8 Benefits of an Air Purifier | Your Elegant Bar

August 08, 2021 4 min read

It's no surprise that poor air quality has been a significant factor when dictating optimal living conditions. Not many people are aware that indoor air can be five times as polluted and congested as the outdoor air you breathe on the way to work.

The difficulty often lies in air circulation that is lacking in many residences or buildings. This is most common in smaller homes like condominiums and apartments with fewer windows and doors. Thus, many people are slowly adding air purifiers into their non-negotiables when renting furnished homes or something they add to their appliances list. 

Why Should I Get an Air Purifier?

It's not only a wise choice to invest in a good air purifier; it's also a healthy one. Prioritizing respiratory health doesn't mean just staying indoors and avoiding bumper-to-bumper traffic to avoid the carbon monoxide from cars. Something as simple as an air purifier is a solid solution that can compound over time. Air purifiers serve multiple benefits to home living and overall wellness, and here's why:

1. Captures and Removes Dust

Most good-quality air purifiers feature a HEPA filter designed to trap airborne particles. These are often made off the outdoor particles brought indoors when you come from school, work, or the gym. These include pollen, mold spores, dust mites, hair, pet dander, and pest debris. 

Another type of air purifier that is good for getting rid of dust is called anionizer. It's meant to get pollutants to fall to the floor via an electrical charge, making vacuuming dirt and dust more convenient. However, it's not the most cost-effective way to collect and rid your space of dust. 

2. Reasonable Control of Allergens and Asthma

Allergy season is no fun when the more remarkable seasons start knocking on your door, mainly because you also welcome allergies and asthma attacks. 

Since they're usually triggered by airborne particles like mold, pollen, bacteria, and pet dander, controlling air circulation in indoor spaces like office buildings, restaurants, condo complexes are necessary to combat allergy season. A good quality air purifier can help lessen the number of allergens and asthma-inducing particulates. 

3. A Pet Owner's Best Friend

Air purifiers are perfect for anyone who owns a dog or cat or any furry creature in their home. Since pet dander is one of the particles that accumulate in the air, a powerful air purifier can freshen up your space and reduce allergen levels for those who like to have guests. 

This is an optimal way to promote responsible pet ownership while also prioritizing the comfort of your own home for your loved ones.

4. Gets Rid of Stenches

Those who enjoy cooking and meal prep will want to invest in a good air purifier since the smell of dishes lingers and builds up over time inside the house. 

Air purifiers have activated carbon filters that are equipped to reduce and ax out odor-causing molecules. It will not only help you save money from air fresheners but will also create a fresh-smelling house, especially for tiny homeowners. 

5. Complements Interior Design

Those particular about their home's aesthetics tend to prefer appliances that blend with their furniture. Besides, no one wants a bulky device just splayed in the corner of a beautifully curated space. 

Many showrooms for rental homes have popularized air purifier devices seamlessly designed and can blend in living rooms, bedrooms, and guest rooms. White and minimalist designs that ensure high-quality purifying are still achievable; check this unit out for your own home.

6. Reduces the Spread of Airborne Diseases

Airborne diseases are spread through tiny pathogens floating around in the air. When one family member catches the flu, it's not uncommon for the rest of them to get sick as well. This happens because everyone is breathing and exhaling that same infected air. Thus, having air purifiers can help HEPA filters capture bacteria and viruses, which can alleviate stress during cold or flu season. 

This is particularly helpful when surrounded by contagious housemates all day long at home or classmates at school. Air purifiers also play a significant role in providing comfort to those who live with older adults, children, or anyone who has a weakened immune system. 

Airborne disease prevention starts at home: make sure your house is free from airborne contaminants and invest in an excellent air purifier so that there's no chance of spreading infection among those most vulnerable.

7. Boosts Sleep Quality

A loud air conditioning unit is usually a pro for many people since the buzzing noise from the unit helps put people to sleep easily. Oddly enough, air purifiers have the same effect on people's circadian rhythms and sleep quality. 

Aside from a soothing buzzing noise that probably has something to do with ASMR, air purifiers help reduce constant nose congestion, watery eyes, and frequent sneezing once the room gets too cold for sleep. Having an air purifier with a high-quality HEPA filter in your room will give you cleaner and cooler air for a better night's sleep.

8. Eliminates Harmful Gases

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is colorless and odorless but is emitted from building materials like rocks, soil, and granite. This can easily seep into flooring and walls, which then leak into cracks, and when constantly inhaled, may be cancerous and lead to damaging the cell linings of the lungs.

By investing in air purifiers with HEPA and activated carbon filters, you're protecting your health from radon's harmful effects. Air purifiers will make it more efficient to trap radon particles and gas, especially in large commercial spaces like hospitals, office buildings, and event rooms.
