MACEDONIA, Ohio, April 26 According to a recent report by USA Today, due to 2010's unusually cold winter temperatures, allergy sufferers are now poised to experience the worst pollen season in years, with pollen counts skyrocketing and sufferers hiding indoors to avoid exposure. Yet as allergens creep indoors, sufferers continue to cough, sneeze and seek relief. With the introduction of EZ Breathe, a new innovative home ventilation system designed to remove allergens and reduce indoor concentrations of pollen, allergy sufferers now have a medication-free solution.

The EZ Breathe System is a maintenance-free unit that helps protect homes from excess moisture, molds, toxins, allergens and poor air quality resulting in a cleaner, healthier living environment. It provides powerful ventilation, supporting both the EPA and the American Lung Associations' recommendations to use a ventilated system to reduce indoor air pollution.

The EZ Breathe system improves indoor air quality and eliminates conditions for allergens to grow. The system ventilates by drawing moist, stale, contaminated air out of the home, replenishes by replacing moist air with fresh dry air and regulates airflow to reach and maintain a desired level of humidity. A complete home air exchange occurs about six to 10 times each day. Filter- and cartridge-free, EZ Breathe does not require additional cost to maintain and covers up to 7000 square feet, operating at a mere $2-$4 per month!

Studies have indicated that home intervention, in the form of a ventilation system, is an effective, preventative approach to asthma and allergy symptoms, and is more cost effective than waiting for symptoms to arrive and then treating them accordingly. ( )

While pollen is a vital element for the fertilization of plants, its allergic effects wreak havoc on at least 20 percent of the nation's population, with 5 percent suffering so badly, they require the aid of a specialist, said Richard Lockey, director of the Division of Allergy and Immunology at the University of South Florida, a state reporting record pollen counts, due to oak and cypress tree populations.

Oral antihistamines are the most commonly prescribed allergy medication to address the adverse affects of pollen. However, these remedies can cause drowsiness. Moreover, drug manufacturers warn their patients to avoid activities that require alertness such as driving, operating machinery and performing physically dangerous tasks when taking antihistamines.

The EZ Breathe unit is a safe solution. It is quiet, unobtrusive and fits easily into any room in the house. With no buckets of water to empty or filters to change, it requires no on-going time or attention. With its energy efficient design, it uses the same energy as a 40w light bulb with no on-going investment. It is a truly revolutionary approach to home ventilation and eliminates allergens.
