The Benefits Of Air Purifiers To Your Health

By Robert Ezilon.com articles Published 09/30/2008 | Health

The most common reason for a person to buy an air purifier is for health concerns.  You might be concerned about the quality of air your family is breathing. You might have a family member with respiratory problems.  Whatever your reason, there are definite health benefits in owning an air purifier.

Consider the following benefits of air purifiers to your health:


The right air purifier will filter the ozone out of the air.  This is what you want it to do.  Ozone is very harmful to your health.  Make sure your air purifier has a HEPA filter so that you will get the most from it.  The HEPA filter is a high quality filter that will clean your air and remove contaminants.  If you have an air purifier labeled ionic or electrostatic it is probably producing ozone.  You may want to consider the health benefits of other air purifiers with HEPA filters.


Where will you be using the air purifier?   In order to get the best health benefits from an air purifier you must consider where the purifier will be used.  Small rooms do not need large filters and a large one would be a waste of your money.  A large room will need a larger air purifier in order to filter all of the air in the room.


After purchasing an air purifier some people are dismayed at the maintenance their purchase requires.   They may have to constantly replace filters or spend huge chunks of time rinsing the filters they have.  You do not want to have this problem after putting out the money for your air purifier.  Before buying be sure to check how the filters are replaced and  how often they have to be replaced to keep your air purifier working in optimal condition. 

Your air purifier will not benefit your health if it is not working.  Choose a reliable brand when purchasing an air purifier.  Also look at the warranty.  Most warranties for air purifiers last from one year to a lifetime.

You will find a wide range of air purifiers on the market today.  When buying an air purifier to benefit your health, and the health of your family, do the research.  Look for size and determine where you will be using the air purifier.  Make sure the air purifier you choose filters all contaminants out of the air. 

And one last suggestion-  When looking for an air purifier that will benefit your families health, find out how the filtration system works.  The more times a purifier sends air through a filter the better.  The first filtration will catch large particles and each succeeding filtration will catch smaller and smaller contaminants, making your air purer.  The more passes the cleaner the air.  And that is a huge health benefit for everyone!
