Why You Need to be Using an Air Purifier During the Winter Months.Brian
Winter is just around the corner! That means no more ragweed, no more pollen, and no more need for an air purifier – Right?
With dropping temperatures also comes the worst indoor air you’ll experience all year long. Here are four reasons why you need to be using an air purifier during the winter months.
1. Less Natural Ventilation
As the weather drops we do everything we can to keep the chill out of our homes – windows are sealed, doors are kept shut, and we may even add some additional insulation to get the job done. While this will help keep you cozy all winter long, it also means your indoor air will become stagnant, and irritants will settle and build up because of the lack of circulation.
2. You’re Spending More Time Indoors
It’s cold outside, so naturally you’ll be spending more time in your cozy (slightly more polluted now) home. On average we already spend 90% of our time indoors where the air can be 2 – 5x more polluted than the air outdoors. In the winter this percentage only increases, exposing you to even more pollutants than normal.
3. Your Pets Are Spending More Time Indoors
It’s not just you that will be spending more time indoors this winter, your pets will be too. It won’t take long for pet-related contaminants (fur, dander) to start to build up.
4. Additional Sources of Indoor Allergens
In addition to heat and ambiance, gas & wood fireplaces, even candles can throw off unwanted chemicals, dust, soot, and odors that negatively affect your indoor air quality.
