Now more than ever do we know that the quality of the air we breathe, matters. At JD’s, we want our customers to know the benefits of having an Air Purification System in their home, and how it can change their lives. Below are 12 reasons why you should have an air purification system in your home.
You’re healthy, and want to stay that way.
If you are a healthy human, you will likely want to stay that way. Not many homeowners know the risks that come with airborne pollutants and chemicals or the risks that come with them from long-term exposure. And did you know that only a quarter of the 82,000 chemicals in use in the U.S. have ever been tested in regards to the effects they might have on humans? And with COVID-19 making its appearance in 2020, now more than ever the quality of the air we breathe matters.
You live in an enclosed space
Let us point out the obvious, you live in a home or enclosed area. With that comes a variety of gases, chemicals, debris, dust, and other pollutants that cycle through the air in our homes. Based on findings from the EPA (The Environmental Protection Agency), it was found that our homes can potentially have more pollutants than even the outdoors.
If you are pregnant, have a new baby, or children in your home
Our children are the most precious things to us within our home, and of course, we want to keep them happy, safe, and most importantly healthy. To do that we have to know where illness and disease begin. Many researchers, and medical professionals alike believe that disease is an ongoing evolution beginning from the moment we are born, we are exposed to the outside elements as well as the pollutants that inhabit it.
If you are over the age of 60 or suffer from autoimmunity
Those who fall into the senior citizen category, as well as those who suffer from autoimmune disorders, are much like children, babies, and pregnant women in the way that clean, healthy air is essential to good health. Much like eating a well-balanced diet, and drinking plenty of water. Having access to clean, pure air within your home is essential for long happy life.
If you have respiratory issues such as asthma, or allergies
Those who suffer from respiratory issues such as asthma or allergies will naturally benefit from having clean air circulating through the home. Many issues with respiratory illness stem from the quality of the air we breathe. The only proven system is a HEPA filtration system which can remove 99.97% of airborne particles and harmful airborne chemicals.
Your outside elements are against you
Do you live near a construction site, near a major road, or an industrial site? If yes, you can benefit from having an air purification system installed in your home. Emissions from traffic or factories release small particles, gases, and chemicals into the air and then into your body, lungs, and tissues. Research states that with short-term exposure to these chemicals individuals are at an increased risk for heart conditions. And with prolonged, long term exposure to these chemicals, your life expectancy is significantly reduced by up to 3 years.
Either you don’t like cleaning or you do
If you find that you aren’t the best house-keeper, dust could be your worst enemy. Having cleaner air helps to reduce the amount of dust, debris, and dander that is circulated through your home. If too much dust builds within your home it can trap mold, viruses, bacteria, and cause unsavory odors. And even if you are a pristine house-keeper your indoor air quality can still be compromised. That is because in many of our home cleaning products are chemicals that ‘off-gas’ small amounts of those chemicals. And because these are airborne particles, they cannot just be wiped or dusted away.
If you suffer from MCS
MCS stands for multiple chemical sensitivities, and if you suffer from this, you know how important the quality of the air you breathe is. Our air purification system is here to help you live and breathe a happy healthy life.
You have pets
We all love our fur babies, but they are known to shed dust and pet dander throughout our homes. However, along with this, our pets are much like our children in the way that they are more susceptible to smells, chemicals, toxins, dust, and other airborne pollutants. Keep your air clean for all your family members!
Using art materials
Whether you are a professional or a beginner, anyone within your household that uses art materials such as paint and other materials are at an increased risk of inhaling airborne toxins and carcinogens. When your home doesn’t receive an adequate amount of fresh air, these chemicals can become harmful to your overall well-being.
If you have an attached garage
If you live in a home with an attached garage space, it’s important that you remember that it’s what’s inside that matters. Meaning, inside your garage, you likely have pollutants from your vehicles, fuel on the ground, other chemicals stored, fertilizers and treatments, pesticides, and many other chemical pollutants. These pollutants put your family at risk for potentially hazardous health conditions if not managed properly.
If there is a fireplace or wood-burning stove in your home
While we all love a beautiful fire, pollutants from wood smoke can cause serious indoor air quality issues. Along with issues found inside your home, fireplaces can cause breathing problems as well.
