Best Asthma and Allergy Prevention Methods: What Can you Do?

According to recent reports, an estimated one in five Americans suffers from allergy or asthma symptoms. Allergies now rank 5th in the US in chronic diseases, and an estimated 8% of the US now suffers from asthma symptoms. Many believe this increase in asthma and allergy sufferers can be traced back to poor air quality. The triggers that cause asthma attacks and allergy flare ups, most often live in the air you breathe. Without realizing it, you are breathing in toxic airborne pollutants, which come from smoke, pet dander, inadequate ventilation and more.  If you or someone you know suffers from asthma or allergies, there are prevention options to choose from.

The Austin Air HM405 Allergy Machine is a proven option for the prevention of asthma and allergies. According to Michael Domon, Sales Manager at The Austin Group:

“When we took part in a medical study, we were confident the results would confirm what we at Austin have known for many years. The study, published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, monitored a group of 225 children over a 12 month period, to determine how the use of our air cleaners could help to reduce the number of unscheduled hospital visits. The results were clear, for the children using our air cleaners, the number of visits was reduced by a remarkable 18.5%.”

These results were made possible by the air purifiers’ ability to ease asthma and allergy symptoms by reducing smoke, germs, allergens and more. The Austin Air Allergy Machine features a 3 speed control and cleans rooms up to 1,500 square feet.
