Air Purifiers - A Breath Of Fresh Air! - Articles Surfing
We all need air to breathe. It is therefore important that we breathe in pure air, as the state of our health depends a lot on the kind of air we breathe. Today however, being able to have that clean air is an unlikely possibility, considering all the pollution there is around us.
Despite this, we have to carry on and we have to survive, so despite our unhealthy atmosphere, we can still breathe pure air by using an air purifier.
An air purifier helps to filter out the impurities leaving you with pure air to breathe. This means that the particles of dust, pollen, bacteria, smog and more are removed. This in turn increases the energy efficiency of the body with an overall better impact on ones health.
There are a variety of air purifiers available that help reduce odor, reduce particles in the air and destroy living micro-organisms that float through the air.
Shopping for the right purifier can be a frustrating exercise. Some purifiers actually pollute the air with harmful levels of ozone, which is a powerful lung irritant that can aggravate the condition for asthma sufferers. Therefore, before buying an air purifier, you need to determine which pollutants you want to eliminate.
Airborne particles include pollen, pet allergens, dust mite allergens, fungi and smoke, and are the most common causes of indoor allergies and asthma. A HEPA air purifier is ideal as its filters are highly efficient at capturing such particles.
Household odors and gases including cooking odors, aerosols or indoor pesticides would require an activated carbon filter which is ideal for absorbing such odors.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which are found in a large variety of household products, and various micro organisms which are everyday germs that make us sick, are all air pollutants that need to be dealt with if they affect you.
However, with advantages come some disadvantages, and this applies to air purifiers too. While it has been assumed that a clean, well-ventilated room is ideal for a person suffering from asthma, one needs to remember that closing windows also prevents air circulation. This would obviously result in deprivation of oxygen as well, besides allowing inadequate exchange of air. In some cases, the carbon material in the air filter becomes contaminated with mold, and in the long run it can aggravate the asthma or any allergy-related illnesses.
In order for our physical and mental health to thrive, we need fresh air. However, keeping windows open is not always possible, and that is where air purifiers can be utilized.
