Filtering the Air You Breathe to Remedy Breathing Problems

 

 

Introduction

We check the labels on our food all the time, but do you ever wonder what is in the air you breathe? There are tiny particles in the air that we take in with every breath, some of which are natural and safe to breathe, like oxygen, nitrogen, water, etc. But other things, such as dust, gases, pollen, smoke, bacteria, and viruses like COVID-19, are mixed in with the good stuff. So, the question is: What is in your air? There are a ton of contaminants in the air that we should not be breathing on a long-term basis, and Airfree filterless purifiers can help filter them out and improve air quality.

 

Indoor Air Pollutants

According to the EPA, the quality of air indoors is worse than it is out of doors. There are sources of air pollution everywhere: new carpeting or flooring, cleaning products, tobacco, pet dander, dust, and even the central heating and cooling systems. Those combined with insufficient ventilation means that airborne contaminants don't get diluted or carried outside. Instead, they are left to their own devices, polluting the air we breathe. Such conditions can result in respiratory diseases, such as asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), as well as heart disease or cancer. Some conditions may even prove fatal in the long term.1

 

The Spread of COVID-19

The SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, spreads by airborne particles and droplets. Anyone infected with COVID releases the particles when they exhale. An exhalation counts as any time air leaves the body, such as breathing, speaking, singing, coughing, or sneezing. These coronavirus-laden droplets spread through the air and get inhaled by others, who then become infected. If they are not dispersed or cleaned, they can accumulate in the air in the room.2

Existing technology, such as HEPA filters, carbon filters, and ionizers, can filter out the vast majority of airborne pollutants. Even so, there are some contaminants that are simply too small to be caught by existing filters. SARS-CoV-2 is one of these contaminants. Enter the Airfree Filterless Air Purifier line, the only type of purifier that is FDA-approved to remove COVID-19 from the air.

 

What Makes Airfree Purifiers Different From Others?

Airfree purifiers operate without a filter. Instead, they have a heated ceramic core that boils the air inside it. The interior temperature reaches 400 degrees inside the core and destroys microorganisms regardless of size, including viruses. As of May 28, 2021, it is confirmed that the Airfree purifiers ceramic core also destroys the virus that causes COVID-19.
