California Bans Ozone Generators
Marketing strategies for these devices had targeted the population with respiratory difficulties claiming to reduce the irritants in the air and reduce their respiratory symptoms.
However, the public, was deceived. Ozone is in fact a dangerous gas that can cause, rather than alleviate, breathing difficulties. Ozone has been linked to a number of respiratory issues including respiratory tract irritation. Ozone generators have also caused asthma attacks in people with existing respiratory difficulties. The harsh reality of the situation is that any ozone emitted from an air cleaner would have to greatly exceed public-health standards in order to effectively eliminate any significant amount of contaminants from the air.
The California Air Resources Board voted to ban purifiers that emit more than 0.05 parts per million of ozone. All existing models must pass tests and be certified for sale in the California market by the CARB. Any model exceeding ozone emission regulations must have a warning label that indicates potentially dangerous levels of ozone emission. The California Air Resources Board generated a list of potentially harmful air cleaners that emitted levels of ozone that exceeded the regulation.
The good news is that not all air purifiers are harmful. Californians wishing to provide clean and safe breathing air for their loved ones are not left without options. One of the most effective and affordable options for personal air purification is an air purifier with a medical grade HEPA air filter. These HEPA air purifiers are commonly used in hospitals. They are natural, safe and incredibly efficient. Medical grade HEPA air filters remove a minimum of 99.97% of all airborne particles greater than or equal to 0.3 microns in diameter. These HEPA air purifiers trap and prevent the recirculation of particulates and respiratory tract irritants back into the air that you breathe. HEPA filters remove such common air pollutants as dust, pet dander, mold spores, pollen, bacteria, dust mite airborne allergens, soot and even viruses.
An Quality HEPA air purifier helps provide natural relief for those who suffer from allergies or asthma or any other forms of respiratory distress. If you are in the market for an air purifier, make sure that you have all the facts. Get a HEPA air purifier. It will expertly remove air impurities and provide comfort and peace of mind to you and those you love.
