Whole House HEPA Filtration
The Best Air Purifier for Health Benefits Is HEPA
The air inside a typical home is up to 5 times dirtier than the air outside! The same insulation and seals that keep warm or cold air inside your home, also keep in chemicals and particulates. These materials can emanate from a number of household products and cleaners found throughout the home.
Everyone has a physical tolerance level for airborne chemicals and particulates. Some people have a higher tolerance than others for dirty air, but it affects everyone. Children whose respiratory system is still developing are at greater risk of asthma or allergies if they are exposed to many airborne contaminants. Increased levels of contaminants in the air can even affect the well-being of fully developed, healthy adults. The higher the level of contaminants in the air, the quicker a person can reach their tolerance level. Then the contaminants could start to damage their respiratory system and their general health.
The key is to reduce the amount of contaminants taken into the body. This can be done by reducing the number of particles in the air. HEPA filtration is a standard developed by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and is used to remove microscopic particles from the air. HEPA filtration in the home will reduce the number of contaminants in the home. The higher airflow of the HEPA filtration system, the quicker the levels will drop.
Significant reduction of contaminants in the home can help the body recover from constant exposure to contaminants outside the home. We like to say this reduction in the stress to our respiratory system can be compared to a good nights sleep for a tired athlete.
