When most people think about air pollution, they’re usually thinking the air outside.
However, pollutants like dirt and dust mites can also accumulate inside your home, irritating your lungs and contributing to respiratory conditions like allergies and asthma.
If you suffer from these types of breathing difficulties, you may benefit from the use of an air purifier with a HEPA air filter.
Here’s a quick look at what they are and how they work.
Conventional vacuum cleaners simply rearrange the particles they pick up, trapping some of them in a bag or filter. The remainder recirculate back into the room.
While you could improve upon this with either a finer filter or multiple filters, the machine would quickly clog up and cease to function.
This approach would also require a stronger motor to pull air through the filtration system, which would consume more energy, making it costlier to the consumer.
A HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter is specially designed to get around this problem and do a far better job at purifying the air in your home.
The HEPA filter consists of glass fibers arranged in a unique configuration, along with one or more outer filters to catch larger particles.
These fibers catch fine particles in different ways:
The HEPA air filter was originally developed to help workers in the nuclear industry clean up radioactive particles.
The three filtration mechanisms mentioned above are the reason they are so effective. Their ability to collect the fine dust produced by manufacturing processes makes them the perfect solution for homeowners with respiratory issues.
Particles from dust, mold, smoke, bacteria and pollen are often responsible for allergy flare-ups and asthma.
The basic purpose of an air purifier is to improve the quality of the air you breathe indoors. This is accomplished by preventing impurities and contaminants from continuing to circulate until they are eventually inhaled.
Along with the health benefits, there’s the added benefit of peace of mind, knowing that you have eradicated these impurities from the environment and created an allergen-free home.
Your family’s health is important and an air purifier with a HEPA filter is one of the best investments you can make to ensure that they are breathing clean air at home.
