Air Purifiers work by removing the polluting agents, like allergens, toxins and pollutants from the air, and also by sanitizing the air. This is especially essential for households with vulnerable family members. You then would wonder about the difference between a filter and an Air Purifier.

But before we talk about Air Purifiers, you should know about the Polluting Agents present in the air.
The Air outside of your home contains loads of polluting agents, but it is the air inside your home that you should be concerned about. With allergens, molds, bacteria, dander, toxins and other fumes that you might be unaware about, your household might be more contaminated then the air outside. Like stated before, these contaminant might not be harmful to an average health individual, but with the vulnerable elderly, and children, these contaminations, might lead to respiratory diseases.
Those substances that might create an adverse immune response, like asthma, or allergy is known as an allergen. This may be caused by pollens, dander, dust etc. Purifiers with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter is the best known filter to trap these allergens.
