How to Improve Air Quality
While it may be difﬁcult to avoid toxins and other air pollutants while out running errands and attending work, you can control the air quality of your own home and truly make your place a sanctuary. If you have asthma or some other health condition, then it is imperative that you work hard to improve the air quality. However even if you’re not experiencing any symptoms, you can prevent any future problems and simply enjoy the pleasant smell and revitalising feeling that comes with breathing in fresh clean air.
To improve your air quality inside your home, you can focus on several options:
An air puriﬁer is a marvelous and ingenious device that can be either a small unit like fan, or it can be an industrial sized one around the size of an air conditioner. These puriﬁers work by ﬁltering out all of the dander, mold spores, pollen, and more that can cause problems.
Additionally, they also trap harmful particles in the air from chemicals, cigarettes, paint, and more!
If you are living in a warmer climate, or an area close to water, then having a dehumidiﬁer can dramatically improve
your home. Even if you have a ceiling fan and you work hard to circulate air, having moisture present in your home
can cause structural problems, damage your furniture and belongings, destroy wallpaper and paint, and allow harmful molds to multiply.
There are several different ways in which puriﬁers essentially ﬁlter the air. Some use thermodynamic sterilisation which uses convection to incinerate the toxins and biological pollutants. Others use ultraviolet irradiation from UV lamps, and (possibly the most common and easiest to maintain) even more use HEPA ﬁlters.
A fan plays a big role in the quality of the air because it helps prevent accumulation and also keeps air ﬂ owing for
a more pleasant living space. Ceiling fans are essential as are exhaust fans (ventilating fans). Exhaust fans, like the ones commonly found in bathrooms and over kitchen stoves, work by pulling the air out of the space and preventing toxins and pollutants from being dispersed throughout the air in the house.
If you have children, pets, or health problems, then the air in your home can be causing serious damage to your body. Improper air ventilation is a common issue that homeowners deal with. However, very few of them realise the extent to which the quality of the air can affect a person. From headaches and persistent coughs, to long term problems such as asthma and lung disease, there is proven evidence to show that toxins and biological pollutants cause serious problems and can be exponentially worse in homes with poor air circulation and ventilation.
To keep you and your family safe, and to signiﬁcantly improve your quality of life within your own home, utilise a combination of fans, air puriﬁers, and dehumidiﬁers to truly create a home that you can be safe and comfortable in!
