Can You Use Air Purifiers and Humidifiers Together?

Many people have used either an air purifier or a humidifier at some point in their lives, but most people have never used them together. This has led consumers to wonder whether or not air purifiers and humidifiers can be used together. Today, we're here to answer that question and look at when you might want to use these two devices at the same time in your home.  

First Off, Can You Even Use Them Together?

  The answer to this question is an emphatic yes! Using air purifiers and humidifiers together is perfectly alright, and neither one will have an effect on the other. Air purifier filters are designed to work in wide humidity ranges, ensuring that the extra moisture in the air won't do any filter damage. At the same time, purifiers don't filter out moisture, meaning that your air filters won't be working against your humidifier by drying the air out.  

When Might You Want to Use an Air Purifier and a Humidifier?

  Of course, you may not always need an air purifier and a humidifier running at the same time. There are, however, time when both can be useful. One of the best examples is when winter sets in. Cold air tends to be dry to begin with, and furnaces can draw even more moisture out during the heating process. As a result, a humidifier may be needed to add moisture back into the air. At the same time, an air purifier will help to reduce the effects of winter air pollution.   The two devices can also both help during allergy seasons. Air purifiers can remove pollen from the air, while a humidifier may offer symptom relief by reducing nasal irritation caused by dry air. In this circumstance, the two can actually work together, rather than addressing separate problems independently.   This year, there's an even better reason to combine air purifiers and humidifiers. With COVID-19 still going around, it's important to do everything possible to reduce the risk of transmission in your home. Studies have shown that the HEPA filters used in most home air purifiers are capable of capturing particles as small as viruses. Meanwhile, advanced computer models recently suggested that humidifiers could help to slow COVID-19 transmission indoors.   As you can see, there are several reasons you may want to use air purifiers and humidifiers at the same time. While it may not be necessary at all times, there's no reason at all you can't do it at times when your home air needs some extra moisture.   Have more questions about how air purifiers or humidifiers can help improve your indoor air quality?

Giving Air Purifiers as Christmas Gifts in 2020

As hard as it is to believe, we're finally well and truly into the holiday season. Thanksgiving is already behind us, and Christmas is only a few weeks out. If you're still not sure what to get the special people on your list this year, don't worry, we've got you covered! An air purifier is one of the most useful and practical Christmas gifts you can possibly give in 2020. Here's what you need to know about gifting air purifiers and why they make the ideal gift choice this year.  

Why Should You Give an Air Purifier as a Christmas Gift in 2020?

  Though it has been an eventful year on all fronts, the biggest news item of 2020 by far has been the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since January, the SARS-CoV-2 virus has spread all around the globe, causing over 60 million confirmed COVID-19 cases. As of the time of this writing, the United States is experiencing a sharp upturn in cases.   What does all of this have to do with Christmas gifts? Since people are already looking for ways to keep themselves safe from COVID-19, why not give an air purifier to a friend or family member this year? Studies have shown that HEPA air filters can capture virus-sized particles in the air, helping your loved ones reduce the chances of COVID-19 spread in their households.   In addition to adding a layer of protection against viral transmission, an air purifier will help your loved one breathe cleaner, healthier air all year round. This can lead to fewer reactions during allergy season, improved sleep and a host of other health benefits.  

What Air Purifiers Are Best for Christmas Gifts?

  This year, we strongly recommend buying HEPA-equipped air purifiers as gifts. Since COVID-19 will be a major fact of life until at least spring or summer of 2021, it's best to get a unit that will offer some protection against viral pathogens. For some inspiration and great gift ideas, you can check out our article about the best air purifiers for COVID-19, published earlier this year.   For even more protection from bacteria and viruses, you may want to consider gifting an air purifier equipped with a UV germicidal lamp. These lamps use ultraviolet light to attack microbes and viruses in the air, neutralizing them as they pass through. We also have an article about UV-C air purifiers for COVID-19 that will help you get some good gift ideas.   If you're still not sure what air purifier to give as a gift, consider gifting a US Air Purifiers gift certificate instead. With our customizable gift certificates, you can select any amount between $10 and $500. You can also choose to have the certificate delivered digitally in an email or as a physical certificate. You can even include a personalized message to the recipient.   Have questions about which air purifiers are the right choice for your holiday gift-giving? We're here to help! Feel free to contact us, and we'll be happy to help you pick out the right air purifier to give your loved ones this holiday season.

