The air inside our houses is actually 5 times dirtier than the air outside, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency. That’s because our homes are enclosed spaces and mainly due to lack of proper ventilations, especially during the cold season, they become a hotspot for mold spores, bacteria, allergens and toxic chemicals.
Most high-quality air purifiers are able to capture 99.97% of airborne particles in our home. Here are some compelling reasons why buying an air purifier is worth it.
You Have Allergies: Many people who live with animals, especially of the furry variety, experience allergies that are directly linked to their pet’s fur or dander. Children are often more adversely affected by a cat or dog’s hair than adults. An air purifier can rid the air of these impurities and keep you healthy.
Many allergies are not just related to pets, but to pollen and chemicals inside products used to keep our furniture and flooring shiny. An air cleaner with a HEPA filter can trap and remove all these allergens, while a carbon filter can purify the air of chemicals, toxic gases and wonky odors, which can trigger an allergy attack.
You Are Pregnant, Have Babies or Children: The health of an expectant mother is directly related to her unborn baby; hence preventing chemical exposure is imperative. Many doctors now believe that fetuses whose mothers have been exposed to carcinogens, may be born healthy but can develop diseases later in life, directly related to these chemicals.
Children are also especially vulnerable to toxins as their immune system does not work like an adult’s. Their developing systems cannot expel chemicals or fight off toxins as efficiently and as a result, airborne particles or chemicals may cause allergies and asthma in them. Climate Control is a locally owned and family operated business that takes your families health serious.
You Live Near Busy Roads, Industrial Sites, Forests or Volcanos: Heavy traffic and emissions from factories release carbon, sulfur and many other toxic particles that can penetrate deep inside your body. A lengthy exposure to these types of elevated pollution levels can result in heart and lung problems, a shorter life span and a high mortality rate.
Living near a forest or a volcano also means serious issues with your air quality that involve high levels of pollen and toxic fumes and odors.
You Live With Or Near Smokers: Cigarette smoke is extremely harmful to humans and more so to passive smokers. Cigarette smoke contains tar, nicotine as well as over 4,000 harmful chemicals, at least 11 of which are cancer-causing. An air purifier with a carbon filter can help get rid of these complex chemicals and ensure you live a healthy life.
You Have A New Home Or Are Planning Renovations: Remember that “new house” smell? It’s actually caused by pollutants like formaldehyde, which may cause health problems, including leukemia in humans. Materials such as paint, glues, varnishes, carpeting and flooring and wall-coverings also emit these chemicals. Many brand new furnishing and other materials have small amounts of these chemicals and continue to do so for years. What’s worse, newly-constructed homes are air tight and prevent these toxins from leaving.
With these compelling reasons, it is no wonder more and more people are starting to invest in air purifiers. After all, there is nothing more valuable than your health. Contact Climate Control and breathe easier knowing your family is safe from unwanted toxins in your home.
