Even if you don’t have allergies yourself, you probably know someone who does... It’s really nuance knowing that every spring and/or summer, during the pollination period you will have to spend time indoors, and even then won’t stay protected from the stuffed or running nose, sneezing, eyes watering and other pollen allergy reactions. Can Air Purifier help you avoid the reactions while being at home? Let’s see what studies say…
What are allergies?
Many definitions can be found on what are allergies, and it’s mostly matter of interpreting the same thing – allergies are body’s immune system “overreacting” a substance. We will offer Cleveland Clinic’s definition: Allergies are your body’s reaction to a normally harmless substance such as pollen, molds, animal dander, latex, certain foods and insect stings. They are your body’s reaction to a substance it views as a harmful “invader.”
Can Air Purifier help? - Yes.
It’s a straight up short and correct answer. Yes, any decent Air Purifier should help improve the conditions of your home at least a little bit so that you can feel better. This is confirmed by multiple studies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), whose 2018. study found that using a HEPA air purifier in the bedroom improved people’s allergic rhinitis symptoms by reducing the concentration of particulate matter and house dust mites in the air.
How do Air Purifiers work? How they deal with the allergens? The mechanism is fairly simple…or at least it is simple to explain it. Air purifiers circle the air from the room and in that process take in “dirty” air in which allergens float and expel the allergens-free clean air. But how they clean the air? They do this by directing the air through a built-in filter (in most cases, Air Purifiers use High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters) that can catch the harmful airborne particles mentioned earlier and thus remove them from your indoor environment (HEPA filter removes 99.97 percent of particulate matter smaller than 0.3 microns). In general, when passed through the filter several times, most Air Purifiers are able to catch both small and large particles and free your air of up to 95-97% of all harmful substances (allergens, dust, and even odors…).
