The ProsLeaving your unit on will help to ensure that particulates and gases are being removed from your home air, even if you aren't there. It will also make sure that your home air is as clean as possible when you return from work, preventing you from having to wait while your air purifier cycles the air through.
The ConsThe only downside of leaving your air purifier on while you're away from home is that it can use up a bit of extra electricity. However, as we addressed in our article on air purifier energy costs, the actual expense of running an air purifier isn't that high. So, while you could save a bit of money by turning your unit off when you're leaving for work in the morning, it certainly won't be much.
Our VerdictUltimately, we think it's better to leave your air purifier running at all times to maintain the highest possible home air quality. While you'll spend a little extra money on electricity, the results are definitely worth the investment. Leaving your purifier on at all times also saves you the trouble of having to remember to turn it back on every time you come home.

Your Air Purifier Eats Up a Lot of ElectricityIf the unit you're using is adding a substantial amount to your electrical bill, it's a good sign that it's time for a replacement. Older air purifiers were major energy consuming appliances. Today, however, the machines have become more efficient and less expensive to operate. For the best energy efficient upgrades, check out our complete lineup of Energy Star certified air purifiers.
You Start Hearing Unusual Humming or BuzzingIf your air purifier begins making unusual and loud noises, it generally means there's a problem. While newer models will likely still be under warranty, a unit that has been in your home for 10 years will have long since passed its warranty expiration. In this situation, it's generally better to replace your air purifier, as repairs are costly and difficult to arrange.
The Purifier Isn't Cleaning the Air Properly AnymoreOf course, the biggest sign that it's time to get a new air purifier is that your old unit simply isn't doing a good enough job of cleaning the air anymore. While you should make sure that the problem is with the machine itself and not with the filter, air purifiers are not immune to wearing out. You can check how well your unit is cleaning the air by measuring your indoor air quality with a Foobot meter, which will allow you to get quantifiable data on the contaminants in your home air. If you're in the market for a new air purifier, consider one of our excellent residential units. If you aren't sure what you need, feel free to send us your questions, and we'll be happy to provide answers and personalized product recommendations based on your needs.
FormaldehydeUsed to treat construction and insulation materials, formaldehyde is also a dangerous chemical gas that can cause upper respiratory irritation and exacerbate chronic respiratory conditions. Even though formaldehyde is usually only present in low levels in most homes, it may be enough to affect those with severe sensitivities to chemicals and gases.
MoldEven if your home is pristine and clean, you may still have hidden patches of mold lurking in places you'd never imagine. Mold can grow in any damp, dark environment, making it difficult to avoid. Meanwhile, mold releases spores that can trigger allergic reactions, and some types even produce harmful gases and odors.
Dry AirEven if there aren't any contaminants in your air, you could still be suffering from the effects of low humidity. Dry air can cause irritation of the mouth, throat and respiratory system, as well as headaches and dry skin. Even the cleanest air can be too dry and cause problems for people breathing it.
How to Check Your Indoor Air QualityIf you aren't sure what the status of your indoor air quality is, consider using a Foobot air quality meter. This meter measures particles, VOCs, temperature, humidity and other air quality characteristics to paint a complete picture of how healthy the air in your home is. Have questions about air quality or how to use a person indoor air quality meter to improve the air you're breathing? We're here to help!

While it has always been known that exposure to mold is far from healthy, new research continues to demonstrate just how hazardous mold in homes with young children can be. One of the most concerning findings of recent years is the link between mold exposure in infancy and the development of asthma in later childhood. Infants who are exposed to high levels of mold by the age of 8 months are more likely to develop asthma by the time they are 7 than other children. Although the mechanism by which mold contributes to asthma development remains unknown, the evidence for such a connection is quite strong. Even without this risk, having certain varieties of mold in your house could be dangerous. Mycotoxins produced by mold have been linked to everything from acute toxic poisoning to higher long-term risks of certain cancers. As a result, it's important for all homes, especially those with young children, to take steps to prevent mold growth.. What Makes a Home Turn Toxic? Not all mold is hazardous to one’s health, nor do all homes wind up playing host to mycotic cultures. But once mold starts growing in your home, it can quickly affect your health. Anywhere there is humidity and insufficient ventilation, mold spores can take over. Since mold can grow on any organic material provided sufficient moisture, even materials in areas which are not readily visible, like roof materials above ceiling tiles and flooring below carpet. The insulation in air ducts can also be mildewed and rotting, resulting in increased respiratory and other health complaints. Combating Mold in Your Home by Minimizing Excessive Moisture The key to avoiding mold in your home (or place of work) is keeping humidity low. Making sure there is sufficient ventilation in all rooms can be a tricky task; even seemingly harmless houseplants can encourage the growth of mold. But before you throw out your favorite decorative plants, be aware that there are a number of ways to combat excessive moisture indoors. If certain areas lack sufficient windows, you may want to supplement the airflow with a dehumidifier or fan to minimize excessive humidity in your home. For rooms that will inevitably get damp, like bathrooms, it is advisable to avoid carpeting, which will be hard to dry out and so encourage the growth of mold. If mold is found in the home, it should be cleaned up with bleach as quickly as possible. Insofar as the presence of mold in a home has been positively linked with the development of childhood asthma, it is vital that mold not be allowed to grow unchecked in homes, schools, and workplaces. Although it is not necessarily proven that mold causes asthma and other health conditions, the strong correlation between the presence of mold spores and prevalence of respiratory distress, certainly implies that mold, at the very least, exacerbates symptoms. While there is nothing we can do to avoid our genetic fate, investing in fans or dehumidifiers and cleaning air ducts now may prevent serious health problems down the line. For mold protection, we recommend coverage from a high-quality HEPA air purifier such as the IQAir HealthPro, Amaircare 3000 or Austin Air HealthMate. Purifiers that feature a VOC canister can also help to control odors, making your home more livable while you are tackling an existing mold problem.
