Hey if it was about sports or something I might want to debate
, but on important health matters I`m quite open to learning and correction if need be. It was kind of you to take the time to offer this information which is actually good news.
I wrote that post venting and with my face packed with congestion right by my new air purifier. I actually meant to come back and edit it but forgot. In any case, it was this statement from a review that led me to believe that less expensive air purifers may well let most particles pass on by.
"When measured by number of particles, rather than weight, 90% of all air contaminants are smaller than the HEPA standard 0.3 microns. The critical importance of air purifier efficiency is kept buried by the industry. This is one of several reasons why I do not consider IQAir purifiers “expensive”. True efficiency is not cheap, but low efficiency air purifiers bypass fine particles over and over again. As time passes, static backpressure builds up ahead of partly blocked HEPA filters. Cheaper units allow increased bypassing as the filter ages. Fine particles coat the inefficient air purifiers' exhaust passage surfaces, making the unit itself a repository of the finest lung penetrators! After about a year, stand back when you turn them on. So how is this inexpensive? A major purpose of this website is to fully document the bypassing process." Ed Sherbenou
I was impressed by a number of reviews offered by this gentleman. Perhaps he is missing something or I have misinterpreted him, and I would be interested in hearing your take.
Anyway I went to see a friend at the beach night. I left home with a packed and draining nose and it all disappeared when I got there. Allergies stayed away all evening and have been gone over 24 hours since, here at home, with my new air purifier on high the whole time. Not bad. I still have serveral more waves of cleaning to do. I plan to get rather radical with it.
