Should an air purifier be top of your Christmas list?

Home air purifiers are becoming more popular, partly as a response to concerns over air quality and virus transmission when indoors. While our homes are often designed to keep us warm, many of us are spending much more time indoors and so are becoming exposed to more indoor particles and pollutants that can induce or aggravate breathing issues. Air purifiers are a reliable solution to get rid of indoor pollutants and are certainly worth adding to your home.

Air purifiers essentially work by cleaning the air, which may include pollutants, allergens, and toxins. Unlike essential oil diffusers and humidifiers, which add particles to indoor air, an air purifier not only removes particles but cleans the air too.

The effectiveness of air purifiers has been questioned but it has been shown that they are effective at removing allergens which is of particular benefit to those with allergies to dust mites, pollen, and pet dander.

Like allergens, indoor mould particles can become especially dangerous for people with asthma and other lung conditions. Air purifiers may work to some degree, but filtration is far more effective in getting rid of mould in the air. Filter-equipped air purifiers may also remove smoke in the air, including tobacco smoke. So, if you want to breathe easy this winter try an air purifier.
