Breathe Right

Air quality is one of the most important factors when it comes to overall good health. But we can’t rely on our nose alone, which is why it’s now more important than ever to use a quality air purifier.

Regular exercise helps keep us healthy. A well-balanced diet is critical, too. However, all those good efforts can be largely undone based on the air we breathe. Undetectable air pollution comes in many forms from carpets, furniture, even the building materials that construct our homes. Every day our bodies are exposed to small amounts of toxins, carcinogens and organic pollutants, and over the course of our lives this can have a very harmful effect, leading to an increased risk of serious disease. The answer is a steady, everyday solution with the same consistency. When choosing an air purifier, make sure you’re not just getting a dust filter. The best options feature HEPA, which removes 99.7% of particles sized 0.3 micron or less. Carbon filtration is best if you’ve got allergies, pets or like to cook up a storm regularly. Determine the square footage of the area you’d like to cover before committing and remember that this is an investment in a healthier, longer life for you and your family.
