Air Purification SystemsDizziness, coughing, wheezing and loss of breath are some of the symptoms of an asthma attack. For a sufferer, it can be a very frightening experience. Asthma is a respiratory condition that affects children and adults. It can either develop during life or be passed on genetically. Loss of breath is caused by inflammation of the airways which often leads to excess mucous being produced, making an attack even more severe.

If you suffer with asthma, an air purification system may help you breathe better. The same goes for people with allergic rhinosinusitis (hay fever) and emphysema or chronic bronchitis (COPD).

The primary triggers of an asthma attack include airborne particles, such as dust and pollen, as well as tobacco smoke and chemicals, like paint fumes. Because most indoor contaminants provoke attacks, fresh and clean air is extremely important in the homes of asthma sufferers.

The first step in managing the unpleasant symptoms is to remove sources of indoor pollutants. You can do this by investing in an air purification system, which not only eliminates particles, but also fumes and odors. Even sufferers of mild asthma attacks need clean air in their everyday environments. In fact, air purification is vital for anyone who suffers with a respiratory-related condition.
