Smell the Freshness



Actually, many of us have trouble detecting almost any smell, appealing or otherwise.  And for years, government studies have revealed the often terrible quality of indoor air.  Homes, offices, factories... the list is endless, along with the problems.  Allergies, asthma, dripping noses and constant sinus suffering, plus a range of other health challenges conspire against our breathing freely and clearly.


Recently, we began testing a variety of air cleaners, filters, purifiers and various gadgets claiming to make air healthier and more pleasant to breathe.  After all, you can't relax, sleep or concentrate well when suffering from sneezing, wheezing, coughing and running noses.  Plus, we all know at least one person with a dog or cat to which they are allergic - but they understandably refuse to part with the furry family member.


HEPA filters are fine for many people, but, we wanted to take the next step - assuming we could.  We wanted to solve a wide range of olfactory challenges with one device.  Happily, we discovered Airfree®, billed as the "most tested air purifier in the world."  Here are the data and comparisons: http://www.airfree.com/testes/testeshome_usa.htm


Naturally, all that testing in real working conditions is fine, but it means little until you test it against your challenges.  Need to get rid of mold and mildew?  Make allergens and dust floating about your environment harmless?  The noise-free, Airfree® will impress you from day one.  It is a "plug-and-play" unit, in that you have nothing to set up, no filters to clean and no maintenance worries (or cost).


If your pet has allergy problems (yes, that happens), one of the most eye-opening tests can be to place an Airfree® in your pet's area, then observe how allergy symptoms soon fade away.  Yes, it is mighty hard to fool your pet!  Getting rid of bacteria, virus, pet dander, dust mites, mold and pollen are not easy to see visually, of course.  But, as your environment is gradually cleaned (usually over a few days), the results you experience speak loudly.


For scientific details, reassure yourself by checking: http://www.airfree.com/why_usa.htm but the short story is, Airfree® uses a natural air convection process to destroy allergens, etc - and without U/V lighting or potentially harmful ozone.  Actually, Airfree is the only air purifier that reduces corrosive ozone (up to 26% of ozone is destroyed every time the air passes through the ceramic core). Their Thermodynamic Sterilizing System (TSS™) sterilizes without any moving parts, and with zero maintenance.  This also means you save considerably by not having filters, lights, ionizers or generators to replace.


With an Airfree® you may soon wake up more refreshed and without a runny nose.  One unit made a huge difference in our office area, and we will soon be adding another for our home.
