How Does an Air Purifier Work?
Poor indoor air quality can lead to a variety of problems, from an increase in allergies to the circulation of mold or dander. An air filter can improve the air quality in your home or office and help everyone breathe a little easier.
How do Air Filters Work?
An air filter works by sucking in the room air with a fan. Once collected, the air is forced through a series of filters that are designed to remove contaminants. Depending on the model you choose, the filter can remove dust mites, dander, pollen and other troublesome contaminants.
The clean air is then circulated back into the room via another fan. Air filters are designed to be both efficient and quiet, so they can be used in classrooms, boardrooms and bedrooms to improve air quality without sacrificing comfort.
Air Filter Options
Choose a filter based on the allergens present in your home or workspace. If you have plenty of pets, a filter that will remove dander is a must. Some filters are designed with ionizers designed to filter out even the smallest particles. Choosing the correct air filer for your known contaminants will help you quickly improve your air quality.
Benefits of Using an Air Filter:
Improved air quality eliminates some common health concerns and results in purer, cleaner air. The EPA says that Americans spend too much time indoors — about 90% of each day is spend inside a home, office or school.
The resulting health problems can be minor annoyances or major concerns; cleaning the air with a filter can help alleviate the problems associated with poor indoor air quality.
While pollen, dander and other allergens are a concern, viruses, bacterium and some spores can also be transmitted through the air, leading to an increased risk of illness in buildings with poor air quality.
