What Do Air Purifiers Do and How Do They Work?
Air purifier filters clean the air you breathe by removing particles such as dust, pet allergens, odors and smoke from your home. The air that is returned to the room is much cleaner.
- Dirty air is drawn into the air purifier through the inlet grill.
- Air purifier applies its technology to capture particles or neutralize gases, bacteria and viruses.
- The clean air is distributed throughout the room.
True HEPA filters remove up to 99.97% of air particles as small as 0.3 microns.
HEPA-type filters range in percentage of particles that they remove and particle size that they capture. Most commonly, products are marketed at 99% removal of particles as small as 2 microns. While still effective, Hepa-type filters do not remove as many air particles as True Hepa filters.
How Do Humidifier Filters Work?
Humidifier filters are designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. The honeycomb design traps mineral pollutants found in water and keeps them from entering the air.
- The filters are enhanced with ARM & HAMMER™ baking soda and Antimicrobial treated.
- Improves the efficiency of the humidifier and keeps it running longer.
- The clean water is then distributed throughout the room as a clean, fine mist.
