Having a house full of allergy sufferers this time of year is generally not a pleasant experience. Historically Fall and Spring are the worst for my family. Both my husband and son suffer from seasonal allergies as well as asthma. While I can’t do anything for the outdoor allergens, I can do my part to keep the inside of our home allergy-free.
That means constant dusting, vacuuming, and cleaning to combat indoor allergens. I make sure to change out the filters in our heating system and anything else I can do to minimize the allergens in our home. For years, I’ve overlooked the air in our home, not realizing that I could make a change for the better there as well.
I was recently introduced to Intellipure and after learning more about the company and what they offer, I knew this was just what my family needed!
When our Intellipure Ultrafine 468 arrived, I couldn’t wait to set it up. The unit combats all three pollutant categories – micro-organisms, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and particles. When I read some of the facts about the unit and what it can do, I knew it would be beneficial to our family.
Some of my favorite features of the Intellipure Ultrafine 468:
- It captures 99% of airborne particles down to 0.007 microns in size. This includes ultrafine particles
- It’s fairly quiet when it’s running and after the first day no one noticed it was running in the background
- With the sleep mode option, the unit only uses 1 watt per hour when on low or sleep mode
- Removes airborne odors
Since we have a fairly open floor plan downstairs in between our living room and kitchen and that’s where we spend the bulk of our time, that’s where I placed the unit.
The unit is sleek and streamlined and blends in with my decor. In fact, most people don’t even realize it’s there. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), most of the world’s population breathes polluted air and more than half of the people in the U.S. live in countries that have unhealthy levels of air pollution, putting them at risk for adverse health effects like asthma attacks and many more serious conditions. Having an indoor air purifier like an Intellipure Ultrafine 468 combats those effects.
- Dilute the air when possible
- Remove the source of pollution
- Clean the air with a portable, high-end air purifier
Overall we’re extremely happy with the unit. While my husband and son still experienced their yearly allergy symptoms, I’ve definitely noticed their symptoms are not as bad as they have been in years past. I feel a sense of relief knowing I’m doing everything I can to help ease their symptoms and provide a clear air environment for my family.
Aside from replacing the filters, the unit is pretty maintenance-free.
- VOC pre-filter needs to be replaced every 6 months
- The main filter needs to be replaced every 12 months
- VOC post-filter needs to be replaced every 6 months
