According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside your home can be 25 times more polluted than the air outside. These pollutants contribute to a variety of health problems including allergies and asthma. On its website, the EPA recommends several things you can do to reduce your risks, including controlling the source of the pollutants and increasing ventilation in your home. Rodman’s also recommends taking steps to reduce airborne pollutants inside your home.
Invest in a Quality Air Purifier
A good air purifier (electronic air cleaner) will remove pollutants and other particles from the air. This will reduce your risk to allergies or asthma, while improving your indoor air quality. Our air cleaners, available through Electro-Air Canada, provide an economical and environmentally friendly way to remove irritants and allergens, as well as pet, cooking, tobacco and other odors from your home air. These air cleaners are user-friendly, easy to maintain and feature silent operation so you can even leave them on while you sleep. After just a short time, you will notice cleaner, fresher-smelling air.
Selecting an Air Purifier
Choosing the right air purifier for your home isn’t a daunting task. Rodman’s is supplied with a selection of quality air purifiers from Electro-Air Canada. We will simplify the process of choosing the right air purifier for you by considering your needs along with key features of the purifier like the recommended size of the room it can clean, or the kinds of particles it removes. Whether your goal is to lessen asthma or allergy symptoms, get rid of dust, eliminate odors, or sanitize a particular area of your home, we can help you by recommending an air purifier that will meet your needs.
