Allergy problems are caused by many substances, alive or not. Actually, we are breathing in many living things every minute in our daily life such as bacteria and other micro-organisms. Most of the time they are not harmful to our health, but sometimes they are. They may give you colds and flus. As a common allergen, pollen can give many people an allergy in spring. Some of it is easily seen, and you can wear a mask to block it, but for those of microscopic size, you can only count on an air purifier. The main allergy problems can be solved by using air purifiers with HEPA and UV filters.
The Air Purifier with HEPA and UV Filters
The HEPA filters together with ultraviolet lamps are the perfect combination for dealing with allergy problems. The HEPA filters can filter nearly every particle in the air. They can intercept over 99.7 percent of particulates. And a UV lamp can destroy most microscopic bacteria in the air. By using a purifier with both functions, you can greatly improve the air quality in your home or office.
The Air Purifier with Ionic Filters
Apart from HEPA purifiers, ionic filters are popular among portable air purifiers. You can clip one to a belt, or keep it around your neck with a strap. However, ionic purifiers have some defects. Using them requires suitable ventilation, or you will feel it’s hard to breathe, and your chest will tighten due to the accumulation of ozone in an enclosed space. Much bad publicity has surrounded ionic filters recently. The American Lung Association has confirmed that they cause breathing problems. Also, the EPA has announced that they do not recommend the use of this kind of device. If you have already purchased one of these, you don’t need to cast it aside. The bad effects will only occur when the ozone accumulation is over a certain percentage. In order to eliminate this problem, you can just use a fan.
The Air Purifier with Charcoal Filters
Charcoal purifiers are only targeted at removing dust and smells from the air. The nature of the charcoal means that it can effectively remove the bigger particles but not the smaller ones. Nowadays, with the development of technology, many filtering systems are available. The charcoal purifier used to be No. 1 on the sales list, but its time is over. Purifiers with HEPA or ULPA filters are getting more and more popular. With these new devices attached to the purifier, it can filter smaller particles as well as some microbes.