Air Quality Improvements Save Thousands of Lives in Europe

It has been well documented that air pollution reduces lifespans and is associated with a wide variety of health problems. Fortunately, this also means that improvements in air quality can have the opposite effects. This fact was proven recently by a report from the European Environment Agency. In that report, the EEA found that better air quality in European countries resulted in tens of thousands of fewer premature deaths in 2018.  

What Did the EEA Report Show?

  The latest EEA air quality report looked specifically at exposure to fine particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide, two of the most dangerous components of air pollution. Based on air quality and death data, the agency estimated that some 60,000 fewer Europeans died prematurely in 2018 than in 2009 as a result of fine particulate matter exposure, while deaths associated with nitrogen dioxide had fallen by more than half.   These findings confirmed that even modest increases in air quality were associated with lower premature mortality rates. Over the last decade, many European countries have been successful in significantly reducing levels of both fine particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide. Of the EU member countries surveyed, only six were found to still have fine particulate matter levels above the EU's guideline limits.  

Why There's Still Lots of Work to Be Done

  Although the saving of 60,000 lives is obviously cause for celebration, the news isn't all good. The EAA report found that approximately 417,000 people still died prematurely in Europe as the result of air pollution exposure in 2018. While the numbers have dropped off considerably from a decade earlier, that's still far too many excess deaths resulting from unclean air.   The situation in Europe is largely mirrored in the United States. Between 1990 and 2010, the number of US deaths associated with air pollution dropped by 47 percent. This drop reflected a period in which air quality was more or less improving consistently as a result of stricter emissions controls and improving energy technologies.  

Can an Air Purifier Help With Air Pollution?

  One of the best steps you can take to reduce your exposure to air pollution is to use a high-quality HEPA and carbon filter air purifier in your home. Even though it won't help with outdoor pollution, a good air purifier can at least remove dangerous contaminants from your home air, thus reducing your overall exposure.   Using an air purifier in your home is especially important if you live in a heavily polluted area or a densely populated city. In these environments, pollution from industrial facilities or heavy traffic can easily make its way into your house. Once inside, these pollutants can have negative effects on your health and reduce the overall air quality in your home.   Have questions about using air purifiers to keep the air in your home clean and healthy?

Will an Air Purifier Remove Mold Spores?

One of the many common questions we see people asking about air purifiers is "Will an air purifier remove mold spores?" While this may seem like a simple question, there's a little more nuance to it than you might expect. Let's take a look at whether an air purifier can remove mold spores and what kind of air purifier you need for this purpose.  

First, Let's Answer the Question

  The simple answer to this question is yes, an air purifier can filter mold spores out of the air. With that said, not all air purifiers are equipped to do this. To remove spores, an air purifier needs to have a HEPA filter, which is a type of filter used to remove solid particles from the air. On average, a mold spore is between 10 and 30 microns in diameter. A HEPA filter, meanwhile, must be able to remove particles as small as 0.3 microns at an efficiency of at least 99.97 percent. Because of this requirement, air purifiers with HEPA filters can actually remove mold spores quite easily.   Some air purifiers, however, aren't equipped with filters meant to capture solid particles. Generally, these purifiers are specialized units meant to focus exclusively on gases or VOCs in the air. While most general-use air purifiers do have a HEPA filter, it's important to keep in mind that not every air purifier on the market will have the ability to remove mold spores. Many air purifiers also combine HEPA filters with gas-focused filtration. These combination air purifiers can be very useful for dealing with mold, since they can help to remove airborne mold toxins as well as spores.  

