Home Air Purifiers Can Help You Breathe Easier
What is the air quality inside your home? Pretty clean you’d imagine, right? Well, your indoor air quality may be much worse than you think.
A study out of the University of Colorado Boulder has made a startling discovery: The average home across America is prone to “indoor air quality levels on par with a polluted major city.” Between pet dander, dust mites, mold spores, and household cleaning products that emit VOCs, the air you and your family breathe each day may be downright harmful.
An Air Purification System Can Keep Your Home’s Air Clean and Healthy
How nice would it be to not experience allergies in your own home? Maybe you think the air in your home could smell fresher? Installing an air purifier will reduce the amount of pollution in your home’s environment. This will eliminate allergy symptoms and help you and your family breathe easier.

How Do Air Purifiers Work?
In an average house, there are many air pollutants lurking about. You can’t see them with your naked eye, but they are there, ready to pounce. Some of the most common household air pollutants are pet dander, tree and grass pollen, bacteria, mold spores, and even viruses.
All of these air pollutants are agitated by the constant air circulation from your home’s HVAC/cooling system. Air purifiers work by pulling air through a system of filters, removing the pollutants and releasing clean air back into your home’s environment.
The Power of HEPA Filters
High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are the gold standard when it comes to removing unwanted pollutants from your home’s air. Why are HEPA filters necessary to truly remove harmful pollutants?
It’s because HEPA filters are designed to trap 99.97% of particles that re 0.3 microns in diameter. To give you an idea of just how small that is – a typical human hair is about 50-150 microns in diameter. So a HEPA filter can trap particles that are several hundred times smaller. That means dust, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, mold spores and viruses can all be effectively trapped inside a HEPA filter.
As an added bonus, HEPA filters can remove unwanted smoke odors and odors from cooking. The smell of garlic and onions can be nice at dinner, but you don’t need that smell lingering.
HEPA air filters are also healthier than ionizing air purifiers. Ionizing air purifiers work by charging particles that get trapped in the filter with static electricity to neutralize them. This process creates excess ozone in your home, which is unhealthy.
Long Term Health Benefits of Air Filters
An air purification system will not just make your home smell nice, it will also keep you and your family healthier. People have reported a decrease in allergy symptoms, asthma attacks and headaches after installing an air purifier in their home. By removing most of the particles that are polluting your home, you and your family can breathe easier and healthier.
