The Unseen Problem: Indoor Air Quality

Over the past twenty years, increasing amounts of scientific evidence have indicated that the air in homes, offices and schools is often more polluted than the air outside. While we think of our homes and offices as clean and pollution free, the air we take in with each breath may contain millions of contaminants 50 times smaller than the cross section of a human hair. Dust mites and cockroach particles; dog and cat allergens; pollen particles and mold spores to name a few.

In addition, smoke particles, volatile organic compounds, and airborne viruses and bacteria can also find their way easily into your home. These are even smaller particles that often "catch a ride" and are transported by larger particles. Mold, dust mites, and bacteria feed off of larger dust particles and both animal and human skin cells that are shed in the home environment.

We Americans spend nearly 90 percent of our time indoors. That means, that for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to indoor air pollution than outdoor. Children and older adults are more susceptible to indoor air pollution because they spend longer periods of time inside. Additionally, people who suffer from respiratory diseases such as asthma are also more susceptible, as indoor pollution can aggravate their conditions.

The Superior Solution: AllergyZone

AllergyZone™ filters are the result of twenty years of study and concern about an often overlooked way to improve indoor air quality. James L. Sublett, M. D., the founder of AllergyZone LLC and the principal designer of AllergyZone filters, was troubled that so many of his new patients had neither used top quality disposable air filters nor changed them on a regular basis.

Dr. Sublett set out to apply the new filtration technology to disposable residential filters. Working with Koch Filter Corporation, one of the world's leading filter companies that supplied the highest quality filters to major hospital complexes, he created a high quality pleated design that utilizes state of the art filtration media for outstanding performance. The AllergyZone filter was born.

The AllergyZone XL1500 Ultra is a disposable high efficiency pleated panel furnace filter. AllergyZone filters are designed to provide higher efficiency and better overall performance than other home furnace and air conditioning filters. It is capable of filtering over 90% of the allergens and other small particles commonly found in you indoor air. The AllergyZone XL1500 Ultra has received the highest MERV efficiency rating available: a 12. This meets or exceeds all other pleated filters available for use in the home.
