Traffic pollution could be far more dangerous than previously thought.

Road pollution and the effects on your health

If you live near a main road, you might have noticed that the air you breathe isn't as clean and fresh as you'd like it to be. This is because main roads are one of the most significant sources of air pollution, emitting harmful particulate matter and gases into the atmosphere. Australian researchers have made estimates about the deadly impact of air pollution based on a New Zealand study. Traffic pollution likely causes more than 11,000 premature deaths in Australia a year.

Air pollution from traffic is a significant problem in cities across Australia, with health impacts including respiratory disease, heart disease, and stroke. That's why investing in an air purifier can be crucial to your health and wellbeing.

An air purifier is a device that removes pollutants from the air, making the air in your home cleaner and healthier to breathe. It works by drawing air through filters, which trap pollutants including dust, pollen, and smoke, as well as harmful gases like carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. The purified air is then released back into the room, providing you with clean, fresh air to breathe.

Living near a main road means that you're exposed to higher levels of particle pollution and carcinogenic gases, which can have a detrimental effect on your health. Studies have found that living close to major roads is associated with increased risks of respiratory diseases, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer. It's not just your lungs that are affected, either – exposure to air pollution has also been linked to heart disease, stroke, and even cognitive decline including dementia.

Fortunately, an INOVA air purifier can help mitigate the effects of air pollution and improve your health. By removing pollutants from the air, an air purifier can reduce your exposure to harmful particulate matter and gases, helping to protect your respiratory and cardiovascular health. This is especially important if you or anyone in your household suffers from respiratory problems or allergies, as air pollution can exacerbate these conditions.

INOVA E8, E20 and DE20 models each feature H13 medical-grade HEPA filters as well as high-capacity activated carbon filters with kilograms of activated carbon designed specifically to capture the vehicle pollutants associated with living near a main road.
