Are Air Purifiers Safe: Considering Safety When Using an Air Purifier

When considering whether or not to buy an air purifier, there are several different things you should be taking into consideration. Do you need HEPA filtration, carbon filtration or dual-filter functionality? How large should the capacity of a unit be to meet your needs? How much noise will a given unit produce? Are air purifiers safe to use in the home on a continuous basis?   This last question, though it may seem like an unusual one to someone who has owned and used an air purifier for several years, is actually one of the more common questions asked by people who are just beginning to learn about using air purifiers to improve their health. Because of this, we've decided to answer the question "Are air purifiers safe?" once and for all.  

  Air Purifier Safety Considerations

  So, what safety considerations are there when using an air purifier in your home, office or other small space? Like all electronic devices, air purifiers have to be plugged into your home's electrical system in order to function, which leads many new buyers to wonder whether or not they can be used 24/7 safely. The answer to this question is a definitive yes, as long as your house doesn't have underlying wiring issues that would prevent a modern appliance from being able to function properly.   Another of the air purifier safety concerns some new buyers have is ozone exposure. Some people have heard that air purifiers which feature ionization technology actively produce excess ozone in the process of creating negative ions in the air. This, however, is generally a misunderstanding based on the similarity of ionizer technologies to ozone generators. Believe it or not, there are ozone generation devices that have been marketed as "healthy," despite the fact that high levels of ozone can cause cellular damage in the upper respiratory system. Though ionizers work on similar physical principles to these ozone generators, they produce primarily ionized particles, rather than ozone molecules. It is true that even the best ionization systems will produce some tiny amount of ozone during the course of their normal operation, but the increase in ozone is negligible with ionizers. Ozone generators, conversely, produce non-negligibile increases in ozone levels.   Finally, there are people who wonder about where or not filterless air purifiers are safe. These purifiers use a thermal ceramic core to eliminate airborne bacteria, viruses, pollen and other impurities with heat. On the surface, this kind of system might seem like a fire hazard. However, these purifiers enclose that ceramic core in an outer shell that prevents direct contact between outside material and the heat-generating core, mitigating this concern.  

  So, Are Air Purifiers Safe?

  The final answer to the question "Are air purifiers safe?" is, in fact, an emphatic yes. Air purifier technology presents no dangers while functioning properly. If you still have questions about air purifier safety or how you can use an air purifer to improve your own health, feel free to contact us, and we'll be happy to answer any further questions you may have.

How Long Do Air Purifier Filters Last?

If you're looking for an air purifier or just trying to learn more about them, you've probably found yourself wondering, "How long do air purifier filters last?" Since almost all air purifiers require filters to remove contaminants from the air, the life span of these filters is critically important. Here are the basics of what you need to know about air purifier filter life.  

  How Do Different Filters Work and Wear Out?

  There are various different kinds of air purifier filters, each of which lasts for a different amount of time based on how it removes impurities from the air around you. A HEPA filter, for example, uses thin layers of a porous material to capture small particles in the air. The filter wears out as this material becomes too full to continue capturing more airborne particles.   Carbon filters, on the other hand, work on a similar but slightly different principle. Using chemically activated carbon, these filters capture gaseous impurities, like odors and VOCs, from the air. Like HEPA filters, however, these filters will eventually reach their maximum capacities and no longer be able to remove more gases from your household air.  

  So, How Long Do Air Purifier Filters Last?

  Air purifier filter life will depend upon a variety of factors, including filter type, size and usage. Many larger HEPA filters, like those in the Amaircare 3000, can last up to 5 years under the right conditions, though 2-3 is more realistic in spaces with larger amounts of particulate matter in the air. For carbon filters, the average lifespan is generally 3-5 years. Be aware, however, that not all units have the same specifications. There are air purifiers that will need more frequent filters changes, so be sure to carefully read the manual for your air purifier to determine its filter life.  

  When to Replace Filters

  There are several different ways to know it's time to replace an air purifier filter. Some units, like the Field Controls TRIO, come equipped with an indicator light that will let you know when it's time for your filter to be changed. If your unit doesn't have this feature, you can simply keep track of the time since your last change and replace the filter after the recommended interval.   Another option, if you don't want to keep track of multi-year filter change intervals, is to use the US Air Purifiers filter change calendar tool. Simply enter your air purifier's information and your email, and you'll receive an automated email alert when it's time for you to change your filter.   Air purifier filter life can vary, which is why it's crucial to know how often you need to change the filter in your unit. Still have questions about air purifiers, filters, or how long the filters in your air purifier last? Feel free to contact us, and we'll be happy to answer your questions and help you get the replacement filter you need.

Five Ways to Prevent Allergies

Spring allergies can make the onset of warm weather unpleasant at best and unbearable at worst. Each year, many of us must choose between dealing with allergy symptoms or feeling groggy for days on end because of over-the-counter allergy medicines. There are, however, a few neat tricks you can use to prevent allergies. If you want to treat your allergies naturally, here are five hacks you need to know.  

  Get Plenty of Vitamin C

  Though most people don't realize it, everyday vitamin C is a natural antihistamine. By making sure you're getting plenty of it, you can lessen the severity of your allergy symptoms and make them less frequent. If necessary, take a daily vitamin supplement to ensure you are getting all the vitamin C you need until allergy season is over.  

  Keep an Eye on Pollen Levels

  If you want to keep yourself from having an allergic reaction, it's important to expose yourself to pollen as little as possible. Most local weather stations will publish pollen level indexes during the height of allergy season, so be sure to keep an eye on those. If the allergy index on a given day is very high, consider limiting the amount of time you spend outside as much as possible.  

