Air in some homes is WORSE than the air outside! Not good.
Air in some homes is WORSE than the air outside! Not good.

I know many people that suffer from allergies. In fact, I have one friend that had to go to THREE different allergy specialists before he was properly diagnosed. It turns out that the house he lives in has very poor air quality. Yes, sad, but true…his house had turned against him (or rather the air within his house!). Due to the rise of energy costs, people have created "air tight" environments in order to save money when it comes to either heating or cooling their homes. Homes that are "air tight" tend to have poor air circulation which means that the people inside are breathing in all types of air pollutants. Yes, "air tight" homes tend to be cost efficient, however, is risking your health really worth the money you may save? There MUST BE a better way!

Welcome to the World of Biological Pollutants

If too little outdoor, fresh air enters a home, pollutants can actually rise to unhealthy and even dangerous levels. Many different contaminants fall into the category of biological pollutants including, mold, mildew, animal dander, animal saliva, house dust, mites, cockroaches and pollen…just to name a few. Obviously, there are different ways that these contaminants enter your home. For example, pollen originates from plants while animal dander is spread via your dog (sorry Fido!). Did you know that the protein in rat and mouse urine is actually a potent allergen as well! Yuck! Mold and mildew are also big problems.

So...What Can You Do?

A great first step would be to invest in an air purifier. IQAir, for example, sells several different models which you simply plug into the wall. Obviously, you would place the unit in the room in which you and your family spend the most time (you may need to invest in several units). One IQAir purifier is able to effectively purify the air in an entire room (up to 1000 square feet). The IQ Air HealthPro Plus is one of the best selling air purifiers and has received more positive reviews than any other purifier on the market today. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is wonderful for people who suffer from respiratory ailments as it combines four advanced filtration technologies which are able to remove a large variety of air pollutants! This air purifier is also recommended for those individuals who suffer from asthma.

If you are interested in purifying the air in your entire home then you should consider purchasing a whole house air purification system such as IQAir's Perfect 16. This whole house purification system received the highest possible rating when it comes to whole-house air cleaning. It has a filtration system that is capable of removing bacteria, pet allergens, mold spores, dust, pollen and many other air contaminants that are dangerous to humans.

No matter whether you have allergies or simply want to breathe better air you should consider purchasing an air purifier. Did you know that most people spend up to 60% of their lives IN THEIR HOME! Think about that! The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) actually said that the air in many homes is WORSE than the air outside! In my opinion, that is CRAZY! I currently own two air purifiers (made by Ionic Pro) and I can really tell the difference when they are running! I breathe better and sneeze less. I have several animals and the air purifiers that I own really cut down on the dander that is in the air (I actually sleep better at night too!). If you want to breathe better and cut down on the allergens that are in your home (trust me, they are there!) you should purchase an air purifier today (search the world-wide web for best prices). Good luck…and here's to good health and breathing better!
