To ensure your home or office space is clean and hygienic it is beneficial to make sure the air circulating is clean. The best and easiest way to do this is with the use of an air purifier. An air purifier is a device which removes contaminants from the air. Depending on the device they are beneficial to allergy sufferers and asthmatics, and can reduce or eliminating second-hand smoke, dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and dust mite feces.
With the advancement in technology, air purifiers are becoming increasingly capable of capturing a greater number of bacterial, virus, and lung damaging particulates. Several scientific studies are also finding that poor air quality can be a contributing factor of some forms of cancer, respiratory illnesses, COPD, and other pulmonary infections and illnesses. This is why we at McHardy Vacuum find it critical to provide products that can help improve the quality of life to the people who visit our stores.
It is our opinion the most effective air purifier for residential use is the IQAir air purifiers. The IQAir systems have been rated the #1 Air Purifier by several sources including: Consumers Digest, Newsweek, Discovery Health, and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, who actually use the machines in the homes they build. The American Lung Association has partnered with IQAir for their indoor air quality program due to the machines having a dust emission of “0” zero parts per million, and the ability to clean 600 cubic feet of air per hour.
IQ Air purifiers do not produce ozone which can irritate breathing problems, and feature an indicator light for when the filter needs replaced. This feature saves you money by taking the guess work out of filter changes – based on actual run time and machine settings the unit will tell you when the filter is becoming less effective.
