Answers to Common Questions About Air Purifiers and Humidifiers
Do Air Purifiers Really Work?
If you have allergies to dust or pollen, you’ll find that a personal air purifier is a great choice for reducing pollutants in your home. An air purifier machine can also effectively remove substances like smoke particles and mold spores from the air.
Which Brand of Air Purifier Is the Best?
The best choice for an air purifier will depend on your needs. We offer discounted products from the top brands, including products that cover a spectrum of potential uses. Consider the square footage of the space you want to purify, whether you want a humidifier as well, how powerful of a fan you want the product to have, and whether you need a space-saving design or have room for a larger model. If you want a larger personal air purifier, ENVION and NuvoMed are great brands. Sunbeam makes high-quality purifiers as well, and pureAIR’s compact plug-in models are highly rated by many purchasers.
Do Ionizers Really Clean the Air?
Ionizers don’t really clean the air: Instead, they release negatively charged ions that bond to pollutant particles, forcing them to stick to surfaces like furniture, walls, and potentially the insides of your lungs. In addition, ionizers can release harmful ozone into the air. Instead, we recommend a portable air purifier that uses HEPA filtration, which captures particles filtered out of the air. These types of purifiers are effective and much safer to use.
What Is the Purpose of a Humidifier?
Humidifiers are devices that emit water vapor to add moisture to the air. Low humidity levels in your home can cause dry skin and eyes and irritate the nose and throat. A humidifier can also help to ease sinus congestion when you have a cold.
Should a Humidifier Be Placed High or Low?
The higher up you place a humidifier, the better, as it will have better reach to spray the water vapor into the air, allowing it to mix with the air and spread throughout the room. Consider the size of the room versus the size of the humidifier when you’re deciding where to put it: If you want to place a small humidifier in your large bedroom, it’s best to keep it raised up and closer to your bed to make sure that the vapor will reach you.
Is it OK to Sleep Next to a Humidifier?
Yes, as long as you check the humidity of the room from time to time to make sure that it’s not too high. While using a personal humidifier at night can help to keep your skin and your throat from getting dry as you sleep, too much of a good thing can encourage mold and bacteria growth.
What Can I Put in My Humidifier to Kill Bacteria?
It’s important to clean your humidifier once a week, using a solution of a half-cup of bleach and a gallon of water. Make sure to rinse it very well so that no trace of bleach remains.
