Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) July 17, 2013
FiltersFast.com, the leading online retailer of air filters and water filters, is designating Wednesday July 17, 2013 as Asthma Capitals and Air Quality Awareness Day. In observation of the recent Asthma Capitals 2013 report from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, FiltersFast.com offers cost-effective and energy efficient solutions to help sufferers of this chronic respiratory disease to improve indoor air quality.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), 22 million people in the U.S. suffer from asthma, a chronic respiratory disease that continues to be a daily burden no matter where they live. AAFA’s new list of the 2013 Asthma Capitals report looks at environmental risk factors, asthma prevalence, and patient medical utilization in the 100 largest cities to find the “most challenging places to live with asthma.”
To create the rankings, AAFA assesses the 100 largest U.S. cities based on ozone days, air pollution, pollen counts, poverty rates, public smoking laws, and more to create a profile of each city illustrating how difficult it is for people living with asthma.
To help customers who suffer from asthma and allergies, FiltersFast.com offers solutions for improving indoor air quality that can harm overall health caused by respiratory stress. The company offers a wide variety of air filters based on MERV ratings and Microparticle Performance Ratings (MPR) to help reduce the number of annual hospital visits due to common triggers of asthma attacks. According to Alex Hertzog, Filtration Specialist for FiltersFast.com, “Generally speaking, the higher the MERV rating is, the more efficient the air filter will be. Air filters will help to reduce the airborne particles that can trigger an asthma attack, thereby improving the indoor air quality.”
By providing efficient air filters to its customers, the company aims to bring awareness to the cost-effective solutions designed to fight against asthma.
