Air Purifiers for Allergies
If you suffer from allergies, you understand the value of clean air. Most people associate pollution with outdoor air, but since the EPA deemed indoor air pollution a serious public health issue more attention has been devoted to the quality of air in our homes. One of the best ways to escape allergy symptoms is by using an air purifier in your home. In fact, the EPA recommends air purifiers are part of their threefold strategy for better indoor air quality—the other two strategies are Source Control (i.e. get rid of the source of allergens) and adequate ventilation (exchanging stale indoor air with filtered air from outside.
Doctors recommend people with severe allergies use a HEPA air purifier to filter the air in their homes. A HEPA filter is a mechanical filter that captures at least 99.97% of every particle down to 0.3 microns. These high-efficiency particle arrestors are designed to trap allergens and other irritants that aggravate allergies, and will produce a dramatic improvement on the quality of air in your home.
