  • Ways to help asthma-sufferers living with smokers

    Suffering from asthma symptoms while living with a smoker can be brutal, and although it's best for smokers to avoid smoking in a house occupied by someone with asthma, new studies suggest that High-Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, cleaners may significantly help asthma-sufferers living with smokers.

    A recent study at Johns Hopkins Children's Center looked at the effects of HEPA air cleaners among 115 children from inner-city Baltimore. The study went on for six months and found that children who used the HEPA cleaners showed improvements in their asthma symptoms.

    The benefit amounts to approximately 33 less days of symptoms a year, Arlene M. Butz, an asthma specialist at Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore, told Reuters Health. She also suggested that any person living in an apartment building with asthma, whether with a smoker or not, should consider an air purifier, as smoke elsewhere in the building can travel.

    Fresh Air Pro carries only the best air purifying systems, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This top-rated air purifier is ideal for those suffering with asthma or a wide range of allergens including pollen and dust.

  • Global warming may be to thank for your worsening ragweed allergy

    This fall, allergies are likely to be worse than ever. If you once suffered from mild allergies, expect them to be moderate, and if you had moderate allergies, you're probably in for severe allergies this season - at least that's what scientists from Rutgers University are saying.

    "Climate change appears to be associated with early pollen seasons that last longer, causing more people to suffer from pollen-induced allergies," explained lead researcher Dr. Leonard Bielory.

    Since allergy seasons are getting increasingly longer and worse, now is the time to make sure the air in your house is clean and free of allergens. One way to ensure your home is as hypoallergenic as possible is by using a top-of-the-line air purifier like those available through Fresh Air Pro.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas purifier not only relieves smoke, allergens, viruses and bacteria from the air in your home, it's also effective for those with chemical sensitivity. The whole family will be breathing clean, fresh air with IQAir GC MultiGas.

  • Allergy-proof alternatives to keeping your pet outside

    Not all pets are meant to be outdoor animals - in fact, few really are. Rather than consign your cat or dog to the yard, consider a few alternatives to keep your home pet-friendly as well as allergy-free.

    Although there's no conclusive evidence that hypoallergenic dogs and cats are 100 percent irritant-free, those who own breeds with less of a proclivity to shed or produce pet dander typically enjoy fewer sniffles and sneezes.

    If your shaggy pet is already a member of the family, you can help allergy-proof your home by keeping animals out of the bedroom, installing hardwood floors if possible and investing in a high-end air purifier such as those offered by Fresh Air Pro.

    Fresh Air Pro carries some of the best models on the market today, including the top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus. The state-of-the-art HyperHEPA filter is capable of filtering particles as small as .003 microns in size, which is 10 times smaller than what most standard HEPA models are capable of.

  • Understanding the difference between allergies and asthma

    Allergies occur when a person's immune system attacks harmless substances like pollen or pet dander. Asthma, although often triggered by allergies, is a blanket term used to describe a chronic respiratory disease in which the muscles surrounding the airway constrict and the lining of the airway becomes inflamed. This causes wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath.

    Some people have asthma and no allergy symptoms, but for many, allergies can exacerbate asthma symptoms. Those who suffer from allergy-induced asthma need to be particularly diligent in keeping their homes as allergen free as possible.

    One way to ensure a healthy home is using a high-quality air purifier like those offered by Fresh Air Pro. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is ideal for those with respiratory ailments like asthma. In addition to clearing the air of allergens like dust, pollen and pet dander, its HyperHEPA filters capture particles 0.003 microns in size, which is smaller than a virus.

    Nearly 85 percent of asthma attacks are triggered by irritants in the home such as dust mites, mold, pests and pets, according to a recent article in MSN Health. If you have asthma, an air purifier may be just what you need to control your symptoms and breathe comfortably.

  • Fall allergy facts and figures

    The number of Americans suffering from seasonal allergies is quickly increasing, and as fall approaches, many are looking for solutions and remedies to lessen their unbearable symptoms.

    With 60 million people in the United States currently diagnosed with allergies or asthma, it's one of the country's most common diseases (Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America). Though they're often overlooked as mere annoyances, allergies can have fatal consequences.

    For the 40 million Americans suffering from indoor/outdoor allergies, a good air purifier can be a life-saver. Among other top brand products, FreshAir Pro offers the Austin Air HealthMate Plus Purifier. It removes 99.97 percent of airborne particles .3 microns or larger, and is particularly helpful to those with chemical sensitivities and dust allergies.

    As fall approaches, keep in mind that 4 million workdays are missed each year in the United States due to hay fever, according to the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology. Do what you can to keep yourself healthy and productive this fall.

