Health Benefits of Clean Air Using Air Purifiers

Oct 11, 2007
It's sad, but true. The air we breathe is dirty and getting dirtier. Even the air in our homes can be hazardous to our health. It has been estimated that the air inside of the average American home is at leas five times more polluted than the air outside - even in the most metropolitan area!

As our homes become more and more energy efficient, we have not only succeeded in making our homes air tight t save energy costs, but have also succeeded in blocking any natural ventilation to allow chemicals, pet dander, dust and other household allergens and pollutants to escape. Its rare these days for anyone to simply throw open the windows and "air out the house" on a regular basis. Little did we realize how beneficial that simple season changing activity was in the past.

Today's family suffers much more bouts of cold, flu, bronchitis, pneumonia and other upper respiratory problems, not to mention an increased rate in asthma and allergies. Why? The simple answer may be that the air we breathe both inside and outside of our homes is s full of allergens and pollutants that our bodies simply can not free itself of these angers and is paying the ultimate price: the ability to breathe easy.

Some of the most dangerous pollutant culprits which are causing a variety of these respiratory afflictions among our families include:

Household Odors and Gases:
Kitty litter dust, tobacco smoke, indoor pesticides and aerosols, among others can all cause mild to serious breathing problems when exposure is commonplace.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's):
Found in a wide variety of household products including paint, varnish, cleaning supplies, disinfectants, glues and adhesives in carpeting and furniture. Ingredients such as benzene, chloride, formaldehyde, and ethylene can all irritate the eyes, nose, throat and airways. Severe chronic health conditions such as damage to the nervous system may result in some people.

Microorganisms:
Antigens, pathogens, bacteria, mold and viruses can all be found in the air we breathe and make us sick.

So, now that you understand the importance of clean air, what's the best way to combat the effects of modern-day pollutants? The best thing, experts agree, is to install a good quality air purifier in your home and office to help strip these dangerous pollutants from your living and working areas. Good ventilation is also recommended with a regular airing out of your home.
