Why an Air purifier?
An air purifier will improve the quality of the indoor air by purifying the air. The purpose of this device is to remove the spread of harmful substances (gases and particles). This prevents long-term allergic reaction, asthma or lung-related complaints. Children, the elderly and lung patients in particular benefit from an air purifier.
These devices can also be purchased as a preventive reason by people who have no specific problems but who want to protect their health and that of their environment. An air purifier is therefore primarily a device that is aimed at combating air pollution and the daily improvement of indoor air quality. Ventilation is often confused with this, but it is therefore another principle of an air purifier.
In every building there is air pollution, examples of this are fungi, bacteria, spores, viruses and unwanted odors. This is in air that you breathe, which is normally not a problem. But when the number of organisms increases to an unhealthy amount, you can certainly get sick.
A air purifier helps you combat air pollution and provides a safe living and working environment.
The pre-filter in an air purifier collects coarse dirt such as human hair / animal / pollen / coarse dust. It is placed directly between the suction valve and the other filters. It is the first filter system that is effective at the entry of air into the device. The pre-filter is generally washable, but it is recommended to replace a pre-filter very regularly. A pre-filter is often not that pricey and is in any case cheaper than the filters that come next. The power of regularly replacing the pre-filter extends the life of the other filters.
H13 HEPA Filter
Systems fitted with a H13- HEPA filter can retain more than 99,98% of particles larger than 0.3 µm. This filter is medical grade. It is composed of a layer of very fine fibers, and thanks to the tight fabric, mites, pollen, fungi, pesticides, bacteria, viruses, fine dust, animal hair or even diesel particles can be caught. The frequency of maintenance depends a bit on the nature of the problem, but in general you can say that a HEPA filter will last several months. Incidentally, a HEPA filter is not washable, so it must be replaced in its entirety.
The active carbon filter
The activated carbon filter is mainly used to destroy unpleasant odors in your home. It is a filter that contains granules of activated carbon and can therefore absorb toxic gases such as benzene, hydrogen sulphide, formaldehyde, ammonia vapors, bleach, unpleasant odors. Sometimes they can also absorb ozone.
Air purifier with ionization function
The ionizer is an electrical function is an air purifier that produces negatively charged molecules called anions. Under the influence of high electrical voltage, negatively charged ions are formed and then mainly bind to mites, germs, bacteria and fungal spores to neutralize dust, cigarette smoke, pollen and fungi.
Not only the dust particles from the air are neutralized, but also harmful gases such as formaldehyde, sulfur dioxide and hydrocarbon compounds. The ionizer generates between 20,000 and 200,000 ions per second. To guarantee a correct concentration, it is important that the relative humidity is between 40 and 60% (taking into account an ambient temperature of approximately 20 ° C).
The significant interest and revenue growth in the air cleaning industry is due to two dramatic developments: the first in 2002 with the SARS epidemic in Asia and the second in 2020, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. The industry's revenue in air cleaning is expected to double by 2023 for several reasons:
- Increase public awareness of the negative health effects of indoor air pollution;
- Increase in air pollution from greenhouse gases;
- Increased cases of allergic breathing disorders, especially in children;
- Fear of the outbreak of epidemics;
- Improve the quality and efficiency of the air purifier
- Air purifiers are durable and last a long time;
