Health officials from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Environmental Protection Division have issued a code red air quality alert for Atlanta for June 29, 2012. The record high temperatures, stagnant wind and increased levels of humidity will create unhealthy smog levels in the surrounding metro area.
A code red signifies that everyone is at risk for respiratory problems due to the poor air quality. However, groups such as children, the elderly and those afflicted with asthma or other respiratory issues are particularly at risk.
Homeowners concerned about the negative impacts of poor air quality can invest in a home air purifier. Implementing the use of technology such as IQAir HealthPro Plus HEPA Air Purifiers can greatly reduce a person’s exposure to toxins and respiratory aggravators.
Even on days labeled as unhealthy due to the combination of air pollutions and environmental factors, a homeowner can stay safe in their house with a home air purifier.
The climate is not going to change in Atlanta, so make sure the right technology is taking care of you and your loved ones.
