Living in Florida gives you a different perspective on how many of the seniors and active retirees see the world around them. For many of them the new, digitally driven lifestyles of the younger generation seem worlds apart from their storied histories. Some of these individuals had lead remarkable lives, many served in WWII and a large number were immigrants from all four corners of the world.

One of the things this older generation loves is the process of reliving their lives through the stories they tell you. For many of them this is very cathartic. You can see their eyes light up when they take you on one of their journey’s for perhaps the 20th time. There are times, however, when this living in the past process becomes more of an obsession than just a stroll down memory lane.

This same process of remembering the past as a better time often carries over to  how they feel about new technologies and different ways of doing things. There is no doubt that the world has changed dramatically and that advances in technology are difficult for those of us that live with it everyday let alone someone who still uses mail and the land line telephone as their primary communications protocol.

Pure Air Systems has been manufacturing commercial grade, certified HEPA based air filtration systems since 1985. The use of HEPA filters in the residential market was somewhat pioneered by PAS as previously most HEPA filters were used in the commercial and electronics industries. In 1985 few people outside the clean room or government really understood this technology yet it was fast becoming the filtration method of choice for reduction and removal of the small, respirable sized particles ( under 1 micron in size) that could be harmful to humans. Previously, a simple fiberglass or cotton based air filter or furnace filter were the norm. Simple to use, inexpensive and easy to find.

Pure Air Systems has been in business now for over 27 years selling HEPA based air filtration systems to the residential, commercial, institutional, medical and industrial markets. The adaption of this technology by the HVAC industry took many years. The ability to understand the rationale of using a fan powered, HEPA based unit in conjunction with an HVAC system seemed counter intuitive. Yet, today, the coupling of these two systems has become somewhat common place and has proven to be the most effective air filtration protocol for the residential market today.

The commercial and medical markets have always been fans of HEPA systems and in most cases could not operate without them. The need to understand technology and its benefits and features before you pass judgement on it because it looks different than what you are used to is a serious error. The past is the past. Remember the good times but adapt to the future. Resistance, as Darth Vader would say, is futile.

My name is Don Musilli. I started Pure Air Systems in 1985 and then sold it in 2006. I continue to consult for PAS and write their blog and control their Twitter account. I also, on occasion, make changes to the website. The company is now almost 26 years old and has been a major player in offering commercial grade, high performance HEPA and Carbon based filtration systems for the commercial, institutional, industrial and residential markets.

I currently reside in Englewood, Florida where I write blogs and do social media marketing for a number of clients.
