Air Pollution And Air Purifiers By Jason Uvios

It doesn’t matter where you are, as long as you are not in one of those hi-tech labs or anything, you will be encountered with polluted air. These days air purifiers are being sold with the promise of cleansing this air. But before you invest on an air purifier it helps if you understand what are the sources of pollution and how air is actually polluted. A) Pollution due to Particulates: Generally not visible to the naked eye particulates would be made up of dust, dust mites, dust mite feces, pet dander, skin flakes, pollen, smoke particles and allergens. Generally a purifier with HEPA filters and the ionizers together are good enough to deal with the particulates. B) Pollution caused by Odor: The source of odor can be wide ranging. It can be coming from food, pets, our own bodies, cigarettes, clothing, etc. Although odors are not necessarily dangerous, but they can leave you with an unpleasant feeling which you wouldn’t want. The purifiers which have active carbon filters in them are the best to deal with the problem of odor. C) Pollution caused by Microbials: Microbials would include bacteria, fungi, mildew, mold spores and viruses. Normal filters wouldn’t be able to deal with them as some of them can be as small as .001 microns. Compared to that HEPA filters can be effective for anything above the size of 0.3 microns. Microbials have their homes in warm, damp places like under the carpet, in the walls and in the heating and and air conditioning ducts of our homes. The best way to deal with microbials is to have those devices that can produce oxidation. They help in killing these microbials. D) Pollution caused by Chemical Fumes and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC): The source of this pollution are chemicals like benzene and formaldehyde. The fumes of these are constantly being released by our carpets, upholstery, furniture, draperies, household cleaning products, etc. Other sources would include cigarette smoke, construction materials, etc. Many of them have been identified as carcinogens. The best available solution today in the market are those devices that produce oxidation. This is a

What Are Air Purifiers? By Amy K. Spade

As the name indicates, air purifiers are intended to keep the air we breathe as free as possible from allergens, dust and other air-borne pollutants. There are many different types of air purifiers, some being more advanced than others. There is also a distinction between office and home air purifiers. Air purifiers therefore serve two main purposes, which though seemingly similar, are not. One is to keep the air clean from germs and microbes and the other is to rid the air of allergy-causing agents such as pollens. It is important to know that no air purifier can do everything; some are better suited for some functions than others. There are three basic technologies employed by air purifiers: electrostatic / electronic, adsorption and mechanical filtering. Electrostatic technology uses the principle of positive and negative attraction. As such electrostatic air purifiers use charged plates, which attract the pollutants in the air. Adsorption is the process by which some odors such as cigarette smoke are removed from a room. However, this technology does little in the way of removing tiny particles such as dust and microbes. Mechanical filtering uses a screen to clear the air of pollens; however, it does not work on clearing away unpleasant odors. There are many different types of air purifiers which use one or the other or even a combination of the technologies mentioned above. The most popular types of air purifiers are ozone air purifiers, HEPA Filters, Ionic air Purifiers and Ultraviolet Light air Purifiers. HEPA filters generally remove over 99 percent of the particles floating around in the air. The main disadvantage of HEPA filters is its inability to remove odor from the air. Ozone and carbon air purifiers are great for removing odor from the air. One of the most effective air purifiers in clearing the air of microbes is the Ultraviolet light purifier. The type of air purifier you purchase depends on the purpose for which you want it. If you need it to both clean the air and eliminate mold spores and other pollutants you may need to purchase two purifiers. http://www and read more of Sally’s articles.
