Pure Air Systems HEPA Filtration System Rescues California Home During Fires

As everyone knows, being around smoke from a forest fire is extremely difficult and dangerous as smoke inhalation can be deadly. For California this past year, the forest fires have been nothing short of horrific. Many homes were lost and smoke hung in the air for weeks in many areas of California.

Pure Air Systems, an Indiana based company, has been making fan powered, HEPA based air filtration systems since 1985. Their systems are capable of being used either in conjunction with an existing HVAC system or as stand alone units. The partial by-pass configuration of the units allow for complete filtration of the home environment while also adding the ability to introduce outside, filtered fresh air to pressurize the home.

A homeowner in the San Francisco area purchased a PAS Model 600HS HEPA Plus system to do just that. His ability to bring in outside air through the 600HS unit and pressurize his home allowed him to stay inside and almost eliminate any smoke or odor from coming into his home. In fact, many of his neighbors also came to his house to escape from the smoke that was everywhere in the SF Bay area.

The 600HS unit has three filters. A dual layer ring panel filter to capture large particles and keep the HEPA clean, a 10 lb carbon filter to remove odors and a scanned 99.99% commercial grade HEPA filter to remove sub micron particulate. Pure Air Systems also makes larger versions of this filtration system ranging from 50 CFM to 2,000 CFM. These systems have been on the market for over 34 years and are the best performing HEPA based air filtration systems on the market today.

Pollen Season Is Coming – Time For HEPA Filters

Now that February is here, Spring is just around the corner and with the warmer temperatures and rain comes the new production of grass, tree and ragweed pollen. Allergies to airborne pollen and other airborne allergens is actually more challenging in many ways than fighting off a cold or the flu which can last from a few days to a week.

A person suffering from airborne pollen will have to endure the process for many weeks and even months in some cases. And, the allergy medicine primarily helps relieve some of the symptoms but at a very minimal rate. The only true way to remove yourself from the airborne pollen is to…well remove yourself from the airborne pollen.

Pure Air Systems has been making and selling HEPA based, fan powered air filtration systems since 1985 and is now one of the leaders in high performance HEPA air filtration systems.

PAS has a method of attaching any of their HEPA systems to an existing, ducted HVAC system or the systems can be used as stand-alone units. This means you can have commercial grade, certified HEPA filters continuously filtering the air in your home, office or work place and in addition the systems can be used to slightly pressurize the area to totally eliminate the potential for any infiltration of outdoor particulate.

Thousands of these systems have been sold over the past 32 years and for those individuals who have used the 600HS, 1200HS or 2000HS PAS systems their issues with allergies due to pollen and other airborne particulate have been reduced to the point where they have little or few symptoms.

When magicians place a person in a box, cover the box, then pull the cover away within seconds and the person is gone, this trick is often referred to as misdirection or sometimes called slight of hand. In either case the idea is to get you to look one way while the action is actually taking place somewhere else. Simple, effective and easily done by trained entertainers who couch themselves as Magicians.

Misdirection was, and in many cases still is, used often in the early 30’s and 40’s when a peddler selling a product would demonstrate the operation and value of the item to the audience. When you purchased the item, always packed in a box, took it home it often didn’t work or would not perform at the same level as described by the salesmen. When you went to return the item the seller was often no where to be seen. Even today with the “As Seen On TV” products flood the dollar stores and discount houses, the products often fail to meet the perceived expectations.

The technicians at Pure Air Systems have been manufacturing commercial grade, certified, fan powered HEPA based air filtration systems  since 1985. From the beginning the systems produced by PAS always met or exceeded the performance expectations of their customers. The PAS systems are a more expensive product than some of the other non-HEPA based filtration, air purification and electronic air cleaners currently on the market. Unfortunately many of these “lesser performing devices” claim to provide the same particle reduction capabilities as HEPA filters, but at a lower cost.

Often times a new Pure Air Systems customer will try one, two or more alternate “air filtration/purification” devices before they actually purchase one of the seven different HEPA models offered by PAS. The other “HEPA Type” or “HEPA Like” companies provide inaccurate information as to the overall ability of their products to remove and/or reduce the levels of harmful airborne particulates and contaminants. But because the systems are less expensive individuals will buy the hype only to find their is truth in the statement, “you get what you pay for.”

This is not to say that other types of filtration and purification systems are effective. But for those companies, institutions and medical operations that require initial efficiency’s of 99.99% at 0.3 microns or larger, then the only option they have is to use the HEPA based systems by Pure Air Systems. Don’t be fooled by the imitators.

Kids Without iPads

It’s a sad state of affairs when you see a group of pre-teen boys and girls mulling around with that sad look on their faces due to the fact that their parents won’t buy them an iPad. After all, being connected today is not a physical process but a virtual process. If you are not on Facebook or don’t have a Twitter account, or worse yet can’t Skype or Face Time with your friends who are you….really! Fear of being unconnected is more important today than not  having close personal friends.  It seems that having something that everyone else believes is essential to their existence as a human being is the next “Holy Grail.”

There is always push-back from a certain segment of the market when some new technology comes onto the scene and becomes ubiquitous overnight. Facebook, twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn have all made major in-roads in getting people to connect digitally and become part of their everyday lifestyle. But, regardless of what you think of social media, it has become a very important tool for organizations, businesses and associations, not to mention the millions of citizens on this planet that use it hourly if not daily.

Pure Air Systems was started in 1985, 10 years before the internet even started to become an alternate method of sharing information with the masses. In the early 1990’s email was becoming the in thing and it was evident that having a way to connect with potential customers outside the Midwest ( PAS is located in Indianapolis) was important in two ways. First, trying to locate potential customers in those days required more of a word of mouth and the use of hundreds of dollars a month in postage sending out literature to prospective clients. Second, there was no way to effectively connect with end users who had a need for a true HEPA based air filtration system.

In 1994 Pure Air Systems initiated www.pureairsystems.com. At that time only major corporations were putting a URL on the internet. Dial-up was the only connection option and Windows was the only true browser. The first  website for PAS was simply a landing page that was incorporated in a business forum that had hundreds of other URL’s listed as well. By 1995 PAS began to work with a small company that could develop a website design and the first of many PAS websites was born. Having a website also provided a mechanism for connecting with anyone who knew how to “surf the net” and it also provided another email address.

Today, Pure Air Systems has a very large website that incorporates all the data on their systems as well as video components and an online store for replacement filters. In addition, PAS has a Facebook page, Twitter account and an active blog site…of which this is one. In 1995 less than 4% of their new business was generated from the internet. In 2012 over 65% of their new business comes from the web….and their products are now sold around the world.
