Get Asthma and Allergy Relief with Austin Air Room Air Purifiers

Everyone knows that the dust, pollen, dirt, pet dander, mold, and mildew which slowly creep into our homes can cause respiratory illness.  This is especially true for homes where asthma and allergy suffers live.   Something microscopic or smaller than a pin head can cause people with asthma or allergies to go into sneezing and wheezing fits of misery.  Austin Air room air purifiers can change all of that.

Why these air purifiers?  Well, first off, they don’t rely on ionization, which can actually trigger asthma according to the Mayo Clinic. Ozone which is produced by the ionization process can actually worsen asthma and respiratory problems.

Secondly they come with both HEPA and carbon filters, which are very effective at removing allergens, dust, and other contaminants such as bacteria from the air with a four step filtration system.   Plus the pre-filter is easily cleaned with a vacuum nozzle and doesn’t have to be replaced often.

Austin Air Purifiers are incredibly easy to use, come with a 5 year parts and labor warranty, and also come in varying sizes depending on how large of a living space you are looking to purify.

As a bonus, since most of the dust is getting cleared out of the air, it can’t settle on floors, tables, or chairs, keeping your house cleaner and chores easier.

Allergy Relief – Relief from the pollen vortex!

Seasonal allergy sufferers are experiencing one of the worst allergy seasons on record. According to a recent article by The Kansas City Star “This spring could be one of the worst allergy seasons on record” the record cold spring time temperatures created a perfect storm for allergens.

The 2014 spring weather across most of the United States was much colder on average and very erratic with cold and warm spikes. This caused many of the early blooming trees and plants to not bloom until later when there was finally a wide spread arm up. Most trees then bloomed all at the same time making allergen levels spike to unseen levels. Pollen counts are commonly under 100 particles per cubic meter of air and recorded measures this year were up to 7,000. Levels this high even effect people without seasonal allergies and can wreak havoc on the bodies of those who do.

The pollen levels are to remain high all the way through fall so it is imperative to start taking action now for allergy relief.  It is recommended to use a home air purifier such as an Austin Air home air purifier to remove allergens from your home. These machines utilize HEPA filters to remove allergens, viruses, odors, chemicals and mostly everything from the air you breathe. Reducing allergens within your home is important as many Americans spend a large portion of their time there. Running an air purifier continually will allow you to control the allergen count and help you get allergy relief. It’s important to spend more time indoors on days when pollen counts spike as it can take only a few minutes to be affects and days to recover.

Prepare for spring cleaning with a permanent air filter

Spring cleaning is an annual ritual performed by many homeowners across the United States as a way to purge their household of unwanted items and thoroughly clean it. Cleaning and removing items that have been resting for a long period disturbs all the particles that have settled out of the air making them airborne. A quality air filter for your furnace and AC is critical during this process to filter out these unwanted contaminants.

Replacing your disposable filter with a permanent filter is an ideal way to start your spring cleaning. A permanent filter such an electrostatic filter by BoAir will outperform standard filters and save money. Their superior filtration is critical during times of increased air pollutants such as when you are spring cleaning. Particles attach to the filter due to the electrostatic charge and remain there until they are washed away. This allows for them to be washed as often as needed and act as an air purifier to your home.

Permanent air filters have many advantages over their costly disposable counterparts in that they last indefinitely. They simply need to be washed every 4-6 weeks or more frequent during periods such as spring cleaning when more particles are within your homes air. They also filter more pollutants from the air than standard filters which often relives seasonal allergy symptoms.   They are also ideal for those who suffer from asthma as they can greatly reduce breathing problems due to the increased air quality. If you would like more information on how a permanent air filter can save you money and help you breathe safer, please contact us.

Air Purifiers Provide Indoor Asthma Relief

If you or someone in your family suffers from asthma, you are not alone. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates there are 25 million asthma sufferers in the United States. The number of people affected by asthma is getting larger every year, and children are more susceptible than adults. Asthma results in an estimated $56 billion per year in medical costs, lost work and school days, and early deaths. Asthma causes wheezing, coughing and chest tightness which limits a person’s quality of life.

Fortunately, there are proven ways to obtain asthma relief, and prevent asthma attacks. CDC Vital Signs has the following recommendations: “People with asthma can prevent asthma attacks if they are taught to use inhaled corticosteroids and other prescribed daily long-term control medicines correctly and to avoid asthma triggers. Triggers can include tobacco smoke, mold, outdoor air pollution, and colds and flu.”

Room air purifiers use HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arresting) and carbon filters to clear asthma triggers from the air before they build up to concentrations that cause respiratory problems. Airborne particles and allergens settle into carpets and fabrics, and are stirred back into the air by the daily movements in the home. Continuous cleaning of the air will prevent these contaminants from settling in the first place. This clean air provides the added benefit of less time needed to clean carpets and furniture.

Along with the benefit to asthma sufferers, air purifiers remove other contaminants and allergens from the air. Pollutants such as dust, pet dander, smoke, mold and mildew spores, dust mites, viruses, bacteria, odors and fumes are all removed from the indoor environment. Healthy, fresh and clean indoor air benefits everyone who breathes it.

Healthy Home Filter Company carries the top rated Austin Air line of air purifiers. Our air purifiers are among the best available in the industry, and are voted #1 by customers worldwide.  Contact us for more information about how to improve the air quality in your home.

Air purifiers offer winter indoor allergy relief

During the winter months Americans tend to stay indoors longer due to the cold weather especially in the northern United States which receives frequent snow falls. Many will suffer from indoor allergies which are caused by the buildup of allergens within their homes. The symptoms can often be mistaken for a common cold, but they do not go away after a few days.

An article on WebMD “Winter Allergies” highlights the common allergies people face within their home in the winter and several way to combat them. Common allergens during the winter months include:

Dust Mites – Tiny bugs that are often found in bedding and drapery

Pet Dander – Dead skin cells, dried saliva or urine

Mold – Common fungus that is found in wet areas such as bathroom and  basements

These allergens are present in your home throughout the year, but become concentrated during the winter months due to lack of fresh air from the outside. Pet allergies also worsen due to pets being inside more due to the cold weather.  Common symptoms to look for caused by indoor allergies include coughing, itchy eyes, dark circles under eyes and sneezing. If you suffer from these symptoms for more than a few days than its likely you need to reduce allergens within your home to get allergy relief.

Common household cleaning such as regular vacuuming, sweeping, dustings and mopping reduces the amount of allergens within your home. This can also increase the amount of allergens that are airborne as they are disturbed during the cleaning process. An air purifier is the ideal solution to compliment your regular cleaning as it can remove the allergens from your air. Models such as those produced by Austin including their Allergy machine can treat up to a 1500 square feet house with its HEPA filter. They are designed to remove allergens, chemicals, odors and viruses from your homes air supply. This can greatly reduce or eliminate your winter allergy symptoms.