  Don't Open Your Windows

  To prevent allergies from becoming a constant problem, you need to make sure that pollen isn't building up inside your home. During the spring months, it can be tempting to throw your windows open to get some fresh air, but doing so will let pollen work its way into your home. Keep your windows closed as much as possible. If you really do need to open them, do it at night, when pollen levels are typically at their lowest.  

  Use an Air Purifier to Prevent Allergies

  If you have severe allergies or just want to make sure you're protected against your allergies in the best possible way, consider getting a residential air purifier. A model with HEPA filtration will easily remove pollen from the air in your house. Some of our top recommended models include:     If you want to prevent allergies and make your home healthier at the same time, an air purifier is definitely the way to go.  

  Hire a Lawn Care Service

  One of the times during which you are most exposed to pollen is when you are mowing or caring for your lawn. Not only are you outside, usually in the middle of the day, but you are also kicking up pollen that has already settled on your grass. If you suffer from allergies and have the means to do it, consider hiring a lawn care company to take care of your yard for you. Though it will cost a bit, you'll find you are much less likely to have severe allergic reactions if you don't have to care for your own lawn during allergy seasons.   These are just a few of the ways you can naturally prevent allergies. If you need more information about using an air purifier to improve your health, feel free to contact US Air Purifiers, and we'll guide help you pick out the best model for your home.  

The Three Best UV Air Purifiers

If you've been shopping for an air purifier, you've probably become familiar with the basic HEPA and carbon filtration systems that the vast majority of air purifiers rely upon. However, there's another type of air purification that is less common, but incredibly effective: UV, or ultraviolet light. Not all air purifiers come equipped with a UV system, but the ones that do offer an added layer of protection against some of the most harmful contaminants in your home air. Here's the official US Air Purifiers list of the three best UV air purifiers.  

  First, Why Would You Want a UV Air Purifier?

  Before we get into the units, let's talk about why you'd want to use an air purifier equipped with a UV lamp. As you probably know, most air purifiers work by physically filtering unwanted pollutants out of the air. However, physical filtration has its limits. Some microorganisms, especially viruses, are too small for standard filters to catch. UV light, on the other hand, can kill these organisms regardless of their size. UV air purifiers work by exposing organisms to UV light, which can penetrate their outer coatings because of its high-energy nature and damage their DNA. The result is a system which can kill viruses and support standard filtration of bacteria, mold and other organic contaminants.  

  Some of the Best UV Air Purifiers

 

  Field Controls TRIO

  One of our favorite units here at US Air Purifiers is the Field Controls TRIO, a medical-grade air purifier that is small and portable enough to be used in home environments. One of this unit's multi-stage filtration systems is a high-output UV germicidal lamp, which is part of what qualifies it as a hospital-grade unit. The TRIO can remove an incredible 99.9 percent of contaminants from the air during its first pass and will cover areas of up to 1,000 square feet.  

  Airpura UV600

  Another of the best UV air purifiers is the Airpura UV600, a unit that has been specifically designed for use in spaces where viruses, germs and mold spores are key concerns. The UV600 offers both HEPA and activated carbon filtration, in addition to its germicidal lamp. This unit can cover areas of up to 2,000 square feet, making it ideal for larger homes or offices.  

  AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5

  The last unit on our list of the three best UV air purifiers is the AirMedic Pro 5, AllerAir's top-of-the-line model. This air purifier is equipped with medical-grade HEPA filtration, an impressive 18 pound bed of carbon and a UV lamp that rounds out its remarkable ability to remove organic contaminants of all kinds. The AirMedic Pro 5 will cover up to 1,500 square feet and features all-steel construction.   If you're still not sure whether or not a UV air purifier is right for you, you can ask us directly! Simply contact us, and we'll guide you through the process of picking out the best air purifier for your home.

Do Air Purifiers Remove Dust?

One of the most common questions the team at US Air Purifiers hears is whether or not a home in which an air purifier is used will still have to be dusted. While air purifiers that use HEPA filters do filter dust, it's important to understand the degree to which they will be effective in removing dust for cleaning purposes.  

  Do Air Purifiers Remove Dust?

  To put things simply, yes, most air purifiers do remove dust from your home. HEPA purifiers will capture dust that is floating in the air, while probiotic air purifiers will reduce the amount of dust by consuming the resources that dust mites also use. There is, however, one class of air purifiers that will not effectively remove dust: carbon filter units. These purifiers are designed to capture odors and gases, rather than particulate matter. While many carbon air purifiers do have prefilters that will capture at least some dust, they are far from being as effective as HEPA units.  

  Do Air Purifiers Eliminate Dust?

  A better question to ask with regards to cleaning is whether or not air purifiers completely eliminate dust, to which the answer is a definite "no." Even using a good residential air purifier, you'll still need to dust and clean as you usually would. In large part, this is because air purifiers can only catch contaminants that are airborne. Dust, however, can settle on surfaces, making it difficult for a filter-based purifier to catch unless it is somehow dislodged into the air. Probiotic air purifiers can reduce the dust that settles on household object, but they won't be able to eliminate it altogether.   With that being said, what's important about using an air purifier isn't whether or not you will still have to dust, but the immense health benefits you and your family can receive from breathing clean, healthy air. Removing dust from the air will help you breathe more easily, reduce your chances of allergic reaction and asthma attacks and make your home a healthier environment.   Have questions about using a residential air purifier to make the air in your home cleaner?
