Why You Need an Air Purifier if You Have Pets or Children

Looking for the best air purifier for pets and clearing pet dander? It’s important to get one that will be efficient, particularly if you have children. Read this TaoTronics blog to find out more about our Air Purifier selection and why you need one in your home today.

Air pollution is becoming an increasingly important issue. Over the past year alone, fires have raged across the US, Australia, and beyond, causing city-dwellers to keep their windows shut and wear face masks to protect themselves from smoke particles even before Coronavirus became a pandemic. Vehicle emissions are still a huge issue affecting the lungs of millions of people, while factory fumes are even deadlier.

This is a global issue, affecting young and old. And it affects everyone as soon as you step outside.

On top of this, a major worry is when pollutants and irritants infiltrate your home. This is a big issue but with increasing danger, if you have allergies, a condition that affects your lungs, or if you have young children. Irritants don’t have to be emissions, as well – they can be as simple as pet dander, which you still need an air purifier for.

There’s a simple solution to keeping the air in your home as pure as possible, even when you can’t control what’s happening outside. And it costs as little as forty dollars.

Placing an air purifier in your home can tackle the main irritants, including pet dander, dust, and pollution from external sources. Read on to learn more about Air Purifiers, and where you can find the perfect device for your home.

How do Air Purifiers Work?

Air purifiers aren’t particularly complex to explain, even though they work wonders to purify the air.

Your device works quickly to take any pollutants out of the air – doing the opposite job of a diffuser, which will put particles (like from essential oils) out into the air around it. The air goes in and is swept along the filters, which is said to capture tiny particles up to 0.01 micron long if you have a HEPA filter. More on this filter below!

Once the pollutants and irritants are taken out of the air and it’s considered clean, the clean air is pushed back into the room. It can then circulate – and probably pick up some more pet dander before it is filtered again!

Why Do You Need a HEPA Filter?

HEPA filters are widely considered the most effective on the market. They can capture incredibly small particles, meaning your air is more likely to be pure once it has made its way through the device. They are also long-lasting, able to hold around a year’s worth of particles before they need replacing.

The ability to capture smaller particles is important because it makes them even more effective at capturing larger particles, like pet dander that is usually around 5 to 10 microns. Whether you have a dog, a cat, or even a guinea pig, the HEPA filter will likely be able to capture any hair or skin that they shed into the air.

There is currently a debate about if a HEPA filter can help protect against Coronavirus by filtering it out of the air. It is still unclear and you should take all necessary precautions alongside using an air purifier, like wearing a face mask if possible.

How often should I change the HEPA Filter?

Your machine will tell you when the filter needs changing. Usually, this happens every 12-months or so.
