Prevention Has a New Name: Forbes Health Conditioner

Summer’s here and it’s bringing with it cold drinks, colourful clothing, sunscreen restocks and the sweltering heat. In preparation for the summer, people are upgrading, replacing or adding new air conditioners to their homes.

But did you know that ACs tend to recirculate stale air within a closed room, which means you breathe contains airborne bacteria, yeast and mould, among other allergens?

Sounds hard to believe? Research has found that respiratory diseases are predominant in India, and they are the second largest killers in a country where some of the world’s most polluted cities are located. With air pollution becoming a major concern around the country, improving the quality of air indoor is of the essence. Afterall, prevention is better than cure.

While picking an air conditioner, it’s important to be cognizant of the fact that respiratory diseases are predominant in India. They are the second largest killers in a country where, according to recent reports, some of the world’s most polluted cities are located.

Taking preventive measures to ensure that the air you and your family breathe is healthy and fresh, is the first step to keeping these diseases at bay.

What Your Indoor Air Needs   

Regular air conditioners offer a variety of cooling features. And while cooling is a prerequisite for any air conditioner, taking care of the quality of indoor air isn’t. Air conditioners keep the air around you cool and keep you comfortable indoors, while the outdoors are hot, humid and sticky.

They cool the air and recirculate the same air in the closed room, which becomes stale over a period of time. The stale air also contains pollutants like bacteria, viruses, chemicals, pet hair, cooking fumes, smoke, etc.

You need something that traps the unhealthy particles, removes the dangerous VOCs from the air and kills airborne bacteria. So that you and your family are left breathing healthy, fresh air.

The young minds of India deserve to breathe in healthy air!

“Children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.” – Nelson Mandela

Children are the ones who have the ability to transform the society with their free will, imagination, creativity, and unique thought process. They are our most valuable resources and it is our responsibility to nurture, protect, and educate them.

On one side, the world is inventing brilliant technology to shape these minds, while the other side is failing to keep the environment healthy for them. On the basis of a report, 92% of the world population lives in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits. Talking about a similar issue, Delhi reports around 30,000 deaths annually due to air pollution, making it the fifth leading cause of deaths in India.

The air quality in Delhi has hit an emergency level of PM 2.5 at 397 mg/cubic metre which is six times higher than the ‘safe to breathe’ limits. The nation’s capital is deluged in fatal smog that has resulted in many accidents and life-threatening diseases.

Studies have shown that children are at highest risk of facing multiple hazards due to this condition. Their vulnerability to respiratory diseases is primarily because of the following reasons:

  1. High exposure to air pollution due to extended time spent outdoors.
  2. They have fragile lungs which are still developing.
  3. They inhale more pollutants per kilogram of body weight than adults.
  4. As respiratory tracts are narrower in children, irritation may result in proportionately greater airway obstruction.

In order to combat this tough situation and safeguard children from any type of allergies and respiratory concerns, parents can take the following measures:

  1. Reduce stepping outdoors

If you see an increased level of pollution outside your home, avoid stepping outside unless it is absolutely necessary.

  1. Invest in an air pollution mask

In case you or your loved ones wish to step outside, do wear an anti-pollution mask to avoid inhaling harmful pollutants.

  1. Increase ventilation

With a proper ventilation system in your home, the indoor air pollution can be minimized to a greater extent. Use an exhaust fan while cooking to suck all the cooking fumes outside your home. You can also go for trickle vents to circulate air in your home and help in reducing the chances of indoor air pollution.

  1. Bring home houseplants

It is believed that houseplants can purify and rejuvenate air in your homes. A few of the preferred plants that can help in cleansing the air inside your home are Peace Lily, Lady Palm, Bamboo Palm, Spider Plant, etc.

  1. Deep clean your home

Ensure your home is thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. The absence of dust mites, dirt and allergens will keep the air inside your home purified.

  1. Invest in an air purifier

Bring home an air purifier that will purify your indoor making it free from pollutants, contaminants, and smoke.

As breathing gets tough for adults, it gets tougher for the young ones. The future of our country is in danger and we need to do something to take care of it. So this children’s day, let’s take a step towards safeguarding children’s health by taking all the precautionary measures. You can start by bringing home Dr Aeroguard SCPR 300 and ensure that your little ones breathe in purified air.
