Household Air Pollution
Today’s household air is so full of pollutants that it provides a serious threat to public health. Due to the micro-particles in our indoor air, everyone, whether young or old, faces an increasing risk of respiratory disease. The alarming increase lung disease worldwide has made it as serious a problem as heart disease. Poor air quality is a major concern indoors where the air is polluted by biological substances such as mold spores, viruses, germs, dust mites, volatile organic chemicals, and bacteria. All of these add to our rate of disease. Other possible areas of polluted air include schools, arenas, offices—really, almost every public area.
At home (and sometimes while away), there may be the added pollutants of pet dander and odor. Depending on where you live, there may be occasional yet serious pollution from the smoke of forest or grass fires. Even though these are periodic, they increase the threat to your and your family’s health.
Clean Air Solutions for the Home or Office: A good solution for the home or office is the Alen BreatheSmart HEPA Air Purifier. Walk into a room with the Energy-certified BreatheSmart and you will notice at once the smell of clean, fresh air. Allergy sufferers and those with COPD may find relief right away. Alen gives you a number of HEPA filter options so that you can adapt the unit to meet your exact needs, for example, a special HEPA filter for strong odors or another for allergens. You are able to choose as you shop online.
For an area measuring 1100 square feet or less, The BreatheSmart can be set to put out an airflow of 150 CFM (cubic feet per minute), essentially 6.4 air changes per hour (ACH). The adjustable ACH rate is the key to clean air; the higher the rate, the more effective the performance of the unit. Air purifiers with a lower rate just are not worth it. One outstanding feature is its Auto Mode which monitors your environment and adjusts the airflow accordingly.
The HEPA filter is a very important feature. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) indicates an efficiency as high as 99.97% in filtering out particles as small as .3 microns, smaller than most viruses. (The average human hair is about 100 microns in thickness.) The benefit is air pure enough for those with allergies. This is particularly relevant for children and the elderly.
It is essential to point out that the BreatheSmart has a lifetime warranty, unique to Alen. In addition, you can select a panel cover in a color that matches the décor of your home.
After installing the Alen BreatheSmart HEPA Air Purifier, it is important to replace the filter as recommended, usually every 9 months, depending on the quality of the air that has been filtered and the settings you have used. Alen offers packs of replacement filters at a reduced cost.
