Air filtration systems or air purifiers are two sides of the same coin—better indoor air quality. There’s nothing more important than the quality of breathing air in a home, especially for those with sensitive respiratory systems or asthma. The problem is, not many homeowners understand just what can be done about such problems.
Today we’ll be talking about the unique benefits that can be enjoyed from a professionally installed air filtration system or air purifier, specifically because so many people don’t know just why they’re so important. They can eliminate specific germs, mold spores, and anything that might cause an asthma attack while keeping out dust, pet dander, bugs, and fumes that can come from vehicles here in the city.
We’re not just writing this blog in hopes homeowners out there decide to purchase an air filtration system in the Bronx. We generally want homeowners to be more informed when it comes to their air quality.
If there are homeowners this holiday season who are holding any New Years parties, there might be one or two attendees with asthma or respiratory sensitivity. While asthma isn’t necessarily as bad a thing to have nowadays as it used to be, it can still be frustrating when staying at a home that has unclean air. An air purifier or air filter can provide unique benefits that will ease the burden on those with respiratory problems.
- Removing Asthma Triggers. Asthma attacks are triggered by the respiratory system detecting dust, dirt, carbon monoxide, cleaners, cooking smoke, or anything that can cause a minor disturbance or a cough in someone with a sensitive respiratory system. Air filtration systems remove the asthma triggers in a home, leading to a happier person and a healthier home.
- Prevention of Worse Conditions. We all know how the studies show an increased risk for lung disease in those who spend a lot of time breathing in tobacco smoke. It could even be someone outside of the home who smokes that causes the disturbance. Air filtration systems use a filter to siphon out such disturbances in the air that might increase the risk for lung cancer and any other respiratory ailments. This isn’t just for those with sensitive respiratory systems!
- Extraction of Asbestos Chemicals. In older homes, there might still be asbestos in walls, floors, insulation, or pipe cement, which can quickly become a problem in the development of Mesothelioma. A health concern like this can quickly degrade a family’s quality of life, which is why air filtration is incredibly important.
- Elimination of VOCs. VOCs are chemicals that can be consumed at a high vapor pressure while also being damaging to a person’s health. VOCs can be found in paints, aerosol sprays, stored fuels, and many auto products. The inhalation of VOCs can cause watery eyes, nausea, and respiratory problems. Homeowners can reduce the risk of leukemia and lymphoma by investing in an air filtration system to ween this chemical out of the environment.
