  • Washington County officials set air quality goals

    The Southern Utah Public Health Department and the City of St. George have combined efforts to measure and set air quality standards to avoid involvement with the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA ), reports The Spectrum.

    "It behooves us to stay in compliance rather than wait to have the EPA come in an tell us how we're going to get back into compliance," David Blodgett, director of the Southwest Utah Public Health Department, told the news source.

    By combining resources, efforts and funding to prevent a decline in air quality, the agencies are more likely to avoid future mass decline in community health. Poor air quality is linked to compromising the immune system, reduced lung function, negatively impacting those with pre-existing cardiovascular or lung diseases and other respiratory conditions such as asthma.

    Homeowners concerned with the health effects of poor air quality can invest in IQAir Air Purifiers. The home air purifiers don't just protect against pollution, other potential toxins such as mold and dust that are commonly found in houses as they age are also filtered out.

    Invest in your health by supporting cleaning air initiatives and owning a home air purifier.

  • Western New York receives federal grant for air pollution cleanup

    The Clean Air Coalition of Western New York received a $100,000 federal grant to take control of air pollution in the town of Tonawanda, NY, reports the Buffalo News. Funding comes from the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) program.

    "We clearly know that Tonawanda has an air pollution issue," Erin Heaney, executive director of the coalition told the news source.

    According to the EPA, Tonawanda features some of the highest concentration of air-regulated facilities in the state. Homeowners in the region should install air purifiers in their homes to reduce exposure to airborne toxins. The grant from the EPA provides just enough to research the troubling air quality levels. Heaney claimed were present in the community such as five pollutants that exceed state health guidelines, reports the news source.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus HEPA Air Purifiers provide excellent filtration to reduce toxin levels in the home - limiting homeowners and their families' exposure to potential danger.

  • Cross-State Air Pollution Rule enters U.S. court docket

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urged the U.S. Appeals Court in Washington to uphold the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, reports Bloomberg. The EPA regulation, which imposed caps on sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide in 27 states, was put on hold by the court in December after more than three dozen lawsuits were filed to challenge the rule.

    "The transport rule represents the culmination of decades of congressional, administrative and judicial efforts to fashion a workable, comprehensive regulatory approach to interstate air pollution issues that have huge public health implications," the 116-page filing states, according to the news source. 

    A medical grade home air purifier can provide peace of mind by limiting exposure to harmful air pollutants. While the new regulation is under review by the courts, homeowners are stuck breathing in smog filled with nitrogen oxide.

    Emissions are crossing state lines and spreading. Homeowners worried over the potential negative health effects of breathing in toxic chemicals should consider the benefit of a home air purifier such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier.
