Pollution whether Outdoor or Indoor has now become hazardous to our lives. Indoor Air Pollution is the degradation of indoor air quality by Harmful chemicals. It’s 10 times more harmful than Outdoor Air Pollution. The Indoor Air Pollution is mainly caused by Total Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOC). Women, Senior citizens, and Young children are the most affected form it.
Micro Pollutants PM2.5 comes from various sources. They are 30 times finer than the human hair. They are so small and light, hence, stay longer in the air. They settle deep into the lungs on inhalation. Further, Enter the circulatory system, causing respiratory and various diseases.
The WHO recommends that PM2.5 concentrations do not exceed 10 ug/m3
According to Reports, premature death from heart and lung disease mostly caused due to exposure to fine particles. They also worsen chronic diseases like asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory problems.
Check The quality of the air you are breathing using the Air Quality Index
What are the colors of the Air Quality Index?
|Level of Health Concern||AQI Values|
|Good||0 to 50|
51 to 100
|Orange||Unhealthy for sensitive groups|
101 to 150
151 to 200
How to Protect Yourself Against PM2.5
When the level of PM2.5 increases, you can reduce exposure and protect yourself with the preventive measures for Indoor Air Pollution. Recently, I’ve come across one of the effective solutions. 3M™ Electrostatic Air Conditioner, that claims to remove PM2.5 and other air pollutants from indoor air.
What is 3M™ Electrostatic Air Conditioner Filter all about?
3M™ Electrostatic Air Conditioner Filters are designed in such a way that is easily fit into the filtering screen of your split air conditioners. They enable the AC to remove PM2.5 and other MicroParticle pollutants from the indoor air. And gives you clean air to breathe in.
How does 3M™ Air Conditioner Filter work?
3M™ Electrostatic Air Conditioner Filters with Filtrete™ technology electrostatic charge have exclusive 3-in-1 technology that acts like a magnet to attract and capture microscopic allergens that can pass through fiberglass or non-electrostatic filters. You get clean air to breathe in each time it passes through the filter.
Electrostatic filters are most effective when they are new and clean. You can see the PM2.5 it is capturing as the filter turns black with use. It’s advised to change your filter when it turns black, for maximum effectiveness.
I was shocked to see the filter in my home start turning grey in just 10 days! This gave me an idea of the kind of pollutants we are breathing day in and day out!
The efficiency of 3M™ Electrostatic Air Conditioner Filters is competitive with the electronic Air purifiers. Apart from that, it saves electricity cost and prices effective too.
