5 Benefits of Having an Air Purifier


If you grew up in the 90s, 80s, 70s, 60s, 50s, and beyond, you might be surprised (annoyed, even) at how so many things seem to be handled with kid gloves today.

Whereas back in the day, there were cars with no seatbelts and adults smoked wherever they pleased, now, you have to make sure that you feed your family exclusively gluten-free organic foods from fair trade companies that don’t genetically modify their products. Kids can’t even take peanut butter sandwiches to school anymore, because, you know, anaphylactic shock or whatever.

And now, you hear all this talk about air purifiers. You tilt your head. Air purifiers, you think, as you slowly nod your head and ponder whether you really need one.

Well, we’re here to tell you about the benefits of having one. Once you have read the entire list, you can make an informed decision as to how to proceed.

1. They will reduce sneezes.

If you or a family member suffers from allergies, you know (a) how annoying it is to have to constantly sneeze, (b) how ridiculous it gets to say “bless you” every 42 seconds, and (c) how disgusting it is to think about all of those saliva particles floating around in the air for the rest of you to breathe in.

An air purifier will absorb the allergens floating in the air inside your home. As a result, you reduce the amount of particles that trigger all that sneezing.

2. It’ll make your home smell better.

No matter how much you clean your home, sometimes, it just smells… iffy. Whether it’s last night’s dinner, your four cats, or that one cigarette you like to have occasionally, these type of smells will make anyone who walks in think that you’re not the cleanest person in the world. And even if you have no visitors, do you really want to live in a home that smells like three-days-old tuna fish?

3. It’ll combat mold.

One of the most frustrating things that can happen to a homeowner is to find out they have a major problem, such as mold. It usually entails moving your family out of your home temporarily, tearing down walls, and eliminating the spores. It’s costly, time consuming, and a colossal nuisance.

That’s when HEPA filters come in handy (HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air). These type of filters eliminate mold spores in the air.

4. It’ll keep your home cleaner.

Since air purifiers absorb dust mites and dust, there will be less of it settling on your furniture. You’ll still have to clean regularly, but there won’t be as much accumulation of dust as if in spaces with no air purifier.

5. They will keep you healthy.

Have you ever gotten the flu? How enjoyable was it? HEPA air purifiers absorb airborne germs that cause cold and flu. You can wipe all surfaces in your home with Lysol all you want, but there’s still that kind of important thing that’s all around you: the air you breathe.

All things considered, air purifiers provide you with plenty of benefits. That said, not all purifiers are created equal. There are portable ones, the kind you can install in your entire home or business, HEPA air filters, ozone generators, and electrostatic precipitators, to name a few.
