Air Purifiers

  • Keep your air pollutant-free for healthy genes

    Past studies have found that air pollution can actually cause DNA damage. This is bad news for those of us living in today's industrialized, polluted world. The good new is, air purifiers can actually help.

    Toxic airborne particles contribute to a number of diseases, from asthma to heart disease. HEPA filters, however, can block these particulates and clean environmentally polluted air, making it safer for us to breathe.

    In a 2004 study led by James Quinn, two sets of mice were tested, one that breathed polluted air and one that breathed HEPA-cleaned air, the Associated Press reports. Those who breathed the HEPA-filtered air had a 52 percent smaller chance of passing on genetic mutations to their offspring than those who breathed the outside air.

    Fresh Air Pro carries the highest-quality air purifiers, including the top-of-the-line IQAir GC VOC. It's specifically designed to control Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and paticulate contaminants. Help protect yourself and your future children with an air purifier from Fresh Air Pro.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Flu vaccine being released to the public before autumn

    Many people still have summer on their mind, but with fall right around the corner, it's never too soon to be thinking about the cooler weather - specifically, the germs that come with the changing of the seasons.

    Without the proper precautionary measures, individuals can find themselves sick in bed as the weather changes as the flu becomes more widespread. In an effort to make sure as many people are vaccinated against common viruses as possible, Walgreens recently announced that it is offering its seasonal flu shot as of this month, according to the Associated Press.

    Autumn may still seem like some time away, but medical experts are advocating for vaccinations after the 2009 H1N1 flu outbreak that sent many to the hospital. This year's flu shot can offer protection against the H1N1 flu, as well as the influenza B virus.

    Individuals who want to breathe easier at home can also consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can help remove bacteria from the atmosphere.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one system that can be beneficial as well. Its HyperHEPA filter can eliminate bacteria from the air and possibly reduce the chance of developing an illness.

  • Air purifiers may benefit children living with smokers

    It can be an uphill battle for individuals to quit smoking, even if they have their child's best interest at heart. In turn, kids may show signs of suffering from secondhand smoke, which can cause a number of health complications.

    Recently, researchers examined the effects that smoking has on children, according to The study, which was published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, showed that children with asthma may suffer from secondhand smoke more than those who do not have the condition. However, an air purifier can reduce asthmatic symptoms in a household.

    Approximately 21 million children are regularly exposed to secondhand smoke in their own homes in the U.S. When inhaled, secondhand smoke can increase the chances of health complications, including cancer.

    An air purifier can remove toxic chemicals from secondhand smoke through a HEPA filter. This can make it easier to breathe for children who are suffering from asthma.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier can be especially effective in reducing the number of chemicals from secondhand smoke in the air, such as styrene, skatole and phenol. Its HyperHEPA filter can trap ultrafine particles that may cause airborne illnesses as well.

  • Bring fresh air into your home this summer

    Now that summer has started to roll in, the warm weather is trapping more irritating particles in the air, making it difficult for allergy and asthma-sufferers to breathe. However, there are a number of ways to improve the air quality in your home, according to ABC News.

    First, remember to clean the filter in your air conditioner before installing it in your window this summer. After sitting in an attic all winter, the air conditioner can trap dust and blow it into your lungs if the filter is not cleaned.

    Next, try to vacuum and mop regularly. This can get rid of any irritating allergens that are dragged into your home from outside. Particles are known to especially stick to carpets and rugs.

    Finally, invest in an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove particles from the air that can cause allergic reactions and irritation in individuals with respiratory illnesses.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is ideal for those who want to eliminate ultrafine particles from the air that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size, such as dust, pollen and pet dander. Its HyperHEPA filter can remove contaminants from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • World Asthma Day pushes for more research of the disease

    In an effort to raise awareness of asthma and other respiratory complications, World Asthma Day 2011 was held on May 3 to support further research into the condition. Approximately 77 percent of individuals who suffer from severe asthma have been hospitalized at least once due to the ailment. More information on asthma may be able to help patients cope with the disease better throughout their lifetime.

    "There is still no cure for asthma," says Tom Flanagan, chair of Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America national board of directors. "I think some people forget that asthma still kills over 4,000 people each year and it's a reminder that more work needs to be done."

    Individuals who suffer from asthma and need to maintain air quality throughout their homes to breathe easily may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. A device that operates with a HEPA filter can remove particles from the air that complicate breathing in people with respiratory conditions.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is one product that can increase the quality of life for individuals with asthma. The HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size. This includes smoke, dust, pollen and other irritants.
