Air filters may not be the best solution for those suffering from allergies. Even if they are new and clean, they may not be able to filter out all allergens from the air. This is because the largest allergen particles are usually found on carpets, surfaces, and bedding, rather than in the air. Experts suggest that the best way to manage asthma and allergy symptoms is to combine medium to high efficiency air filters with a portable air purifier used in the bedroom, and to maintain a regular cleaning routine.
It is important to understand what causes allergies, their symptoms, and how to treat them properly. In some cases, using an air purifier can actually worsen allergies instead of improving them. This is usually due to ionizing units that increase the amount of allergens and dust in the air. Particles smaller than 10 microns, such as dust mites, can easily be inhaled and can irritate the eyes, nose, throat, lungs, and heart.
My allergist recommended a good brand of mattress covers and pillows for my bed, as well as air filters in the attic and downstairs. Mold spores can remain alive in the filter and be sent back into your home by the fan. While it is nice to cuddle with pets or open a window for some fresh air, it can also cause dust, dander, or other impurities to enter or come out into the air. The RabbitAir MinusA2 is designed to fit into almost any room with its slim and lightweight design that can fit on a shelf, desk, or even be wall-mounted.
It is best to place an air purifier in the area where you spend most of your time or where there is a source of pollution. Combining methods such as a cleaning routine, mechanical filters, and portable air purifiers is recommended by many experts. HEPA filters are able to clean smaller particles such as tobacco smoke and larger particles such as dust and pollen from the air. They have a high CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate).
Many people mistakenly believe that air filters in ovens and air conditioners keep dust and allergens out of the air. Indoor air quality can also affect your health just like outdoor air quality does. This means that you should remember to replace your air filter regularly. In a car, an air filter prevents dirt, debris, and impurities from entering the engine and dust, pollen, dirt, and other contaminants from entering the ventilation and heat grilles.
The RabbitAir MinusA2 uses photoelectrochemical oxidation nanotechnology (PECO) filter which not only traps and captures impurities but also breaks them down and destroys them.
