HEPA filters have recently commanded national attention for their scientifically-tested relationship with improved cardiovascular health, prompting happy customers to testify that their air purifying machines are delivering tangible results.
"The apartment is perfectly clean and by evening time, if we keep the windows open, there's soot," HEPA user Ruben Giron told CBS New York. "There's a black film that we see within a few hours."
The black film that Giron and many other customers might see actually contains harmful particles that they would otherwise be breathing every day. Such pollutants can increase heart rate and blood pressure and lead to a number of respiratory ailments.
Equipping your home with a professional-grade air purifying system is a top-line defense against airborne contaminants.
The IQAir HealthPro Plus beats standard HEPA models with its HyperHEPA filter, which is designed to target particles as small as .003 microns in size, 10 times smaller than those captured by regular HEPA filters. Additionally, the HealthPro Plus is equipped with activated carbon to eliminate harmful gases and odors.
