Reap Major Health Benefits with Clean Air

Reap Major Health Benefits with Clean Air

Chanu Vasantharajah30/5/19

Clean air is integral for your physical health, which is why proper indoor ventilation is imperative. After all, according to Forbes, 90% of Americans spend their time indoors. A furnace filter is meant to help purify your air and, quite literally, filter all of the pesky particles, dirt and dust that can build up in your home. The thing is, failure to replace your furnace filter every few months – every 3 to 6 months dependant on the model – can result in a clogged furnace filter. It goes without saying that when your filter is clogged, it can no longer do its job of keeping the air in your home clean.

At PureFilters we understand the importance of air quality, which is why we strive to make purchasing furnace filters in Canada as easy as possible. We have three distribution centers in Canada, which makes it possible for us to deliver your online order within 3 to 5 days of your purchase. Just keep your eyes peeled for a confirmation email immediately after your purchase and get ready to receive your new filter.

When you take care of your furnace filter, you are taking care of your health. Dirty, polluted air can cause long term health problems, while pure air has numerous health benefits. Which will you choose? According to the Government of Canada, combining a filter with ventilation and reduced in-home contaminants can positively impact your home’s air purity.

It’s our goal to make sure that clean indoor air is easily attainable. These are the main health benefits of keeping your air clean:

Fewer Airborne Chemicals          

Many household products contain volatile organize compounds (VOC’s), which are chemicals that release into the air when evaporated. From carpets to newspaper to printers to cooking, there are many items and daily tasks that release these chemicals. They don’t emit any odours, so they often go unnoticed and unaddressed, which makes them very dangerous. These chemicals can be hazardous if you don’t have a functioning filter to keep them from impacting your indoor air quality. According to Indoor Environmental Systems, furnace filters can capture these chemicals and filter out particulates.

Better Digestion

Clean air improves your digestive tract’s ability to break down your food so that it can do what it’s supposed to do for your body. When the air you breathe is clean, you can digest food better due to your intake of oxygen. In simple terms, polluted air impacts your respiratory system, which has a direct impact on your digestion. Keeping your air clean by changing your furnace filter will help you keep your lungs clean, which in turn can improve your digestion.

Reduced Asthma Triggers

According to Cascade Environmental Consulting, polluted indoor air can trigger both asthma and allergies. By filtering your air, you can remove any irritants that may make it harder to breathe in your home. Leaving the same filter in your furnace will only pollute your air and cause problems for those who live in your home. Unfiltered air is especially damaging for those struggling with asthma, a condition that affects 25 million people every year according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Think about all the different particles, dust and bacteria that live on the surfaces in your home. According to the American Lung Association, if your air isn’t filtered properly, there are a lot of harmful things that you will be breathing in such as:  
  • Dust & dust mites
  • Pet Dander
  • Second-hand smoke
  • Asbestos
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses & more

Lung Health

When you inhale contaminated air full of dust, smoke and other particles, it’s hard on your respiratory system. These things can get into your lungs and cause long term health problems. A furnace filter can keep your home clear of problematic substances that may clog your air, which helps you to maintain cleaner lungs as a result. t’s much easier for digestive tract muscles to work when they are exposed to clean oxygen. According to the Canadian Lung Association, poor indoor air quality can result in long term lung problems such as lung disease — and you likely won’t even realize there is a problem until much later.

Reduced Allergy Symptoms

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, over 40 million people in the U.S. suffer from indoor allergies every day of the year. A filter may not rid you and your children of all allergies and reactions completely, but it is definitely effective in purifying air and reducing allergy symptoms. It will help remove any airborne dust and other pesky particles that may trigger your allergies. Norman Edelman, the chief medical officer of the American Lung Association, told Health Magazine that it’s best to use a filter to ventilate air and filter through as many particles as possible to keep your indoor air clean.
