With COVID restrictions easing, many of us are spending lots of time outside seeing friends and family. But for those with hay fever and other allergies this can be tough. Moreover, having spent so much time indoors during lockdowns, we’ve been exposed to lower levels of pollen to normal. This means a lower level of immunity, which can result in a more severe reaction to pollen. Therefore, when we are at home, we want it to be our sanctuary. Nevertheless, pollen can still enter the home causing allergic reactions. What’s the solution? Air purifiers clean your indoor air, removing pollen and other pollutants so you can relax at home in comfort.
This will come as great news to the millions of people suffering with hay fever, asthma and other conditions in the UK who particularly benefit from purified air. The UK has some of the highest allergy rates in the world, with around 30% of the population affected by hay fever whilst over 16% suffer from asthma. One such person benefitting from an air purifier is 30-year-old allergy-sufferer Aimee Law from Holme in Cambridgeshire. Aimee is severely allergic to all pollen types as well as being allergic to dust and she requires strong medication for her allergies. To try to tackle her allergies, Aimee recently started using the Vent-Axia PureAir Room air purifier and has been delighted with the result.
“I’ve recently moved to the countryside after getting my allergies under control; however, I have good days and bad days with my allergies. We have a big open plan living/kitchen/dining area and, with a puppy, our back door is always opening and closing allowing allergens into the home. I therefore placed the Vent-Axia PureAir Room in the corner of the room closest to the back door. The good news is that since using the air purifier my allergies have been much better and I don’t constantly have sore, puffy eyes”, explains Aimee.
Allergens are not the only pollutants the Vent-Axia PureAir Room tackles. It also removes a wide range of pollutants including those generated by cooking. Offering visible peace of mind, the Vent-Axia PureAir Room has an air quality display that shows the levels of PM2.5 from the integral air quality sensor with a traffic light system telling you if the air is good, bad or needs improving. Aimee explains: “I was surprised to find the air quality in the room was green when I first turned the air purifier on but this changed when my partner cooked dinner – the air purifier then went crazy flashing red to show the indoor air quality had plummeted. But, within 15 minutes the air purifier had cleaned the air and it went back down to green again.”
Aimee’s allergies are usually particularly severe at her parents’ house in Essex, even with taking medication; her allergy symptoms are still always bad. Aimee therefore thought she would put the Vent-Axia PureAir Room to the test when she last visited her parents taking the air purifier with her to see whether it also helped somewhere where she knew her allergies are severe.
“At my parents’ house I placed the Vent-Axia PureAir Room in a similar position to my own house near to the door to try to maximise the benefit. However, I turned the air purifier off during the night and the next morning I woke up with puffy eyes, so I switched the air purifier straight on and within 10 minutes my eyes felt a lot better. I didn’t struggle with my allergies the whole weekend that I was there and usually when I visit my eyes become really sore, especially in the evenings. My whole family suffers from bad hay fever but not once during my stay did anyone complain about sore eyes, when usually it’s a topic of conversation! In fact, my parents have now bought a Vent-Axia PureAir Room too as we realised it helped us all so much, so thank you!”
Indoor air can contain over 900 chemicals, particulates, biological materials, viruses and bacteria. Each of us breathes 9,000 litres a day with poor indoor air quality (IAQ) affecting the health of everyone in our homes. It is therefore vital to reduce indoor air pollution. To improve the air quality in your home, there are three main actions you can take: Reduce the number of pollutants you introduce into the air; Dilute the pollutants in the air by ensuring there is adequate ventilation introducing fresh clean air to the home; Purify by adding an air purifier to remove the remaining pollutants from the air you breathe.
Offering advanced air purification for your home, Vent-Axia’s new PureAir Room ticks all the right boxes. It cleanses the air removing harmful particles, neutralising bad smells and removing pollen and pet allergens, purifying the air you and your family breathe for a fresher and healthier home. Designed with an advanced 6-stage filtration system, the PureAir Room air purifier filters out mould, dust, viruses, PM2.5, VOCs, pet allergens and odours with its High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter removing 99.9% of particles. Working automatically the Vent-Axia PureAir Room senses the air quality and delivers increased filtration when it is needed to protect your health. The unit can also be set manually and has a timer that can run the unit for a specified number of hours before turning off. Lightweight and portable you can just move it and plug it in, so you can protect your health where you need it most. A bonus is it only uses as much energy as a light bulb.
As well as clean air, we all want a good night’s sleep. Therefore, the Vent-Axia PureAir Room comes with a sleep mode so that it can cleanse the air in your room while you sleep without disturbing you. The sleep mode turns off the display removing any light pollution from the unit.
Available in two versions, the Vent-Axia PureAir Room comes with an infra-red remote controller while the Vent-Axia PureAir Room X has all the functionality of the PureAir Room, plus the additional benefit of the TuyaSmart app which enables control of home appliances from anywhere using your smart phone.
