In the fall and winter, we spend more time indoors. Our homes, schools and office buildings today are increasingly well insulated. A good thing of course, but unfortunately not for air quality because there is little air flow through this insulation. It has been shown that indoor air quality can be up to 30 times worse than outdoor air. This can lead to various health problems, such as headaches, shortness of breath, asthma, hay fever and bronchitis. But should you sit next to the open window all day? Certainly not, for clean air you really don't need to be cold.
We list the most important benefits of clean air for you here:
1. Boost your health and mood
Pure air helps us to improve our blood pressure and heart rate, digest food effectively and strengthen the immune system. Also, the release of serotonin is affected by the amount of oxygen you have in your blood. Serotonin promotes a sense of happiness and well-being, so the fresher air you have, the better your mood.
2. Get rid of aerosols
Aerosols are small suspended particles that can circulate in the air indoors. These aerosols can contain the coronavirus, for example. To reduce the number of germs and aerosols in the air and thus prevent infections, it is important to purify your indoor air with an air purifier, or ventilate properly three to four times a day for at least 10 minutes.
3. Higher productivity
Indoor spaces can harbor viruses, dust mites, bacteria and perhaps even mold. These have a negative impact on your health and productivity. Your body has to work harder to get enough oxygen in and symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and lack of concentration are the result. With an air purifier, you can easily improve the air at home, in the office or in any other space, and consequently boost your productivity.
Air purifier or open window?
We now know the main benefits of clean air, but how do you achieve this in indoor spaces? Opening a window is obviously a good idea, but did you know that with little wind and a small temperature difference between inside and outside, ventilation is hardly possible? Moreover, this is exactly how pollen and particulate matter come into the room. And how about in an office building, school or healthcare facility where the windows are small or sometimes cannot even be opened? An air purifier, with a certified filter system that immediately renders viruses and other pathogens, offers a solution. It also filters gases, pollen and dust from the air, then releases the purified air back into the room. The result is healthier air, more oxygen and fewer allergic reactions or viral infections.
Air purifier for any room
If you think that an air purifier does not match the interior of your room, you are wrong. Take a look here, or request more information without any obligation.
