It’s something that you probably don’t spend much time thinking about: the quality of the air you breathe inside your home or business. It may seem like a non-issue; perhaps you think you don’t need to treat your indoor air because you have an air filter on your A/C unit. That should do the job, right? Or, maybe you have a stand-alone air ionization unit or filtering fan running at all times. Surely that’s enough to ensure that the air you’re breathing while indoors is healthy and sustainable.
In this week’s blog post, we’re going to discuss why treating indoor air with a high-quality air purification system is head-and-shoulders above using traditional or outdated methods used to try to accomplish the same task. First of all, let’s consider the three main classes of air contaminants:
- Airborne particles (dust, debris)
- Microorganisms (bacteria, etc.)
- Gases (carbon monoxide, etc.)
A traditional air filter may use a High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) standard to filter out particles down to a size of 0.3 micron. Even though this is considered ‘ultra fine’ particle size (per the American Lung Association), it doesn’t cover the classification ‘super ultra fine’, which brings the size down to 0.007 micron. Alternatively, the HealthWay Deluxe air filter is effective at capturing super ultrafine particles, with an efficiency rate of 99.99%. The result is cleaner, more breathable air that you can feel confident knowing is healthier for you and your family, regardless of what time of year it is or how dirty the outside air is.
In addition to trapping particulate matter, the HealthWay Deluxe air filter contains a 7-stage prefilter that targets mold, fungi, microorganisms and select gases. So, instead of using a simple HEPA filter that you may have purchased from a home improvement store, you’re upping the ante and using a full-featured air filtration system that truly addresses the need to cleanse your air from all three potential contaminants: particles, microorganisms and gases. What’s more, the HealthWay Deluxe unit is portable and can be moved to wherever is most convenient within your home or business.
