You probably don’t need to use an air purifier all the time. However, it can be beneficial if you live in an area with poor air quality or suffer from allergies. Air purifiers can help to remove harmful particles from the air, making it easier to breathe. Also, if you have asthma or other respiratory problems, using an air purifier may help to relieve your symptoms.
Can I always keep the air purifier on?
An air purifier is designed to clean the air in your home or office. The device pulls in contaminated air, filters out the pollutants and recirculates the clean air back into the room. Air purifiers can remove a variety of contaminants from the air, including dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander and smoke particles.
While an air purifier can improve indoor air quality, there are some potential downsides to operating the device 24 hours a day. One concern is that running an air purifier constantly can increase your energy bills. Another consideration is that some types of air purifiers produce ozone as a by-product of the filtration process. When ozone concentrations rise above 0.05 parts per million, it can cause respiratory irritation.
If you have concerns about indoor air quality, talk to your doctor or an allergist. They can help you determine if an air purifier is right for you and make recommendations about which type of device to use.
In any case, your air purifier will not crash so quickly if you use it all the time. However, we do recommend that you take breaks in between to allow the filter to air out and prevent it from getting too dirty.
Can you leave window open with air purifier?
When using an air purifier it is important to understand that the unit will not work effectively if the doors and windows are left open. Air purifiers work best when used in enclosed spaces. It is therefore recommended that you close all doors and windows before turning on the unit.
Once the unit is turned on, it will begin to clean the air within the room. However, if doors and windows are left open, outside air will enter the room and reduce the effectiveness of the unit. It is sufficient to leave the windows open once or twice a day for a short period of time to allow the stuffy air within the room to escape. Then, you may close the windows and switch on the air purifier.
