Air purifier, worth buying?

An air purifier, not to be confused with an air ionizer or an air humidifier, can be used in a preventive and/or curative way, at home, in closed offices, or coworking places, shops, hairdressing salons, hotels, or restaurants. By extension, as a result of Covid-19, it is becoming increasingly important in schools, hospitals and other developed areas.

An air Purifier absorbs and processes the air, removes pollutants, and particles, then releases purified air into the room or premises where it is located.

Sometimes it’s not enough to open a window to let fresh air in. What if it’s fire season, or you’re near a factory, or it’s too cold outside, too noisy, etc. and you would rather breathe unbreathable air instead of opening up a window?

But there is more!

As the world gets hotter and more crowded, engines continue to pump out toxic emissions, and half the world has no access to clean fuels or technologies, the very air we breathe is growing dangerously polluted: nine out of ten people now breathe polluted air, which kills 7 million people every year. co2 emissions

Air pollution is hard to escape, no matter how wealthy the area you live in is. It is all around us. Microscopic pollutants in the air can slip past our body’s defenses, penetrating deep into our respiratory and circulatory systems, damaging our lungs, heart, and brain.

The health effects of air pollution are serious; one-third of deaths from stroke, lung cancer, and heart disease are due to air pollution.

Harvard professor Joseph Allen says: “A lot of air is circulating. And we don’t just want to circulate air contaminated with viruses, so you want to use air purifiers”.

Yes! Air purifiers are worth the money! There are many factors to back this up:

Air purifiers get rid of dust.

Yes, air purifiers are worth fighting dust, pollen, pet hair, and other particles flowing in the air, you can be sure that it will efficiently eliminate all these particles. In fact, this is one of the most common reasons people choose to buy air purifiers.

The promise of an air purifier is an enticing one: An appliance designed to cleanse the air in your home, getting rid of all the impurities including odors, smoke, dust, and pet dander.

Air Purifiers Relieve Allergy and Asthma Symptoms.

An air purifier is excellent at fighting dust particles, pollen, mold, pet dander, and other particles that can cause severe allergies.

You want to let fresh air in, but you can’t because you immediately start sneezing and coughing, your eyes are full of tears, and all you can do is close the window in the same instant. Of course, the window must be closed when the air purifier is on, as pollen and dust can fill the room with such particles much quicker than usual. Still, the feeling of freshness that an air purifier provides allows you to finally breathe at total lung capacity in your own home. It makes you wish you had bought an air purifier much sooner!

People who suffer from asthma or have some type of allergy to pollen have successfully suppressed their symptoms and made their daily lives easier with the help of an air purifier.

Does an Air Purifier Help Against Odors?

Cooking smells, pet odors, mold, cigarette smoke, and a myriad of other things cause odors to appear in every household. Whichever is most common in your home, an air purifier will successfully eliminate and leave only clean air. If the pollution is too high, it will significantly reduce unpleasant odors.

If you’re a cooking enthusiast, but sometimes the smell coming into all parts of your kitchen gets on your nerves, or your kitchen doesn’t have ventilation to turn on while you cook, then you’re sure to fall in love with an air purifier that will help you get rid of kitchen smells.

In addition, the paint from the walls, parquet, furniture, and everything you bring into the house, emits certain odors that remain in the walls of your home. An air purifier is an essential device for almost every household to help you neutralize these scents. Garbage being disposed

Air Purifiers Reduce Harmful Toxins

We don’t realize how many household appliances that surround us every day emit certain harmful and toxic particles into the air. Many chemical cleaners that help you clean your household also release some damaging substances into the air we breathe. Whether the window is open at the time or not, they remain on the furniture, walls, and floors.compound molecule image

Air Purifiers are Good at Fighting VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
These toxic and detrimental particles, which can be found in the air, can seriously damage the respiratory tract and sensitive parts such as the eyes and nose region.

How do Air Purifiers work?

Air purifiers usually consist of a filter, or multiple filters, and a fan that sucks in and circulates air. As air moves through the filter, pollutants and particles are captured, and the clean air is pushed back out into the living space.

What should I look for in an air purifier?

CADR (clean-air delivery rate) rating. This measures the cleaning speed of the purifier for removing smoke, dust, and pollen. Looking for a CADR of at least 300, above 350 is great.

Size guidelines. For proper efficacy, you need a model that will work for your room size. Choose a model that is designed for an area larger than the one you are outfitting it for if you want to operate it at a lower, quieter setting.

Verification from AHAM (Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers). AHAM’s standards are designed to ensure the safety, efficiency, and performance of many home care appliances, including air purifiers. The standards provide a common understanding between manufacturers and consumers to help make the purchasing process simpler. While voluntary, most reputable air purifiers have undergone this certification program, which often provides a CADR rating and size guidelines.

True HEPA. True HEPA filters are effective at removing ultra-fine particles (think: dust, dandruff, pollen, mold, and other common allergens in the home). The industry standard is that the unit must be able to remove at least 99.97% of particulates measuring 0.3-micron diameter in a lab setting. Remember, it is important to note that in real-life settings, the actual efficacy of these devices would be far less as new pollutants are constantly emerging. Note that there is no industry standard for the terms “HEPA-like” or “HEPA-type,” and these phrases are mostly used as marketing ploys to get consumers to purchase the product.

Check our EHG Technology…

We are leaders in research and development for the technological innovation of surface and air purification through the study of molecular evolution. We ensure 99.9% of effectiveness. This technology is used by NASA.

The new EHG (ELECTRON AND HOLES GENERATOR) technology has been used to develop an air purification system (with studies and research in the aerobiology and biotechnology fields) that absorbs light energy and part of it into electrons and electron holes by photocatalysis. A substance (known as a photocatalyst) modifies, by the action of natural or artificial light, the speed of a chemical reaction, thereby mimicking photosynthesis.

In the end, you do need an air purifier if you want to improve the air quality around you and as a result, your health.

The world is polluted, climate change is happening, and if you watch the news, you know that things are not getting better. We can expect more pollution in the following years unless something drastic happens with our industry and how we treat our planet.

Drastic solutions may arise in the future but for now, clean air is indispensable to have a high quality of life; to reduce your chances of you or your loved ones getting sick and missing out on daily life, to have a safe and clean environment to be in and to worry less about the air you are breathing. At Tc Air Ion we are committed about looking out after your health and we provide the perfect solution with our air purifiers.
