When it comes to pollution, most people worry about the air quality of the city they live in. They may spend time learning about outdoor emissions from vehicles and industries in their area. But did you know that according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air we breathe inside our own homes is an average of two to five times more polluted than the air outside, and in some cases far more than that?

It’s important to know that, while people with allergies and asthma may benefit significantly from indoor air purifiers, these purifiers are not just for those with respiratory disorders. They can significantly benefit the respiratory health of all of us by removing impurities from our indoor environments.

How Could My Family Benefit From an Air Purifier?

Any family can improve their general health with an indoor air purifier.

If you have a pet-friendly home with multiple animal friends, you might notice that your home isn’t exactly people-friendly. Pet odors, dander, fur, and other allergens are brought into your home through your furry family members. Air purifiers help to trap these impurities before they settle into your environment.

Air purifiers also help to rid your home environment of VOC’s, or Volatile Organic Chemicals, that are emitted from furnishings, carpets, paint, and cleansers. Many of these substances are toxic to humans with lengthy exposures.

An air purifier removes allergens like pollen, dust, and mold to assist those with environmental allergies and asthma, limiting the suffering of these individuals from substances inside their own homes.

An air purifier can lessen the amount of dusting that you have to do, especially in high traffic areas. Most air purifiers also remove odors from smoking and cooking that would otherwise linger in your home, many having the capability to remove particles so small that they effectively eliminate bacteria and viruses, as well as pollen and mold spores.

Improvements in Modern Air Purifiers

If it’s been a while since you’ve looked at air purifiers, you may be pleasantly surprised. These are not the heavy, loud, clunky machines of our childhoods, puffing away in a corner. Today’s air purifiers are ergonomically designed and lightweight. They are quiet and discreet, and often designed to blend in seamlessly with your decor. One company even offers an excellent quality air purifier that features mood lighting and a decorative screen with classic paintings from famous artists. It can be hung on the wall like lovely artwork, all while it cleans the air your family breathes.

New air purifiers can come in your choice of simplicity and ease of function for a “set it and forget it,” type model. Or for the tech-savvy, you can purchase air purifiers with many modes and functions that you can control from anywhere with your smartphone or tablet.

No matter which style you prefer, you will find HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters, and often carbon filters as well, to ensure that all air particles large and small are removed from your indoor environment, and all while your air purifier works so quietly that no one will know it’s there!
