According to the American Lung Association, asthma is the sixth ranking chronic condition in our nation and the leading serious chronic illness of children in the U.S. Individuals who suffer from asthma, or have other respiratory illness may be at a greater risk for health complications associated with poor indoor air quality. The air quality of our indoor environments affects our health and can cause or contribute to asthma, lung disease, and the development of infections. Learning how to reduce allergen levels in your homes environment is important for controlling allergies and asthma. Our asthma air purifiers have been carefully selected by our testing team to be highly affective and efficient. Since asthmatics are more likely to be allergic to VOCs and chemicals, we prefer recommending air purifiers that use HEPA filters and activated carbon which can remove a wide range of pollutants including particles, gases and chemicals. We recognize that asthma is a serious condition. To qualify as an asthma air purifier our units need to meet specific standards. We have carefully selected this line of asthma air purifiers specifically with asthma sufferers in mind, to help provide you and your family with a safer and healthier indoor environment.
