  • Plants make it possible to grow your own fresh air

    By now, it's well apparent that plants have a positive and tangible impact on the quality of indoor air as well as the moods of surrounding inhabitants. But what if you took that idea and created a systematic (and quite green) solution?

    New Delhi researcher Kamal Meattle did just that, so much so that his office building, where he implemented the system, was deemed by the Indian government as the healthiest building in New Delhi, with increased human productivity of 20 percent (to see him explain why, check out this video).

    Meattle's process involves setting up four areca palms per person, as they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Six to eight mother-in-law's tongues should be counted per head as well, termed "bedroom plants" since they do the same work as areca palms during the night. Combined with money plants, which remove formaldehyde and other volatile chemicals from the air, these plants all work together to create some of the freshest, most self-sustaining indoor air around.

    Can't imagine having that many plants around? Kill several birds with one stone by installing a high-quality air purifying system in your home. The top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus is the perfect solution for health-conscious individuals who wish to breathe air that's virtually contaminant-free.

  • Up close and personal with air pollution particles

    It's been widely accepted that air pollution is bad for our health, but it hasn't been easy - even for scientists - to determine exactly why.

    However, a recent study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives found a link between diabetes patients' responses to air pollution and the way a normal respiratory system would function, University of Rochester Medical Center News reports. In the study, diabetes patients breathing in ultrafine particles found in polluted air experienced an activation of their blood platelets, a response which could increase the risk of heart disease.

    "Our findings indicate that when someone is exposed to air pollution, the platelets become activated, which would make them more likely to trigger a heart attack," researcher Mark Frampton, M.D., said.

    Although there are measures that health-conscious individuals may take to avoid pollution-heavy areas outside, much greater control can be exercised over one's indoor air environment. Purchasing one of the top-market air purifiers available from FreshAirPro is the most effective means to clear pollutants and other airborne contaminants from the air that you breathe.

  • Simple tips to help you cleanse your home environment

    There's more to home cleaning than mopping and sweeping. Sometimes, the most contaminated areas of our homes are the ones we don't see, and poor indoor air quality can have a major effect on both our respiratory health and our state of well-being.

    AOL Health suggests taking off your shoes before entering the house, using plant-based cleaning products, steaming floors with hot water, using toxin-free paints, using herbal laundry soaps, drinking certified filtered water and ditching the scented candles and air fresheners.

    However, all of these steps can only go so far. An even more effective way to detoxify your indoor air environment is to install a professional-grade air purifying system.

    For the best technology on the market today, look to the top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus. IQAir combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively remove over 99 percent of all particulate matter, including dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold, smoke, gases, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Plus, its HyperHEPA filter stage is the most advanced filter of its class, able to capture particles ten times smaller than standard HEPA models.

  • April showers bring May flowers (and mold, bacteria and other undesirables)

    People around the world are rejoicing that it's finally spring, as the promise of warmer weather makes it that much easier to endure the unstable temperatures, allergies and heavy rains that the season is typically known for.

    However, spring precipitation can have other far-reaching consequences beyond just another unpleasant commute. Lots of rain plus warmer temperatures creates conditions that are ripe for the proliferation of mold, bacteria and other things that are generally best left out of our homes.

    If your home is susceptible to mold, it's important to repair cracked sealing and use ventilation in rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom.

    For a solution that most effectively manages mold build-up, a high-quality air purifying system is well worth the investment. A top-rated, best-selling make such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus is fully equipped with advanced filtration technologies to remove over 99 percent of all particulate matter as well as harmful gases and chemicals. The HealthPro Plus is an excellent solution for allergy-sufferers, those with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) or anyone else with an inclination to improve their respiratory health.

  • Scientists develop new tool for measuring indoor air quality

    Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Virginia Tech have developed a new measurement tool that can test for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) when assessing the air quality of any indoor space.

    According to Sify News, testing of the device yielded much higher accuracy than those derived from standard technology, which is significantly more costly and time-consuming.

    With this latest development, homeowners will be that much closer to being able to rest assured that their indoor air quality is top-notch and, well, air-tight. But even if you can accurately gauge the contamination levels present in your air, it's still up to you to do something about them.

    Installing a professional-grade air purifying system in your home, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, is the most effective means for achieving healthy, pollutant-free air. The HealthPro Plus comes with four advanced filtration techniques to effectively remove over 99 percent of all particulate matter and target harmful chemicals and gases as well.

  • Holding a candle to indoor air quality

    Many people love nothing more than to slip into something comfortable when they get home and light a few heady, fragrant candles. However, what some of us may not know is that not all of these scented waxes are necessarily good for our lungs.

