The Best Air Purifiers for Allergies & Asthma Symptoms
An air purifier is designed to remove particles from the air in any indoor space, saving you from huffing and sneezing, watery eyes, and other unpleasant allergy or asthma symptoms. There are many sources for allergies that can be found indoors, pets, dust and even pollens that somehow find their way inside. Thankfully, you can breathe easy knowing that we offer the absolute best allergen filtration products. We have partnered with such brands as RabbitAir, Blueair, and EdgeStar to give you everything you need to reduce the allergens that you don’t want to be breathing in.
Air purifiers work though a number of different filtration methods and some products even combine several different kinds of filters into one device. Some filters use carbon, which can remove odors, vapors and smoke. These are highly effective at reducing smells and the cleanliness of air and they can filter out 99.7 percent of particles above a certain size.
For the truly microscopic organisms like viruses which can’t be stopped by a carbon filter, you will need an anti-virus filter. These filters utilize antimicrobial agents to kill viruses so your immune system doesn’t have to. For a more complete elimination of microorganisms, you will find the battle is best fought with a silver ion filter. Silver ion filters can even reduce viruses, fungi, and spores. The filter utilizes special silver ions which penetrate into the very structure of these organic cells, destroying them from the inside out.
Some filters, such as anti-bacterial filters, are designed specifically to combat bacteria. They utilize tea polyphenols to capture mold, dust and even bacteria themselves. Antibacterial agents will actually kill bacteria, literally sanitizing the air you breathe. These kinds of filters also do a good job at eliminating odors. UV germicidal filters will actually use ultraviolet light to burn away bacteria, viruses and mold. These devices are best paired with other filters, such as carbon filters.
What Kinds of Filtration Options Are Available?
If you are looking for an allergy air purifier, there is no better place to shop than right here at Living Direct. This is because we offer a tremendous variety of filters. Some of our devices have four or even six different stages of filtration, so that your air can be cleaner than it has ever been before. Many of our devices are HEPA certified, so you can be sure that they are safe and reliable. All of our products come with warranties of varying periods of time, making it easy for you to replace damaged or malfunctioning equipment. Some of the machines come with adjustable fan speeds, allowing them to move air at a relaxing, quiet pace, or to push air through a room in a powerful cleaning cycle.
Typically a filter can have a life of up to five years, so you won’t have to be constantly opening a filter machine to change them out. Some of the devices have childproof safety designs so that you don’t risk children getting into the devices and getting themselves all dirty by playing with the filters. There are also some devices in our line of products that come with a washable pre-filter, which is easy to remove and can be cleaned in a few minutes. These pre-filters will further increase the life of the more specialized filters that air continues into after first passing through the pre-filter.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
