Why Efficient Air Filters Are A MUST-Have This Independence Day
Do you know what many Americans are looking forward to come July? Independence Day! Celebrating American liberty is a time for loud music, heavy traffic, cheering crowds and a captivating fireworks show.
We all wait for fireworks, but being exposed to dust and firecracker combustion can also pose risks to our health.
Fireworks And Air Contaminants
The chemical ingredients that give fireworks their bright color and appearance when ignited are toxic to the human body.
Metals such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury, aluminum, cobalt, iron, and manganese are mixed together to improve firework combustibility.
When these metals '' explode'', they are converted into airborne particulate matter.
These airborne particulate matters can settle in deep within the lungs, without any way to clear it up.
People suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can easily experience shortness of breath due to airborne particulates from firework ingredients. Those that are experiencing asthma can have recurring asthma attacks.
Due to lack of oxygen in the air and in the blood, people with cardiac problems can also experience detrimental effects from the emitted smoke.
Air Contaminants And Their Ability To Increase Free Radical Levels
Apart from toxic levels of airborne particulates,the inhalation of smoke from vehicles and cigarette smoking can bring even more risks to your health.
Free radicals are absorbed by your body and insidiously degenerate your cells, weakening your immune system.
Although free radicals are normally present within our bodies, increased levels can take a toll on your health.
The increased volume of free radicals gives you oxidative stress which leads to numerous illnesses.
Dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, cataracts, cancer, and diabetes are some of these sicknesses that can gradually develop with your everyday exposure to air pollutants. However, there is a solution to reducing free radicals and purifying the air you breathe, ridding of harmful chemicals.
Certain types of air filters can help cleanse the air boosting oxygen levels and reducing contaminants, improving its breathability.
What To Look For In An Efficient Air Filter
Nowadays, air filters use HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) technology to trap the smallest of dirt and debris.
Unlike ordinary filters, HEPA technology effectively sucks up the smallest of dirt particles in its mat of glass fibers without sending the dust back to the air.
Activated carbon filters are widely used to purify water, but they can also eliminate impurities present within the air.
The impressive microporosity of activated carbon filters gives it the ability to maximize absorption, including the smallest pollutant molecules.
Improving the air breathability can be achieved with the plant's ability to filter the air. With the plant's respiration and photosynthesis, both carbon dioxide and nitrogen are used up to propel these processes while simultaneously boosting blood oxygen levels in your body.
The EcoQube Airwas made with these three key systems in mind. Using a three-step filtration process, the Air first traps tiny dirt particulates using a HEPA-type filter, and then proceeds to purify any pollutants found using carbon technology - whether in smog released from fireworks or your dog’s sneezing.
Lastly, it makes use of a living plant which functions both to beautify your living space and to boost oxygen levels in the room to help keep your body functioning at peak potential.
