Air Filters for Wildfire Smoke
As wildfires spread throughout California leaving behind nothing but record-breaking air pollution and dangerous smoke that can cause upper respiratory problems and a variety of illnesses, it is important to protect your indoor air quality.
Wildfire smoke can travel along the US jet stream dispensing smoke and polluted particles across the entire country affecting people hundreds of miles away. Being exposed and inhaling too much smoke can affect everyone, especially people with heart disease, lung disease, seniors and young children. As fires continue to blaze and air quality worsens, it is important to reduce prolonged exposure and take precaution by protecting your indoor air quality with carbon pleated air filters that absorb smoke, odor, and harmful fine particles.
Wildfires can not only affect your health but can damage your HVAC systems and machinery. Wildfire soot and ash can clog and buildup along air intakes often damaging machinery and equipment from high restriction. Using carbon pleated air filters or bulk carbon rolls will help protect expensive equipment and HVAC systems from destructive smoke and ash.
Volcanic Air Filters
Volcanic smog (VOG) created by the eruptions can cause a variety of health issues including: headaches, respiratory congestion, itchy eyes and flu like symptoms.
Upgrading your air filter to a carbon air filter can help reduce VOG symptoms by capturing fine airborne contaminates including sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, hydrochloric acid and carbon monoxide.
If VOG is high in your area, take precaution by:
- Upgrading your air filtration
- Stay indoors as much as possible keeping windows and doors closed. Use an air conditioner.
- Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated
- Use a vinyl or rubber face mask when going outside
