Millions of people all around the world suffer from asthma.
This condition is caused when the tubes that deliver air to your lungs become inflamed, and you’re prevented from breathing properly.
And if you’ve lived through an attack, you’ll know how terrifying this can be.
There are a number of factors which can trigger an asthma attack. But the most common cause is when your body reacts to allergens or irritants in the air.
This is why the air you breathe plays a significant factor in the lives of people with asthma.
Bad indoor air quality which is filled with allergens can make life unbearable and trigger attacks.
But can an air purifier remove these allergens and help to stop asthma attacks?
The answer is yes and no.
You see, you need to have the right type of air purifier. There are many different types and only one is effective for people with asthma.
The kinds you want to avoid are ozone and electronic air purifier. These generate ozone, which causes particles to drop out of the air, but can also irritate your lungs and trigger attacks.
Besides that, they just aren’t strong enough.
Ozone and electronic purifier are unable to remove the very smallest particles (Like microscopic dust mite droppings) which trigger attacks.
Instead, what you need is a HEPA filter.
These were invented in World War II, when the atomic bomb was being developed, and were made to stop radioactive particles escaping from labs.
They have an efficiency rating of 99.97% and have special screens which can trap anything larger than 0.3 microns.
And for asthma suffers, these HEPA filters can provide welcome relief. The right filter can help to prevent asthma attacks, lets you breathe more easily and makes being at home far more comfortable.
(Plus it also makes living with smokers easier.)
