Why Use An Air Purifier?
Have you ever considered that the air we breathe inside our homes is polluted? We know that outdoor air quality can be poor, with pollution from industry and road traffic, however, indoor air quality is often overlooked and can be 5x more polluted than outdoor air! There are a whole host of factors which can contaminate the air we breathe every day. These include heating systems, road pollution, cooking, poor ventilation, smoking, pets, dust and mould spores.
Recent reports state that living next to a busy road can increase the risk of a wide range of health problems such as heart disease and respiratory disease. The report stated that living next to a busy road is the equivalent of passive smoking 10 cigarettes per day.
According to Statita, 44% of the UK households own at least one pet. This is often a cause for allergies with pet hair and odours lingering in the air. However, with the effective use of an air purifier, we can minimise the contaminants in the air and therefore reduce allergy symptoms. Other contaminants in the air include dust, bacteria and mould spores which can aggravate respiratory medical conditions including asthma and allergies.
You may have also heard of the term “PM2.5” on the news lately. This is fine particle matter that has been linked to age-related mortality, lung conditions and cardiovascular medical conditions. This fine particle matter is either present in or the byproduct from various sources including dust, ash and soot. Combustion used in cars and home heating is a source for PM2.5 for example, however, we can reduce this with the use of an air purifier in our homes.
