Do Air Purifiers Work? Yes!
You may be wondering if having an air purifier is worth it? We’re here to break down the facts about air purifiers and how they can keep us healthy and comfortable in our homes.
Air purifiers do a great job of cleansing our indoor air. They refresh old, stale air by eliminating airborne pollutants, allergens and odors. This may reduce the chances of health issues such as, respiratory infections, neurological problems or aggravation of asthma.
Clean Air Helps Reduce the Spread of Sickness in Your Household
Clean air is truly essential to your home, especially if you live with elderly people, children, or anyone with a weakened immune system.
Airborne bacteria and viruses are spread through tiny pathogens floating around in the air. It’s common that if one person in your household gets sick, another one will too. Having an air purifier can capture these pathogens and help remove them before they spread to other members of your household.
Cleaner Air to Help Improve Sleep
Those who suffer from allergies know what it’s like to go weeks with a runny nose, frequent sneezing, coughing, congestion, watery eyes that can all disrupt your sleep. That’s no fun!
Without a good night’s sleep, it can be hard to be productive throughout the day and can affect your mood, energy levels and overall well-being. An air purifier does a great job of filtering out those allergens, so you can breathe easier and improve your night’s sleep.
Say Goodbye to Unpleasant Odors
No one wants to walk into their home and smell odors! Part of an air purifier’s job is to reduce indoor odors. You may have heard of chemicals called, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). These are commonly found in paints, aerosol sprays, upholstered furniture and air fresheners.
Air purifiers will take care of eliminating these odors and dissipating smoke particles. The air purifier absorbs the particles, leaving your home fresh and clean.

More Ideas to Improve Indoor Air Quality
For best results and the cleanest air, an air purifier is the way to go. However, there are other steps you can take to help improve your indoor air quality.
- Vacuum the carpets at least once a week to prevent the build up of dust, dirt and dander.
- Get a few indoor plants. Plants act as natural air filters.
- Allow for cross-ventilation. Open up windows and doors on opposite sides of your home to promote air flow.
- Exhaust fans in the kitchen can help dissipate smoke after cooking.
- Turn on fans in the bathroom and laundry room to reduce humidity. This helps prevent the build up of mold and bacteria.
- If you have an AC unit, it can help circulate and filter stale air.
