AllerAir Air Purifiers Visits achoo! ALLERGY

Achoo! ALLERGY employees meet with AllerAir air purifier representative. Yesterday, Jeffrey Kanel of AllerAir Industries held a meeting with achoo! ALLERGY employees. Such meetings are a regular occurrence at achoo! ALLERGY, where continuing education regarding allergy relief products and disseminating this information to allergy sufferers is one of our top priorities.

AllerAir specializes in air purification units containing activated carbon, which controls exposure to chemicals, off-gassing, and noxious fumes. AllerAir president discusses this further in AllerAir President Sam Teitelbaum on Activated Carbon Filtration. People who suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) are greatly helped by the use of such units. Even people without manifested sensitivities to chemicals benefit from the use of a carbon air purifier that eliminates toxic gasses and odors from the air.

The amount of carbon in any given unit is important because it increases "dwell time," a crucial factor in the success of removing lethal chemicals from the air. Dwell time refers to the amount of time that a substance takes to pass through the carbon filter. The thicker the carbon, the longer the dwell time and the better the unit is at trapping chemicals. AllerAir is proud to offer the highest carbon content in the industry. Their carbon filters run at a minimum of two-and-a-half inches in width.

Kanel also recommends running units on the low setting in order to increase dwell time. Lower settings cause air to pass through the carbon filter more slowly, increasing the amount of time the air “dwells” on the filter, thereby allowing the carbon to absorb as many chemical substances as possible.

Ironically, the very carbon that filters chemicals from the air can cause sensitivity issues in those with MCS. To alleviate this problem, we offer an AllerAir Test Kit, which consists of five different types of carbon samples. The kit allows buyers to choose the type of carbon in their AllerAir air purifier to ensure that it will not be bothersome. Test kits run at $60, which is deducted from the cost of the unit.

Along with carbon filters, AllerAir units come with HEPA filters, which are 99.97% effective in trapping allergens such as pollen, mold, and dust mites. AllerAir's HEPA filters are specially treated to prevent cracking at the pleats, a common phenomenon that impedes HEPA filter effectiveness. UV lights, an optional add-on, are also available to destroy pathogenic substances.

In addition to the UV light, consumers may choose from a comprehensive breadth of customization options. For instance, the AllerAir 5000 DS and DXS air purifiers are designed especially to deal with tobacco smoke. Armed with special pre-filters to trap tar as well as specially blended activated carbon that traps up to 400 of the toxic chemicals found in tobacco smoke, AllerAir is a prime choice air purification system for environments affected by tobacco smoke. The AllerAir 5000 Vocarb air purifiers feature over 40 different blends of impregnated carbon to combat the effects of particular Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Customization also extends to the appearance of the units, which can be painted to blend in to their surroundings.

Across the spectrum of their varied offerings, AllerAir units are easy to maintain, perhaps among the easiest out there. A pre-filter that traps larger matter is housed just within the unit’s underside – you can simply pull it out and vacuum or replace it in seconds, without any tools.

Achoo! employees left the meeting feeling proud to offer their customers such an all-inclusive and top-of-the line product that protects against both allergens and chemicals.
