Breathe Easier: Air Purifier Myths Debunked

In recent years, demand for air purifiers has increased as people realise the importance of clean indoor air. However, with this surge in popularity, misconceptions about air purifiers have also appeared. If you are unsure about buying an air purifier, let us help you to separate fact from fiction by addressing common air purifier myths. 

Myth 1: Air purifiers only benefit those with asthma or allergies 

False: It’s true that air purifiers can help asthma/allergy sufferers, but they can also benefit everyone in the family. Air Purifiers can reduce exposure to bacteria, viruses, and other harmful particles, helping to shield everyone in the home from winter respiratory illnesses.  

Myth 2: All air purifiers produce ozone 

False: While many types of air purifiers emit ozone, some modern units are designed to be ozone-free. Ozone can be harmful to babies’ lungs and respiratory system, so choose the ClevaPure HEPA 13 Air Purifier which is 100% ozone-free and safe for use in the nursery. 

Myth 3: Air purifiers remove all indoor pollutants 

False: While air purifiers are effective at removing many pollutants like dust, pollen, and pet dander, they may not eliminate all indoor contaminants. However, the ClevaPure HEPA 13 Air Purifier’s medical-grade filter comes very close, removing 99.95% of airborne allergens, particles & odours: including dust mites, mould spores, bacteria, viruses, smoke and unpleasant odours. 

Myth 4: Air purifiers are noisy  

False: Advances in technology have led to the development of quieter air purifiers. The ClevaPure Air Purifier is ‘whisper quiet’ for the nursery at an average 30db, equivalent to being as quiet as a library. 

Myth 5: Air purifiers are a substitute for regular cleaning 

False: Air purifiers are a valuable addition to indoor air quality management but are not a substitute for routine cleaning. This is because air purifiers can only remove dust and other particles when they are airborne.  Dusting, vacuuming, and maintaining cleanliness in your home are still crucial to minimize the buildup of allergens and particles. Air purifiers work best when used in conjunction with regular cleaning practices. 

Myth 6: Air purifiers are costly to run 

False: While the initial investment in an air purifier may seem significant, the operating costs are minimal. The ClevaPure Air Purifier is low in energy consumption, running at a max of 23 watts. Less than your standard light bulb! 

By debunking these common myths, we hope that we have helped to allay any misgivings you might have had about Air Purifiers. The ClevaPure HEPA 13 Air Purifier is the ideal choice for your home so protect your family and give them the gift of clean air today. That way, you too can breathe easier.
