Is My Home’s Air Making My Kids Sick?

Your child struggles to breathe —day and night. Wheezing, coughing, and gasping. It breaks your heart to hear it.

The pediatrician said allergies and asthma are to blame. Sure, he offered pills and an inhaler, which helps. Although, you’d rather knock out the source of the allergy and irritation.

According to the American Lung Association, poor indoor air quality can cause asthma and other respiratory issues—particularly for young children.

Scary and sad. Indoor air pollution is real and dangerous.

You know your HVAC comes with a filter, but is it good enough?

Probably not. Average filters only block about half of all possible irritants.

Read on to learn about indoor air pollution, discover an innovative air cleaning system, and explore how it compares to traditional measures.

Danger of Indoor Air Pollution

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that in-home levels of pollution are on average between 2-5 times worse than the outdoors.

You read that right: 2-5 times worse.

You’re beginning to understand why indoor air pollution creates allergies and asthma. You and your children breathe in your home’s air every day.

For allergies and asthma, particulates in the air cause the most harm. Sensitive lungs can be triggered by the air they breathe in on a daily basis.

Particulates include:

  • Mold
  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Cigarette Smoke

What Can You Do?

Regrettably, less than you’d like.

You can’t pick the mold and pollen out of the air by hand.

If your child suffers from asthma or allergies caused by polluted indoor air, you need a whole-house air cleaning solution.

Good news: we just happen to have an innovative one for you.

Introducing: The One Hour Air MicroPower Guard

Exclusive to One Hour Air, the MicroPower Guard is the best of the best at eliminating indoor air pollution.

How Does it Work?

The MicroPower Guard is installed in your current HVAC system.

An electrical current charges the MicroPower Guard, creating a magnetic field. The magnetic field polarizes both the MicroPower Gaurd pad and the harmful airborne particles. This creates a powerful attraction between the pad and the particles, permanently trapping the particles.

All you need to do is simply replace the dirty filter pad every three months. When you throw out the filthy used filter, think: that could have been in my kid’s lungs.

How Effective is it?

Extremely effective.

Want to get more specific?

The average air filter is rated at 40%-50% efficiency.

The MicroPower Guard is rated at 97% efficiency.

The MicroPower Guard blocks particles as small as .3 microns. How small is that? An average follicle of hair is 100 microns in diameter.

Got your attention now?

Good. Keep reading though because our air cleaner isn’t just statistically the best, it also doesn’t restrict home air flow like high efficiency filters. Bonus.

Air Flow Issues

Air filters above 40%-50% efficiency block a greater percentage of pollutants, but that comes at an annoying price. More efficient filters cause your house to feel stuffy, because they restrict air movement.

The One Hour Air MicroPower Guard doesn’t create that stuffy feeling. That’s because the charged pad doesn’t block air flow, it simply extracts the harmful particles.

If it helped your child’s health, you’d tolerate stuffy air without complaining. But with the MicroPower Guard, you don’t need to compromise.

Get Protected

Are you concerned your home air is 2-5 times more polluted than the outside?
