5 Surprising Things Your Air Purifier Does
Beyond Purified Air
When we recommend an air purifier, the expectation is that it will remove impurities from the air. What comes as a surprise to some is how they discover they love their air purifiers for some of the other, lesser known benefits. We uncover 5 of these extra perks, below.
POKER NIGHT WITHOUT THE FALLOUT
Any HEPA air purifier can remove smoke from the air. In fact, it's a pretty neat trick to turn on an air purifier in a smoke-filled chamber to see the smoke disappear in a puff of, well, smoke.
Some air purifiers take it even a step further though, and can help scrub the air of the smoke's ODOR. Not only is that a neat trick, but it means that your guilty pleasure won't linger.
WHITE NOISE/PINK NOISE
If you happen to be one of those people that JUST CAN'T SLEEP with out the comforting throb of a ceiling fan or the humming from a white noise generator, then you'll love an air purifier. While air purifiers are actually great for sleep in more than one way, they can be the perfect bedroom companion is you just need the perfect background noise.
Did you know that a HEPA filter is capturing far smaller things than dust and pollen? In fact, HEPA filters can capture almost any airborne bacteria, and all but the very smallest of viruses.
An air purifier with a large bed of activated carbon can absorb formaldehyde, and there are several units available, like the AllerAir F600, that include a specialized additive that specifically targets the noxious chemical.
