Air quality, especially in New Mexico, is quite important. Since the pandemic’s start, indoor air purifiers have become more popular. The question is, do you really need one? The experts at American Restoration in Albuquerque are here to educate you on air purifiers.
Air purifiers are devices made up of a filter or multiple filters and a fan that sucks in and circulates air. Air purifiers refresh the air by pushing it through the filter, which catches pollutants, then releases the clean air back into the environment. Although air purifiers are not a necessity, there are many benefits to using one in your home.
- Allergies or Asthma- Because most household air purifiers contain HEPA filters, they can capture a higher percentage of pollutants that impact allergies and asthma, making breathing easier. Air purifiers can be especially helpful if you have a household with pets, as they also filter pet dander.
- Unpleasant Odors- There’s an endless list of things that can cause unpleasant odors in the home. Air purifiers with HEPA filters and activated carbon filters reduce the power of foul odors in the home.
- Sleep- Believe it or not, air purifiers can actually improve sleep! Indoor allergens and bacteria can impact your sinuses, making it harder to get good sleep. Research shows that cleaner air helps you sleep better.
- Illness- It’s easy to pass along sicknesses in a household, especially during cold and flu season. Air purifiers with HEPA filters can help mitigate the spread of airborne diseases by filtering bacteria and viruses out of the air.
When shopping for an air purifier, there are a few things to look for: Certifications, Room Size, Noise Level, etc. Once you find the right device, you will breathe clean air in no time!
