HiTech Air Solutions Indoor Reactors

I found this product from HiTech Air Solutions, and I really need to share.

If you are looking for a Hi Tech air solution to get rid of pollutants in your home or office, look no further than the HiTech Air Solutions indoor reactor.

With three models plus a custom option, the Hi-Tech Air Solutions reactor will eradicate all of the air borne toxins that are flying through the air.

There are many reasons why you may have poor air quality in your home. Poor air quality can contribute to asthma, nasal congestion, nausea, fatigue and headaches. People who already suffer from infections are at greater risk.

There are an estimated 40 million people in the United States who are affected by allergies. The prevalence of pediatric asthma has increased by 72%, making asthma the sixth ranking chronic illness in the nation, and the leading serious chronic sickness for children.

What other pollutants can cause respiratory issues? Molds, pollen, and even animal dander can cause allergic symptoms. This can cause many undesirable consequences, such as, missing work, school or important life events.

The Hi-Tech Air Solutions air reactor will eliminate the causes for these respiratory issues. There are three models to choose from based on the size you need.

The smallest unit, model 101 is the best for use in a 1600 sq. foot or less space. The model 120 is designed for residential and commercial use for a space up to 2000 sq. feet. If you are looking for something larger, the model 110 will suit spaces up to 5000 sq. feet. All three models are made of stainless steel/hospital grade and the two larger models are on wheels for easy movement.

A trip around the web will offer numerous testimonials for this product, demonstrating how well it performs under various climates and circumstances.

See some of the happy customers here:

If you suffer from any of these ailments, and feel you need cleaner air in your home or office, get your Hi Tech Air Solutions air reactor today!!
