Can any family afford the rapidly rising cost of asthma and allergy medications? Some inhalers that only cost $15 a few years ago are now more than $150 each. Generally, more than one medicine is used to manage asthma and treat sudden attacks. And since allergens can cause worse symptoms, many patients take expensive allergy medicines, too.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, asthma costs in the U.S. add up to more than $56 billion per year and causes more than 3,000 deaths annually. Despite the risk, many patients are choosing to take their asthma medicines less frequently or not at all in order to save money. This results in expensive hospital visits that could have been avoided.
Asthma symptoms are aggravated by irritating dust, pollen, pet dander, mold and other particulates. If you could eliminate or reduce your exposure to these triggers, you would logically be able to decrease the use of your allergy and asthma medicines.
Obviously, the air outside is full of these irritants, but they also lurk in every corner of a home, school or office. That's why the Environmental Protection Agency has repeatedly stated that Indoor air quality is often worse than outdoor air. So, staying indoors doesn't really help avoid asthma and allergy triggers. Unless you can effectively filter out odors and irritants.
Purifan air purifiers have a 5-stage filtration system that includes charcoal and HEPA filters. It's been proven to trap particles that are as small as .3 Microns. A Purifan system can clean all the air in a 20 x 20 foot room 40 times per hour! Schools who have installed Purifans have reported teachers and students take fewer sick days, and some even saw a 70% decrease in logged student inhaler use! How much money could such a reduction save YOUR family?
