Everything you need to know about Air Purifiers

By The Air Purifier

Your IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) is probably more important today because of current events (Covid) than any time in the past. Airborne Allergens like Viruses, Bacteria & Mold can cause serious health problems to you and your family.

What can an Air Purifier do for Me?

They can filter out dangerous allergens as small as .03 microns including large particles like:

  • Dust Mites (Feces)
  • Bacteria & Viruses
  • Mold Spores
  • Pet Dander
  • Pollen & Ragweed
  • Smoke (Cigarettes & Fires)
  • VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) and Gaseous pollutants

How do different types of Air Purifiers Work?

It will depend on the type of air purifier and which technologies they use. Some air cleaners use a fan and trap very small particles in their mechanical filters (HEPA), others don’t use filters but will neutralize particles with an electrical charge in the air (Ionic) so they will fall to the ground, and some can even destroy pathogens at their core, so they become harmless to people and pets (UVGI).

Most purifiers will have a Charcoal Filter to absorb gaseous contaminants and odors (Gas Phase). Click here to read more about different types of home air filters.



Note: Avoid Health Issues if your allergy is Detected & Treated.


Are Air Purifiers good for your Health?

If you suffer from Allergies and Asthma, they can filter out those allergens which can trigger an attack. Allergens in your home can lead to:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing & Dry mouth
  • Watery, itchy, and burning eyes
  • Plugged and runny nose (postnasal drip)
  • Sore and Scratchy Throat
  • Plugged and Itchy Ears
  • Headaches, Dizziness & Fatigue
  • Skin irritations and rashes
  • Respiratory and Sinus Infections

Do you need an Air Purifier?

Again, if you are suffering from Respiratory health issues explained above, they would probably be a good idea. Most newer homes have furnaces and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that can continuous clean the air practically 24hrs a day.

But if you are still suffering from health problems like allergies and asthma than an air purifier could be the solution to your problem because they can remove a lot more allergens from the air than your HVAC system.

If your home suffers from low humidity you can also use a Air Purifier Humidifier that will put moisture in the air and also clean your indoor air.



Using an Air Purifier Properly

Air purifiers make for excellent additions to any home or office, regardless of whether you suffer from allergies. In recent years air purifiers have gotten smaller in size and price, making them practical purchases for just about anyone.

Whether you are trying to fight troublesome asthma or allergies or just want peace of mind knowing the air around you is clean and pure, a small air purifier can provide great benefits.

There are some things to consider when using an air purifier to ensure you get the most benefits out of it. Read Article >>

Conclusion

There is enough evidence out there that Air Purifiers do work and can contribute to a healthy body. If Hospitals, Schools, and Doctor Offices use them, they must work. Plus, they are relatively inexpensive to run and are worth the cost if you are suffering from allergies & respiratory health problems.
