Do air purifiers work?

May is National Clean Air Month, an invitation to think about the air we breathe and its impact on our lives. If you’ve been wanting to take control of the air quality in your own home, chances are you’ve considered getting an air purifier. But do these systems actually work?

It’s a fair question to ask — unlike checking for dirty plates after running the dishwasher, you usually can’t see, with the naked eye, whether an air purifier is doing a thorough job. However, with the aid of technology, it is clear that large amounts of common airborne particles like pollen and mold spores can be filtered out of your home’s air with the right air purification setup. Here’s how to find an air purifier that will work for you:

How large is the space you want to purify?

The efficiency of any air purification system will largely depend on the room you use it in. Many systems designed for household use excel in smaller rooms. For example, the Scentsy Air Purifier is ideal for spaces up to 200 sq. ft., like nurseries, bedrooms and home offices.

When should you run an air purifier?

The Scentsy Air Purifier utilizes a replaceable HEPA H13 filter capable of removing up to 99.95% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns — far smaller than the human eye can see. When dealing with such microscopic particles, it can be hard to tell when your air needs to be cleaned. For this reason, you should consider purification systems capable of detecting the particles that your eyes alone cannot. The Scentsy Air Purifier includes an air quality indicator light to let you know when particles are detected. The Scentsy Air Purifier even features Auto mode, allowing the Scentsy Air Purifier to automatically switch to “High” mode when particles are detected.

What features are you looking for?

Air purifier systems can do more than just remove particles from the air you breathe. For example, if you want to add great fragrance to your purified air, Scentsy has you covered! Utilizing the power of Scentsy Pods, the Scentsy Air Purifier lets you enjoy instant home fragrance as the Purifier filters your air!
