  • Clean Air act protecting more asthma sufferers from pollutants

    The Clean Air Act was created to protect individuals from harmful pollutants in the environment, but disagreements in Congress are threatening to void the protective legislation, according to the Midland Daily News. In portions of the country where asthma is a growing concern, such as Michigan, this could further health complications and hospital visits.

    "For healthcare professionals, the public policy stakes here are enormous and painfully clear," Brenda Afzal, U.S. Climate Policy Coordinator for Heath Care Without Harm, told the news source. "According to a recent Environmental Protection Agency analysis, the Clean Air Act amendments of 1990 currently prevent 1.7 million cases of asthma exacerbation."

    Asthma can result in wheezing and a dangerous shortness of breath in individuals who suffer from the condition. Air purifiers can help remove pollutants from rooms and help asthma patients breathe easier.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers. The HyperHEPA filter can remove dangerous air particles and bacteria from up to 900 square feet. It can control the amount of complex air pollution that travels throughout a household and make the air safe to breathe for those who suffer from severe respiratory conditions.

  • Freshening versus purifying: What's really better for your air?

    The popularity of indoor air freshening products has surged in recent years, thanks especially to innovations such as plug-in candles and odor-neutralizing spray. But are these easy fixes really getting to the heart of the problem?

    "Air fresheners almost never 'freshen' the air," Eco Childs Play reports. "They just mask odors, either with synthetic fragrance or by interfering with your ability to smell by coating your nasal passages with an oil film or releasing a nerve-deadening agent. In rare cases, they will actually break down the offensive odor."

    According to the news source, many air freshening products contain toxic chemicals that can trigger headaches, dizziness, coughing, asthma and other respiratory grievances.

    A much more worthwhile and effective solution would be to install an air purifying system. FreshAirPro carries the leading brands on the market today, equipped to handle a full range of indoor air problems. The combined use of various filter cartridge designs in most of these trusted models effectively removes over 99 percent of all particulate matter from the air, and many machines use activated carbon to strip the air of harmful chemicals and gases.

  • Make clean air a priority on your spring cleaning list

    Lots of people are opening their doors, breaking out their brooms and dusting off their couch covers in time for spring. But while your spring cleaning checklist may be quite extensive, there's one important item that will make all the difference when it comes to how clean your home actually feels.

    While it's certainly important to sweep, dust, vacuum and mop, a professional-grade air purifying system can effectively eliminate more than 99 percent of the stray particles that contribute to routine messes in the first place. More importantly, clean air provides a noticeable freshness to your environment that will significantly enhance each cleaning day to come.

    That's because high-efficiency models, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, combine multiple filtration technologies to deliver the best possible results. The HealthPro Plus is one of the market's best-rated, top-selling products thanks to its four different filtration levels, including its HyperHEPA filter and activated carbon stage.

    The HyperHEPA filter is the most advanced filter of its class, able to remove particles up to 10 times smaller than standard HEPA models. Harmful chemicals, gases and unwanted odors won't stand a chance against the activated carbon, considered widely to be the most effective means of eliminating these contaminants.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A 1-2-3 guide to maintaining the freshest indoor air for your home

    In light of the end of February, which, if you didn't know, was celebrated across America as the fourth annual National Care About Your Indoor Air Month, here's a basic pocket guide to make sure you achieve (and maintain) the freshest possible air for your home.

    According to Benzinga.com, it's essential to identify the sources of indoor pollution, eliminate or reduce them, and to take steps to maintain air cleanliness. The second step, the news source reports, often involves dehumidifying, sealing cracks, fixing gas appliances and using allergy-friendly carpeting and bedding.

    Once any urgent concerns have been taken care of, the most effective means toward achieving the third step is by installing a professional-grade air purifying system.

    While the news source recommends using this in conjunction with a HEPA vacuum cleaner, the majority of FreshAirPro's top-rated brands are equipped with HEPA or HyperHEPA filters to effectively remove more than 99 percent of all particulate matter. A top-selling machine, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, is an efficient means of removing a full range of airborne contaminants.

  • Debunking Legionnaire's disease (and what happened at the Playboy Mansion)

    While it's true that Legionnaire's disease hasn't received this much media attention since the landmark 1976 outbreak that left 221 ill and 34 dead, the same bacteria that recently caused a stink at the Playboy Mansion affects thousands of Americans each year.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that between 8,000 and 18,000 people in the U.S. are hospitalized per annum due to Legionnaire's Disease, though according to Environmental-Expert.com, this might not be an accurate portrait of the problem, as experts believe that most cases go undiagnosed.

    According to the news source, the bacteria that causes the disease can be found in water (as was later discovered at Hugh Hefner's palace), but the actual transmission occurs when people breathe in contaminated vapors.

    Perhaps it wouldn't have hurt to install an air purifying system or two at the Mansion. Those who wish to help prevent such outbreaks and improve their overall respiratory health have every reason to look into a medical-grade purifier from FreshAirPro, many of which are proven to remove over 99 percent of particulate matter from the air as well as a range of harmful viruses and bacteria.

  • Houseplants linked to improved mood, air quality

    Recent research has found that houseplants lift peoples' moods in addition to being extremely efficient at purifying indoor air through their conversion of carbon dioxide into oxygen.

    "All plants add oxygen and create a healthier indoor environment," Chris Raimondi of the Professional Landcare Network told the Shreveport Times. "In addition, some plants provide the added benefit of removing toxins from the air."

    According to the news source, plants can remove as much as 20 percent of dust from the air by emitting water vapor.

    Those looking for an even more efficient method of purifying the air should invest in a professional grade air purifying system. A machine equipped with a HyperHEPA filter, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, can eliminate well over 99 percent of all particulate matter from the air.

    The HealthPro Plus combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively remove dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold, smoke, gases, odors and other airborne contaminants.
