Breathe the fresh air with Havells advanced range of Air purifier
Gone are the days when an apt description of winters was an apparent coolness in the air, the warmth of the sun rays, and the foggy mornings and evenings. However, in the 21st century, this last change of yearly weather in most Indian cities can now be defined by throat irritation, eye burning, allergies, and breathlessness.
If you don’t believe in this new-age representation of the wintertime, then simply check the live Air Quality Index (AQI) of your respective city in any of the television news channels or by reading the news.
But, before you do that let us warn you to have a thick skin actually lungs in this case, as you’ll find the AQI in most of North Indian cities, including Delhi NCR, to be anywhere between 300 and 999. Well, most readings can’t go beyond the three digits because of the limitation of the technology, and thus, the figure is between this level else, who knows what the measuring scale would depict.
For those who don’t have a clear insight into what the AQI or an air quality index means then it is a number used to define the air condition of a city. It gives a synopsis and a forecast on the current state and if it is polluted or unadulterated. To simplify it further, it is similar to the weather forecast, but in this case, it only estimates the air quality. So, a good, satisfactory, and no risk level of air quality is when the value is anywhere between 0 and 50. Yes, you read it right, 50. A moderate AQI is 51 to 100. But, the current scale in many cities of India is in the “hazardous” category, which means the air that we are breathing is contaminated and has highly toxic solid particles such as gases, dust, pollen, etc. suspended in it.
In fact, the cloudy feeling that looks temperate from inside the house is not the winter feel, but it is smog, i.e. smoke and fog in the air. Though like every year, the stubble burning plays a huge role in contributing towards dust particles and harmful gases caused it during this time of the year, other factors like motor vehicle emissions, exhaust from diesel generators, dust from construction sites, etc. can’t be ignored in advancing towards the tainted air further.
Thus, in this pollution-ridden and noxious atmosphere that we live in today, having an air purifier has become a necessity. This latest product invented by companies ensures it cleans the air around us and thereby makes sure that at least the air that we breathe indoors is pure and healthier. Hence, when purchasing this much-required device, it is vital to review its specifications. A good air purifier should ideally have at least a series of 5-7 stages of filtration that removes harmful airborne particles such as dust, pollen, etc. For substantial air quality improvement, consider models with HEPA filters, or high-efficiency particulate air filters, which tend to reduce over 99.5% of common airborne allergens and provide advanced filtration of up to 0.03 microns, i.e. 80 times smaller than PM 2.5.
An air purifier is especially valuable for a home with small children or older adults because the immune and metabolic systems of this group are developing and weak, respectively. This aspect increases the chances of allergies and asthma in them. But, for other ages too it is an essential product as most people spend nearly 85 per cent of their time indoors-inside homes, offices, schools, etc. As the central feature of an air purifier is to refine the indoor air quality and circulate purified air back into the room; thus, investing in this machine according to the enclosed areas is even more imperative.
With air pollution in such a grave state and the government issuing a health advisory and an emergency in the national capital for the past few days, it is advisable to purchase in an air purifier from specialized and reliable electronic good companies like Havells. With an intense filtration process and features like a humidifier, pre-filter activated carbon, LED air purity indicator, manual timer setting and child lock, it is time to fight this silent killer that took over 1.2 million lives in India in 2017 as per a global report with the Havells newest range of air purifiers!
