Time to “air” out the truth about the air in your home. If you love being home like I do and find it cozy and comforting then it may surprise you to know that the air you are breathing is filled with toxic pollutants. I know, yuck! But here’s the honest truth. The air in your home can affect your lungs, your allergies and your immune system.
Common Air Pollutants
- Mold spores
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
One way to clean the air in your home is by opening the windows. Even 15 minutes of airing out your home can lower the pollutant level dramatically. Another method is by using an air purifier. There are numerous brands on the market so how do you know what to look for? Here are some key factors when looking for an air purifier.
- TRUE HEPA FILTER which is certified to remove 97% of particles
- CARBON FILTER traps fumes, gases and oders
- ULTRAVIOLET will kill bacteria and viruses
Say Hello to the Molekule
Molekule is one of the most recent purifiers to hit the market. It’s sleek design blends in with any room but here’s what makes the Molekule so dynamic. It’s patented PECO Air Purification Technology works at the molecular level to destroy pollutants. Unlike a HEPA filter which only traps pollutants. I like the sound of that! The Molekule takes in air from every angle and goes from pre-filter to the PECO filter resulting in pure air.
This is the Molekule Air Mini which I own and LOVE!! It’s great for smaller rooms and can be placed on furniture and counters. It also has a sleek design that blends into any room. It powers on and off right from the top which also has a few different air speeds. We have the Mini in our bedroom which calms my husband’s asthma. Did you know that asthma affects over 25 million people in the United States? Air purifiers dramatically reduce allergens and pollutants in the air helping them breath easier.
Say Hello to the Airdoctor Pro
So this guy is hanging out in our living room which is where we spend a lot of our time. It’s not too heavy and it is easy to move from room to room. What makes Airdoctor unique is the UltraHepa filter combined with a dual action Carbon/VOC filter. It’s system is 100% sealed so you can be assured that the air you breathe is pure. Another nice feature is the Automode which adjusts itself by detecting the quality of your air. So for example, the Airdoctor will detect a change in the air and automatically adjust itself to bring the air quality back to optimal. It is so sensitive that sometimes when we are cooking on the stove or using the oven the purifier will detect particles in the air from cooking and go to work!
In my own experience, air purifiers have helped me a great deal. I am very pleased with these brands however, do your research and you will find a product that meets your needs.
Cheers to your best life!
