Indoor air pollutants are harmful materials that infect your home, significantly diminishing your indoor air quality. The most common pollutants include dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, smoke, bacteria, and mold. But don’t fret; there are ways to counteract these pesky pollutants.
- Get down to the source: Find the source of the pollution and eliminate it. Or at least try to reduce its emissions.
- Ventilation: Open doors and windows to let some fresh air in (weather permitting). Furthermore, using exhaust fans in the bathroom and kitchen will also help remove contaminants.
- Air Cleaners: There are two different types of air cleaning devices: the first cleans the air in the whole house while the second cleans the air in a single room.
Choosing an air purifier may seem like a daunting task, but trust us; it’s not. Below you will find a few helpful tips to make your search a little easier.
Consider room size: Most air purifiers state the size of the room they clean. Know what you need and buy accordingly.
What type of pollutants are you dealing with? Different systems work best against different contaminants. Figure out what you need and find an air purifier that fits that need.
Easy maintenance: You don’t want to increase your housework so find a system that requires little maintenance. Though you have to remember that no matter what system you choose, it will require some level of annual maintenance.
Noise, noise, and did we mention noise? If this unit is to be used in your bedroom, consider purchasing an air purifier that is designed to operate quietly.
Air changes per hour: The more changes per hour, the better your indoor air quality.
Filters: How often do they need to be replaced? How much do they cost? Remember, not all filters are created equal.
Energy efficiency: Check the energy consumption for each unit.
Warranty: This one is a no brainer. Find a unit that not only fits your needs, but also has a good warranty.
The indoor air quality of your home is nothing to play around with. Considering that most people spend 90 percent of their time indoors, breathing an estimated 2,300 gallons of air every day, indoor air can be a key factor in your quality of life. Indoor air pollution can aggravate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments. So get down to business and ensure that your family is properly protected.
