  • Heat wave leaves Maryland residents gasping for clean air

    Air pollution is a common problem in many cities across the country, but stifling heat can often trap smog and make it more difficult to breathe. Recently, Maryland was struck with a heat wave that left individuals gasping for air, according to the Baltimore Sun. Those with respiratory conditions were especially vulnerable to complications as a result of the lingering smog.

    In an effort to reduce the effects of air pollution, environmental experts have been recommending a reduction of the use of carbon emission vehicles and appliances. Using power mowers and painting on days with high ozone levels can make it more difficult to breathe.

    Individuals who suffer from allergies or respiratory conditions such as asthma can benefit from air purifiers as well. These devices are designed to remove irritating particles from the air, including pollen, dust and cigarette smoke.

    Those who want to dramatically improve the air quality in their homes may want to purchase the IQAir HealthPro Plus. Its HyperHEPA filter can trap ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, making it easier to breathe. The air purifier can remove irritants from up to 900 square feet.

  • Chattanooga receives EPA approval for clean air

    It can be difficult for a city to clean up its act after years of producing air pollution, but Chattanooga, Tennessee, was recently commended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its efforts. The EPA says that the city now officially meets smog standards, meaning citizens are safe to breathe the air. This is significant for the Tennessee hub, which is home to more than 520,000 people.

    "We commend local and state officials, as well as the residents of the Chattanooga area, who have been working collaboratively with us to reach this milestone," said Gwen Keyes Fleming, EPA Regional Administrator. "This accomplishment signifies that the citizens of Chattanooga are breathing cleaner air and leading healthier lives."

    Smog is not only unsightly, but it can cause a number of health problems and pose a threat to those suffering from respiratory conditions. Air purifiers are one solution that many have turned to in order to cope with high levels of pollution.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus has helped many people remove harmful particles from the air. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, ranging from pollen to cigarette smoke.

  • Code Orange alert issued for Atlanta due to smog

    Atlanta is not only known for its lively southern culture, but for its air pollution as well. Although it is not something to be proud of, residents and legislators alike are conscious of the smog that engulfs the city on a regular basis.

    Recently, a Code Orange alert was issued for the ozone forecast in Atlanta after nearly surpassing regulations, according to The Weekly. On May 12, the city recorded its third ozone violation of the year. As the warm weather continues to roll into the region, environmental and health officials stress that smog control is going to be more crucial than ever.

    Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions, children and the elderly are at risk of developing health complications as a result of smog. Atlanta is just one of many cities across the U.S. struggling to control air pollution.

    Air purifiers can help remove pollution and irritating particles from living spaces. The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter designed to trap ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size within 900 square feet of space. It can be beneficial for individuals with respiratory complications and those who just want to breathe a little easier.

  • Montana residents support EPA regulations for pollution

    Air pollution has long been known to cause a number of health complications and even increase the mortality rate among individuals exposed to toxic chemicals for extended periods of time. However, residents in the Billings, Montana, area have been lucky enough to avoid these complications, thanks to the Clean Air Act.

    Recently, a petroleum and manufacturing industry conglomerate has been pushing Montana legislators to loosen Clean Air Act regulations, claiming that they hurt the economy. However, experts say that the act has saved billions of dollars in healthcare costs that would be related to dangerous respiratory conditions, according to the Billings Gazette.

    A survey conducted by the State of the Rockies Project found that 62 percent of Montana voters support Environmental Protection Agency regulations.

    Individuals living with a respiratory condition in a polluted area may want to consider purchasing an air purifier to help them breathe easier in their living spaces.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus can help remove air pollutants from up to 900 square feet with its HyperHEPA filter. The air purifier is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, ranging from pollen to cigarette smoke. This may help prevent allergic reactions and future asthma attacks.

  • Clean Air Transport Rule could cut down on dangerous emissions

    Air pollution has been a concern for decades, but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently finished drafting a set of regulations to reduce smog as a result of coal power plants. If the White House approves of the new rules, coal plants in Eastern states that exceed the maximum concentration of air contaminants will be required to install new pollution controls, according to The New York Times.

    The White House is expected to announce its decision by June. The regulations, also known as the Clean Air Transport Rule, could dramatically reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide. Nitrogen oxides are specifically dangerous because they cause disruptions in the ozone layer that result in ground-level smog.

    Air pollution can negatively affect individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions such as asthma. However, clean air regulations are helping more people breathe easier across the country.

    An air purifier can help remove dangerous toxins from your home atmosphere. The IQAir HealthPro Plus can trap irritating ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size.

