During the cold winter months, you stay cozy inside by sealing off your Macungie, PA, home from the icy outdoor temperatures. An unintended consequence of keeping the winter air out is a decline in your indoor air quality. Improving it with an air purifier boosts your energy and immune system while alleviating respiratory symptoms from asthma and allergies.
Improving Energy and Immunity
Poor indoor air quality can cause symptoms like headaches or fatigue even if you have no underlying respiratory conditions. Continual exposure to dust and other allergens may even increase your risk of developing new allergies. When your body puts additional energy into breathing, you can end up with a depleted immune system and decreased energy.
Reducing Toxins and Allergens
Common household particles that can aggravate allergies or asthma include pet dander, dust mites and buildup from household cleaners or chemicals. As these contaminants circulate continuously through the air, they cause sneezing, watery eyes, congestion and labored breathing. Filter troublesome particles with an air purifier to improve your indoor air quality and create a more comfortable and healthful environment for household members suffering from these conditions.
Benefits of Air Purifiers
Air purifiers use filtration and ionization technology to collect or destroy even tiny particles, including many viruses and pathogens. The filtration element catches larger particles of dust or pet dander while an electronic air cleaner removes smaller contaminants. Air cleaners put a positive charge on offending particles, which are then attracted to a negatively charged collection plate. Whole-house air cleaners are simple to maintain and operate quietly.
