Make the Air that you Breath in your home or office Safe .....
We now live in a world where it is fashionable exercise, to look after your body at the gym, eat good foods, drink purified water, and have that special mattress to keep our back in good shape, but all too often many of us overlook one of the essential life elements, namely the air that we breath. The quality of our life is dependent on the quality of the air that we are breathing in our home and in our workplace. In United States alone, 79% of us are living in cities riddled with air pollution, yet very few of us choose to do anything about it. Our lungs which are filters to the air we breathe, need to be protected from chemicals and contaminants that are polluting the environments that we take for granted.
Polluted air contains particulate matter, lead, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide—all of which can cause problems in people with allergies or asthma. Even if pollution is low, airborne pollen and mold can be daunting for people with respiratory conditions.
Providing healthy indoor air and a safe environment for your family with the use of a high quality, medical grade HEPA air filter may be the best investment you make for your family and home.
Here are some facts worth considering about the air that you breath;
- Inhaling air pollution takes away at least 1-2 years of a typical human life.
- An average American breathe 2 gallons of air per minute which means around 3400 gallons of air each day.
- Pollutants that are released into the air, as opposed to land and water pollutants, are the most harmful.
- Air pollution is not a recent occurrence. In 1952, the Great Smog of London killed 8000 people. Many lives could have been saved if they had an air purifier in the cupboard.
- Toxic air pollution poses a greater threat to children, due to their smaller physical size and lung capacity.
- 5,000 premature deaths in Southern California are caused due to pollution from diesel trucks.
- The number of people who die in America every year due to air pollution is above 50,000.
- Indoor air pollution is 2-5 times worse than the air outdoors.
- People who live near high traffic roads face greater risk of cancer, heart disease, asthma and bronchitis as these places contain more concentrated levels of air pollution.
Symptoms You May be Experiencing Indicative of Poor Quality Air
Symptoms such as a tight chest, coughing or an irritated throat could be indicative of breathing polluted air. The health effects of breathing dirty air are more evident at night. You may have difficulty breathing and could be disturbed with a constant cough. The tossing and turning keeps you awake and without any rest. This in turn, prevents you from having a productive day at work or school because you are deprived of a good night’s sleep.
The most common symptoms of indoor air pollution are;
- watery eyes
- upper respiratory congestion
The listed symptoms can easily be mistaken for symptoms of other illnesses such as allergies, stress, colds and influenza. If you notice relief from your symptoms soon after leaving a particular room or building, your symptoms may be caused by indoor air contaminants.

What is a HEPA filter?
High-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) also sometimes called high-efficiency particulate arresting or high-efficiency particulate air, is a type of air filter. Filters meeting the HEPA standard have many applications, including use in medical facilities, automobiles, aircraft and homes. The filter must satisfy certain standards of efficiency such as those set by the United States Department of Energy (DOE).
