  • EPA requires new limitations on mercury emissions

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created new regulations that set a federal standard on mercury and other toxic emissions in an effort to improve air quality on December 21.

    The new rules set specific emission limits for all existing and future coal plants. In regional areas that house coal plants, homeowners may wish to invest in a medical-grade home air purifier to assist in reducing air pollutants in the home.

    To assist plants in meeting the new standard, the EPA will provide technical and economical strategies in hopes of achieving successful reductions of mercury and other neurotoxins. Mercury is proven to be especially harmful to children and pregnant women.

    "These standards rank among the three or four most significant environmental achievements in the EPA's history," John Walke, clean air director of the National Resources Defense Council, told CNN. "This rule-making represents a generational achievement."

    Being toted as a critical update to the Clean Air Act, the new regulations are getting strong support from many environmentalists and health organizations. Home owners looking to improve air quality in their homes until the new regulations are firmly in place in three years may wish to look into the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier.

  • Medical-grade air purifiers can help you breathe easier after quitting smoking

    One of the more frustrating parts of being a smoker is that after a while, breathing can become difficult. Even the slightest exertion can result in being out of breath.

    This problem is generally a result of the irritation inside the lungs that is caused by the inhalation of smoke particles and toxins. This can be one of the main reasons people decide to finally buckle down and quit cigarettes.

    The problem is that after quitting, your lungs are often still irritated. Though you've stopped putting constant toxins into your lungs, it can be frustrating to sit and wait for function to fully return. Though it typically takes a few months for your lung functions to return to normal, you can help by investing in a medical-grade air purifier.

    The powerful filtration will not only work quickly to remove any remnants of tobacco smoke lingering through your home, but the cleaner air will be good for your lungs, especially while you're trying to improve their function.

  • Kennecott copper mine causes huge problems for clean air

    In Utah, a variety of groups have introduced a lawsuit against Kennecott Utah Copper Mine, claiming that the company had knowingly broken laws outlined in the Clean Air Act in regards to their air pollution.

    The filers of the suit, including a society of physicians, claim that the mine is responsible for nearly a third of the air pollution in the Salt Lake area. In 1994, the mine agreed to laws that were enacted to keep production under 150.5 tons a year. This regulation was enforced to minimize the dust thrown into the air from mining, as well as reduce emissions from the heavy mining machinery and transportation vehicles.

    While the mine has received permission from the state to increase production drastically, the suit claims that these production increases were never cleared on a federal level, or with the EPA, and that the mine has broken clean air restrictions as a result. The groups filing the suit hope to see a reduction to safe production levels, and monetary awards to be used for cleaning the air and environmental safeguards.

    While the lawsuit is decided, the air remains polluted. If you worry about the effect of constant air pollution on you and your family, invest in a medical-grade air purifier to filter out toxins and keep the air in your home healthy.

  • Help your child's asthma with the IQAir Perfect16 Whole House Air Purifier

    As far as chronic conditions go, asthma is one of the more easily manageable ones, but that doesn't mean you should just accept it. Asthma works by constantly swelling and inflaming the airways, causing the sufferer to experience difficult breathing and wheezing. This can become particularly dangerous when common irritants are inhaled, as it may cause a reaction that further restricts airways. This can lead to oxygen deprivation and is often treated through inhaled steroids.

    Asthma can be a result of intense allergies, a severe respiratory infection and occasionally extreme amounts of allergens or pollutants. If your child suffers from asthma, you know that out in the world, there is little you can do to ease her symptoms - but your home is a different story.

    Consider investing in an IQAir Perfect16 Whole House Air Purifier. This air purification system is installed within the vents that circulate air around your home, such as air conditioning and heating vents. It has a perfect industry rating for air cleaning and can improve the air inside your home by up to 90 percent.

    This clean air will surely allow your asthma-stricken loved one to breathe easier, knowing her home is filled with fresh air.

  • Invest in an air purifier this holiday season

    The holidays are often a time of family gathering and togetherness, but the gathering of large groups of people in a small space can wreak havoc on your air quality.

    The aromas of many different foods will float through the air, possibly disturbing those with a distaste for certain items, or the number of candles and air fresheners used to keep the whole house smelling clean throughout the day can begin to cause sneezing and irritation.

    Smoking is another problem to worry about. You may not smoke, but the secondhand smoke from your aunt can be just as dangerous to the family. Even forcing the smokers to do their business outside doesn't save those inside from feeling the effects, as the smoke and odor may drift in through the cracks.

    Rarely used fireplaces or wood-burning stoves are often lit during these gatherings, whether to provide extra warmth or just to add to the decor. The smoke they create, especially if rarely used and cleaned, can be harmful as well.

    Consider combating these holiday problems by investing in a medical-grade air purifier. Their powerful filtering technology can keep the air inside your home fresh and healthy all winter long.

