Canadian Smoke and Air Quality Solutions

In the wake of numerous wildfires across the country and Canada, concerns about air quality have been multiplying. Smoke from wildfires heavily contributes to air pollution, as it contains fine particulate matter and other pollutants like ozone, nitrogen dioxide, etc. Although we cannot control the outdoor air quality, our home’s indoor air is much more manageable. Here we answer some questions about the dangers of poor air quality and how to ensure your indoor air stays clean.

Why does air quality matter?

Poor air quality is responsible for more than 100,000 premature deaths in the US annually. Our physical health is affected by what we breathe in, which is why there are numerous air pollution-related illnesses, such as asthma attacks, throat irritation, and even heart attacks. This contamination is especially harmful to seniors or people with preexisting conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, respiratory, or heart conditions. The risk is also present indoors—air inside your home can contain harmful pollutants just like outside air.

How can I keep wildfire smoke out?

If you know the outdoor air quality index is unhealthy, you should protect your home’s air as much as possible. Check that all your windows are closed and sealed so outdoor pollutants cannot quickly come in through those channels. In addition, your home should have a carbon monoxide alarm to alert you in case of emergency levels. Lastly, you can purify the air in your home so that harmful particles are filtered out.

Which air purifier should I use?

Improving your air quality can be relatively simple once you have an air purifier solution, especially if it’s seamlessly integrated with your current HVAC system.
