How to tell if you need an air purifier at your home?
According to statistics, people spend about 70% of their life indoors, and the average person inhales 12 cubic meters of air per day, while urban residents spend about 70%-90% of their time in various indoor environments every day. Therefore, air quality is critical to human health. We can see the clean floor, shiny furniture, transparent glass... but we cannot know whether the indoor air is clean or not. In fact, every living space may hide invisible air pollution. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) report, nearly half of the world's people are exposed to indoor air pollution.
1. Whether you are in the "hardest hit area" of smog
If you are in the north and find the local smog when you check the air pollution index in winter, then the existence of an air purifier seems to be necessary. In fact, even if you don't feel too uncomfortable after inhaling smog, it does not mean that you are "immune" to smog. Inhaling air with high concentrations of particulate matter for a long time will actually have many negative effects on the body. If you have elderly people and children with weakened immune systems in your home, then an air purifier is actually a good choice.
2. Whether you have pollen allergy
In fact, the air purifier can not only purify the inhalable particles and PM 2.5 in the air, but also remove dust, pollen and other particles. If you suffer from hay fever allergies, turning on an air purifier in the spring can effectively relieve your symptoms.
3. Whether the home is decorated
At present, activated carbon and other substances have been added to the filters in some household air purifiers, which can adsorb harmful gases in the air. If your home has just been renovated recently, you can use an air purifier to absorb formaldehyde and other gases in your home. In fact, it is not only a family that has just been renovated. Gases such as formaldehyde are actually difficult to volatilize and often exist in the home for several years, but with an air purifier, the air in the home will be restored.
