Pollution is an extremely large issue worldwide. However, not many people realize how pollutants can affect them in their own home. Even the slightest bit of unfiltered air can affect you and those around you in the house. Air purifiers are a great way to filter air in your home organically and effectively.
When it comes to air pollution, it is usually associated with vehicle emissions, clouds of debris over a large city, and wildfire smoke. Although these are all forms of air pollution, people fail to realize it can also form in their own homes. Indoor air pollution can be cooking smoke, chemical cleansers and disinfectants, pet dander, and microorganisms like bacteria and viruses.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor levels of pollutants may be two to five times – and occasionally more than 100 times – higher than outdoor levels.
Without air purification systems in place, the health impacts can come in various forms:
- Eye, nose, and throat irritation
- Aggravated asthma
- Irregular heartbeats
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Respiratory diseases
Air purification can help prevent these troubling outcomes from occurring over time. However, if air purification systems were to be introduced some changes could be noticed in a matter of months. As in:
- Reduced allergy symptoms
- Reduced nasal congestion
- Reduced asthma symptoms
With the right air purifier, it can help prevent life-altering health implications in the long run and improve your quality of life in a matter of months.
Several types of air purifiers are out there, which can be difficult when deciding what air purifier is best for your home.
Here are a few filters that are on the market today:
According to the EPA, a HEPA filter is a mechanical filter that can theoretically remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns. Theoretically, it sounds amazing, but smoke, odor, industrial emissions, and some viruses are smaller than 0.3 microns that HEPA filters can’t collect. HEPA filters can also be costly as the filter needs to be replaced every 6 months. If not replaced in time, it will be left clogged with micro-organisms and other toxic pollutants.
According to Airdog, TPA technology filters are an active filtration technology that generates a high-voltage electric field that destroys 99.9% of harmful particles, 99.9% of particles down to 0.0146 microns, and 99% of chemical toxins that are in the air. Unlike HEPA filters, TPA filters don’t require you to replace their filters, only a simple wash with soap and water. This not only ensures the filters never lose their integrity, but it also acts as a zero-waste feature.
An electrostatic precipitator uses an electrostatic charge to remove particles with high-voltage electrical energy, but maintenance can be exhausting. Due to the fact that the filter needs to be replaced 4 times a year and can release ozone which can lead to more harm than good for your lungs.
According to a review by Speciality Air, the X5 Air Purifier has 4.8 out of 5 star reviews including its power, features, and performance. It includes 5 filters which includes the electrostatic filter that eliminates bacteria, viruses, and mold on contact. This air purifier is controlled via remote or through the Airdog App.
