Allergy & Air on October 21, 2014 1 Comment Do you suffer from allergies? You are not alone. According to the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America, an estimated 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. This means that at least 1 in 5 of us are sufferers and at least half of all American households are the home of at least one allergy sufferer. Allergies also rank 5th among leading chronic diseases in the US and 3rd among children under 18 years old. Some Americans have been suffering from allergies all of their lives, while others have had to confront allergies upon a move to a different region or environment. Regardless of how long you have suffered or the extent of your suffering, allergies can significantly impact your health, cause you to lose sleep, and lower your overall quality of life. The Truth About the Air You Breathe It can be disconcerting to realize that breathing, which is what you do to stay alive, can be precisely what is causing you to suffer. Pollen, dust, mold, and pet dander are just a few of the most commonly identified airborne allergens that we breathe in on a daily basis. It may be shocking to hear, but the air in your home may be up to two to five times more saturated with these irritants than the outside air. There aren’t many things in this world that we can control, but the air you and your loved ones breath in your own home should be one of them. Especially knowing that the average American spends 90% of their time indoors, it is time to take control. Relief Can Be Yours; An Air Purifier Can Help Quality allergy-combating air purifiers are equipped with a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration system. These filtration systems are designed to trap and remove particles at the sub-micron level, some filtering particles as small as 0.003 microns. This means that pollen, dust, mold, and pet dander in your home won’t stand a chance. The Clean Air Difference Having clean, breathable air can make a difference in your health, sleep and overall quality of life. Give yourself and your loved ones the chance to live a longer, healthier and happier life simply by offering a clean breathing environment to call home.