    "Many candles and scented products also contain chemicals that companies aren't required to disclose on the label," according to ABC affiliate KATU. "Some labels simply list 'fragrance' as an ingredient without giving any specifics...some contain chemicals called phthalates, which helps smells linger...[and may] cause birth defects and reproductive problems."

    If you're concerned about your respiratory health, consider asking yourself if the reason you light candles is to mask other unpleasant smells.

    A better choice for your health (and the freshness of your indoor air) is an air purifying system from FreshAirPro. The top-rated, best-selling IQAir GC MultiGas contains an advanced filter cartridge design to specifically target harmful and unpleasant chemicals and gases in the air.

  • Allergy strategies for the exercise buffs

    Now that spring is here, going outdoors will have all kinds of new meanings for everyone, but especially those of us who love to walk or jog outside.

    June M. Lay, M.S. of Health News Digest thinks it's important to choose less intensive exercises on days where the pollen is really running rampant.

    "Exercise such as running with a high degree of movement, which significantly increases our breathing rate, also increases the rate of airborne pollens that we inhale," Lay suggests. "Let's reduce the intensity, or stick to indoor running and/or more allergy friendly exercises on these type of days. We can exercise indoors with yoga, swimming, Tai Chi, and one of my favorites, weight training. Let's exercise outside early in the day when the pollen count is usually lower."

    These are all effective ways to reduce our exposure to allergens, but those looking to create a fool-proof indoor environment should consider installing one of the professional-grade air purifying systems carried by FreshAirPro in their homes. Not only will it make any and all indoor activities more enjoyable, but it will significantly improve the respiratory health of all who live in your home.

  • Pollutants and your lungs: A microscopic breakdown

    While recent studies have revealed that air pollution is the leading cause of heart attacks, it may be difficult to gauge just how small the particles are that can lead to bodily harm, or which environments affect us the worst.

    According to the Daily Mail, spending time in traffic usually presents the largest risk factor, and it's generally recommended to find ways to spend less time on congested thoroughfares.

    Meanwhile, there are measures you can take to control the indoor air quality of your home. Installing an air purifying system is the most effective line of defense against pollution, allergens and a range of other respiratory ailments.

    Polluted air contains particles that are less than 10 microns wide, which is small enough to enter the lungs and cause inflammation, the news source reports. The IQAir HealthPro Plus, on other hand, comes with a HyperHEPA filter, the most advanced filter of its class, which is capable of tackling particulate matter as small as .003 microns in size. What's the advantage? You do the math.

  • Arm yourself against ragweed allergies (no matter how long they stick around this year)

    Of the countless people who suffer from allergies each year, a good amount fall prey to ragweed, what Ohama.com calls "the most debilitating of plant allergens."

    According to the news source, roughly 10 percent of Americans are ragweed-sensitive, and much to the chagrin of this segment of the population, ragweed season is only getting longer. Some areas of the country have come to experience at least 11 more days of annual misery over the last 15 years or so.

    There's little we can do in light of the changing seasons, but there is a good amount of control we can exercise over our immediate home environment.

    Installing a professional-grade air purifying system is a top-line defense against ragweed, pollen, pet dander, mold and a range of other allergens and airborne contaminants. An advanced model, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, has the capacity to effectively filter over 99 percent of particulate matter while simultaneously removing harmful chemicals and odors.

  • How an air purifier actually works to alleviate allergy symptoms

    Many of us with allergy symptoms may already know that installing a professional-grade air purifying system in our homes is among one of the most effective ways to breathe easy. However, some may still be unsure as to the reasons behind why they work.

    "Our homes are like enclosed spaces where we breathe in...the same air on a continuous basis," UK News Reporter explains. "Attacks that can [happen] very quickly may be caused by some of the common things found at home such as the dust and dust mites. The function of the allergy relief electronic air cleaner or air purifier is to purify the circulating air which you are breathing and eradicate all the floating particles which are behind the attacks."

    That being said, there's more than one way for a machine to do so. Many top-quality purifiers, such as the ones carried by FreshAirPro, combine two or more filtration technologies to deliver stellar performance.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one such machine - with four different techniques working together, this machine excels among the rest in eradicating over 99.9 percent of all airborne contaminants including dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mold, gases, odors, smoke and more. Its success is largely due to the activated carbon stage which effectively strips harmful chemicals and gases and its HyperHEPA filter, which is capable of catching particles 10 times smaller than most leading HEPA brands.
