Be Heathy by Choice, Not by Chance

Air

Don't you just love to take deep breaths of fresh air? I do! Especially on mountain tops, by the ocean, in the forest, at home, during yoga and meditation. Then I discovered that indoor air is 100 times more polluted than the outdoor air in our most populated cities.

That carpeting, furniture, paint, paneling, cleaning agents and cooking all can emit toxic chemical vapors. And dust, pet dander, pollen and odors are typically in all household air. If that weren't enough, mold, mildew and dust mites may also be present.

Studies report that up to 90% of our time is spent indoors breathing poor quality air as our homes out-gas invisible toxins. Indoor air is #4 on the EPA's list of dangers and the pollution levels contribute to a combination of symptoms:

  • Asthma
  • Fatigue
  • Cancer
  • Acute Allergies
  • Vertigo and Nausea
  • Liver and Kidney Damage
  • Irritation of the Eyes, Nose, and Skin Ailments
  • Tiredness and Loss of Concentration
  • Central Nervous System Damage
  • Headaches
  • Memory Impairment

A simple solution, air filtration, is recommended to help combat this toxic onslaught. I discovered that not all air filtration systems are created equal. Many have been taken off the market for emitting ozone, a toxic gas. Some can generate other problems with noise pollution and the increase of one's electric bills.

I so appreciate that my lungs aren't the first filtration in my home! That I safely breathe indoor air that is clean, fresh and energized.

What I enjoy about the KenkoAir Purifier is that it replicates natural conditions, is environmentally friendly and energy efficient.

  1. A Multi-Stage Filtration System
    • A Pre-filter which is reusable
    • A Deodorizing Filter
    • An ULPA Filter, ultra low penetration air filter, which is significantly more effective than a HEPA filter, the longtime standard for hospital operating rooms and laboratories. ULPA filtration provides 99.99% removal of particles as small as 0.12 microns. The KenkoAir Purifier exceeds that with measured efficiency up to 99.9995%. No other home air filtration matches this level of performance.
  2. Essential Energy Generation: This unit emits the essential clean, fresh air energy found in natural settings, like waterfalls, rivers and in the forest. This type of natural energy provides a fresh clean feeling that is regarded as "therapy for mental stress."             
  3. Ozone Free: Many air filtration systems that claim to be cleaning your air are also releasing a byproduct called ozone into your home. The EPA has classified ozone as a toxic gas. The State of California has banned the sale of ozone-producing air systems and other states are expected to follow.
  4. High-efficiency Fan with a low noise level even at its highest speed.
  5. Air Quality Sensor that indicates air quality at all times.
  6. Green Technology / Energy Efficient: Awarded the U.S. EPA's Energy Star designation - your assurance that it is at least 35% more efficient than a standard model and saves a minimum of 215 kilowatt-hours per year.

Lightweight, easily portable and library quiet, it cleans and purifies the air inside my home with forest-fresh invigorating air, at a low cost to my electric bill and to our eco-system, while improving my health and the health of my family and friends.

Nikken also offers a compact design, the Air Wellness Traveler for use in automobiles. I have found that I am more alert and refreshed because of the clean, energized air.  Take it into your hotel room and enjoy the quality of air.  This model is great in bedrooms, home offices and dormitory rooms.

Testimonials

"I feel relieved having Nikken's air filtration system in my home. It immediately took care of the strong out-gassing odor of a new carpet. I am also amused and amazed when it senses and adjusts to compensate for changes in the air, like cooking odors, prior to my noticing. It makes me feel safe."

"I love the crispness of air in my home and the comfort of breathing that I experience. Nikken's air purification makes a big difference."

There is good news and bad news about indoor air: the bad news is that indoor air often contains higher concentrations of hazardous pollutants than outdoor air; however, the good news is that everyone can reduce indoor air pollution.

 

How Can The Air Inside Our Homes Be So Bad For Us?
