If you’ve ever walked through a crowded bar that allows smoking, it can be plainly obvious when the air is contaminated. But what some people don’t realize is that the air you breathe inside your own house can be contaminated as well, even if you don’t smoke.
This is one reason why air purification or filtration systems exist. Does your home need such a system? Here are some of the different scenarios where having an air purifier or filtration system installed could benefit you and your family.
You Have Pets at Home
Your dog or cat is one of your best friends, but your little furry companions can cause issues with the air that you breathe, especially if they regularly shed their fur. A family that allows pets to have the run of the place will likely have pet dander in just about every room.
Pet dander is an irritant that can make it harder to breathe freely, even if you don’t notice the problem. An air purification system can efficiently remove pet dander and any odors your pets creates from your indoor air supply.
Someone in the Home Has Asthma
If you or someone you love has asthma, you keep your indoor air supply as clean as possible. Irritants in the air that might not be a huge deal for the average person could be far worse for someone with asthma.
The last thing you want to have happen is to trigger an asthma attack for yourself or someone you love simply because your indoor air quality is so poor. Keep your air filtered and purified and any asthma patients inside your house will be able to breathe without worry.
You Live in a City With Outdoor Pollution
Do you live in an urban environment where lots of cars pass your home or apartment every day? Perhaps you live near some kind factory or manufacturing plant that puts pollutants into the air during normal operation?
You might be surprised to learn just how much of this outdoor pollution can make its way indoors. It can happen every time you open the front door to take the dog outside or when you open a window to let in a breeze.
An air filtration system will help keep your indoor air clean by removing outdoor pollution. Living in a big city does not mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your air supply.
You Have Children Who Get Sick Often
Do you have young children at home? Kids can sometimes get sick more frequently than adults, especially if they go to a school where a sick kid is coughing and sneezing all over the place.
If your kids bring these head colds home, your indoor air may have airborne viruses and bacteria to contend with. Pretty soon the entire family might be sniffling.
An air filtration system can’t guarantee your health, but it can make it less likely that you will breathe in an airborne virus from someone else’s cold. Even if you don’t have kids, an air purifier is a great way to fight back and protect yourself during flu season as well.
An air filtration system can remove many different kinds of pollutants from your home ranging from pet dander and odor to airborne viruses, bacteria, and dust. Outdoor contamination that sneak inside every time you open the front door will also be removed so you can breathe freely.
