I have noticed a huge improvement in my breathing since running the AeroCure One.
I'm allergic to dogs. And cats. And mice. And all other little furry creatures who run around in the walls. And mold, which is another kind of furry creature. If you're like me and you struggle with asthma and allergies, then you -- like me -- are on the constant look out for something that can help.
I was given the opportunity to try the AeroCure One air purifier. I consider myself something of an expert in air purifiers, having tested more than a dozen in both of my homes, which are filled with irritating allergens. The verdict: no more runny nose!
The AeroCure One is different from other air purifiers in a variety of ways. First, its appearance. Imagine that a robot had a baby with a Volvo. It's not sleek and it's not trying to fit in with your decor, but it more than makes up for its looks with function. I actually like the way it looks. I'm a sucker for shiny objects. I call mine Air2D2.
The second difference is noise. There isn't any. This thing is virtually silent in comparison to other air purifiers, which is astonishing considering that it can treat 800 square feet of air in seconds. When I asked about why it's so quiet, AeroCure told me that it's because of the surface area of the air outlet. It's a great feature.
The third major difference is user interface. There's an on/off switch. That's it. Other air purifiers I own have a learning curve, and I still don't know how to use all of the features on most of them. But this one is dummy-proof. Turn on. Turn off. It couldn't be easier.
There's a digital "countdown" feature near the switch that will tell you when it's time to change the filter. I asked what happens if you don't change it right away, and AeroCure One said that the HEPA part of the filter is what needs changing, but the UV lights (that kill all the nasties that you breathe) will still work fine even when the unit indicates that it's time for a filter change.
The fourth difference is the addition of UV lights along with a medical grade HEPA filter and prefilter. I probably should have started with this feature, since it's what makes this unit so special. Air travels though the prefilter and then past the UV lights, which breaks down the DNA in living contaminants, such as mold, bacteria, and viruses -- the stuff that can make you sick. Finally, the air goes through the HEPA filter so that you don't breathe the dead junk that the filter killed.
I have noticed a huge improvement in my breathing since running the AeroCure One. Not only do I have a dog and foster dogs, which cast off dander and bring in all kinds of contaminants from the outdoors, I have a mold issue in my Florida place. The mold is relentless and impossible to eradicate. Since running this unit, I no longer have that moldy, musty smell in my place. That must mean that I'm no longer breathing the mold spores either. It's great.

The ultraviolet light of the reactor damages the DNA of microorganisms, killing them. This technology was originally developed for hospitals by a physician who was concerned about airborne antibiotic-resistant organisms. This system has been independently tested by the CDC-affiliated Research Triangle Institute and has been proven to eliminate virtually all airborne viruses, bacteria and spores in controlled laboratory conditions.
Key features include: 5 YEAR Guarantee, two-stage pre-filter with odor-controlling carbon layer, effective in rooms up to 800 square feet, true HEPA 99.97 main filter, heavy-duty all-steel construction, made in the USA, quiet brushless AC motor/blower, simple one switch/one speed control. The UV system is carefully engineered to run at one optimal speed, which maximizes microbial elimination. Let's clear the air with AeroCure One! Learn more at www.aerocure.com.
