Do air purifiers really work? Are air purifiers worth your time or investment?
If you’re asking those types of questions, then this video is for you.
In a few short minutes, you’ll learn just how effective air purifiers are at cleaning the air as well as discover who may actually benefit from these devices.
So, keep watching.
The promise of an air purifier is an enticing one: a machine that can clean the air inside your home by removing impurities like dust, smoke, allergens, bacteria and even odors.
But do these machines really work? That’s the question we’re covering today.
The truth is, not all air purifiers can eliminate every type of pollutant in your home. Some obviously do a better job than others, but their effectiveness really comes down to the type of air filters and technology the machine uses.
You see, each air purifier filter is designed to remove either particles or gases, but not both.
If the air purifier uses a HEPA filter then it can reduce up to 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns in size. This includes dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke and particulate matter that comes from outdoor air pollution.
If the air purifier uses an Activated Carbon filter then it can remove airborne chemicals, volatile organic compounds and molecules that make up unpleasant odors.
Now, if you want to get rid of bacteria and viruses in your home then you’ll need an air purifier that uses something more powerful than a filter, called an ultraviolet light.
An ultraviolet light is the only thing that can destroy microorganisms at their core. Neither HEPA filters or Activated Carbon filters can do this.
So, do these devices work? The answer is clearly yes, but you’re now probably wondering “Are they worth the expense?”
The answer to that question is also yes, as long as any of the following statements are true for you.
- You want to reduce your exposure to air pollution
- You have allergies or asthma and want to reduce airborne triggers
- You want a cleaner home that accumulates less dust
- You have pets and want to get rid of pet dander and odors
- You want to avoid contact with bacteria and viruses
- You want to remove secondhand smoke and its odor
