s are even effective at capturing germs such as bacteria, viruses and fungi. Portable air purifiers help circulate the air in a room, usually several times per hour, to reduce airborne allergens and stale air. Consumers should use an air purifier in the rooms where they spend the most time, such as the bedroom and living areas. Honeywell air purifiers are affordable, with some units costing less than $50, feature permanent filters that require simple rinsing or vacuuming to clean (reducing landfill waste), and are energy-efficient, with some products operating for the same low cost as running a 40-watt light bulb.
"The Healthy House Institute (HHI) strives to be the most comprehensive online educational resource for creating a better, safer indoor environment," said Allen Rathey, president of HHI. "We support the ongoing 'Care About Your Indoor Air' initiative, which is an important educational effort to broaden awareness of the issues surrounding indoor air quality and its potential impact on consumer health and safety."
Another misconception is that healthy adults aren't susceptible to the effects of poor indoor air quality. While poor indoor air poses particular risks for children, the elderly, the chronically ill and those affected by asthma and allergies, everyone is affected by breathing polluted air. Effects from exposure to poor indoor air may include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
