importance of breathing clean air
We all are becoming more aware of
the negative impact of “dirty air” on our health. Air Pollution
not only triggers allergy and asthma attacks but can cause
serious problems for people with heart, lung, and many other
medical conditions. Poor air is especially harmful to the very
young and very old. Unfortunately, bad air is not just an
outdoor problem. According to the Environmental Protection
Agency, indoor air is 5 to 10 times more polluted than the air
outdoors. Fortunately, we can improve the quality of our indoor
A HEPA filter is an efficient air
cleaning medium. HEPA is an acronym for High Efficiency
Particulate Arresting which simply stated means highly efficient
in capturing particulates. How efficient? A HEPA filter is
99.97% effective at filtering particles as small as 0.3 microns.
. Particulates this size are invisible to the naked eye but can
be harmful when inhaled. Common allergens that fall into this
0.3 - 100 microns
10 - 40 microns
10 - 100 microns
10 - 70 microns
0.3 - 3 microns
0.5 - 5 microns
2 - 20 microns
0.003 - 0.04 microns
Although HEPA filters
were designed and used in the 1940s, more and more people are just
now learning about the effectiveness of a HEPA filter and the relief
gained by its use. HEPA filters were originally designed to
filter out radioactive dust particulate contaminants in bomb
shelters during the atomic bomb tests. After realizing how
powerful and effective a HEPA filter actually is people now use them
in their homes and offices to help reduce the number of airborne
allergens resulting in fewer allergy attacks.
HEPA filters are
vacuum cleaners and
masks and can be designed to meet
your specific needs. Air purifiers contain HEPA filters that
are designed for specific room sizes such as the Austin HM-200 and
Austin HM-400 and can also be upgraded to contain
extra elements to help filter allergens and VOCs (volatile organic
compounds) such as smoke, ammonia and formaldehyde. See
Austin HM + Superblend and
Austin Allergy Machine. Regular household
activities such as sitting on furniture, opening blinds, playing
with your pet, and walking on your carpet keep allergy causing
particulates airborne for hours. An air purifier with a HEPA
filter will improve the quality of the air inside your home.
The effectiveness of
using a HEPA filter has proven to greatly reduce allergens and
particle pollutants thus creating cleaner air. Cleaner air
improves health and improved health allows for happier, productive
people. So control the risks before you, breathe cleaner air
& improve your health!
