Do you or one of your family members suffer from allergies or have asthma? Do you feel like your Dallas, Texas, home needs cleaner air? An air purifier may be the answer to your problems. Read on to learn more about how effective air purifiers are.
Benefits of an Air Purifier
Did you know that, on average, the air in your home is more polluted than outdoor air? There are many benefits of purchasing an air purifier such as the following:
- They are helpful in reducing triggers for asthma attacks.
- They can reduce allergens, such as pet dander and dust.
- They protect older adults and young children from respiratory illnesses.
- Clean air improves your mood levels.
Which Air Purifier Should You Buy?
Before deciding which air purifier to buy, you need to decide what you want the air purifier to do. If you are looking for relief from allergies or asthma, then an air purifier with a High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter is a good option. A HEPA filter can remove 99.97 percent of particles that are .3 microns or larger.
The filter in this air purifier traps all particles so they don’t have a chance to get inside your lungs as you breathe. This is great news for allergy or asthma sufferers wanting long-term relief. The fewer bad particles you inhale, the healthier you’ll stay.
An ionic air purifier cleans the air by emitting charged particles into the air, which latch onto airborne contaminants, and then fall to the floor or onto an electrostatic collection plate. An iconic air purifier removes particles as small as .01 microns from the air, three times smaller than a HEPA air purifier.
The upside to this type of air purifier is that it is usually cheaper to buy. However, the downside is that the charged particles emitted can affect asthmatics, and the fallen particles on the floor can reenter the air if stirred up.
