA filter. We sell only the highest quality HEPA air purifiers at Clean Air Plus.
