Few things are as important as the air we breathe. Air pollution has become the world’s biggest environmental health risk. The role of air pollution in the development of respiratory diseases is well known. Also there is a link between, indoor and outdoor air pollution exposure and cardiovascular diseases, such as strokes and ischemic heart disease.

Indoor air can have levels of certain pollutants up to five times higher than outdoor air. It’s a major health and safety concern. There are a lot of indoor contaminants, including dust, cigarette smoke, organic compounds, allergens, and bacteria.

Use of air filters is one of the suggested strategies to improve indoor air quality. Home air filtration systems can make an enormous difference in the quality of the air, including:

  • Fight chemical odors and vapors

Unpleasant odors don’t just irritate your nose, they are bad for your health. Whole home air filtration destroys odors and chemical vapors from sources like pets, cleaning products, and cooking appliances.

  • Сombat germs and bacteria

If they make it into circulation, they can make you sick.

  • Filter out  airborne particles

You can’t see them, but you shouldn’t breathe them.

How do air filtrators work?

Filtrators consist of a filter, or multiple filters, and a fan that circulates air. Pollutants and particles are captured by a filter and the clean air is pushed back out into the living space. 

We offer the top air filtration systems in Canada and can help to make your house a safe harbor.
