Air Purifiers: How They Work And 10 Benefits Of Having One
Posted on: March 16, 2015 | by: Will Housh
Indoor air can be just as polluted — or more polluted — than outdoor air. Indoor air purifiers remove the pollutants from the air you breathe in your home, making it a healthier environment for you and your family.
How Indoor Air Purifiers Work
Air purifiers use a system of internal fans to pull the air in your home through a series of filters that remove harmful airborne particles like dust, pollen and bacteria. The air purifier then circulate the purified air back into the room. This process repeats itself several times an hour, keeping your environment healthy.
Why Do You Need An Air Purifier?
If you don’t think an air purifier is the right choice for your home; here are 10 reasons to reconsider:
Air purifiers ensure your family is breathing clean air.
The EPA estimates that indoor air is two to five times dirtier than outdoor air — and sometimes up to 100 times dirtier. A good air purifier keeps you healthy.
Air purifiers remove unpleasant odors.
You love to cook, but your weekly fish fry makes the house smell like, well, fish. Air purifiers don’t only clean the air, they also help get rid of unpleasant and burnt food odors (not that you ever burn your food!).
Air purifiers trap airborne allergens released by pets.
You may love your pet, but your furry friend releases pet dander, fur and other airborne allergens into the air in your home — not to mention the smells! Air purifiers help combat these allergens by trapping them before they settle into your home.
Air purifiers help neutralize smoke.
Smoke stinks. Whether it’s a family member who smokes or your love for a roaring fireplace making your home smell dingy, an air purifier can help trap smoke before it ends up in your upholstery.
Air purifiers trap dust.
There will always be dust. No matter what you do to keep your home clean, dust accumulates. An air purifier helps trap dust before it has the chance to settle, reducing build-up and leaving you with less to clean.
Air purifiers remove up to 99 percent of airborne bacteria.
Small airborne particles like pollen, mold spores and other bacteria float around in the air, causing your family to get sick. By cycling the air in the room repeatedly through internal filters, an air purifier helps remove up to 99 percent of these airborne pollutants.
Air purifiers combat seasonal allergens.
Seasonal allergies are a problem for many people. Air purifiers help keep the allergens that make breathing uncomfortable out of your home.
Air purifiers stop sickness and germs from spreading.
Worried about catching your children’s flu? Your spouse’s cold? True HEPA air purifiers with UV bulbs capture and neutralize up to 99.97 percent of the airborne germs that you want to avoid.
Air purifiers keep your lungs healthy.
Consistent exposure to dust, pollen, dander, and other airborne particles can cause long-term breathing and health issues for you and your family. Using an air purifier in your home gives you the confidence that your lungs will be healthy for years to come.
Air purifiers fit everywhere.
They come in a variety of sizes and have a variety of features that will keep the air healthy in any room of the house.
With features like oscillating fans, multiple speeds, and energy saving settings, air purifiers are the perfect low-cost option for keeping your family healthy.
