Home Health Care In A Box

The cost of health care continues to rise with much of the higher costs in prescription medicines and hospital treatments. We continue to see more “preventative” ideas for improving your health as you age. It is no surprise that your life style has significant impact on your short-term and long-term health. Excessive drinking, high fat food contents, smoking, lack of exercise and stress are all contributors to affecting your health.

However, one of the other areas that we continue to sweep aside but has a very significant impact on our lives is…the air we breathe.  We ingest thousands of sub-micron airborne particles every day and they come from a wide variety of areas. Grasses, pollen, ragweed, un-burned hydrocarbons, heavy metals, inorganic compounds, soot, dirt and finely ground animal particles.

Pure Air Systems has been around since 1985 making HEPA based air filtration systems for the residential, commercial, medical, institutional and industrial markets. These systems remove a very high percentage of harmful airborne particulate in any environment. Over the past 32 years we have been able to show that there is a direct correlation between living in a filtered environment and the reduction of respiratory dysfunctions, allergies and certain skin irritation issues.

Ingestion of harmful airborne particulate is also dependent upon where you live in the U.S.  The Midwest has a more stagnant air problem with a lot of particulate coming from fossil fuel (coal fired ) power plants and the industrial complex.  The coastal areas tend to get more fresh air as the ocean breezes bring in clean air from the oceans. This is especially true in State like Florida and California.

Use of air filtration in your home and office can help reduce medical costs as they help reduce the potential for health problems directly tied to the air you breathe.

Your Health – Your Choice

From the TV to the newspapers, magazines, online media, Facebook, etc. etc., you are constantly besieged with warnings and comments about how to best take care of your body to ensure a long healthy life. We all know the dangers of cigarette smoke, lack of exercise and eating all the wrong  foods, but we never think much about the air we breathe.

In many parts of the US when the weather conditions are right, you might have an “ozone” alert and are warned to stay inside or minimize your outside activities and reduce your driving if at all possible. In the summer months these “nozone” periods may last a few days to weeks at a time. The levels of both ozone and suspended particles can be extremely high on these days and breathing in large amounts of these pollutants can even affect  healthy people.  While staying indoors can help….it is not the total solution.

You have heard the comments about indoor pollution being worse than outdoor pollution a hundred times from air filtration manufacturers and home builders alike. In essence, this is true. The tighter home and building construction designed to help conserve energy use for heating and cooling has also created a tighter living and working environment. It has also reduced the amount of fresh air circulating in the house or building.

For over 25 years Pure Air Systems has been making HEPA and Carbon based, fan powered, commercial grade air filtration systems that can really help you improve your indoor environment. The HS series of PAS filtration systems are designed so they can either be attached to the return air side of any HVAC system or used as stand-alone units. In either installation configuration the HEPA systems can not only filter all the air in your home 48 times a day but also introduce outside, filtered fresh air. This dual-style capability is unique to the PAS line of air filtration products.

HEPA filters are the only true way to consistently remove the small, sub-micron particles that can be harmful when ingested into your lungs. Over time even small concentrations of harmful airborne particles can create significant health issues. The longer we live in our increasingly polluted environment the more doctors and scientists are convinced environmental factors are major contributors to a wide range of chronic diseases.

Young children are especially susceptible to lung damage at early ages as their lungs are not fully developed until after 10 years of age. Maintaining a relatively clean environment for children and also older adults with reduced lung capacity is critical. With medical costs sky rocketing , preventative health practices are essential today for minimizing unnecessary medical expenses.

Pure Air Systems has systems installed in thousands of homes, offices, commercial operations, medical facilities and major pharmaceutical operations across the US and around the world.

Soccer…Love It or Hate It!

With all the hype about the World Cup of Soccer being played in South Africa and the US having a pretty good start one would think these would be the games to watch here in the US.  But not so. It seems that the “most popular sport in the world” is not really appreciated here. Yes there is soccer for the kids and some high schools and most colleges play soccer, but very few people watch it and even fewer understand it.

Much of the problem with the acceptance of soccer is the fact that it is not an American sport. Baseball, Football and Basketball are all US born sports with lots of history and tradition. US sports fans like “their” sports. Even Hockey has some challenges being accepted here in the US because it is a Canadian sport. And, like soccer, Hockey is not easy to understand.

US citizens are conditioned to what some would call the “immediate gratification syndrome” or keep me excited because I get bored easily issue. This is true with almost anything we do. We have little patience and are not prone to enjoying the small subtle parts of life.  The US sports provide high drama, immediate gratification and are relatively easy to understand.

Our impatience and lack of trying to understand the basics of an issue are carried through to everything we do. This is especially true in the way Americans view health care. When we have a health problem we immediately go to our Doctor. We don’t take time to understand the underlying reason for our malady, we want an immediate answer to our unknown condition. And we want some form of treatment…..NOW!  It has been determined that almost 40% of all Doctor visits are not really necessary.

Pure Air Systems has been manufacturing HEPA and Carbon based air filtration systems since 1985. A great majority of their residential customers suffer from allergies and chemical sensitivities. For many of these individuals the use of various medications or just plain isolation from the contaminant  source have proved to be of minimal value. However, for many of these individuals the commercial grade HEPA systems have provided immediate relief when applied and used appropriately.

For people with allergies caused by airborne allergens and particulate, the use of the certified, commercial grade HEPA systems provides for a reduction of 99.99% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger. When a significant amount of these particles are removed from the environment those individuals who react to these allergens get relief in a very short period of time. Usually within 24 hours of operation.

We suggest you go to our website and look at our complete line of HEPA and Carbon based air filtration systems. There is a lot of information there to better help you understand the systems capabilities and how they can impact your life. Our website is: www.pureairsystems.com
