Create a Healthier Home
Did you know the air inside your home may contain up to 10 times more pollution than air outside your door? Indoor air pollution can irritate your eyes, nose, and throat; cause headaches, dizziness, and fatigue; and aggravate asthmatic and allergic conditions. The average central forced-heat or air conditioning system typically performs some form of air cleaning, but it is not efficient enough to catch microscopic airborne pollutants and particles. TRION media air cleaners, like whole-home media air cleaners (Air Bears®) and whole-home electronic air cleaners (HE Plus Series), are designed to reduce airborne particles and improve your air quality.
The right level of humidity can also create a comfortable environment. Common winter ailments like dry skin, chapped lips, or dry eyes can occur when humidity levels are below 30%, according to the EPA. Humidifying your home’s air between 30% and 50% is one of the recommended treatments. (The American Lung Association cautions that humidity levels over 50% can lead to the growth of biological organisms such as dust mites that can cause allergic reactions and asthma symptoms.)
Medical experts report that the flu virus survives longer indoors when humidity levels are low. The use of a properly sized and selected TRION Steam, Evaporative , or Atomizing humidifier is one way to increase your winter-time health and comfort. To help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the CDC recommends using pleated air filters to improve ventilation. Proper air filtration can reduce the concentration of particles in the air. A lower concentration means it is less likely that the particles can be inhaled.
- Seasonal allergies affect 10% to 30% of the world population
- 339 million people have asthma, a condition that can be triggered by poor air quality
- Asthma causes 500,000 Americans to be hospitalized each year
- Dust mite growth can increase greatly indoors when humidity levels exceed 50%
- Humidity levels greater than 30% help alleviate dry skin, chapped lips, and dry eyes
- People spend 90% of their time indoors
