How Air Purifiers Work

Jul 11, 2008
For an individual suffering from allergies and/or asthma there is no machine more beneficial than an air purifier. Functions of air purifiers, however, vary as to settings and manufacturers. In order to get the best performance from air purifiers various processes are important in choosing one that will be most effective. Air purifiers differ in processing procedures for removing impurities from the air which is most important in maintaining clean and healthy surroundings.

The function of the air purifier is removing impurities from the air by trapping and filtering the air which results in the release of particle free air. The design of the air purifier is particularly important when it is applied to a large area. The purifiers offered by most manufacturers are most effective when applied to small and medium size rooms.

Electrically charged ions produced by electrical plates in the air purifier catch impurities in the air. They attach themselves to impurities in the air, removing them, and releasing pure, clean air. Air purifiers effectively eliminate indoor impurities responsible for many airborne diseases by eliminating pollen, bacteria, mold spores, pet dander, dust mite allergens and poisonous fumes from the indoor environment. Consequently, allergy and asthma sufferers as well as all family members, benefit greatly by acquiring a household air purifier. Air purifiers are vital to all health conscious people. They are particularly beneficial for children, pregnant women and infants by providing good air quality.

Air purifiers do not employ fans, hence they are quiet machines. Some specialized air purifiers, such as those used in environments which demand the very highest degree of purification (hospitals, for example), may utilize fans resulting in a noisier environment. Air purifiers are economical machines, most household purifiers consume less energy than a 50 watt light bulb.

There are no negative side effects to air purifiers. No poisonous chemicals or harmful particles are emitted from the machines. Also, they create no humidity or temperature change.

Air purifiers come in metallic or ceramic designs and do not require much space for installation. You can fit them in small spaces like bedrooms and kitchens.

Another advantage to owning an air purifier is their low maintenance requirements. Dusting them during household cleaning routines is all that is needed. The heat emitted by an air purifier eliminates viruses, bacteria, mold spores, etc and are absolutely safe for everyday use.

A special series of air purifiers is available for people who are more allergy prone and for people suffering from breathing problems. These purifiers are widely used in hospitals and in nursing homes.
