Indoor air may be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air, reducing quality of life for many people with respiratory diseases such as allergies or asthma. Air purifiers offer valuable assistance for such people at home or at the work place. Activated MAC-B carbon bed filters are used by the military to keep personnel safe from poisonous gases, and will absorb the widest range of airborne chemicals, gases and odors in your home. The more carbon contained in the filter, the better the absorb rate, and the longer the life span of the filter, which is why AllerAir uses 18 pounds of activated carbon in their products
AllerAirís HEPA filters have been found to trap particles as small as 0.01 microns with close to 99% efficiency. The proven medical-grade HEPA filter technology consists of a submicroscopic glass fiber mesh that has the texture of blotting paper. HEPA filters trap 99.97% of all airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns in size, meaning that in tests only 3 out of every 10,000 particles are allowed to pass through the filter.
The 5000 Exec air purifiers are available with an optional photocatalytic UV filter, which neutralizes mold spores and keeps them from reproducing. Also, the UV filter sterilizes viruses and airborne pathogens, preventing the spread of disease in hospitals and laboratories.
