The best HEPA air purifier in Australia

The best air purifier for allergies

, by AussiePharmaDirect, 5 min reading time

If asthma, hay fever or other allergies are affecting your quality of life, investing in the best HEPA air purifier possible may be the perfect solution for your problem.

Designed to trap allergens and improve the quality of the air you breathe, a good air purifier can be like an extra set of lungs to help you breathe easy.

The best air purifiers incorporate an H13 hospital-grade High Efficiency Particulate Air filter (HEPA) which when combined with Technostat® pre-filtration microporous filter technology and final stage carbon filters (like the InovaAir Purifier range), allows them to exceed HEPA filtration standards.

Normally only found in commercial environments such as hospitals and cleanrooms, they are certified to 99.95% minimum efficiency at 0.3 microns (tested down to 0.003 microns at 100% efficiency) to clear the air of airborne allergens, viruses, bacteria, pollen, dust mites, pet dander, dust, fungal spores, asbestos and cigarette smoke.

Pet friendly

You no doubt love your furry friend, but if you can’t go near them due to allergies, you can’t give them the love they deserve. And it’s not just their fur that is the problem. It’s also the dead flakes of their skin (dander) and saliva. This is particularly problematic if you are prone to asthma, as exposure can exacerbate the condition causing breathing difficulties, and in the worst-case scenario, an extreme allergic reaction called anaphylaxis.

Removing dander from the air you breathe lessens your exposure to the allergen, which combined with the appropriate medicine means more cuddles with your fur baby.

Mould allergy

The World Health Organization (WHO) has advised there is an association between exposure to mould and conditions such as asthma, allergic alveolitis and mould infections in susceptible people. Symptoms include a runny nose, sneezing, itchy / puffy / watery eyes, hives, and those with asthma may experience wheezing and difficulty breathing.

With Australia in its third consecutive year of La Nina, the wet weather will continue until at least the end of 2022, giving mould the opportunity to gain a foothold in your home or office. Inhalation of airborne spores is definitely not good for your health, so using appropriate cleaning techniques, along with a HEPA filter air purifier will keep you and your family safe.

Indoor air quality

You may not think about air quality unless you can see obvious smoke or pollution, but did you know that indoor air quality is actually more important than the transient air you breathe outside? Australians spend around 90% of their time indoors and poor indoor air quality can result in significant adverse impacts on your health.

Gas cookers and unflued gas heaters are major indoor pollutants. Other pollutants include microbial contamination, house dust mites, fungi, particulates and chemicals emitted by furniture, paint, carpet and stained floorboards.

Opening windows and doors to let in fresh air wherever possible helps to reduce the load, but a HEPA 13 filter air purifier will also go a long way to rectifying the indoor pollution that can trigger an allergic reaction.

Approved by the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice Program®

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, just under 2.7 million (10.7%) of Australians had asthma in 2020-21. For anyone impacted by asthma (and other allergies), it’s good to know that the InovaAir Purifier range is the only Australian made air purifier that is approved by the National Asthma Council of Australia’s Sensitive Choice program.
