Working Principle of The Purifiers
Air purifiers have many different types whose working principles are different from one another. A most common model is using an internal fan inhaling air into the purifier and through the combination of filters. Each layer of filter has its own features to filter particles. Some air purifiers without fan use tilter cartridges in heating ducts. The ionizer purifiers have a different method. They have no filters. No matter using a fan or not, they purify the air by releasing the microscopic negative ions into the air. They are like magnets attracting the airborne particles. When they combined, their weight will drag them into the ground letting them under the inhaled height and leaving no threat to human health.
Source of Indoor Air Pollution
Many airborne contaminants can take responsibility to the indoor air pollution. Dust, smoke, pet hair and some microbe such as viruses are floating all over the air. Apart from these contaminants, the toxicants from furniture, plastics and the residue of cleaning supplies paint can also pollute the indoor air.
