What Is an Air Purifier?

An air purifier is a device designed to improve indoor air quality by removing airborne contaminants such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and smoke from the air in a specific room or area. Most air purifiers work by drawing air through a series of filters — including HEPA filters that capture particles and activated carbon — which absorbs odors and gaseous pollutants. 

The best air purifier for a given space depends on the specific needs of the user, such as the size of the area to be cleaned and the type of contaminants to be removed. Many models are energy efficient and come with features like remote control for ease of use, making them a practical addition to living rooms and other indoor spaces.

What Is an Air Scrubber?

Air scrubbers take air purification a step further by not only cleaning the air but also sanitizing surfaces. Using a combination of filters and UV light, air scrubbers are capable of eliminating surface contaminants and airborne particles, including mold spores and fungal spores, making them an integral part of maintaining a healthy indoor environment. 

These devices are often installed within the HVAC system, allowing them to clean and purify the air throughout the entire house. Air scrubbers are particularly beneficial in environments where hygiene is a paramount concern, functioning almost as medical devices to protect against a wide array of pollutants.

Signs That Your Home Could Benefit From an Air Scrubber or Purifier

Stale Air

When a building suffers from stale and stuffy air, investing in an air purifier or scrubber is a wise decision. Stale air, characterized by a lack of circulation and buildup of pollutants, can significantly impact indoor air quality. An air purifier can address this issue by continuously cycling the air through its filters, thereby removing airborne contaminants and injecting clean air back into the room.

This process not only improves the air quality but also helps to prevent the accumulation of pollutants that contribute to the staleness of indoor air. For larger spaces or where there is a need for a more comprehensive solution, an air scrubber integrated into the HVAC system can ensure that clean, fresh air is distributed throughout the entire house.

Excessive Dustiness

Excessive dustiness in a building is a clear signal that an air purifier or scrubber may be needed. Dust can accumulate from various sources, including outdoor air, human skin cells, and fabric fibers, and can contain allergens like dust mites and pet hair. An air purifier equipped with a true HEPA filter is adept at capturing these particles, significantly reducing the amount of dust in the air.

Regular filter replacements are necessary to maintain the efficiency of the device. For environments with high levels of dust, an air scrubber can offer an additional layer of cleaning by not only purifying the air but also reducing the presence of surface contaminants that can contribute to dustiness.

Worsened Respiratory Issues

Individuals suffering from worsened respiratory issues may find relief with the use of an air purifier or scrubber. Airborne contaminants, including pet dander, pollen, and dust, can exacerbate allergy symptoms and other respiratory conditions. An air purifier with a HEPA filter can effectively remove these particles from the air, potentially reducing symptoms and improving overall health. 

Furthermore, devices that utilize activated carbon filters can also remove cooking odors and gaseous pollutants, which can further irritate respiratory conditions. For those looking for a comprehensive solution, an air scrubber can additionally minimize the presence of mold spores and fungal spores.

Mold Growth

The presence of mold growth in a building is a serious concern that can affect indoor air quality and occupant health. Mold spores, a type of fungal spore, can become airborne and, when inhaled, can lead to health issues, particularly in individuals with allergies or weakened immune systems.

An air purifier with a HEPA filter can capture these spores, thereby reducing their concentration in the indoor air. Additionally, an air scrubber with UV light can offer the added benefit of killing mold spores, preventing their reproduction and spread. This approach ensures the air remains clean and reduces the risk associated with mold exposure.

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
