How my art affects air quality

A few days ago I moved into a smaller apartment. The section is still entirely nice, it just makes for tighter quarters, and much less windows. I didn’t know this would be a problem, until I was trying to get back to work on an oil painting I had started before moving in here. Even with the door to the studio room open, I was still getting lightheaded, and but I couldn’t paint somewhere else in the apartment! I usually paint in this spare room so I can let the paintings dry in a room that is closed off from my cats. Though the room has central air conditioner, I’m a little scared to turn it up plus run up my utility bill just to maybe increase the airflow in that particular room. There wasn’t even a guarantee it would work, then finally, I asked a few fellow artist friends of mine, and they advocated I get an air cleaner for my place. An air purification plan works to not only collect dust plus pet hair, but it entirely works to take out a bunch of toxic chemicals plus pollutants from the air. I took care to buy an air cleaner that uses two different filters. One is a charcoal filter plus a HEPA air filter. The 2 filters work to both trap substantial particulates appreciate pet dander plus dirt, while the HEPA  air filter works to take out the finer contaminants from the air. This, with my central cooling system running its official amount, has made it so I can use my oil paints again separate from feeling appreciate I’m choking on the fumes. A petite loft will not stop me from pursuing my art!
