Air Products

Written by Karen Bates (last updated December 5, 2022)

For many people, the air you breathe indoors makes up the majority of the air you will breathe during each day. Whether at home, at work, or anywhere else indoors, you are likely to breathe a lot of indoor air.

This isn't always necessarily an issue, of course. After all, when most of us think about air pollution, we think of the outdoor kind. But the truth is that many indoor areas also have air pollution, and it could be making you sick, uncomfortable, or may be causing an allergic reaction that could be avoided with the right prevention.

There are many air products available that can help clean the air indoors. Depending on your situation, you can choose from various types of clean air products to help improve the quality of the air in your home or other indoor areas. Make sure that you research various products so you can get the right fit for you.

One of the best-known ways to clean the air is with a filter system. If you have a heating or air conditioning system in your home, you probably already know about changing or cleaning the filter often. For extra cleaning, you can use an air purifier that filters the air. These purifiers work by taking in the air in the area, sending it through a filter that captures and hold particles, and then releasing the clean air back out into the room. These can be great for those with allergies and respiratory problems. When choosing filters, you have many options. One of the best is the HEPA filter, but other good options are available as well.

Some air cleaning devices use an ionic system to purify the air. These purifiers will change the charge of particles that pass though, causing them to become attracted and stick to plates within the machine. Once the air has been cleaned of many of these unwanted particles, the clean air goes out of the machine and back into the room, leaving you with purer air to breathe.

For industrial or larger-scale jobs, air scrubbers are another kind of air product. These machines cycle more air through and are able to effectively and efficiently capture potentially harmful contaminants in the air like chemicals, gases, mold, fumes, and others.

If you are interested in improving air quality indoors, consider air products that can help to clean the air and potentially prevent illnesses and breathing problems.
