Do Bionaire Air Purifiers Actually Work?

Let’s start by discussing the difference between an air cleaner and an air purifier. Air cleaning is when harmful particles are filtered from the air utilizing a filter. An air purifier goes a step further and kills harmful bacteria, mold, and viruses. Ionic air purifiers are referred to as purifiers, they do not operate as purifiers because they do not kill harmful material.

Ionic air purifiers are popular because the science behind them makes sense and because they are energy efficient and use very little energy. It is usually unnecessary to change the air filters of ionic air purifiers; which is a great cost saving benefit. One must however weigh up the advantages of true air purifiers that go that extra mile in producing a healthy environment.

One downside of ionic air purifiers are that they cause particles to fall to the floor or to other areas of the room. Since nearly all surfaces in a room are positively charged, particles falling from the ionic air are attracted to a room’s surfaces. This results in congregations of dirt and dust around the ionic air purifier. Although removed to the air, these dirt particles can be quickly kicked up back into the atmosphere, rendering the process a little ineffective.

In 2005 research revealed that ionic air purifiers failed to clean the air properly. Furthermore, they found that an ionic air purifier could actually add harmful levels of ozone to the air. High levels of ozone are toxic and can damage the lungs and the respiratory system.

Bearing all of this in mind, what is the best solution to creating a healthy environment in your home?

Keeping a healthy living environment in your home, does depend largely on where you live, and what the climate is like.

For example, in certain climates, a humidifier can be a great boon. The Bionaire Warm Mist range of humidifiers do offer great benefits to those with skin conditions for example. A moist environment will help those with dry skin for example. A side benefit is that a humid atmosphere will also benefit some natural materials such as leather.

As you can see from the previous discussions, some serious questions have been raised about ionic air purifiers. Bionaire have been producing air purifiers for many years and have some of the best on the market. Bionaire Air Purifiers use a filtering system for removing particles from the air, which has proven to be very effective in the treatment of poor air quality.

A Bionaire Hepa Air Purifier goes another step and utilises HEPA technology to clean your air for you. For those that suffer from asthma or other allergen related conditions, this is probably the best alternative to achieving high quality air in your home. In our opinion, the Bionaire air purifiers will work better than any ionic air purifier around.
