How can air purifiers counteract cigarette smoke?

When you encounter an atmosphere where you become a passive smoker because it’s a smoking environment and the air is filled with smoke from cigarettes, pipes, cigars and the like. This smoke is also known as environmental tobacco smoke. It has a very strong odor to it. Passive smoking is very dangerous. The pollutants remain trapped and pollute the air completely. It gets trapped in any kind of weaves such as furniture, clothes, carpet and rugs. This can result in a very obnoxious smell. Even more dangerous it is one of the major health hazards in the world today. There are close to 4,000 chemicals that a passive smoker inhales. Over 40 of them are…

HEPA Purifiers

Though HEPA filters may seem to be a new technology, the concept was actually developed during the Second World War by the US Atomic Energy Commission. It was first made to capture and remove radioactive dust from the air that could have presented a hazard to workers. The HEPA filter was designed to protect the human respiratory system. In fact, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for preventing transmission of tuberculosis recommend that HEPA filters be used. They are designed to filter out 99.97% or more of particles that are 0.3 microns in diameter or larger. A micron is a metric unit of measure that’s equal to one millionth of a meter. It…

UV Air Purifier Information

Several home air purifier manufacturers have started including an ultraviolet (UV) lamp in their air purifiers. The reason for a UV lamp is that ultraviolet light in sufficient doses kills certain harmful microorganisms like viruses and bacteria. The people who are most at risk from airborne harmful microorganisms are very old people and very young people. That’s why air purifiers with UV stages are often seen in nursing homes and in child care centers and pediatrician offices. Ultraviolet light is invisible to the human eye. The wavelength of UV light is shorter than the shortest-wavelength light we can see, which is violet. There are three types of UV light: UVA, the longest wavelength UV light;…

Why is Carbon Used in Air Purifiers?

Activated carbon is used in home air purifiers because, like air sponges, carbon filters trap airborne odors and gases. The reason it is called "activated" charcoal is that it’s been treated with oxygen. This opens up tiny pores between the carbon atoms and the pores trap the odors and gases. Carbon granules have a very convoluted surface, providing it with a large surface area to volume ratio, which makes carbon filters tops for trapping the gases that go through particulate filters first. But eventually, the pores become clogged with contaminants, and the filters must be replaced to function properly. (Picture Caption) You an see in these closeups that activated carbon has a honeycomb formation. The…

Guide to Air Purifier Repair

Indoor air pollution is a fact of life, and in many cases the air indoors is less healthy than the air outdoors. Between dirt, pet dander, dust, and various microorganisms, indoor air can get quite dirty. Many people use air purifiers to make the air that they breathe inside their homes cleaner. But like every other electronic appliance, air purifiers get dirty, and when that happens they run far less efficiently, but there is a lot you can do to improve its efficiency if you’re a reasonably confident do-it-yourselfer. Home air purifiers are fairly simple devices, and periodic maintenance according to the instruction manual can keep them running efficiently. You’ve probably at some point noticed…

Portable Air Cleaners

I will often talk about portable air cleaners/purifiers versus whole house purifiers/cleaners but what exactly do we mean by a portable air cleaner? Portable air purifiers/purifiers are those that can be moved to any part of the house. If you require your bedroom air to be cleaned then you can just unplug your portable purifier from your dining room and plug it in your room. I am a big fan of portable cleaners versus house purifiers which are a static system that are part of your homes air condition or heating system. Here are 5 reasons why I prefer portable cleaners: 1. Cheaper portable units can still be useful Cheap Portable cleaners can still be…
