This past weekend, I went up into my attic and packed away all my sweaters and vests trading them for bathing suits and shorts. You know what that means, summer is here. While this represents the act of relaxation and a time to enjoy the outdoors, it is also important to recognize Mother Nature and how the heat is affecting the air around us. Simple activities such as leaving the air conditioning on a bit longer, keeping a door or window open to let in a breeze, and constantly running in and out of the house now make it more important than ever to purifier your home.
Through this quick read, I am going to highlight some of the top reasons I found throughout the internet on why you should consider buying an air purifier this summer for your home, beach getaway, apartment, office, or anywhere you go.

The Problem: What Causes Bad Air Quality In the Summer?
It is already beginning. As soon as I logged onto my smartphone to check the weather forecast, a pop-up came up notifying and warning me about the air quality. This caused me to dive a bit deeper and research more about summer air. The first thing is to look at the big picture and think about what is causing air quality to become worse.
According to a press release by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), tips to help reduce pollution including setting air conditioners to a higher temperature, avoiding using small gasoline-powered engines, such as lawnmowers, string trimmers, chain saws, power-washers, air compressors, and leaf blowers, and outdoor burning such as the use of fire pits and bonfires.
While each of these is activities can be followed, the most common summer activities include keeping on the air conditioning, mowing the lawn, and roasting marshmallows after a summer pool party. Therefore, every time we open the door and let in air from the outside we allow for toxins to filtrate and circulate the inside of our homes.
Our Tip: SHARP PLASMACLUSTER® AIR PURIFIERS
Over the past 12 months, I began to take a large interest in understanding the way the environment around me works, and the effect it can have on my health and well-being. No matter where you are on the globe, most have definitely begun to take additional caution to keep themselves well and making their well-being a higher priority. From what I have come to understand, a lot of it comes from the air you breathe.
Have you ever wondered why we are told to stay away from someone that is sick or why we get runny noses sometimes (yes, especially when it’s warm outside)? Well let an air purifier help filtrate and clean the air surrounding you calling for better and mindful living. Preferably, I highly recommend one of Sharp’s Plasmacluster® air purifiers. The reasoning is that their unique technologies help clean up germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus while destroying odors at the molecular level. This includes removing embedded odors in carpeting, drapery, and furniture.
