PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: air purifiers

Recent concerns regarding various types of pollutions and degrading air quality have made everyone more interested in products and devices that filter and clean up air to live in a more safely breathable environment. With many of us spending more time indoors than ever before, it is crucial that we can maintain a healthy environment free from harmful particles and pollutants.

So, how do air purifiers fix this problem?

In simple terms air purifiers sanitise the air, similar to how you wash your hands or brush your teeth – an air purifier will clean harmful substances from the air around you.

Air purifiers are equipped with a fan and one or more filters. A simple setup indeed but it is rather effective. The fan within the device pulls in outside air which is then passed through the filters – capturing any pollutants and unwanted particles and neutralizing their negative impact. Then the fresh, clean air flows back into the environment for you to breathe safely and healthily.[2]

Which filters should my air purifier use?

Many types of filters have a variety of different uses. A HEPA filter is arguably the most important – standing for “high-efficiency particulate air”.

It is extremely effective at trapping tiny particles that would usually pass through other filters. HEPA filters are known to trap at least 99.5% of smoke, mould, dust, and other harmful particles. This is the same type of filter you would be able to find in a high-quality vacuum cleaner.

Other filter types such as carbon, charcoal & ozone are great at capturing and cleansing odours but are less effective when it comes to protecting against or purifying generally polluted air. Ionic/ionisation filters can also remove small particles such as dust/smoke but have the downside of producing ozone meanwhile UV sterilising filters can kill viruses and bacteria, but the effectiveness rate is not extremely high.

For a basic household, an air purifier with a HEPA filter should suit your needs and will help you to improve the air quality of your home to a high standard.[2]

Are air purifiers effective?

While air purifiers cannot guarantee that 100% of all pollutants will be removed from the air, there will be a significant positive difference in the quality of the air within the realm of your air purifier.[3]

Using an air purifier alongside ventilation systems and ceiling fans is a fantastic way to maintain a consistent healthy environment inside your home or office.
