- Children are more likely than adults to be affected by polluted indoor
air. They breathe faster, inhale more air per unit of body weight,
and are closer to the ground where concentrations are higher.
- The elderly, asthmatics, and people with breathing problems, allergies,
and lung diseases are also likely to be more sensitive to pollutants.

Here's the Solution...
Electrostatic Air Filters
"Allergy Gold" is an inexpensive, permanent air cleaning system that replaces
your existing air filter. It is up to 93% efficient and removes pollen, dust and
airborne pollutants, providing relief for allergy and asthma sufferers. This filter
is washable, which means there'll be no on-going filter replacement costs. It is
energy-efficient since it requires no additional electricity. "Allergy Gold" is
made of rugged, quality materials and is built to last. It is not available from a retail store but must be purchased
from your Heating / Duct Cleaning contractor. Standard and special sizes
are available to fit any need.
Electronic Air Cleaners
Electronic Air Cleaners are designed to remove up to 95% of the particles in the
air - including aggravating pollen, dirt, dust, grease, tobacco and cooking smoke.
That's 10 to 20 times higher efficiency than throwaway furnace filters. This type
of filter features two screens or prefilters, lightweight cells that can be washed
in your dishwasher or laundry tub, power and test buttons, indicator lights, and an
air switch that will turn off power to the unit when no airflow is present. This
type of filter requires an initial installation, and occasionally makes a "ticking" noise when
larger particles of dust hit the collector cells. This is the most common type of
air cleaner in the Toronto Area.
Portable Hepa Air Cleaners
The Amaircare portable air filtration system will clean the air in a target area
such as a bedroom, family room or office. Using H.E.P.A. filtration they are 99.97%
efficient at removing particles from @ 0.3 microns in size. They feature powerful,
efficient motor/fans that run maintenance-free for years, variable speed operation and
are so quiet that you'll hardly even know that it's on!
Our best-selling unit is the "Roomaid" model which is so efficient, it would take
13 1/3 "Roomaids" to use the same amount of electricity as one regular 60 Watt light
bulb. These units come in a variety of sizes to accomodate any size room. Once you own one
of these filters, you'll be truly amazed to find out just how clean the air can actually be!
