Your indoor air in Mount Juliet, TN, can be five times more polluted than the outdoor air, according to the EPA. Indoor air doesn’t circulate as much as the air outside, so there are more airborne pollutants in your enclosed living space. Read on to learn about three benefits you can expect from installing an air purifier in your home.
Relieve Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
The air purifier traps allergens such as pollen and spores so that they never circulate in your indoor space. This protects people who have allergies.
In the United States, 8% of adults have asthma, according to the CDC. People with asthma find it difficult to breathe air filled with pet dander, dust mites and pollen. An air purifier traps the allergens and pollutants that remain suspended in the air when you vacuum your carpet and other areas of your home.
Eliminate Chemicals and Odors From Indoor Air
Pollutants such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide, as well as unpleasant odors, can still get into your home even with the windows and doors closed. These fumes are common in areas with high vehicle traffic. A U.S. study of more than 63 million people found that exposure to air pollution increases the risk of hospitalization for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, according to Medical News Today.
The air purifier has activated carbon to cleanse the air of chemical contaminants. The activated carbon filters can also trap gases and particles that give off odors. This is especially important when you need to avoid smoke and spice odors from the kitchen that bother your guests.
Reduce Airborne Diseases
Colds and flu are the most common airborne illnesses. If one household member gets sick, they’ll spread it to others, as everyone is breathing in the same air. We can help you avoid this by installing an air purifier.
Filters can trap bacteria and viruses. Modern systems also include UV lamps, which can kill viruses and inactivate the DNA molecules of bacteria and other microorganisms.
