Using an indoor air filter can have a huge impact on improving the air quality in your home. This, in turn, will have a significant impact on your health, especially your respiratory system.

However, it is extremely important to take the time to choose the right air cleaner. Some can have a negative impact on your health because they produce byproducts such as ozone or nitrogen oxides.

What are some common home air quality problems?

  • Dust and dust mites
  • Pet dander, hair and odors
  • Allergies to plants or pollen
  • Unpleasant odors from various sources, including cleaning products and cooking byproducts
  • Sneezing and coughing
  • Itchy skin, eye inflammation, and membrane irritation
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from chemicals
  • Asthma attacks

Ultimately, the only true solution to fixing these problems is to eliminate the source of the air quality problem. Sometimes this is not an option, such as getting rid of a pet is a pretty extreme way to remove pet dander from the environment.

In this case, the best option is to install an air filter. Not only does it alleviate symptoms, but it also traps or removes air pollutants, creating a cleaner, healthier environment. Air purifiers with HEPA technology filters can remove up to 99.95% of pollutants from the air in your home.

What are the health benefits of using an air purifier?

One of the main reasons to purchase an air purifier is to alleviate asthma symptoms. Asthma is a common condition that affects one in twelve adults, with a wide range of symptoms, from coughing and wheezing to full-blown asthma attacks. The primary cause of asthma is inflammation of the bronchi. This means that air pollutants can further irritate the respiratory system of people with asthma and increase the frequency and severity of symptoms.

Using an air purifier that can remove both small and large pollutants from the atmosphere can greatly improve asthma sufferers’ condition and alleviate their symptoms.
