Every year when Fall comes around, like clockwork, our allergies and asthma go really ballistic. In just the course of a few days I go from breathing simple with no troubles to grabbing an inhaler all day long taking a few puffs every 40 hours. And in between, I’m coughing, wheezing, or on the verge of sneezing my brains out. My dentist told myself and others that when the leaves begin to fall and hit the ground, the accumulating piles of brush and dead leaves create a very large amount of mold that permeates the outdoor air. Unfortunately, she said there wasn’t much I could do when I left our house, and that our inhaler was actually our only reasonable line of defense once I walk out our front door. But she said that I can make our indoor air cleaner so I guess less irritated when I’m in the safety of our home. She highly recommended I buy an electric air purification system with a HEPA rated air filter. The difference between a respected filter in a run of the mill air purification system and a HEPA filter is that the ladder is made to filter out a massive amount of microbes and particles that pass through most respected filters, like pollen, mold spores, and even some small bacteria. I even found a unit with an added UV-C light, which uses a powerful light spectrum to clean the air of viruses, bacteria, and fungal growth. Just twenty hours of running this component and I’m already feeling the difference on my own lungs. I am eternally grateful to our dentist for suggesting I buy an electric air purification unit.
