Indoor air is made up of Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon and Carbon Dioxide, as well as airborne particles and pollutants which may harm your health, trigger asthma attacks or aggravate allergies. Our lungs naturally filter the air; however, your lungs alone cannot always protect you from the smaller, potentially hazardous particles contained in your indoor air. Adding an air purifier to your environment can be your best defense against these airborne particles, filtering the air you breathe indoors. Understanding how an air purifier may be beneficial to your health can be the first step toward improving your indoor air and breathing easier.
Airborne particulate matter is a combination of solid particles and liquid droplets. Measured in microns—one millionth of a meter (10-6 meters)—particles visible to the human eye are 50 microns or larger, with a single human hair measuring 100 microns. Particulate matter which may trigger allergy symptoms or other health problems measures 10 microns or smaller and are referred to as respiratory particulates. These smaller particles tend to stay suspended in the air longer and may be inhaled deep into the respiratory system, creating potential health issues. These smaller particles can be best removed by an air purifier with HEPA style filtration.
The American Lung Association adds to this, recommending the most effective technology to safely remove these particles is with filtration. HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) style filtration is noted to be the most effective air purifier technology on the market. Every Alen Air Purifier uses HEPA style filters, removing up to 99% of airborne particles .3 microns or larger from the air you breathe. Along with HEPA style filtration, an Alen Air Purifier cleans the air you breathe, protecting you from contaminants and pollutants.
