Why buy an Air Purifier for your home?

Why buy an Air purifier for you home?
There is an increasing concern about air quality both indoors and outdoors. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air quality can be 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Since indoor air is not circulated as much as outdoor air, many airborne pollutants continue to thrive inside.

Air purifiers can refresh stale air, reducing the chances of health issues that can be caused by indoor pollutants. These pollutants can trigger respiratory infections, neurological problems, or aggravate symptoms for people who suffer from asthma. Quality air purifiers, such as ones manufactured by Austin Air Systems sold at The Natural Mattress VT, can eliminate air pollutants, keeping us healthy.

Air Purifiers with HEPA Technology filters can remove 99.7% of airborne particulate matter (PM) circulating in your home environment. Removing these particles can lead to several immediate and long term health benefits such as better sleep quality and even increased life expectancy!

How Do Air Purifiers Work?
Air purifiers contain one or more filters and a fan. The fan (or sometimes a system of internal fans) sucks in air, and that air then passes through the inside filters. These filters trap pollutants such as dust, pollen, and bacteria, and disperse clean air back into the room. This filtering process maintains healthy air circulation indoors.

Some of the Pollutants that an air purifier can remove are dust, pet dander, smoke, allergens, and environmental pollution that kind find their way into your home, office, or school. Purchasing an air purifier like ones made by Austin Air is an investment.

Below are some of the most compelling reasons to go ahead with making your purchase.

Neutralizes Unpleasant odors
Some chemicals such as formaldehyde, gasoline and benzyne will break down at room temperature causing an off-gassing odor. These chemicals are called Volatile Organic compounds or (VOCS), and are commonly found in paints, aerosol sprays, upholstered furniture, mattresses, carpets, and air fresheners. The odor from VOCs can cause nausea, breathlessness, and even affect your cognitive functions.
Other NIH studies show low VOC levels in ambient air improves productivity and performance. Air purifiers with HEPA and activated carbon filters are effective in trapping gases as well as particles, reducing pollutants in the indoor environment.

You are a pet owner
Many people who live with pets experience allergies caused by pet dander, hair and fur that are all consequences of living with these animals we adore. An air purifier will work to filter pet dander from your air to leave your environment healthier and cleaner.

Reduces chances of airborne diseases
The main method of transmission for common viruses including the common cold, the flu and Covid-19 is airborne. When we come in contact to an infected person, they release the virus into the surrounding environment. The higher the number of infected particles, the greater our risk of infection. According to the CDC, WHO and EPA, air purifiers using HEPA and Carbon are the safest and most effective in minimizing the spread of viruses in indoor spaces.

Improves Sleep
Indoor allergens such as bacteria, fungi, and dust mites can trigger allergies or hay fever. Hay fever causes a runny nose that can last weeks. Frequent coughing sneezing, nose congestion, watery eyes, or sore throat are some symptoms that can keep you from getting a good nights sleep.

You have loved ones with respiratory problems
Respiratory diseases such as Asthma are unpredictable. Certain allergens can set of an attack that can reduce lung function and in severe cases, result in the inability to breathe. Doctors often recommend keeping your air quality as high as possible to allow for easy breathing and to eliminate the possibility of health problems arising.


The awareness that there is a lack of good ventilation in homes has increased demand for air purifiers in the home. They can be very effective in reducing in home air pollution. The Natural Mattress Company has chosen to carry Austin Air Systems because according to an EPA report, a significant amount of HEPA and Carbon must be used in your air purifier’s filtration otherwise filters will need to be changed often (every few months). That’s why the Austin Air HealthMate® Plus has:


60 sq. ft. of True Medical Grade HEPA proven to remove 99% of all virus particles larger than 0.1 microns.


Over 780 cubic inches of Activated Carbon, Potassium Iodide Impregnated Carbon, and Zeolite. Removes Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, benzenes, chemicals, gases, and odors.

No one in the industry even comes close to using that much. This ensures a long filter life of up to 5 years.
