Answer: Many people who suffer from respiratory ailments are keenly aware of triggers like pollen, dust, mold and pet dander - but what about airborne chemicals?
Prominent organizations like the American Lung Association now recognize that exposure to airborne chemicals can contribute to chronic respiratory problems and allergic reactions. In fact, some scientists believe that chemical exposure may be a contributing factor in the development of asthma.
With chemicals and fragrances so much a part of daily lives, we believe that both a HEPA filter for particles and a deep-bed activated carbon filter for airborne chemicals and odors provides the cleanest possible air for allergy and asthma sufferers.
My son, who is an allergic-asthmatic (asthma triggered primarily by allergies), has an AllerAir AirMedic in his room. It features an 18 lb. carbon filter for chemicals and odors, (which is more than some industrial machines) and a medical-grade HEPA filter for fine airborne particles. Besides removing a wide range of airborne triggers, we also found the AirMedic really effective on strong smells and fumes like cleaning products and paint.
