My name is Barry Cohen and I am the owner of Absolute Air Cleaners And Allergy Products. In business since 1989 I am an expert in indoor air quality and what to look for when choosing the best air cleaner or air purifier that will fit your direct needs for allergy control.

Air Cleaners And Air Purifiers To Avoid!

There are many air cleaners and air purifiers on the market claiming to be the best for allergy control. You can find them everywhere including local hardware stores, Home Depot, LOWES, Wal-Mart, K-Mart and drug stores. These air-cleaning units use pleated filters, polyester pads, electro statically charged metal plates and HEPA filters to trap dust and allergens.

Please know that the great majority of these department store offered air cleaners and air purifiers are made in China and they are VERY LOW QUALITY. These cheap low quality plastic air cleaners and air purifiers have a very low air exchange rate per hour even in small bedrooms, the filters and cabinets are not sealed properly which causes them to leak a large amount of dirty air back into your indoor air environment while they are operating for you and your family or co-workers to breathe and react to again! Also the small HEPA air filters and pre-filters in low quality units have to be replaced often and they will be more expensive in the long run then the filter replacements in the much higher quality units available online by professional air cleaner and air purifier specialty companies. Some of the lower quality air cleaners and air purifiers often sold on the market include brand names such as Honeywell, Bionaire, Sharper Image, Rabbit Air, ORECK, BlueAir, Whirlpool and Surround Air. There are many others!

Best Choice Of Air Cleaners And Air Purifiers For General Allergy Control!

When searching for quality air cleaners or air purifiers to provide the best allergy control your best bet is to do your own diligent research online. If you do the research you will find an entirely different assortment of air cleaners and air purifiers then that is available in your local department stores! High quality air cleaners and air purifiers will include HEPA air filters that are sealed in the cabinet, which is usually made of steel to avoid unhealthy chemical out-gassing which plastic cabinet units have a real problem with. HEPA filters operating in quality air cleaners and air purifiers are not expensive to replace and they will last 5-6 years before they need to be replaced. Most high quality HEPA air cleaners and air purifiers contain pounds of activated carbon and zeolite to remove the dangerous and health problem causing out-gassing chemicals that release from building materials and home furnishings that include new and newer carpeting, particle board furniture, insulation, paints, stains and pesticides. High quality HEPA air cleaners and HEPA air purifiers are quieter, more powerful and have a much higher air exchange rate per hour in any size space or open room in areas up to 1000 square feet. A high quality unit will clean and exchange the air through the air cleaners HEPA filter up to 15 times per hour in an average sized 12’ X 15’ bedroom. This is a HUGE DIFFERENCE compared to a the lower quality air cleaners and air purifiers on the market that can only do 2 or 3 air exchanges per hour in smaller bedroom sizes. High quality brands and models of HEPA air cleaners include the Austin Air Health Mate HEPA air cleaners, EZ air HEPA air cleaners and AllerAir HEPA air cleaners.

If You Have Allergies To Mold Spores

Mold spore allergies can be debilitating because chronic mold spore exposure can weaken the immune system to cause all sorts of different health problems. High quality standard HEPA air cleaners and air purifiers do have the ability to grab mold spores into their HEPA filters! However if the relative humidity is high enough, mold can quickly grow in the HEPA filter itself. This will reduce its cleaning life and in major mold contaminations the HEPA filter can be so full of mold it can release mold spores back into the indoor environment bringing cross contamination harm to the home or office space and to the people living or working in those spaces! However there is an answer!

HEPA air cleaners and HEPA air purifiers can control mold spores, bacteria and viruses in the indoor air environment if they include a ultraviolet light system to kill and control these biological contaminants!

The best HEPA air purifier on the market that does it all and includes an ultraviolet (UV) light system is the TRACS HEPA air purifier. MADE IN THE USA, the size of the TRACS is 15 inches square by 21 inches high. The TRACS HEPA air purifier includes a non-ozone producing ultraviolet (UV) light system that has the great advantage of holding the important patented design of aiming the ultraviolet lights into the intake side of the HEPA filter. This design allows the TRACS to kill any bacteria; mold spores or airborne viruses BEFORE they can penetrate into it’s long lasting HEPA filter. The TRACS HEPA air purifier has a 4-speed motor and it is extremely quiet! The after market filter replacement cost on the TRACS is very low compared to other HEPA air purifiers and HEPA air cleaners on the market and the TRACS will pass a zero laser particle count test which means zero amounts of allergens and particles will escape from this HEPA air purifiers while it is operating and cleaning the air in the home or office.

The TRACS HEPA air purifier with ultraviolet light (UV) system will clean the air up to 12 times per hour in an average size 12’x15’ bedroom space and will do a good job of cleaning the air in open rooms or areas up to 1000 square feet in size. The TRACS HEPA air purifier is routinely used in hospital rooms to protect people from biological contaminants that are going through organ transplants, bone marrow transplants and chemotherapy. However most TRACS HEPA air purifiers are sold to homes and offices to protect families and office workers with allergies and asthma from airborne allergens that include mold spores, bacteria and viruses.
