Do Air Purifiers Help With Allergies and Asthma?

Are you worried about airborne allergens in your home, or finding a way to relieve asthma symptoms? Many people seek out solutions that will help them feel better and control their symptoms. Air purifiers can be an effective and efficient solution for improving air quality indoors. Not only do they help to reduce dust, pet hair, smoke, mold spores and more from penetrating the air that you breathe but they also help with allergies and asthmatic conditions! In this blog post, we’ll cover the facts on whether air purifiers are truly beneficial for fighting off allergies and helping people who suffer from asthma. 

How air purifiers work:

Air purifiers work by using filters to remove particles from the air. The filters trap dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen, mold spores, and other allergens that can cause flare-ups or worsen symptoms of allergies and asthma. These devices scrub the indoor air so it’s free of these contaminants and allergens.

So yes, air purifiers are great at purifying the air and controlling environmental allergies. Reducing these triggers can help reduce allergy symptoms such as itchy eyes and stuffy or even runny noses. So there are portable air purifiers that mainly attract airborne particles that are near the device, which means you may end up needing an air purifier in multiple rooms of your home. Well that doesn’t have to be the case. The alternative to the portable system is a whole-home filtration system that improves the air in your entire home and helps destroy up to 99% of surface and airborne contaminants. Depending on the type of air purifier you choose, some also contain an ionizer to emit ions into the air that attract particles like a magnet so they settle into the filter more easily. 

So which air purifier should I buy?:

The one tried and tested by us is the Air Scrubber by Aerus. These air scrubbers can handle even the tiniest of particles. The ActivePure technology in these air scrubbers uses high-intensity UVC light and a catalytic process to produce scrubber ions and hydroperoxides that inactivate contaminants on surface and in the air. ActivePure is safe for both humans and pets and is used in homes across the world. This technology works 24/7 to protect your home from contaminants and allergens. This system is installed by a professional directly to your existing HVAC ductwork. Don’t forget that although you may have an air purification system installed in your home, you should continue taking measures such as keeping windows closed especially during pollen season, vacuuming every other day, and washing your bedding and clothes in warm water. Installing an Aerus air scrubber in your home, work, and beyond could improve your quality of life.
