Today, I’m partnering up with Blueair, a company that believes that everyone has the right to breathe air as pure as nature intended. Let’s talk about air purifiers, why it’s important to have an air filter at home, and what are the health benefits to breathing clean air.
It’s October in New England, meaning that the weather is changing, becoming colder. Which in my home means that we are hunkering down a little more, the doors and windows now closed semi-permanently until the spring, when warm weather will grace us again. Knowing that we’ll be “locked” in for a few months, my first order of business this year was to get an air filter and air filtering plants that would help with the cleanliness of the air we would be breathing in and out for the next few months.
After doing my research, I reached out to Blueair, an air purification system that seemed to be the best to work for our family, and decided to partner with them to showcase why it’s important to have an air filter at home, even more so in the fall and winter.
The Blueair website is quite educational and instructive when it comes to air purification, so I wanted to share some touch points from them:
What is clean air? Even though no single global standard for clean air exists, there are many different definitions of clean air. The air quality outdoors varies depending on emissions from industries nearby, traffic exhaust and local regulation. Indoors, the air can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Studies show that breathing clean air can contribute to your health and well-being. Using a Blueair air purifier that removes airborne pollutants can go a long way toward helping you breathe healthier.
You might be wondering, how does an air purifier actually work? Well, simple enough: they use a system of internal fans to pull the air in your home through a series of filters that remove harmful airborne particles like dust, pollen and bacteria. The air purifier then circulate the purified air back into the room. This process repeats itself several times an hour, keeping your environment healthy!
The EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) has an incredible informative piece on “The Inside Story: A Guide to Indoor Air Quality”, which goes into detail on what the indoor pollutants are, how to reduce or avoid them, as well as why it’s important to breathe clean air.
We’ve been using the Blue Pure 211+ model for the past five months, which is perfect for our space. It’s been heaven sent, as it really has helped with allergies, dust mites, and overall the cleanliness of our hime. If you’re looking for an air purifier for your house, I definitely recommend this brand! Some of the health benefits of having an air purifier in your home, include but are not limited to:
- clear allergens and other particles
- effectively remove odor
- also remove pollen, smoke, and dust
- productively remove pet dander from your environment
…which all in turn means you are breathing cleaner air!
Disclaimer: This post is in partnership with Blueair and they have supplied us with an air filter free of cost to test out. I am only recommend it because it actually works and delivers the results I needed – which were clean air! Opinions are 100% my own, as usual.
