Improve Indoor Air Quality with a HEPA Home Air Purifier
In the Face of COVID-19, Home Air Quality is More Important than Ever
As a result of COVID-19, we’re spending more time in our homes than ever before, and home air quality is a major concern. While there’s not yet any conclusive evidence that a HEPA air purifier can reduce the risk of contracting coronavirus, there are still important reasons for consumers to consider using a home air filtration system.
But how effective are air purifiers, and what should consumers look for when choosing one? Below, we’ll discuss what distinguishes HEPA air purifiers as the superior choice for your customers, along with how a home air purifier can improve indoor air quality while consumers are confined to their homes.
HEPA Air Purifiers
First, it’s important to acknowledge that no air purifier currently on the market has been proven to reduce the risk for spreading or contracting coronavirus. There’s still a lot that we don’t understand about how COVID-19 is spread, and we can’t draw any conclusions about how a HEPA air purifier might reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission.
But there are other reasons to consider an air purifier to improve indoor air quality. According to the EPA, indoor levels of air pollutants are often up to 5 times higher than outdoor levels. And with all of us spending so much time inside, it’s important to keep the air we’re breathing as clean and healthy as possible. Indoor air pollutants can negatively impact our health, both in the short term and over the long term.
When it comes to selecting an air purifier, consumers should choose an air filtration system with a true HEPA filter. A HEPA filter can capture up to 99.97% of particulate matter measuring 0.3 microns in size, and do an even better job at filtering larger particles. This includes many of the indoor air pollutants that can contribute to health problems, such as bacteria, pollen, mold spores, and pet dander.
A Step Up from HEPA Air Filters
HEPA air purifiers operate by pulling air into the machine with a fan. While this approach can be effective, it’s incapable of filtering all of the air in a given room.
Sharp offers a home air purifier which takes HEPA filtration a step further. The Sharp True HEPA AIr Purifier with Plasmacluster® Ion Technology works by actively dispersing positive and negative ions into the air, which then attach to pollutants and break them down. As the pollutants are destroyed, the ions neutralize their charge and return to the air as water vapor. This active approach to air filtration not only reaches all corners of the room — it also cuts down on indoor odors.
