Study: HEPA air purifiers good for the heart

Homeowners considering an air purifying system as a future purchase have a new reason to look forward to clean indoor air.

A recent study found that HEPA air purifiers reduced indoor air pollution by as much as 60 percent, which reduces the risk of heart disease as well as allergies, asthma and lung cancer, the Baltimore Sun reports.

According to the news source, researchers evaluated the air quality in 45 Canadian homes where indoor air pollution was prevalent due to the use of wood-burning stoves. Based on air quality readings, as well as blood and urine samples from the residents, it was apparent that on days when the purifiers were in use, the pollution levels dropped by 60 percent and residents' blood vessels had improved function.

Those who want the best in HEPA technology should opt for an IQAir HealthPro Plus. It combines four advanced filtration technologies, including a HyperHEPA filter, the most advanced filter of its class. The HyperHEPA filter can filter molecules as small as .003 microns in size, compared to the .03 micron capacity of other leading brands.
