People don’t often take air pollution seriously because we’ve been use to the polluted air around us for a long time. While we take serious concern about the purity of water we drink by installing water filters and purifiers, air quality is something that isn’t given serious thought. Air pollution is caused due to various factors including the chemicals from factories, emission from cars and other vehicles, dust and pollen etc. Even if you live in an area free from factories, your home can still be polluted if you have pets and common dust particles.

Air Purifier FAQs
How to improve air quality in your home
If you’re looking to improve the air quality in your home, then the best option is to invest in an air purification system. Even though you use vacuum cleaners to get the dust and dirt from your carpets, they may still hold smaller dust and pollen particles that may become dangerous for your health over a period of time. A good air purifier with HEPA filters can help in removing all kinds of contaminants and pollutants and give you fresh, clean air to breathe all the time.
Do CADR scores measure gas-based pollutants?
The CADR rating doesn’t give you a measurement of gaseous pollutants, but the representation of the capability of an air purifier to purify the air inside your home.
Is the air more polluted inside or outside your home?
While many think that air outside of your house is more polluted, that’s not always the case. If you have pets or smoke inside, the air quality can be around 3-5 times more contaminated with pollutants than the air quality outside.
Does size matter?
Yes, the size does matter as the larger the size, the better it serves a larger area. But remember, air purifiers that cover a larger area are more expensive than compact ones.
