According to the EPA the air inside your home may be more polluted than the air outside; news of particular concern to allergy sufferers or those with weakened immune systems including children and the elderly. This issue is further compounded in newer homes where innovative building practices limit the amount of fresh air that is exchanged, forcing harmful particulates to recirculate throughout your living space. Fortunately, there are a number of air purification solutions available for residential use including one of the most efficient and effective systems on the market: electronic air purifiers.

Regardless of age your home is designed to prevent heat loss and gain through a variety of means including insulation, weatherstripping, and thermal doors and windows. The same methods that help to keep heating and cooling costs low prevent you from enjoying the perks of fresh air exchange, but an electronic air purifier helps by producing a large number of negative ions similar to amounts found in clean country air to reduce the impact of harmful indoor pollutants. Benefits of this technology include:
The molecules that surround us have a stable, neutral charge, and an electronic air purifier works at the molecular level to create electrically charged ions that work together to remove microorganisms, particulates, and odors from your indoor air.
Ions are either negatively or positively charged, and an electronic air purifier uses electricity to create equal amounts of negative and positive ions and releases them into the air. Once there they attach themselves to pollutants and harmful gases or bacteria and break them down into innocuous compounds such as oxygen, nitrogen, or water vapor. Powerful ions also work to remove the hydrogen molecules from pathogens such as bacteria, mold, or viruses, effectively removing their energy source and causing them to die, and further attach themselves to allergens such as pollen, dust, or dander, rendering them too heavy to remain suspended and more readily trapped in filters.
Air purifiers contain fans that pull in surrounding air and then push it back out. In between, the air flows through filters (usually at least two) that capture pollutant particles such as pollen, dust and pet dander. Most air purifiers allow you to choose different fan speeds, which can change both how quickly your device works and how much noise it makes.
An air purifier will improve the overall indoor air quality and in turn, improve your health. We tend to associate air pollution only with outdoor air; however, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air pollution levels can be as many as two to five times higher than outdoor pollutant levels.
For optimum results, all air purifiers should be run continuously. When the air purifier is turned off, indoor air pollution returns to its pre-treatment state.
No. An air purifier will not cure asthma or allergies. It will, however, help lessen the amount of pollutants in the air that you breathe, which in turn may provide you with some relief from the symptoms associated with these conditions.
