What Does an Air Purifier Do?
Essentially, they suck in air and then pass that air through advanced filters, including HEPA filters. Pollutants like dust, pollen and bacteria are trapped in these filters and the air released by the purifier has been cleaned of those things.
The main draws of an air purifier are:
The most common indoor air pollutants include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are emitted by various household products and can lead to respiratory issues. Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, can infiltrate homes and pose serious health risks. Dust mites and pet dander are common allergens found in indoor environments. Tobacco smoke is a major indoor pollutant, causing various health problems. Additionally, mold spores can thrive in damp areas and trigger allergies and respiratory ailments. Adequate ventilation, air purifiers, and regular cleaning are essential for mitigating these indoor air pollutants and improving indoor air quality.
The frequency of air purifier filter replacement depends on things like the type of filter, the purifier's usage, and the indoor air quality. Generally, pre-filters or washable filters should be cleaned or replaced every 1 to 3 months, while HEPA filters, which capture finer particles, typically last 6 to 12 months. Carbon filters, effective against odors and chemicals, usually last around 3 to 6 months. However, heavily polluted environments or high usage may require more frequent replacements. It's essential to consult the manufacturer's recommendations and monitor filter conditions regularly to ensure optimal air purification efficiency.
