  • 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.

  • New study reveals more about the spread of flu

    While many of us are in the practice of washing our hands often and coughing into our sleeves, there appears to be more to preventing the spread of the flu virus.

    Virginia Tech researcher Linsey Marr determined that the flu could indeed be spread simply by breathing the same air as a sick person. Marr and her team of researchers placed air filters around several pubic establishments and later evaluated the filters at the lab, WDBJ7.com reports.

    "The concentrations are high enough that it is certainly possible that you could go into a room where someone has been sick and been spreading viruses and you could just breathe that air and potentially get the flu," Marr told the news source.

    Of course, this also proves that air filters can be a highly effective means of preventing the spread of airborne illnesses.

    Look to any of FreshAirPro's professional-grade air purifying systems for cutting-edge technology that is built to effectively tackle airborne viruses and bacteria as well as a range of other airborne contaminants.

  • How an indoor air purifier could address a major environmental threat

    It's no big secret that indoor air pollution is a health threat, but many people may be unaware that the Environmental Protection Agency actually registers it as one of the top five environmental threats in the United States.

    According to Idaho's KPVI News 6, indoor air pollution is typically caused by pets, carpeting, cleaning products and combustion fuels that heat the home. These can all combine to trigger health reactions such as watery eyes, scratchy throats and runny noses.

    Those who are interested in preventing these undesirable effects will find that a professional grade air purifying system not only delivers the freshest possible indoor air quality, but a marked improvement in health as well.

    Health-conscious individuals should look to the top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus. It combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively remove a range of airborne contaminants, which include the advanced HyperHEPA filter stage. The HyperHEPA filter is the most efficient filter in its class and can remove particles as small as .003 microns in size.

  • Study: HEPA air purifiers good for the heart

    Homeowners considering an air purifying system as a future purchase have a new reason to look forward to clean indoor air.

    A recent study found that HEPA air purifiers reduced indoor air pollution by as much as 60 percent, which reduces the risk of heart disease as well as allergies, asthma and lung cancer, the Baltimore Sun reports.

    According to the news source, researchers evaluated the air quality in 45 Canadian homes where indoor air pollution was prevalent due to the use of wood-burning stoves. Based on air quality readings, as well as blood and urine samples from the residents, it was apparent that on days when the purifiers were in use, the pollution levels dropped by 60 percent and residents' blood vessels had improved function.

    Those who want the best in HEPA technology should opt for an IQAir HealthPro Plus. It combines four advanced filtration technologies, including a HyperHEPA filter, the most advanced filter of its class. The HyperHEPA filter can filter molecules as small as .003 microns in size, compared to the .03 micron capacity of other leading brands.

  • Clean air isn't just good for you, it's energy-efficient
