You may be considering an air purifier for your home. Maybe you're not sure how it will make a difference to your family's comfort and health. We may be a little biased, but we're pretty sure you'll notice the difference from day one.
Today's homes are tightly sealed against the elements; this also makes them very good at keeping contaminated air in.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), some pollutants' concentration is two to five times higher indoors than outdoors. Contaminants like cigarette smoke, wood burning smoke, and smoke from burnt food; gases from cleaning products and building materials; dust mites; mold; and pet dander all contribute to an unhealthy indoor environment that impacts your family's health.
Particles 10 microns in diameter or smaller, including those found in dust and smoke, are especially of concern because they can find their way deep into the lungs. Breathing in these particles is enough to aggravate the lungs and cause asthma attacks. According to the EPA, long-term exposure to high particle levels is linked to bronchitis, reduced lung function, and premature death.
