I Stole This Post

I stole this blog post from my wife’s blog, angelayurikosmith.com, but in all fairness, I did write it originally. Now that I have my own site, I need some content. Hence the snag. You can read the original post here. She won’t mind. She’s been after me to have my own site for years.

What she said: We try to drink bottled water and eat organic but there isn’t much to do about our air quality… besides not smoking. This is what I used to think before my husband started working for Rabbit Air, creator of some of the best air purifiers on the market. Honestly, clean air is not something I’ve ever thought much about… until I learned these purifiers are also effective against viruses. Why do I suddenly care about viruses in 2020?

I wonder…

How I handled dog smells before the MinusA2.

He was telling me all about some of the Rabbit Air models the other day and he suggested I do a blog post about how effective and important they are. That’s a good idea, I thought. And then I had a better idea. “You’re a writer. You’ve written a book! You should write the blog post.” He agreed.

I’m happy to introduce Ryan Aussie Smith, my husband and fellow writer, to share his knowledge. A little about him for those that don’t know… a native Australian, he co-publishes Space and Time with me and produces all the audio publications for the magazine. He is currently producing all my audio books as well. 

He just published his first book, Shadow’s Lamentwhich you can find on Amazon here. He is a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and he is my best friend. He complains about having too many dogs in the house, but since our house doesn’t smell like it has too many dogs (thanks to the MinusA2 air purifier) he complains much less. Marriage is all about compromises, after all.

And now, here’s everything you should know about air purifiers from Ryan Aussie Smith… Want to know about Rabbit Air purifiers? You can find them online here.

What I said: As I read this introduction, I want to mention that we still  have too many dogs but Angela is correct that you can’t tell unless you actually see and hear them. This is largely because of the MinusA2 SPA-780N we have centrally located downstairs and a BioGS 2.0 SPA-625A located upstairs. The units have many filters but much of the heavy lifting is performed by the HEPA filter and charcoal based activated carbon filter. The HEPA filter is a TRUE HEPA filter, able to filter out 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size. The activated carbon filter can reduce all kinds of obnoxious odors from pets and cigarettes and less obnoxious odors from, say, cigars and bourbon.

Now note where I say “centrally located.” This is a crucial part of helping an air purifier do its best for you. An air purifier needs a great location to actively draw in air to purify it. A common mistake is locating a purifier in locations with poor air circulation. If your air purifier can’t pull in ample air, it won’t be able to give you back ample purified air.

Up until the pandemic, the biggest reason people wanted air purifiers was for odor and allergen removal but 2020 has made us all suddenly aware of viruses. Some of the biggest customers at Rabbit Air are schools, dentists and homes for the elderly specifically as our units filter out 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size. This is important to all of us this year. I’m much happier to know any viruses floating around in my house will spend most of their life caught in a HEPA filter.

This isn’t the only reason to have a quality air purifier with TRUE HEPA filtration (which Rabbit Air purifiers are). Unless you are an allergy sufferer, you probably don’t think about the triggers floating around you. But for many, ignoring pet dander and pollen is not an option. Hay fever affects between 10 and 30 percent of all adults in the U.S. and as many as 40 percent of children, according to Healthline.com. They estimate as many as 60 million adults in the U.S. suffer from hay fever, and that number is increasing.

This is one reason Rabbit Air purifiers are in such high demand. Impurities are all around us—wildfires, pollution, pets, pollen, smoking—all these particles affect us when we breathe them in. I can’t control air pollution, smoke output from fires or even germs. Unless I make my home air tight, irritants will find their way in. 

Now I can save the mask for shopping.

What I can control is how the air inside my home is processed. By running my two Rabbit Air purifiers on AUTO mode, I am assured 1,440 sq ft of my house is being purified at all times. Whether my family is sleeping or awake, Rabbit Air is on patrol. 

This is why I have such an admiration for the company I work for. This is a good product. Because of it, I know thousands of schools, hospitals and homes have an extra edge on protection right now. There’s a lot we take for granted, but suddenly safe air can’t be one of them. Having my Rabbit Air purifiers is one way I know my family is protected.

And I don’t have to complain (as much) about dogs.

Congratulations! It’s about time you got a space up. Looks good so far. I can’t wait to see where it goes.
