Air purifiers are designed to improve air quality in homes. As one in 13 households have children with asthma, air purifiers are becoming especially important for many families. This article looks at what air purifiers do and the ways they can help homeowners in Indiana, PA.
What’s an Air Purifier?
An air purifier cleans the air by removing allergens, pollutants and toxins. This device usually has a filter and a fan. The fan draws in air, while the filter captures pollutants.
Some air purifiers use negative ions to attract pollutants and neutralize them. You should make sure the model you buy doesn’t produce ozone, which can irritate your lungs.
How Do Air Purifiers Work?
Air purifiers work to remove most contaminants from the air. They won’t remove all the particles in your home because many contaminants get stuck on furniture, bedding and walls. They remove what’s floating in the air, though.

What Particles Do Air Purifiers Eliminate?
Air purifiers remove allergens from the air. Allergens are a big problem for children and adults with asthma or allergies. Common allergens include pollen, pet dander and dust mites.
Air purifiers remove smoke from the air, too, such as from landscape fires or cigarettes. These devices can’t remove all traces of smoke from the air, but they do improve air quality significantly.
