During the last 2 years we have all spent more time in our homes to stay safe from COVID-19. However, this will not keep us away from common household pollutants such as pollen allergies, bacteria, industrial emissions, ultrafine particles, formaldehyde, odors, nitrogen dioxide, benzene, and VOCs. Removing these pollutions from your home can result in a long-term healthier lifestyle. It can also benefit you by improving your quality of sleep and increasing your life expectancy. Therefore, we believe that keeping an air purifier in your home is best for you, your family, and your friends.
How can air purifiers benefit you and your home?
1 – Help with your appearance – Air purifiers have so many benefits when it comes to you and your health. One benefit of having an air purifier is that it helps better your sleeping pattern. This is very important as sleep can affect your weight and even your mental health. Air purifiers, surprisingly, can make you look younger in your appearance. This is because pollutant can cause things such as wrinkles, inflammation, discolouration, and premature ageing. Removing pollutants from your air with the help of an air purifier can keep you looking youthful. It has also been proven that air purifiers can increase your life expectancy by more than a year.
2 – Pets – Having pets around the house can also result in having lots of hair shredded around the house and can also result in having bad smells around your house which can be hard to get rid of. Due to this air purifiers will become a good friend of yours as remove bad smells and particles from the hair resulting in fresher and cleaner air.
3 – Mold – It is not unusual for people to find mold within their homes and this is because there are different types of molds that can be found in home such as: Aspergillus, Stachybotrys, Alternaria, Penicillium and Cladosporium. Even though it is common for homes to have mold in them, mold can cause health issues such as itchy eyes, a stuffy nose, skin complications. Air purifiers and ventilations can help when it comes to reducing the mold in your house and can also prevent the cause of mold forming in your house.
4 – Asthma – In Ireland 1 in 8 people suffer from asthma. Asthma can result in your airways narrowing and swelling, making it difficult to breath and for some cases can cause you to Wheeze. If you are someone who suffers from asthma, an air purifier would benefit you as it will clean your air killing all your indoor pollutants. It can reduce symptoms for children who are at early stages of asthma and can reduce the chances of breathing difficulties caused by asthma.
5 – Pregnancy – If you are a pregnant woman, it is very important that you are breathing in clean air, as this can also affect your baby. Breathing in harmful particles whilst pregnant can result in low birth weight, having premature babies, can cause you to have high blood pressure, can cause lung development issues for your baby, can result in having asthma, and in some cases can cause autism.
Why Airocide is the best air purifier for you?
Airocide is developed by NASA! Airocide products are a next generation air purification technology for every space imaginable. Every unit uses photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology, which is there to remove all harmful airborne pathogens. Some Airocide products even provide additional two stage particulate filtration to ensure that smoke is eliminated from the air.
Airocide makes life easier by being on of a few air purifiers that doesn’t expect you to change any filters, instead you are provided with a light indicator which then lets you know that is it time to replace the reaction chambers. This, however, will only happen once a year.
How it works?
Once on, the household pollutants, such as bacteria and mold, will start to get pulled into the catalyst surface. The catalyst surface will then start to break down these pollutants particles until they no longer exist killing 99.99% of the airborne pathogens that pass through its processor.
PCO (Photocatalytic Oxidation)Technology
PCO purifiers are filterless. They however use broad-spectrum UV light in a reaction chamber to cause a reaction with water moisture and a thin sheet of a metal catalyst such as titanium dioxide that creates super-oxides and hydroxyl radicals that burn air contaminants. In this reaction, PCO air purifiers destroy air pollutants that get exposed and absorbed on the surface of the thin metal catalyst film of the air purifiers reaction chamber.
PCO air purifiers are also low maintenance and you only need to replace your reaction chamber about every 2-3 years and wipe the device as you would other appliances in your home to keep it clean.
