Air ionizers clean the air by sending molecular particles into the room. Those particles, also known as ions, attach to oxygen in the air to create a negative charge. Once it becomes a negative ion (or anion), the molecule attaches itself to pollen, dander, dust and odor to create a cluster. The ionizer then pulls the cluster into an air filter, which can be cleaned or replaced as needed.
An ionizing air purifier can greatly improve the air quality in your home! A house attracts dust, pollen and other allergens in a variety of ways. High humidity levels increase bacterial growth in the home, and any room in the house can have a variety of unpleasant odors. Air ionizers can remove microbes such as mold spores, viruses and germs from the air. Ionic air cleaners act as air fresheners, neutralizing odors from pets, cigarettes and even cooking smells to create a cleaner home environment.
Ionizers use a small amount of power and run quietly, so they work in any room in the house. You can choose between ionic air purifiers that sit on the floor and those that are compact enough to be stored on a counter or shelf. Before you purchase an ionizer, measure the square footage of the room. Air ionizers have the ability to clean air in a specific amount of square footage. Clean your ionic purifier regularly to keep it performing at its best.
