You are planning to buy a device for your house, but before you make any decision, it’s essential to know the difference between air cleaners and sanitizers.
There are different types of air sanitizer and purification systems. Purification systems remove particles from the air and can help with allergies and respiratory problems, while air sanitizers kill bacteria in the air without removing particles.
What’s the Difference Between Air Sanitizers and Air Purifiers?
If you’re thinking about getting a new device to clean the air in your home, you may wonder what the difference is between an air purifier and an air sanitizer. You’re not alone. Many people looking into improving their indoor air quality have also found themselves confused by this terminology.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s answer some questions:
What is an Air Sanitizer?
An air sanitizer is a device that cleanses the air in your home by killing germs and bacteria. It releases negatively-charged ions into your environment, which attract positively charged particles like mold spores and bacteria to them—then zap them dead with UV light!
These devices have been proven effective at reducing airborne pathogens such as viruses, molds, and fungi in homes without harmful chemicals (although they do use ozone).
What Is An Air Purifier?
An air purifier also cleanses your home’s indoor environment of allergens while also killing germs and bacteria but does so with HEPA filters which remove over 99% of particulate matter down to 0.3 microns in size! This includes dust mites (those tiny bugs), pollen grains, and more significant pollutants like pet dander—all without chemicals!
What Are the Benefits of Air Sanitization and Purification?
Air sanitizers and purifiers use filters to remove particles, dust, pet dander, mold spores, and other allergens from the air. However, they do so in different ways. Air purifiers use a fan to draw in contaminated air through a filter that traps pollutants as they pass through it. The purified air is then sent back into the room, where the fan circulates it.
Air sanitizers work by spraying microscopic droplets of water or alcohol onto surfaces in your home. These droplets kill bacteria on those surfaces; when you return from your outing (and bring along any new germs), these germs are killed by these sanitizing agents before they can spread throughout your home.
When Does a Home Need a Purification System?
If you have allergies or respiratory problems, an air purifier may help you breathe easier. If your home has pets, smoke, or other odor sources, an air purifier can also help clear the air.
- Air purifiers are especially useful in homes with large open spaces that need to be ventilated regularly and efficiently. Examples include basements and attics that can trap dust particles from the rest of the house because walls or doors do not separate them.
- If you live in a polluted area (for example, near industrial factories), having an effective filtration system will remove dangerous contaminants from your indoor environment before they get inside your home—and into your lungs!
- Whether it’s because of allergies or respiratory concerns due to pollution, some people find that they need to use their air purifiers on high settings all summer long simply because their houses suffer under poor ventilation conditions year-round due to weather conditions like high humidity levels which trap moisture inside homes instead of allowing fresh air flow through them freely enough for us all survive comfortably throughout each day without being sickened by all sorts things being sucked up into our noses every time we walk through room after room full of dust mites everywhere!
The good news is with modern technology now available today; those days may soon be over, thanks to some of the latest and greatest air purifiers on the market today!
Who needs purification systems in their homes?
People with allergies or respiratory problems sometimes need purification systems in their homes. So, if you have allergies or asthma, or other respiratory problems, a purification system may be for you. If you have pets that shed fur, dander, and allergens into your home’s air supply (and who doesn’t?!), it can help keep them from making themselves home on your furniture and carpeting. But don’t get too attached to any one pet—a cleaner will also help eliminate smoke from secondhand cigarette smoke and dust mites that thrive in our homes.
You can even use them for smokers: An air purifier with HEPA filters will capture all those nasty chemicals before they settle into the fabric of couches or upholstered chairs.
