Canadians Are Spending More Time At Home Than Ever, Here’s Why You Should Be Thinking About Your Air Quality
Indoor air pollution is five times worse than outside.
While many people might be on the fence about how beneficial it is to stay home, you can't deny that it's actually had a lot of positive outcomes for us. We're staying safe by maintaining social distancing, saving money on gas, and cutting down pollution and emissions. Additionally, this time has allowed us to spend more time with our loved ones, or reconnect with what matters to us most. It has been a great reset in the midst of madness.
But even with all of these productive turnarounds, there are potential consequences to spending all this time indoors.
Health Canada reports that Canadians spend approximately 90% of our time indoors, a number which is more than likely only magnified as of late.
When being mandated to stay at home that much, things can get a little intense. Isolation, especially when living on your own, can lead to magnified feelings of depression and anxiety, and can also worsen symptoms of other mental illnesses — which is something super important to be aware of, always.
And one other thing people don't think about too much? The air quality inside your house.
Apparently, indoor air pollution is much worse than outdoor. Who would've thought? When indoors, we are constantly breathing in air pollutants such as viruses, dust, bacteria, human and pet hair, smoke... the list goes on.
No matter your age or state of health, indoor air pollution affects us all. When you think about it, we all know at least one person who is sensitive to allergens, airborne viruses, and other air pollutants.
Poor air quality can seriously take a toll on your body, mainly irritating your eyes, nose, and throat, which can then cause shortness of breath or even aggravate respiratory conditions such as asthma.
In fact, if you experience frequent headaches, dizziness, and fatigue, poor air quality is a silent suspect to consider.
It goes without saying that air quality should be one of our priorities right now, and it's something that's not often thought of when it comes to our own well-being.
Thankfully, there's a simple solution to effectively eliminate any type of indoor air pollution: the best option is to invest in a high-quality air purifier.
Canadian manufacturer AtmosC has created the modern technology it takes to help make a difference during the pandemic — not just in terms of your own indoor air quality, but also in terms of helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
If you're wondering how an air purifier can help protect you against certain potentially airborne viruses, well, think of air purification as an added tool in your arsenal of being extra careful — just like a mask or hand sanitizer.
The AtmosC A-Series in particular comes equipped with PFF-9 technology, which is essentially a nine-layer system that includes a medical-grade HEPA filter and an activated carbon filter. Their UV light technology has been proven to alter the DNA and RNA of viruses and other biological contaminants leading to their destruction. A real virus killer.
The PFF-9 technology is also equipped with a pre-filter, which captures pollen, dust, fur, and other large particles, and an antibacterial filter, formulated to trap bacteria and other organic pollutants in the air — among many other layers, as well. Altogether, the A-Series can eliminate a wide range of impurities such as viruses, bacteria, chemicals, odours, and more.
Even though it sounds like a whole lot of technology, it can still purify a 600-square-foot area within nine minutes, humidify indoor air for optimal breathing during our harsh, dry Canadian winters, and measure indoor air quality up to 1000 times every minute, notifying users of any danger.
A proud Canadian manufacturer with over 25 years of experience and expertise, AtmosC has been providing the pure air experience for customers since 2014. So, it goes without saying that they know clean air!
If you're ready to improve your indoor air quality, here's some good news. Right now, AtmosC is offering $100 off your purchase by using the promo code NARCITY100.
And, true, there isn't a whole lot of awareness surrounding clean air in the home. But when looking after your mind and body, and trying to stay as safe as possible, it's important to consider all contributing factors — particularly the air we spend about 90% of our time in.
Especially with the holiday season around the corner, what better way to express your care for those you love than to offer them pure and clean air?
