There’s nothing quite like the feeling of taking a deep breath of fresh, clean air. Not only does it help relax and soothe our nervous systems, but it also boosts immunity, productivity, and overall health. And with the pandemic we’re all going through, clean and hygienic air is understandably high on our list of priorities! Here are the benefits of air filtration for homes and offices.
Filtering out environmental air pollutants
Environmental air pollutants are a part of our daily lives, and they often go unnoticed until they get really bad – or you escape out into nature. These pollutants come from vehicle exhaust, industrial processes, and even nature itself. With spring and wildfire season upon us, environmental air pollution can become devastating. Air filtration systems have very fine filters that sift out these particles and supply clean air, so you can close your home or office off from the environment around you and breathe easy.
Supporting good health
Since the COVID pandemic started, we’ve all become incredibly aware of how germs can travel easily through the air, but the reality is that this issue is one that’s been with us for a long time. That feeling of dread when you are sitting next to coughing, sneezing co-workers or when flu season hits at your child’s school – it’s all because germs and the droplets that carry them are recirculated through air supply systems. An air filtration system will help you reduce the risks of catching colds, flu, or viruses by continually cleaning the air that is in circulation in your home or office building. This means that germs and viruses are caught by the filter instead of being spread by your air conditioning system, continuously cleaning the air to help protect your health.
Say goodbye to allergies
Allergy season is here and that makes it one of the toughest times of the year for people with asthma and other respiratory conditions. Allergies can be incredibly debilitating, with painful, itchy eyes that won’t stop running, difficulty breathing, coughing, postnasal drip, and fatigue. Air filtration systems in your home and office help make spring a lot more enjoyable for allergy sufferers, cleaning pollens, dust, pet hair and other triggers out of the air to ease symptoms, reduce reliance on medication, and prevent more severe attacks.
Improve productivity and reduce absenteeism
Chucking a sickie and taking time off work costs the Australian economy about $7 billion each year! And that’s not to say you shouldn’t take time off when you’re sick – that’s no holiday for anyone. Instead, it’s a good idea to focus on employee wellness – for both businesses and staff. Reports consistently show that healthy people are more productive, more engaged, and more able to take on their roles effectively, which is just common sense. One of the best ways that we can help ourselves to be more productive is to install systems that keep the air free of germs, viruses and allergens – the pesky trio that causes more days of unhappiness and absenteeism than anything else. This also helps to better protect people who have weakened immune systems or health issues that can be made worse by everyday illnesses. Air filtration systems are a great step towards a holistic and effective approach to wellness, whether you work onsite or remotely!
