An air purifier removes airborne contaminants from a specific room or area. Since we spend a lot of time in our homes, and since the air inside doesn’t get changed out all that often, a lot of our lives are spent breathing stale and sometimes contaminated air. There are many potential benefits to using a purifier in your home.
4 Big Benefits of Using an Air Purifier
1. Better Air Quality
This, of course, is the main benefit of a purifier: improved indoor air quality. The air inside our homes can often be polluted by a variety of sources, including tobacco smoke, cleaning products, fragrances, and dust.
We bring in pollution on our shoes, and even new electronics, rugs, and furniture can “off-gas” for weeks or even months, releasing chemicals into the air that no one should be breathing in a confined space. A purifier can help to remove these contaminants from the air, making it cleaner and healthier to breathe.
2. Reduce Physical Suffering
Another benefit of a purifier is that it can help to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms. Many people suffer from allergies or asthma triggered by dust, mold, pet dander, and other common indoor pollutants. A purifier can help to remove these allergens from the air, which can reduce symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and difficulty breathing.
A purifier can also help to reduce the risk of respiratory infections and the length of time you suffer from one. The air in our homes can harbor viruses, allowing respiratory infections such as the common cold or flu to spread quickly from family member to family member, even if everyone is careful to wash hands. A purifier can help to remove these contaminants from the air, reducing the risk of infection. And even if someone does fall ill, their over-taxed respiratory system won’t also have to deal with so many pollutants and allergens while trying to recover.
3. Better Smell and Feel
In addition to the health benefits, a purifier can improve the overall air quality in your home. Cleaner air can make your home feel fresher and more comfortable. A purifier also removes unwanted odors, including those produced by cooking, smoking, and even our beloved pets.
4. Reduced Chemical Use
A quality purifier can reduce the need to use chemical cleaning products to keep things safe and clean. It can also reduce the need (or desire) for smelly, chemical-laced room deodorizing products, which are not healthy to be breathing regularly.
Purifiers improve indoor air quality, reduce allergy and asthma symptoms, reduce the risk of respiratory infections, improve overall air quality, and have potential environmental benefits. If you are concerned about the air quality in your home, or if you or someone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma, a purifier may be a good investment.
