If you’re like most people, 90% of your time is spent indoors. A majority of that is spent in your Austin, TX, area home. Unfortunately, a typical home’s air is two to five times more polluted than the outdoor air. One way to combat indoor air pollution is with a REME air purifier for air purification. Read on to learn more about how an air purification system helps you stay healthy.
Reduce Fine Airborne Particles
According to the Cleveland Clinic, air purifiers remove about 57% of fine particles from a home’s air. If you have lung or heart disease, you may have a reduction in the severity and frequency of your symptoms. That’s because those particles cause widespread inflammation throughout the body. Children, the elderly and people with lung and heart disease who live in urban environments benefit the most from air purifiers.
Many people have allergies to dust, cockroaches, pet dander, pollen and mold. Products such as a REME air purifier inactivate these allergens and trap them. This lessens your allergy symptoms. Fewer allergy symptoms may also reduce your risk of sinus infections and asthma attacks. For the best results, pair the air purifier with frequent changes of your air filter.
Get Rid of Bacteria and Viruses
In the wintertime, the common cold, influenza and other bacterial and viral illnesses rapidly spread from one person to another. When you’re indoors for most of the winter, it’s easy to spread these infections from one member of your household to the next. An air purifier inactivates and traps most bacteria and viruses. They do this with UV-C lights, electrostatic filters and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters that are contained inside an air purification system. By operating an air purifier throughout the winter months of the year, you may experience fewer respiratory infections.