  • Best home for asthma-stricken children involves powerful air filter

    Habitat for Humanity recently teamed up with healthcare company Merck's Build Smart, Breathe Easier program to create a special asthma-friendly home for a family whose two young daughters have both been hospitalized numerous times because of their asthma. Many of the steps taken to create this home involved working to reduce airborne particles that can exacerbate severe asthma.

    These changes involved installing hard flooring rather than carpeting for easier cleaning, special allergen-free paint and most importantly, powerful air filters to keep ventilation from bringing in pollution or toxins from outside.

    If you have a child with asthma and you'd like to keep your home safe, consider installing an IQAir Perfect16 Whole House Air Purifier, available from FreshAirPro. This medical-grade air purifier boasts the highest possible industry rating for whole house air cleaning and filters 100 percent of all moving air in the home.

    It removes up to 95 percent of most irritants, including bacterias, mold spores, pollens, pollutants and a variety of other airborne toxins. To protect your family and keep the air in your home cleaner than it ever has been, look to the medical-grade purifiers we sell at FreshAirPro.

  • Invest in an IQAir Perfect16 Whole House Air Purifier to keep your family healthy this winter

    As the winter draws nearer and the weather grows colder, many people spend more time wrapped in blankets on the couch, savoring the warmth and comfort of the indoors. But with the entire family spending more and more time in the house, they must pay more attention to the quality of the air they're breathing.

    Homes can quickly fill with allergens like dust, especially when accompanied by pet dander and hair (and the growing amount of dead skin cells left in the home). While staying indoors may feel great for your comfort, it may be worse for your lungs. Allergens and toxins remain airborne and may even have built up in your heating ducts, which encourages it to spread even more when the hot air is constantly blowing.

    To combat these lung irritants, consider investing in an IQAir Perfect16 Whole House Air Purifier. While many purifiers may work for small areas like an office or a bedroom, the IQAir is a house-wide system that cleans the air being circulated through your heating or air conditioning system. With its low air resistance and medical-grade filtration, the only difference you'll notice in your home is how easy it is to breathe.

  • Chinese air pollution the cause of protests

    This week, air pollution in China became a national concern as heavy smog in Beijing grounded hundreds of flights due to visibility issues. The U.S. Embassy in China now routinely takes samples and studies of the air quality for study, and the information is available through their Twitter feed. Their readings during the worst of this smog crisis were literally so high that the chart the American EPA uses to classify pollution-related health risks didn't have a rating high enough.

    In the meantime, Chinese government readings were significantly lower due to the fact that they have created a different scale that ignores many of the pollution-causing particles and only measures certain pollutants. This allows their readings to be significantly lower.

    While the average Chinese citizen has no access to Twitter, the embassy's readings have been reposted in so many places that the news was received by the public and has been the cause of a rising online protest.

    If nothing else, this event shows that all forms of pollutants are dangerous, regardless of context. If you want to protect your family, whether traveling overseas or just in your own home, invest in a medical-grade air purifier and keep the air in your home fresh, clean and healthy.

  • Austin continues the battle against secondhand smoke

    Over the past few years, smoking has become more and more of a hot button issue. The debate between smokers and non-smokers mostly consists of a back and forth over rights, and bans on smoking are only growing stricter.

    Austin is one city that has decided to move forward with its attempt to protect citizens from unwanted secondhand smoke. Of course, arguments have arisen, with smokers claiming they don't deserve to be treated like second-class citizens because of their addiction and everyone else rebutting that secondhand smoke is a danger to everyone, and therefore must be controlled as much as possible.

    Among other changes, Austin has instituted bans within 15 feet of public areas, including bus stops and parks. Austin Community College has taken it a step further in an attempt to become a completely smoke-free campus.

    The dangers of secondhand smoking have been researched and are proven to be quite severe. If you want to protect yourself or your family from secondhand smoke, consider investing in a medical-grade air purifier. With this powerful air-cleaning technology, you can remove up to 99.5 percent of toxins from the air in your home.

  • Carbon emissions continue to climb even higher

    There was a brief period of hope for environmentalists during the worst of the recession, when carbon emissions fell for the first time since scientists began their scrutiny. The 7 percent drop during 2009 was not to be continued, however, as findings about the 2010 carbon emissions indicate a rise of 5.9 percent.

    Some experts believe this to be the largest single increase in carbon emissions since the beginning of the industrial revolution. Since then, the amount of carbon forced into the atmosphere has risen steadily, but such a large jump within a single year has some people worried - and perhaps rightfully so.

    Carbon emissions are a large culprit for the global warming phenomenon, and the constant increase may make repairing the planet's ecosystem a near impossibility. Attempts to change the emission guidelines have been consistently met with opposition from those concerned with the potential cost of the change.

    Still, while politicians debate, carbon continues to increase. To ensure that your home remains free of these pollutants, invest in a medical-grade air purifier. The filtering technology in these powerful purifiers can keep the air in your home or office fresher than it has been in years, and help protect you from the effects of rising emissions indoors.
