Nasal allergies affect more than 50 million people in the United States, including around 30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children. Additionally, approximately 25 million people in the United States suffer from asthma. That comes out to 1 in 12 people.
Unfortunately, these numbers are only continuing to grow, making indoor air quality a more important matter than ever.
Many people are unaware of the airborne dangers lurking within their home. The fact is, unless you’re taking the proper precautions, indoor air pollution could be making your allergies, asthma or other conditions even worse. Fortunately, there are simple solutions to improving your indoor air quality and making your home a healthier place to live. One of these is with an electronic air purifier. Here’s more about how this helpful device can keep you and your family healthy.
The Dangers of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Dust, smoke, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, viruses, chemicals, mites and more could all be lingering your indoor air and circulating through your home. Exposure to these airborne pollutants can aggravate symptoms for those with nasal allergies and asthma and can even lead to coughing, sneezing, fatigue, dizziness and irritation of the eyes, nose and throat.
The negative effects are especially critical for young children, elderly adults and those with compromised immune systems.
How an Electronic Air Cleaner Can Make Your Home Healthier
By separating potentially harmful airborne particles from the air circulating in your home, electronic air filters take dirty air and make it clean. As air cycles into these devices, particles are trapped and held tightly to the filter. An electrical charge is used to kill or inactivate any microorganisms, viruses or pathogens present by bursting their cell walls. This method effectively reduces the amount of pollutants in the air by about 95 percent.
