Air Cleaners increase Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
Air pollutants in your North Carolina home can lead to health problems such as allergies, asthma and other respiratory illnesses. With increased consumer awareness about the health issues associated with poor home IAQ, demand for home air purification products is strong, and continues to grow.
Indoor air pollutants can affect us all, especially those homebound with serious illnesses, very young children, the elderly, and the 60-70 million people in North America who suffer from allergies, asthma and other respiratory ailments. Airborne pollutants found in North Carolina homes, such as particulates (dust), microorganisms (molds, fungi & bacteria), and other toxins (VOC, gases), can trigger a wide range of respiratory problems including:
- Allergies and sinus reactions
- Painful headaches
- Persistent coughing, sneezing and wheezing
- Recurring cold and flu-type symptoms
- Chronic asthma
- Chronic fatigue
Sure, allergy medications can treat the symptoms, but physicians also recommend "allergen avoidance"—taking measures to reduce or eliminate exposure to the source of the problem. For example, if a person is allergic to shellfish, but eats them anyway, medical treatment may alleviate the reaction. However, it makes a lot more sense to avoid eating them in the first place. In the same light, avoidance of airborne allergens can reduce the threat to our health and well-being.
