The EPA estimates that people spend about 90% of their time indoors, where the concentration of some pollutants is 2-5 greater than it is outdoors. This is a clear issue, but is it an issue that an air purifier can solve? If you select the proper model, it can definitely help. Here are four reasons why an air purifier may be a worthy investment for your home.
Less Dust Accumulation
Air purifiers, specifically those with HEPA filters, trap airborne particles like pollen, skin cells, hair, pest debris and dust mites. After installing your own air purifier, you can expect less dust accumulation throughout your home, reducing your time spent tidying up throughout the week.
We’re in peak allergy season right now. If you are suffering from allergies or asthma, there is a chance that an air purifier could help alleviate some of your symptoms. Simply removing pollen, mold, and pet dander from the air can have a significant effect, especially during the spring and summer months.
Air purifiers won’t actively make your home smell better, but they can help remove pesky odors from things like cooking, garage mold or tobacco. This can help your home smell more fresh without relying on alternative methods like candles that are not without their long-term risks.
Trap Bacteria and Viruses
Air purifiers are great at protecting against bacteria and virus particles that could exist throughout your home at any given time. However, it’s worth noting that lower-level purifiers won’t have as strong of an effect on such particles. For maximum protection, you will need to seek out specific air purifier models with ultraviolet light that destroys the DNA of harmful viruses.
