Indoor air quality is a concern for everyone but for those who live with limited ventilation or windows, it becomes a larger problem that needs addressing. Improper ventilation in apartments is a common hindrance. Shared walls lead to a lack of windows and limited indoor air ventilation, resulting in diminished air quality and a higher concentration of airborne contaminants and allergens.
Poor air quality can lead to exacerbated respiratory issues and even cause new issues to arise. Side effects of both can cause itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing, headaches, and difficulty breathing. Preventing all poor air quality sources isn’t possible, it can be highly controlled with the use of an air purifier. With poor airflow in apartments, an air purifier introduces air movement through its filtration system. Air movement prevents the accumulation of irritating allergens and pollutants. The first step in tackling these matters is introducing an air purifier with a combination True HEPA filter and Activated Carbon Filter into your home.
A Winix True HEPA filter captures 99.99%* of airborne allergens down to 0.003 microns in size – including pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, and other ultrafine particles. An Activated Carbon Filter is the only type of filter that captures odor. A Winix Activated Carbon Filter reduces odors and the presences of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). This filter is designed to catch airborne particles found inside apartments, and also helps prolong the lifespan of the True HEPA Filter. These filters work together seamlessly to increase the air quality in your apartment.
Apartment living has its restrictions. This doesn’t mean you don’t have control of your air! The use of an air purifier increases the circulation in your apartment and will provide you and your family with not only healthier breathing conditions, but a space that feels fresh.