Will an Air Purifier Get Rid of Mold Growing in Your House?

  Although an air purifier with a HEPA filter will remove mold spores, it won't get rid of established mold already growing in your home. For that, you'll need either thorough cleaning or professional mold remediation. For more information about dealing with mold infestations in your home check out this blog post from us about household mold and how to get rid of it.  

What Are the Best Air Purifiers for Mold Spore Removal?

  Now that we've answered the question of will an air purifier remove mold spores, let's take a look at a few of the units that are best for this application. Some of our top picks for mold spores include:     You can also check out one of our older posts about the best air purifiers for mold to learn more. In that article, we offer in-depth looks at a total of 6 air purifiers that we believe are among the best for dealing with mold spores in home air.   Mold can pose health risks and do damage to your property if it gets established and begins to grow. With the right air purifier, though, you can keep mold spores out of your air and prevent it from getting a foothold in the first place. Whether you're dealing with existing mold issues or simply trying to protect your home from new infestations, using an air purifier can help to eliminate harmful spores from the air you breathe.   Have more questions about using air purifiers to help keep your home air free of mold?

COVID-19 and Air Pollution Linked, New Research Suggests

As scientists continue to study the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for the global COVID-19 pandemic, new information is constantly coming to light about factors that affect its spread. One of the most surprising recent findings is that the rate of COVID-19 spread is linked to long-term air pollution exposure. Here's what you should know about the link between COVID-19 and air pollution.  

How Does Air Pollution Affect COVID-19?

  The outcomes of COVID-19 and air pollution appear to be linked in two distinct ways. To begin with, it appears that the disease spreads faster among populations exposed to high levels of fine particulate matter in the air over long periods of time. A recent study published in the journal Science of the Total Environment concluded that this form of air pollution was associated with an increase in the basic reproductive number (R0) of COVID-19, which reflects the number of new cases each existing case of the disease can be expected to produce. Specifically, the researchers found that an increase of just one microgram per cubic meter of fine particulate matter increased R0 by 0.25. In other words, populations living in heavily polluted areas were likely to experience considerably faster spread of the disease than those living in places with cleaner air.   In addition to increasing the rate of spread, air pollution has also been linked to higher mortality rates from COVID-19. Due to the already known negative effects of particulate air pollution on cardiovascular health, it appears that long-term exposure increases the likelihood of COVID-19 leading to severe symptoms or even death. Recent findings concluded that up to 15 percent of global COVID-19 fatalities could be linked to long-term air pollution exposure.   With these new findings in mind, it's clear that COVID-19 and air pollution are a dangerous mix. If you live in a heavily polluted area, your risks of contracting and experiencing severe symptoms from the disease are both increased. As the pandemic continues, it's becoming increasingly clear that responses to it must take into account the effects of poor air quality.  

Can an Air Purifier Help?

  Protecting yourself from air pollution can be quite difficult. Unfortunately, you can't do much to change how polluted the air in your area is. You can, however, use an air purifier to reduce your exposure to air pollution at home. A purifier with a combination of HEPA and carbon filtration is best for this application, as it can target multiple components commonly found in air pollution.   With regards to the link between COVID-19 and air pollution, an air purifier can also serve the purpose of helping to capture viral particles in the air. As we've detailed several times since initially reporting on the use of air purifiers for COVID-19 at the beginning of the pandemic, HEPA air filters are capable of capturing airborne particles the size of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.   Some of our top recommended air purifiers for COVID-19 protection that also feature the carbon filtration needed to capture gaseous components of air pollution include the Amaircare 3000 HEPA, Airpura P600 and AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Exec UV. These units all offer the combination of HEPA and carbon filters that is needed to protect against both air pollution and airborne viruses.   Needless to say, using an air purifier won't eliminate the risks of COVID-19 or air pollution. It is, however, an extra layer of protection that may help keep you safer as the pandemic continues to surge.   Have questions about which air purifier is right for you? We're here to help!
