What is an air purifier good for?

People who are considering purchasing an air purifier often wonder what exactly an air purifier is good for. In this article we answer this question.

What is in our indoor air?

The air we breathe indoors every day is invisible, but it can be full of impure particles. These particles can come from within, such as bacteria, allergens and germs. For example, if you have a cold or flu, you spread bacteria that end up in the air. And if you have pets, allergens are spread in the form of hair and dander that your pet sheds.

The impure particles can also come from outside, when the window or door is open. Consider (fine) dust and pollen.

In addition, there may also be unpleasant odors in the air, for example from cooking or from your pets.

Impurities in the air can make your allergies worse and your asthma can also get worse. In addition, deteriorated air quality can cause other complaints, such as headaches, shortness of breath, dry eyes or a dry throat. These complaints arise because there is too little clean air in the house.

What is the added value of an air purifier?

An air purifier removes impure particles from the air and replaces them with new fresh air. This increases the air quality in your environment and reduces the chance of complaints that you may experience as a result of bad air.

In concrete terms, an air purifier does the following:

  • An air purifier filters pollen and (fine) dust from the air, so you are less likely to suffer from allergies such as hay fever and asthma;
  • An air purifier filters allergens from the air so that you suffer less from pet allergies;
  • An air purifier filters bad odors from the air so that your home smells fresh again;
  • An air purifier filters bacteria and germs from the air so that the air quality in your home increases;
  • An air purifier replaces impure air with new fresh air so that you can sleep better and experience fewer complaints such as headaches, burning eyes or shortness of breath.
