What is the purpose of an air purifier?
According to the E.P.A. (Environmental Protection Agency), indoor air may be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. With Americans spending up to 90 percent more time indoors, indoor air quality is a huge concern.
Air purifiers assist to remove impurities in the air we breathe. For example: dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke, mold spores, and other airborne pollutants.
Most air purifiers use a woven material to capture particles as they try to pass through. This woven material or air filter, accumulates trapped particles. As these impurities accumulate in the filter, the filter’s effectiveness will be reduced by restricted air flow. Be sure to discard the purifier’s dirty filter and replace with a new filter regularly.
