As we go into the fall and winter seasons, the quality of the air in your home becomes more and more important. Not only do you spend more time inside, the risk of getting sick increases substantially as well. Installing an air purifier can increase air quality in your home, resulting in a higher quality of life and improved health. Here are 5 important health benefits of air purifiers!
1. Relief from Allergens
If you suffer from indoor allergies such as dust or pet dander, you know how much worse those allergies can get when you're stuck inside for months at a time. Installing an air purifier from Master Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can actually reduce the number of allergens in the air and lessen your symptoms.
2. Filter Out Mold Spores
One of the most important health benefits of air purifiers is filtering out mold spores. Mold can aggravate existing respiratory issue, such as asthma and chronic sinusitis. It can also cause a number of issues, including:
- Lung Irritation
If you have a compromised immune system, mold is exceptionally dangerous for your respiratory health.
3. Reduce Unwanted Odors
Air purifiers work to reduce and remove unwanted odors from your home. This includes smells from your kitchen, bathroom, and smoking as well as any pet odors. Eliminating these odors helps you enjoy your home more and get better sleep at night.
4. Lower Risks of Second-Hand Smoke
Because air purifiers find and attack unwanted microbial creatures and particles in the air, they are ideal for lowering the health risks associated with second-hand smoke. An air purifier can decrease the amount of smoke in the air, on your clothing and on other surfaces in your home.
5. Viruses & Bacteria
Viruses and Bacteria stick around in your home before, during, and after a member of your family gets sick. You can protect you and your family from colds, viral infections and the flue by installing an air purifier in your home. Utilizing an air purifier can prevent your family from getting sick, lessen the severeness of illness if they do get sick, and help stop the spread of airborne bacteria and viruses.
Other Health Benefits of Air Purifiers
In addition to all of the health benefits above, air purifiers help decrease the number and severity of sore throats, headaches and other sinus issues. If you have a respiratory problem of any kind, you can benefit from installing an air purifier in your home!
