9 Myths about Air Purifiers
1. I live in an ecologically clean environment. I do not need an air purifier.Some people do not pay attention to the problem of polluted air and water. They do not even think that such problem really exists.
However according to the latest researches and experiments which were made by World Health Organization (WHO) in the majority of cities with population of more than 100000 people the level of air and water pollution is above possible norms and standards. Researches have taken place in 91 countries and 1100 cities all over the world. The situation has shown that there is a real danger for humans’ health. Moreover about 2000000 people annually die because of diseases caused by air and water pollution.
The main danger comes from micro particles which are called PM10 due to their microscopic diameter. They are so small that do not find it difficult to get to our lungs together with air and then in blood. They often turn out to be the main reason of such diseases as asthma, lung cancer and many others. That is why breathing such air can result in problems with our health.
WHO has worked out and presented a number of recommendations which are connected with air quality. Concentration of PM10 should not be higher than 20 mcg/m3 (microgram per cubic meter). However in some regions this level is higher than 300 mcg/m3. These results show catastrophic pollution of air.
Results of WHO researches were the following:
- Automobiles and electric power stations as the sources of fuel burning are the main reasons of air pollution.
- Only few living areas have appropriate level of PM10. The rest of cities and towns have polluted area up to 15 times higher in comparison with appropriate norms.
- More than 1 340 000 people died in 2008 because of polluted air. If all WHO recommendations were taken into consideration at that period, more than 1 090 000 people would be still alive. All specialists and heads of WHO departments all over the world are sure that air pollution is one of the most important ecological problems which need urgent solutions.

2. Purifiers that use filters are the bestSome people mistakenly think that evolution of air cleaning ends on filtration systems. They simply do not know the fact that every HEPA filter is made of porous material with cells from 1 to 5 microns. Such air filters simply can’t hold particles with a smaller size. At the same time particles from 0.1 to 1 micron are the most harmful for our health. This dust practically has no weight. That is why it stays in the air for a long period of time. As a result filters are not able to deal with such dust which leads to different breathing and other kinds of diseases. Moreover filtration systems need permanent cleaning and additional care. Otherwise they will not be efficient after a certain period of usage.
Experts say that in some cases filters can be even harmful for our health as they break large particles into smaller ones which are not able to leave breathing air and can lead to problems with health and lungs.
Another disadvantage of filter systems is the fact that they are not able to deal with viruses and bacteria. Filter itself can become a source of fungi and mold. At the same time HEPA filters are absolutely hopeless when it comes to poisonous chemical substances. In addition they are not able to cope with disinfection of surfaces in the room.
Coverage area is also very small. Filters are able to clean up to 100 square feet of space. HEPA filter can be used only in small rooms.
Filtration systems are rather big. Their size does not allow user to install it whenever he/she wants. It takes a lot of space in the room. The more coverage area of filter, the more size it has. Of course, some units have very powerful and efficient fans. On the other hand it results in enormous energy costs. Filtration systems are expensive and need additional care and servicing.
Summing up, it is necessary to say that air filters can be harmful rather than useful for our health. However there is a perfect alternative to such cleaners.

3. Ionizing is harmful for our healthAnother myth is that ionizing can do harm to our health. This is not true. Ionizing process can never do any harm.
It is commonly known that all molecules keep particular electric charge. The process of electric charge occurrence is called ionizing. Air ions can be negatively or positively charged. For example, 1 ccm of air in countryside can contain up to 1000 air ions. It means that air is fresh and clean.
On the other hand the situation is different in large cities and metropolises. The concentration of air ions is much lower. That is why lots of breathing diseases and other health problems occur more often in cities if to compare with country sides and villages. In other words people suffer from lack of air ions.
Numerous experiments and researches have proved that negatively charged ions are able to help people relax and even get rid of stress and tiredness. They can give energy and ability to gain strength. At the same time they strengthen immunity and decrease the risk of occurring different diseases.
Ionized air has proved to be a good preventive health care. If we speak about “alive” air we consider that it is full of negatively charged ions. They are equal to those which are contained in air high in the mountains.
Experiments have also proved that air ions are able to remove dust which air contains. Air ionizer can be used for both home and commercial needs. Some models are efficient enough to be installed in large factories and warehouses while others are perfect for small rooms such as kitchen or toilet.
They say that too large amount of ions can do harm. However this is also not true. Our organism is able to control the amount of oxygen with the help of hemoglobin.
4. Ionizing leads to accumulation of dust on the floorThis opinion is also false as 99% of all dust is already lying on the floor while only 1% is in the air. This 1% of dust is the most harmful for our health due to its low weight. Sometimes it results in occurring different allergic reactions and other problems with breathing. At the same time ionizing is able to clear your breathing area from all harmful substances.
5. Ozone can do harm to our healthAnother myth about ozone generator is the fact that ozone can be dangerous for our health.
Ozone is also known as active oxygen and it is considered to be the strongest natural oxidant. Ozone molecules live less than 1 second. However this time is more than enough for them to contact other substances and neutralize them at short notice creating ordinary oxygen (O2).
Of course, in large amounts ozone can have a negative effect on our health. On the other hand small dosages of active oxygen can be rather useful for our organism. All our products contain necessary amount of ozone in order to create healthy environment which will also be ecofriendly. There is no any harm for your health.
Apart from other ozone machines which operate on the basics of high temperature technologies, our products use innovative technology of active oxygen generation by cold plasma method. It lets our air cleaners produce ozone without nitrogen oxides that are very dangerous.

8. Air conditioners are better than air purifiersAir conditioning is rather efficient when it comes to creating necessary microclimate in the room. However modern models of A/C are based on filtration system. If we go back to myth #2, we will remember that filters can sometimes be rather harmful and inefficient. They are not able to clean air in a proper way and eliminate harmful substances, mold and bad smell. A/C just circulates dirty air.
You need a special equipment in case you want healthy environment be at home or in your office. And you can purchase such products in our webstore.
9. Air purifiers do not eliminate allergensAllergy is a form of hypersensitivity of immune system. This is a common problem for the majority of people which sometimes can be rather irritating. Dust is the most common reason for occurring allergic reactions. At the same time we should also mention pet dander, pollen and various toxic compounds as main sources of such unpleasant problem.
Filtrations systems are not able to provide people with necessary level of protection. We have already spoken about while describing the second myth about air purifiers.
However we are happy to offer you an alternative way that will let you forget about this problem once and for all.
