Through the years our business has seen a large increase in HEPA air cleaner and HEPA air purifier sales to people suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease otherwise known as COPD.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) unfortunately is one of the most common lung diseases. It is unfortunate because it is most often caused by smoking cigarettes and cigars. COPD can also be caused by breathing second hand smoke or by breathing air pollution, fumes or toxic gasses and dusts in the workplace. The most common symptoms of COPD is difficulty breathing with a shortness of breath that gets worse with just mild activity. Another symptom is chronic bronchitis, which is long term coughing, wheezing and fatigue with large amounts of mucus. In time COPD often progresses into frequent respiratory infections, then to Emphysema and destruction of the lungs.

There is no cure for COPD however it can be slowed down by stopping all smoking and removing ones self from the unhealthy environment that is fueling the disease! Since the lung tissue is often inflamed COPD sufferers often benefit from utilizing high quality HEPA air cleaners and HEPA air purifiers to remove airborne dust, allergens, bacteria, viruses and mold spores in the main living spaces in both home and workplace indoor environments.

When customers with COPD and Emphysema ask us which air cleaning device will best fit their needs we give them choices of our high quality HEPA air cleaners and HEPA air purifiers. However we try to direct them to our TRACS HEPA air purifier (MADE IN THE USA) with non-ozone producing ultraviolet light system that will not only remove 99.99 percent of all airborne particulates and allergens, they will also kill any viruses, bacteria or mold spores in the air that often cause big problems for people with inflamed lung tissue that are suffering from COPD or Emphysema. The TRACS HEPA air purifier has the USA patent on the design of aiming its ultraviolet lights into the intake side of the HEPA air filter, which allows the machine to kill viruses, bacteria and mold spores BEFORE they can penetrate into the air purifiers HEPA filter. Also the TRACS HEPA air purifier is extremely quiet and one of the only air purifier units on the market that can pass a zero laser particle count test!

It is both our customers and our hope that by removing ones self from a smoking, chemical and allergen filled environment and by using our TRACS HEPA air purifiers to keep the indoor air quality (IAQ) clean, they may be able to use less medications and steroids to treat their COPD or Emphysema.