    With this air purifier, homeowners can remove everything from cigarette smoke to pollen from up to 900 square feet. The IQAir HealthPro Plus can be especially beneficial to those who are living with asthma.

  • Wisconsin celebrates Clean Air Month in May

    Many people take clean air for granted, but legislators in Wisconsin recently celebrated Clean Air Month to raise awareness of the benefits. Officials across the state have begun recognizing the month, which was designated as May, in an effort to make residents more conscious of their carbon footprints.

    Wisconsin has seen an admirable amount of success since the Clean Air Act was amended in 1990, according to the Ashland Current. All 11 southeastern Wisconsin counties now meet the one-hour ozone level standard created by the federal government.

    "Cleaner air is a tremendous benefit to families, businesses and government," Cathy Stepp, Department of Natural Resources Secretary, told the news source. "Our clean air and water are one of the reasons businesses and families want to be in Wisconsin and an important component of the high quality of life we enjoy here."

    Individuals who want to keep their living spaces pollution-free may want to consider purchasing an air purifier, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. This includes dust, pollen and pet dander, all of which can cause allergic reactions.

  • U.S. Senate panel backs future funding for Clean Air Act

    Although the Clean Air Act has seen success since its development in the early 1990s, government officials are considering cutting funding to the legislation that has greatly reduced pollution.

    Recently, a U.S. Senate panel suggested that funding in the future is necessary in order to continue the success that the act has seen during the first five years of its existence. Focusing on cleaner diesel has been a big part of the efficiency of the legislation.

    "These last 10 years have been called the decade of clean diesel: a system of cleaner engines, low-sulfur fuels, and advanced emissions control technologies ultimately deployed for all ranges and types of diesel powered vehicles, equipment and machines," said Allen Schaeffer, Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum in support of the act.

    Air pollution is not only disruptive to the environment, but to individuals who suffer from respiratory illnesses.

    Air purifiers can help remove toxic particles from living spaces in a short amount of time. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is an air purifier designed to remove everything from pollen to cigarette smoke from the atmosphere.

  • Corpus Christi receives good ratings for clean air

    It can be difficult for individuals with respiratory health complications to live in regions with high levels of pollution, but Corpus Christi is one city where that won't be a problem. Federal data released by the American Lung Association shows that the Texas hub is home to some of the cleanest air in the country, according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

    "I think it's important that we let the community know we are doing things right," Kevin Kieschnick, city councilman, told the news source. "Our large industrial customers have invested in making their operations cleaner for all of us. We need to let our community know we have seen great results."

    Experts say that the good rankings are a result of using clean-burning fossil fuels and reducing the number of coal-burning plants.

    Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions, such as asthma, are not always lucky enough to live in regions with low levels of pollution. Air purifiers can help those who have health complications as a result of dust, pollen and other particles in the atmosphere.

  • Is fresh air on your spring cleaning list?

    Now that the weather is warm enough to crack a window, people everywhere are likely catching up on their spring cleaning if they haven't done so yet. If there are a few items that remain on your list, make sure that freshening your air doesn't stay there for too much longer.

    Winter is one of the worst seasons for indoor air quality, as people tend to spend most of their time inside and closed windows equate to poor air circulation. However, just because that's about to change doesn't mean that those who live in densely polluted areas won't be ale to benefit from a bit of outside help.

    Health-conscious individuals looking to boost their indoor air quality should consider investing in a professional-quality air purifying system. Fresh Air Pro carries only the best, most trusted brands available on the market today, such as the best-selling IQAir.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is a top-line defense against a range of household contaminants such as mold, pollen, dust, dust mites, pet dander, gases, odors and smoke. It combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively filter over 99 percent of particles from the air, leaving you with fresh, clean air you can count on.

  • EPA faces budget cut in 2011

    The Clean Air Act has kept pollutants from damaging the ozone layer at an alarming rate, but environmental advocates' efforts may be hindered in the near future, according to Bloomberg News. The Environmental Protection Agency's budget is expected to be cut by nearly 16 percent. This will amount to approximately $1.6 billion as a result of a deal with President Obama in the government's attempt to save money in the 2011 fiscal year.

    "A $1.6 billion cut coming just at the time the EPA is finally waking up and starting to adopt basic safeguards is going to have a significant impact," Gabe Wisniewski, coal campaign director for the environmental group Greenpeace, told the news source.

    Americans who live with respiratory conditions, such as asthma, suffer extensively from pollution. Air purifiers can be used to help individuals breathe easily indoors.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is one device that can reduce the amount of harmful pollutants present in the air with its HyperHEPA filter. The product is designed to trap microscopic particles that are responsible for allergic reactions and asthma attacks in living spaces.
