Is the air in your home clean? Why a HEPA Purifier Could Help.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, airborne pollutants can be two to five times higher indoors than outdoors. This is a big deal, as research reveals that people spend 90% of their time indoors - and indoor air quality (IAQ) has been proven to directly influence human health, productivity and wellness. 

Why is breathing clean air important?

Exposure to breathing in minuscule particles in the air is not healthy. These can cause a variety of short-term allergic reactions where eye, nose and throat irritation lead to symptoms like coughing, sneezing or a runny nose - and sometimes shortness of breath. In serious cases, ongoing exposure to
small airborne particles can affect lung function and worsen medical conditions such as asthma and heart disease.

What are common fine particles found in our indoor air?

Particle pollution — known as particulate matter (PM) — is made up of tiny particles, either solid or liquid, that are suspended in the air. These include pet dander, dust and dust mites, pollen and spores, and other common allergens found indoors. Particulate matter may also include pollutants from vehicle exhaust, smoke, and chemical fumes and can be far worse than the pollution outside.

Can you clean the air in your home or office?

You can improve air quality in your home, or office, by lowering humidity, increasing ventilation and reducing dust by vacuuming regularly. You can also successfully rid your air of 99.97% of common pollutants by using a Crystal Air Turbo HEPA Led Air Purifier. Using a quality HEPA filter can help trap a wide range of pollutants and create a cleaner, healthier indoor environment.

What is a HEPA filter?

HEPA is an acronym for "efficiency particulate air”. A HEPA filter works by cycling polluted air through multiple filters of a pleated mechanical air filter and releasing clean air back into the room. This type of air filter can remove at least 99.97% any airborne particles with a size greater than 0.3 microns (µm). 

Benefits of using a HEPA filter include:

  • They lighten allergen load in the air.
  • They can filter certain harmful chemicals.
  • They help remove dust and mould spores from the air.
  • They have been proven to reduce certain airborne disease.

What makes Crystal Air’s Turbo HEPA Led Air Purifier so effective?

It has a 5-stage filtration system with True HEPA filter, activated carbon filter, and germicidal UV-C defence technology that effectively removes allergens, dust, smoke, pet dander, and germs.
