Are you actually breathing in sickness?

Sneezing, chronic coughs, a runny nose, nasal congestion, itchy, watery and red eyes, skin rashes, sinus headaches, difficulty breathing, poor sleep quality and the inability to concentrate are the symptoms of allergy related problems.  Even asthma is really an allergic reaction in the lungs.  And people with allergies may also develop sinusitis.

The most common triggers for these conditions are air-borne irritants.  And we seem to be getting more and more susceptible to these triggers.  A 2005 study revealed that more than 22.2 million Americans, including 6.55 million children, have asthma.  In Malaysia, the figure is between 1.6 – 2.0 million, and rising dramatically.

Because allergies get worse with each successive allergen exposure, minimizing exposure to all allergens is vital for all allergic individual.  By reducing the level of contaminants in the air we can help alleviate some of these problems.  And using an effective air purifier is one way to do it.

 

Are you really breathing easy?

According to the stringent United States Environment Protection Agency, indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air outdoors.

Indoor air is generally dirtier than the air outside, because a house can be a source of air contaminants for so many reasons.  Moisture in our humid climate can lead to the development of dangerous mold and mold spores.  Cooling systems circulate dust particles and bacteria throughout the house.  Pets shed fur and give off dander, while smokers pump toxins into the air.  Pollen and other outdoor allergens can blow in through open doors and windows.  And even the chemical products we use to clean our homes can contaminate the air we breathe.  These invisible contaminants that exist in the air that we breathe can jeopardise our health.

The end result is that the average house tends to concentrate contaminants in greater quantities than the outdoors.  This is bad news for everyone, but especially dangerous for children and individuals with allergies and respiratory difficulties.

 

Not all air purifiers are equal

Indoor air purifiers can make a dramatic improvement to the quality of air in your home, but not all products work well.  Learning a little about the technology available and substances removed from the air will help you make an informed decision that can improve the health of your entire family.

 

The Honeywell advantage

Honeywell International is a global organization operating in 3 regions and more than 20 locations across the world.  The company’s largest business segment, Honeywell Aerospace, manufactures high-performance turbofan and turboprop engines.  In 2006, Honeywell International produced close to 9 million turbos for automotive applications in every corner of the world.

Jet engines and air purifiers seem worlds apart, but they both utilize the same superior turbo technology that has become Honeywell International’s area of expertise.  The same turbo technology that wins wars is also used to battle air-borne contaminants, and it gives Honeywell Air Purifiers the edge over other air purifiers.

 

The choice of doctors should be yours as well

Every Honeywell Air Purifier has been given Clean Air Delivery Ratings (CADR) by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM).
