If you want to have the best air possible in your home, you can invest in an air purifier. Having an air filter will allow it to remove pollutants and contaminants from the air. These contaminants can include pollen, dust, pet dander, and even cigarette smoke. If you or a family member suffers from allergies or asthma, these pollutants can irritate the symptoms even more, and result in breathing issues.
Air contaminants are usually measured in terms of microns. HEPA purifiers have been tested and confirmed to have the ability to remove air contaminants larger than 0.3 microns at a success rate of 99.9 percent. Air contaminants that are very likely to be larger than 0.3 microns include things like asbestos, pet dander, pollen, cigarette smoke, and certain kinds of dust. HEPA purifiers must be installed in a ventilation system and require a lot of power to operate. Fortunately, small air purifiers that can simply be plugged into an outlet can also proved effectiveness at removing irritants from the air.
