An air purifier can either be purchased as a small portable unit for individual use or a large unit more for hospitals and other commercial buildings.
The earliest form of a purifier used by the general public dates back to 1830 when a guy named Charles Anthony Deane built a device consisting of a copper helmet with an attached flexible collar. A hose was attached to the helmet to bring in air. A short pipe pushed air out of the device.
Roughly 30 years later, John Stenhouse made an addition to Deane’s invention. He added wood charcoal properties to create the first respirator. Then in 1950 HEPA filters were considered to be the best purifiers on the market.
What are some of the benefits of installing a purifier at home?
There are a number of benefits to having a purifier at your home. Those who own pets understand the troubles of dealing with loose pet hair lying around the house. During the warmer months of the year animals that shed are going to be leaving hairs everywhere they go. Also, dogs or cats that primarily live outside will bring in all kinds of dirt, bugs, grass, and bacteria, harmful to the human race. Vacuuming and sweeping will not always do the job. A quality air purifier can get rid of all the harmful pollutants in a room in as little as two hours. The better the air filter, the cleaner the room will be. Have you ever had to leave a friends house early or make up an excuse to not go to someone’s house because you know it is always dirty? Do not worry, you are not alone. It is embarrassing to have to step out of a friend or family members house because they do not have the proper purifier equipment.
During the spring months, pollen covers just about anything and everything it touches. Pollen can cause irritation to the eyes or other parts of the face and lead to asthma attacks later in life. Dust mites living in a home or building can cause allergies. Air purifiers can eliminate around 99% of dust, pollen, and other allergens.
If you live by someone that has a smelly room or cooks foods that leave a bad smell, having an air purifier can help maintain clean air. Curry and spices can be hard to get rid off. Onion odor will stay in the air long after being cooked.
