Why You Need an Air Circulator and Purifier during Summer

edited August 2023 in Lifestyle

Finally, summer has arrived in the northern hemisphere! People are enjoying warm weather, outdoor music festivals, and other summertime activities like eating ice cream. As temperatures rise, depending on whether or not your home or office has air conditioning (A/C), you may open the windows and turn fans on to cool off, or possibly close the windows and turn the A/C on to escape the heat.

We regularly consider the temperature of the air around us, but when did you last think about the contents of the air that you breathe? Read on to discover more about air quality, and how to best circulate and purify the air in your home and office during the dog days of summer.

The air that we breathe

Wherever you are in the world, chances are that you are breathing air as you read these words. Please continue breathing as before. How is your air today? Take a breath and consider the air that you are breathing for a moment before we continue. Where does the air come from? How does it enter your home? Is it processed before you partake, or is it natural, clean air filtered by forests of trees? As you breathe in and out, how do you feel about the air that you are breathing? Does it affect your quality of life or your health?

There are several factors that affect the quality of the air you breathe. From outside, vehicle emissions, industrial pollutants, agricultural activities, and wildfires, may impact your air. Different localities are affected by different issues. Remember, too, that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from building materials and paint, as well as pollutants from cooking, cigarette smoke and radon gas can all affect the air inside. How do we address these issues? Open the window?

Running an air purifier in the summer combined with an air circulator (not just a fan) should be sufficient to remove most of the airborne pollutants and make breathing less of a (necessary) health hazard! Or, perhaps this summer, we should consider investing in a 2-in-1 air circulator and purifier?

What does an air purifier do?

Perhaps you are a skeptic, and you think that your cilia are all that’s needed to filter the air that you breathe? Air pollution is already a global health emergency, affecting millions of people worldwide. While we wait for governments to take action and tackle air pollution, one way to limit your family’s exposure to airborne pollutants is to invest in an air filter. Are air purifiers worth it? Let’s dig a little deeper and examine what they are and what they do.

Do air purifiers work?

A domestic air purifier does what it says on the tin, and is designed to improve the quality of the air inside. It filters out airborne pollutants by passing the air through specially designed filters that can trap contaminants and odors. Air purifiers in the summer are necessary, as there is often an increase in pollen, mold spores and pet dander during warmer months. An air purifier does not guarantee improved health.

Do air purifiers help with smell? 

If you share your house with a smelly dog, smoker or other animal, an air purifier for pets can help to filter out some smells. Activated carbon filters can help to trap odors and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

What does an air circulator do?

An air circulator is designed to increase the airflow and ventilation in a room. This sounds similar in many ways to a good old fan, but the primary function of a fan is to cool, whereas an air circulator increases air movement by creating directional airflow. Air circulators ensure the movement of air inside a room, and can also be used to increase the exchange of indoor and outdoor air.

What is a HEPA filter?

High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are effective ways to trap pollutants as small as 0.01 microns. If you have allergies, sensitivity to pollutants, or respiratory health problems, a HEPA filter for allergies may be a wise investment. HEPA filters can even filter out viruses including COVID-19, but should be combined with other protective measures for maximum efficacy.
