To lead a healthy life, it is very important that the air we breathe in is pollution free and of good quality. Clean air is essential in maintaining the balance of life.

The term ‘quality of air’ means clean, clear and un-polluted air. Now, the quality of air depends on many factors, a small change in temperature for instance can affect the quality of air greatly.

We all know smog is produced when air reacts with pollutants like smoke from traffic, factories and other sources, but what few people know is that this process is quickened by the presence of sunlight / high temperatures. The higher the temperature and the more sunlight, the more the pollution and worse the quality of air.

On top of that, urban areas have a higher temperature than the rural ones. Temperature changes lead to even higher temperatures, which in turn leads to high electricity consumption and even more pollution. The best we can do to save ourselves from this ever increasing pollution is to stop spreading it ourselves, but that’s a difficult task for which we require state and/or government help.

Indoor vs Outdoor Air Quality

But since air is present all around us, whether we are indoors or outdoors, air pollution can’t be termed as an outdoor problem only. Air pollutants can easily seep in and contaminate the air we breathe in our homes.

Air purifiers are used to remove dust and contaminants from the air that are particularly harmful to people who have allergies or asthma, but it can also reduce the danger of any second hand smoke we might be getting.
In order to get best air purifier for your needs, you might need to check a few air cleaners for their efficiency rating. The better the rating the better the purifier. After all, as they say, health is wealth!
