When water has been run through an activated carbon filter, we can certainly taste the difference! But what about the air we breathe?
Harmful airborne pollutants are less easy to detect, yet the World Health Organization reports that indoor air pollution causes about 1.6 million deaths annually and contributes to chronic respiratory diseases.
Not to be a fear monger, but this should really prompt us to think about the indoor air quality within our homes, and what we can do to control that.
Grassroots carries AllerAir air filtration units. We have a wide range of air purifiers that eliminate dust, allergens, mold, airborne pathogens and much more from your indoor air.
These AllerAir air filters are made in Canada, and are encased in steel housing, so we know that they are made to last, and will never produce chemical off-gassing.
Each AllerAir unit contains a series of different filters that specialize in removing various contaminants from the air in your home. As air travels through the unit, it first moves through a fibrous prefilter, which removes larger bits of dust, pet hair and other things that float around your home.
Then, it’s strained through the high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, which traps all the microscopic particles. This is important because the smaller the particle, the deeper it can be inhaled into your lungs.
Finally, in a standard unit, the air then passes through a deep bed of activated carbon, which removes volatile organic compounds and other chemical contaminants from your air.
The result is pure, clean air.
In addition to the basic system described above, you can also customize your own unit with additional filters. Does someone in your family smoke? Add a tar trapping filter so that no one else has to deal with second hand smoke and tar residue in the house. Is someone ill? Add a UV lamp to kill bacteria and viruses so that pathogens do not spread and infect others.
Breathe clean and drink pure!
