Some people might wonder do they need an air purifier at their home. My personal answer is yes. Air purifier doesn’t only clean your air. It can do more than that. If you read the newspapers or watch it on your television, the air pollution rate is getting worse and there is no way it will come down fast.

If you still think that you are comfortable only by using your air conditioner, you can think again. An air conditioner only can make the air feel cold and it comforts you during hot weather. It does not remove smells and bacteria in the air. Try to turn it off for a while. You can notice how awful the smell is in your house.

Without further delay, here is our Top 5 Reasons On Why You Should Buy Air Purifier:

1. To remove dust particles and other allergen triggers

Dust may be or may be not being seen on the air. If you are dusting your cabinets and furniture, you might see dust flying everywhere. The dusts that you can see with your naked eyes are quite large in size. What about the one that you cannot see with your naked eyes? You will still inhale them and it will reach your lungs.

This not only concern dusts but also pet dander, mold spores and plant pollens that can cause allergens. Without realizing, all those stuff is in the air right now in your house. Sounds terrifying right? But that is the fact that we should accept.

Air purifier can trap all those air pollutants and release clean air into your house. That is because air purifier use air filter that can trap those nasty stuff. You can rest assured that the air that you inhale is as clean as new.

2. Reduce odors

In a common household, we can smell about anything in the house from the food that you cook to the smell of paint of your house. What about odors from human body? That’s sounds and smells terrible indeed. That is because human also can attract bacteria that can cause awful odors.

Don’t forget bad habits such as smoking and leaving dirty laundry all over the house. Do you want your kids be the second hand smoker? If you have bad habits like smoking, don’t drag your kids into it. Don’t let them fall sick because of you.

With air purifier, you can reduce all the odors and smoke to the extent that you almost can’t smell it anymore. Your home will be odorless from bad odors. You don’t have to feel ashamed anymore when guests are coming.

3. Kills bacteria, virus and germs

There are some virus and bacteria that can spread through the air such as E.coli and streptococcus that will make you sick. Air purifier can kill these types of viruses and prevent them from spreading or prevent them from your home.

Most air purifier has UV lights. These UV lights can damage the bacteria’s DNA and destroy them completely which means the bacteria is killed.

4. Use less power

We cannot say that using air conditioner in your home is a bad idea. We still love air conditioners and it is really useful during very hot weather. It is hard to sleep at night when you are drowning in your own sweat.

But by comparing an air conditioner with an air purifier, air purifier consumes much less power. Even though that air purifier does not produce cold air, it is also important to the household for health benefits. Users must know that both items have its use and purpose. In this case, air purifier is good for health benefits.

5. Easy to maintain

Air purifier is very easy to maintain. As long as the filter is in good shape, you don’t have to replace them. All you have to do is open the air purifier, take out the filter and you can begin to clean them. However, you need the manual to do this. Some air purifier’s filter can be wash with water and some you cannot get it wet.

In case you lost the manual on how to clean the filter, you can use the vacuum cleaner to remove the dust and stain on the filter.

In this electronic and gadget era, it is understandable that most people know what is an air purifier. Most people also think that an air purifier is a must-have tools in their household especially those who live in the urban and city area where air is not clean. Air pollution is very high in the city. Even the air inside a house is not that clean and breathable.

In this article, you will not find any ‘extreme’ language about air purifier and I don’t think that anyone would even care if I write about it. What I want to tell you are the most important part on what is an air purifier really is and what it does.

An air purifier is a device that cleans the air inside your home. Now, another question, why do you need to clean the air inside your home? It is because the air inside your house is not clean and polluted. People with allergies and asthmatic need clean air to breath and the air purifier will purify the air so it will be safe to breathe on.

The air inside your home is not as clean as you think. It may contain dust, pet hair, smells, cigarette smoke, germs and even bacteria. That is why people will get allergies even at their own house, by breathing. Air purifier can filter those nasty things in the air.

How air purifier works

Air purifier works by sucking air inside a room in your house, filtered it and release it back for you to breath. So, all the nasty things in the air are caught up inside the air purifier using its filter and the air it releases back will be clean and fresh.

However, the filter alone will only remove pollutants and not including germs, viruses and bacteria. To kill bacteria, the air purifier is also equipped with UV light which can kill bacteria in the air.

Air purifier maintenance

The only thing that will need to be replaced is the filter. Filter price is according to the material of the filter and the lifespan. A good filter can cost up to a few hundred dollars. But you don’t have to worry about that. The filter will only be replaced after a few years.

Eventually, the air purifier filter will get dirty. Some air purifier filter can be washed and some can only be clean using a vacuum cleaner. You will need to know how to open up the air purifier to do this. If you order an air purifier, don’t throw the manual away. You will need it later for maintenance.


Having an air purifier at home is a good choice because it can help you clean the dust and any other particles in the air without having to use the vacuum or feather duster anymore. You just turn the switch on and relax.

One of the best functions of an air purifier is the smell neutralizer. No matter what you cook at the kitchen, the smell will go away without you realizing it. Not just smell but also cigarette smoke that can harm your children and other non-smokers in the same house. Get one today for a good refreshing air.
