AllerAir AirMedic MCS Air Purifier
The AllerAir AirMedic MCS air purifier is designed to target asthma and allergy sufferers with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
(MCS). This unit replaces the AllerAir 5000 MCS series and offers some additional upgrades. The AirMedic MCS features EcoFlow
technology, making the unit more eco-friendly. These additions and others make the AirMedic MCS more effective in addressing the
needs of those with MCS.
What I like about the AllerAir AirMedic MCS
The AirMedic MCS tackles particle and chemical filtration with 18 lbs. of activated carbon. This unit also features an
organic cotton pre-filter in addition to a HEPA filter. This bed of carbon is slightly larger than the 15 lbs. used in
its predecessor. These three filter media work to trap all chemical and particle contaminants which could severely affect
someone with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. There is also an optional UV lamp available to address pathogens and antigens.
Like the older series, the AirMedics come in two models. The standard model comes with everything described above
while the AirMedic MCS D is equipped with a Micro-HEPA filter in place of a medical grade HEPA filter. Additionally, the
MCS D comes packed with 25 lbs. of activated carbon. The Micro-HEPA filter and increased carbon depth allow for better
well time and provide superior filtration of the chemicals commonly found in tobacco smoke.
There are no harsh chemicals found in the bonding agents of the AirMedics. Instead, AllerAir uses environmentally friendly,
water-soluble AFM bonding in these machines.
Another feature that separates this model from other AllerAir units is the variable speed control. Instead of three fixed speeds,
the AirMedic can be set to any speed within its range
What I did not like about the AllerAir AirMedic MCS
As with most AllerAir units, the emphasis on packing as much carbon as possible into these units leads to heavier machines than comparable air purifiers. The weight is made slightly more manageable with the use of casters, but it would be helpful if these machines had a handle built into them.
The price may be prohibitive for some, but for MCS sufferers, the price of effective relief is worth the initial cost, particularly for an item that has the longevity and effectiveness of the AllerAir MCS.
AllerAirs founder, Sam Teitelbaum, started AllerAir with the intent of developing air purifiers that went beyond standard
particle filtration. From his personal experience with MCS, he has placed great emphasis on providing quality filtration for
those coping with this condition. The AirMedic MCS series offers improved performance over its predecessor and does its part to
reduce its impact on the environment. For MCS sufferers, this is likely the best model on the market.
