Why do You Need an Air Purifier in Your Home?
Indoor air can be 10 times dirtier than outdoors, especially if the room does not have enough ventilation or windows to balance the air circulation. If you frequently sneeze all day if you were in the room, maybe it is a sign that you have an allergy to dirty air. Especially if you have furry pets like cats.
The presence of an air purifier in your room will greatly help to clean the air. There is no harm if you are investing in an air purifier for the sake of your health in the future. Air cleanliness in the room will determine the health of people who often spend their time in it.
Air Purification System for Home
There are several things which are the main cause of indoor air pollution, including:
- Pet dander that sticks to your clothes or cloths
- Pollen coming in from your window
- Smoke from a chimney or cigarette
- Dust blown by the wind from streets
A room is an enclosed area, with a limited access to in and out, so small particles like: dust, or pollen may trapped inside forever. Since all these particles are so small (size in microns), then they are very difficult to be cleaned in a normal way. An air purification systems generally designed to filter these small particles in the air (dust, smoke, pollen, and pet dander from your room), so you can have fresh air to breathe.
Although the machine works with advanced technology, but it is actually designed to work in a small area, like a bedroom. It is quite reasonable, because you will only feel the difference in the room where you often spend your time. If you often spend your time in your workspace, then you can put an air purifier in it.
What do Air Purifiers do?
1. Killing bacteria and viruses
An air purifier is generally equipped with a UV lamp to kill micro living organisms, such as viruses and bacteria that are in your room. If you have a pet in your room, then an air purifier will help maintain the air cleanliness in your room, by killing bacteria and viruses that may coming from your pet.
2. Neutralize odors
Carbon and charcoal filters in an air purifier are designed to help eliminate odors in your room, because gas particles are too small to be caught by a normal filter.
3. Capture small particles from the air
HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are designed to catch small particles up to 0.3 micron (smoke particles). So the allergen particles like pollen, dust, spores will disappear from your room.
|Smoke||0.3 – 0.04 microns|
|Mold||2- 20 microns|
|Fungi||0.5 – 5 microns|
|Bacteria||0.3 – 3 microns|
|Plant spores||10 – 70 microns|
|Pollen||10 – 100 microns|
|Dust Mite Allergen||10 – 40 microns|
|Pet Allergen||0.3 – 100 microns|
|*a micron = 0.00004 inches|