  • Purify your air to reduce dust allergy symptoms

    Dust mite allergies are a common problem, and because they're everywhere dust is, it can be difficult to avoid. In addition to causing other allergy symptoms, dust mites can actually exacerbate asthma.

    This fall, dust allergies and ragweed allergies may be worse than ever. A recent article in the New York Press explains that August is the time to start making your home more hypoallergenic so your child will be all set by the time fall hits.

    In addition to dusting your home often, invest in a high-end air purifier like those sold by Fresh Air Pro. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is often regarded as one of the best purifiers on the market and is helpful for those suffering from respiratory ailments such as allergy-induced asthma.

    Certain factors such as a change in weather, seasonal allergies and dust mites can be responsible for making your child's asthma worse this fall. However, you can be in control by keeping your house as dust-free as possible and purifying the air with IQAir HealthPro Plus.

  • Fighting fall allergies

    Summer is almost over, and as fall approaches, many allergy-sufferers are feeling the symptoms. Many regions across the United States have been hit with heavier rainfall at the end of summer, leading to increased weed growth. This could be bad news for allergy-sufferers.

    Michigan's Grand Rapids Press recently reported that ragweed pollen is expected to linger up to a month longer than it has in years past. This is largely due to global warming. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology estimates that about 36 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies, including those from ragweed pollen.

    Though you can't control global warming and outdoor allergies, you can change how they affect your home. Purchasing an air purifier from a reputable vendor like Fresh Air Pro is the best option to keep your home as allergen-free as possible. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one of the best purifiers on the market. It uses advanced micro and nano-particle filter technologies to remove over 99 percent of all particulate air pollutants, including common allergens.

    This fall, take control of your allergies with purifiers from Fresh Air Pro.

  • Vendors finding difficulty selling cigarettes with warning labels

    Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration pushed legislation that now forces tobacco manufacturers to list explicit health warnings on cigarette packs. However, not everyone is pleased with the development - especially those who still smoke.

    Many Americans choose to smoke cigarettes, and feel that their rights are being taken away by new legislation. For vendors attempting to sell cigarettes, the warning labels pose a problem as well, according to The Sun Herald.

    "It's another form of Big Daddy trying to tell people what to do," Frank Williams, an owner of three tobacco stores, told the news source. "They're just trying to tell people how to live their life."

    Several communities are instituting bans on smoking in public areas as well. Secondhand smoke can cause negative health effects similar to those seen in cigarette users.

    Many people use an air purifier with a HEPA filter to cope around smokers. This can remove the toxins from the cigarettes from the atmosphere.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Air Purifier is growing in popularity among those who want to avoid secondhand smoke as well. Its HyperHEPA filter can eliminate irritating particles in up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Ragweed begins to thrive in Michigan after heavy rains

    Although the worst of pollen season might be over, allergy sufferers still have another concern looming over the horizon: ragweed. This irritant is known to cause just as much misery to people as pollen, and it can be worsened by climate conditions on an annual basis.

    Recently, Michigan went from drought-like conditions to being drenched with rain, according to MLive.com. In July, the region received almost seven inches of rain, which is almost four inches above the average. As a result, plants have been blooming and releasing those pesky spores that cause many allergy sufferers misery.

    Each ragweed plant can produce up to 1 billion grains of allergens, making it one of the toughest plants to handle throughout the year. However, allergy sufferers are finding new ways to combat their systems as the seasons change.

    An air purifier is one way that many individuals choose to fight allergy patients. A HEPA filter can remove allergens from the atmosphere, making it easier to breathe.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one system that many people turn to for relief. Its HyperHEPA filter can eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. The IQAir HealthPro Plus may also reduce the chances of airborne illnesses by removing bacteria from the air.

  • Maine to become first state to ban smoking in rental properties

    Although it's a renowned fact that smoking can cause a number of serious health complications, many people tend to overlook the effects of secondhand smoke. When inhaled, the chemicals in cigarettes can cause similar ailments to those seen in smokers, such as cancer.

    In an effort to reduce the levels of secondhand smoke that is inhaled across Maine, the state will become the first in the nation to ban smoking in apartments. Beginning in 2012, Maine will take up a policy that prohibits people from smoking in rental properties, according to the Village Soup.

    "We know that in Maine over 75 percent of tenants surveyed want to live in smoke-free housing. Our goal is to have the supply of smoke-free housing meet that demand," Nancy Laite, Healthy Maine Program Specialist, told the news source.

    However, not all regions of the country are as active in protecting tenants as Maine. An air purifier can help clear the air in an apartment where an individual is forced to live around smokers.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Air Purifier can be especially effective in helping tenants breathe easier. It has a HyperHEPA filter that can remove toxins from cigarette smoke from up to 900 square feet of space.
