Discover 5 Ways An Air Purifier Can Boost Your Happiness
Diana Amaya @ Feb 23, 2022
It’s hard to clean what you can’t see, and unfortunately (or fortunately) we can’t see the microscopic pollutants, allergens, molds, and fine particulate matter (PM2.5) floating in our air. These tiny trouble-makers can affect our breathing, disturb our sleep habits, and affect our health while ongoing issues like carbon pollution and wildfires help them multiply. Conversely, capturing these pollutants and particles improves air quality, and improved air quality is linked to improved mood and overall wellness.
Life is so much better when we can focus on what makes us happy. And while the air we breathe affects many facets of our lives, most of us would rather relegate this involuntary function to the back of our brains and focus on other things. That’s why we made Happi Air Purifiers: to enhance your everyday life without getting in the way.
Health experts are continually researching short and long term effects of particulate matter exposure in communities around the world, and thanks to the EPA, their trusty scientists can measure air quality and help us understand when we’re at risk. We too have spent thousands of hours researching, developing, and testing our methodology in order to make the most affordable, high-quality, true HEPA air purifier out there.
Relieve Symptoms From Asthma and Allergies:
Most Americans experience symptoms as a reaction from one or more household allergens, and allergic conditions are one of the most common health issues affecting children in the US. With homes becoming increasingly insulated thanks to updates in residential construction and a global pandemic driving activities and work into the confines of our home, it has never been more important to mitigate the effects of indoor allergens and pollutants. The good news is that air purifiers are an excellent tool for combating these pesky allergens and protecting our health.
If you are one of 25 million Americans who suffer from Asthma or you primarily work or study at home, then cleaning and protecting your air is particularly important in order to prevent uncomfortable symptoms and breathe fresh clean air that supports your productivity, focus, and happiness. And if you’re lucky enough to live with a four-legged friend, they are excellent for cuddles, curbing stress, and boosting your mental health, but the pet dander they produce can trigger sore throats, itchy eyes and other allergic reactions. However, true HEPA air filters such as those used in Happi air purifiers capture 97% of the allergens that irritate your airways like pet dander, pollen, and dust particles as small as .03 microns.
Curb the Effects of Chemicals in Your Home
Whether you reside in a major metropolitan city or a rural area, everyone stands to benefit from the comfort of breathing clean air and eliminating harmful chemicals potentially lurking in your home.
Though scientific studies have enlightened us to harmful chemicals used in building materials and inspired stricter construction regulations across the US, there is still a long way to go in phasing out these chemicals from American homes. Many people are familiar with the prevalence of harmful asbestos in older building materials throughout the 20th century. Fewer, perhaps, are familiar with the odorless and colorless toxins emitted from building materials like rocks, soil, and granite and the effects they can have on our health. Additionally, the toxic chemicals found in many cleaning agents such as ammonia and chlorine can infiltrate your air causing health issues.
But don’t run to your bunker just yet- exposure to common toxins can be harmless in small amounts. It’s the routine prolonged exposure to toxins that leads to more serious health issues, and there are many ways to limit their effects on your indoor air. Thanks to vast improvements in research and technology, we now have air purifiers to clean these contaminants with 5-layer HEPA filters that capture common pollutants and toxins so you can live and breathe comfortably with peace of mind.
Capture Unpleasant Odors and Smells
Cooking with pungent ingredients or returning inside from a smoke break can introduce odors into your home or office that linger. At best, they create discomfort. At worst, odors can lead to headaches or nose, throat and lung irritation.
Air purifiers with HEPA filters are incredibly effective at trapping odor particles from cooking, pets, garbage, smoke and other smelly sources that interfere with your comfort and everyday life.
Improve the Quality of Your Sleep
Conventional wisdom teaches us that most adults need 8 hours of sleep in order to feel rested and alert, and the pursuit of a good night’s rest has inspired many a gadget or phone app. And while some solutions work better than others, clean purified air is incredibly effective at improving the quality of your sleep in addition to your overall health.
Studies have shown that people who live in areas with high levels of air pollution were 60 percent more likely to sleep poorly than those who live in areas with cleaner air. When your bedroom lacks good ventilation, carbon dioxide particles can rise to concerning levels, which results in shorter stretches of sleep and subsequent decreased cognitive function. In other words, you might wake up on the wrong side of the bed the next day.
When we don’t get adequate sleep, drowsiness can effectively ruin our day by affecting our focus and productivity. Air purifiers filter out allergens and toxins that disrupt our nights, improving the quality of our sleep and supporting our overall health.
Live a Healthier Happier Life
Healthy is happy. In other words, physiological health supports psychological health and vice versa, and air purifiers support both. True HEPA air purifiers capture 99.97% of airborne particulate matter, making them an invaluable tool for our health and wellness, especially in homes with immunocompromised family members. And thanks to a wealth of science and research, we know that cleaner air means healthier, happier humans.
