If you’re in the market for an air purifier, the first think you should do is take a deep breath – if you can. There are a huge number of benefits to air purification systems, especially ones featuring HEPA filters. HEPA (which stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are able to remove a huge amount of air contaminants, making a huge difference in air quality.
Breathe easier with a HEPA filter air purifier from Alpine Air Products
It’s an unfortunate fact of modern living that the air we breathe is filled with a huge number of contaminants that can lead to lung irritation, aggravate conditions like asthma and allergies, and harm our long-term health. The problems can be even worse if you live in an area with large amounts of air pollution like we do in southern California, or if you share a home with pets or a smoker.
HEPA filters help you breathe easier by filtering out pollen, dirt, dust, mold spores, odors, pet dander, and other contaminants. You’ll be astounded both by the difference in the freshness of the air and the health benefits that you will experience over time as you become accustomed to breathing healthier, less contaminated air.
Health benefits of air purifiers with HEPA filters
Air quality is one of the single most important factors that influence our health. You can see this when you look at cities like Beijing that have atrocious levels of air pollution – people who live in these places suffer from an enormous number of respiratory diseases, and also suffer from other afflictions at much higher rates than people who live in cleaner areas.
Here in southern California, the air quality isn’t as bad as Beijing, but it’s not exactly fresh, clean air. We’re also not good at detecting contaminated air on our own, and being exposed to even small amounts of toxins, carcinogens, and pollutants can have a huge negative effect over the long term. That’s why air purification is so important. HEPA filters capture over 99% of particles in the air.
Allergies: Filtering allergens out of the air can obviously provide a huge quality of life improvement for those who suffer from allergies. Some people even find that making their home allergen-free actually reduces their symptoms when they’re in unfiltered environments.
Heart disease: Air pollution has been linked to heart disease, inflammation, and blood pressure issues. Removing pollution from the air you breathe in your home can reduce the risk of cardiovascular illnesses of all kinds.
Cold and flu: Colds, flus, and other illnesses that are spread in the air can be reduced by a high quality HEPA filter. Filtering out the moisture in the air that contains viruses and bacteria makes living with an ill person much less risky.
