Air purifiers help you breathe easier, and if we know one thing about sleep, it’s that breathing fluctuates throughout the night. While most people breathe slower when they’re asleep, research shows that our breathing speeds up during REM sleep.
So what does all this mean for you? It all boils down to your indoor air quality. Without an air purifier in Sussex County, DE, you can sleep more soundly because you breathe in fewer irritants and particles. Let’s break it all down right now.
Reduces Allergens in the Air
If you have allergies, these little particles floating around, referred to as allergens, cause you a lot of grief. But here’s the thing—these can still impact your breathing while you sleep even if you don’t have allergies.
Inhaling dust, pet dander, and particulate matter while you sleep doesn’t exactly sound nice, does it? These can still irritate your throat, make their way into your lungs, and make you feel congested when you wake up (depending on the levels in your air).
Allergy sufferers will greatly benefit from whole house air purifiers, although every member of your family can also reap the rewards. With a properly sized system that’s powerful enough for your whole home, you can experience better sleep.
Better Respiratory Health
High particulate matter in the air isn’t exactly synonymous with good air quality. We become blind to the conditions we live in because they can be normal. This is why a guest may notice something off about the air in your home, but to you, everything is fine.
Similarly, we get used to bad sleep and poor air quality, so we don’t realize what we’re missing. So how does this impact your respiratory health?
Because poor air quality puts additional strain on your respiratory system. Your lungs aren’t just there to absorb oxygen—they’re also filters. Mucus in your lungs grabs onto dust, debris, and germs, then filters it out.
While you’re unlikely to wake up because a smell wafts into your bedroom, you can have a harder time falling asleep when unpleasant odors are present. This can be the smell of tobacco, food cooking (since it stimulates arousal levels), or even the smell of a neighbor starting a bonfire.
Air purifiers aren’t specifically meant to reduce odors, but by pulling in particulate matter, they’re also lowering odor levels in your home. All of this sets a better stage for sleep, because who can fall asleep when you know your roommate is cooking bacon? You’re going to get up for the bacon.
