The Dangers of Indoor Pollution

While the vast amount of pollution occurs in outdoor environments, indoor pollution endangers the average person every day much more than outdoor pollution, because it is both more dangerous, and we spend a lot more time indoors.

In 2019, Global Action Plan confirmed that air indoors has between 3.5 to 500x the pollutants of the air outside. Although we assume the air inside is safe to breathe, it is clear that this is not the case. This pollution is a problem and we have to act.

Breathing harmful pollutants day after day is a threefold cause for concern:

  1. We are more likely to fall ill
  2. Our illness is more likely to worsen
  3. We will be sick for a longer period of time

Air pollution is the invisible enemy, impacting the lives of many. There is no question why the World Health Organisation has placed it as the number one risk to human life, responsible for nearly 4 million deaths a year.

Why are we affected more by pollutants indoors?

The majority of harmful pollutants are heavier than the air particles they are transported by. This means that when they enter a home, and they are no-longer being moved by a continuous flow of air, they are deposited until they are moved again.

Consequently, pollutants lurk within a home for far longer than they would outside, and they are more likely to be inhaled in higher concentrations and to cause damage.

Throughout our houses, especially those with older designs, air-flow was rarely a priority. Even if you open your windows, certain rooms and parts of your home will never have enough circulation to disturb the pollutants, for example a broom-cupboard or a bedroom. Our homes collect more pollutants each year. This does not even take into account the issues specific houses may have, such as dampness, asbestos leakage and radon exposure, all of which increase the likelihood of high-concentrations of pollutants in your home, and that you will suffer from them.

On average, we spend around 61% of our time in our homes and 85% of our time indoors, which means our exposure to these pollutants becomes worryingly high even after just a week. We spend hours trapped with these pollutants, but we should take steps to ensure our air is healthier and cleaner.


HealthyAir 500™ Home Air Purifier

The HealthyAir 500™ helps to keep the air in your home safe by decontaminating the air in the room. It delivers 500 m³ of PM2.5-cleaned air per hour to the whole room, all the time working to avoid dead spots.

Using ground-breaking multi-patented DNO Pollution Erasing Technology invented by chemists in Oxford, the four-stage filtration system pulls in the contaminated air from around the room, capturing and destroying germs, bacteria and dangerous gases.

Two large inlet multi-patented DNO filter cartridges draw a large volume of air through the four-stage filtration system. A powerful fan projects a strong upward flow of fresh air, pushing it into the far reaches of the room and drawing in the uncleaned contaminated air.

This revolutionary home air purifier benefits from an intuitive control panel with five fan-speed settings. The remote control handset allows you to alter the settings from the comfort of your armchair. It is environmentally friendly, consuming just 45W at the highest setting, with automatic, sleep and low-noise modes.
