The Fascinating History of Air Purifiers

The Fascinating History of Air Purifiers

A common misconception is that air purification is a newfangled development. Funny enough, it has been worked toward – to one degree or another – for over 200 years. Figuring out that smoke, smog, and soot make breathing difficult isn’t hard. The coughing and sputtering that they cause prompted people back in the early 1800s to find ways to protect against their effects. Advancements in technology – and increasing awareness about the dangers of less obvious forms of pollution – eventually gave rise to the precursors to the modern air purifiers that so many of us rely on these days.

IQAir – The History of Air Purifiers Starts Here

Caused by a new coronavirus, the disease was incredibly contagious and had no antiviral treatment available. The Hong Kong Hospital Authority (HKHA) needed an air purification system that would be able to remove the virus, so they began screening all the air purifiers available. Unsurprisingly, most failed to stop the spread of SARS. But HKHA selected IQAir as the manufacturer of choice for air purifiers used in rooms with suspected SARS patients. More than 150 healthcare facilities in Hong Kong ordered IQAir air purifiers to help fight the spread of the virus.

HEPA Air Purifiers & Air Cleaners

Portable HEPA filtered air purifiers and air cleaners are by far the best all around type of room air cleaning system for dust, allergy and asthma control. However there are many levels of quality in the different brands and models that are on the market. I will explain the advantages and differences.

When choosing a quality HEPA air cleaner there are a few very important things to look for.

1. Cleaning Square Footage Area and Air Exchange Rate Per Hour

Look for your HEPA air cleaner to have the highest air exchange rate per hour in any sized room or open area. Remember no air cleaner can clean through walls or clean through narrow hallways or doorways from one room into another. Note: If you place a HEPA air cleaner in a hallway between three bedrooms the air cleaner will do a wonderful job of cleaning the hallway, but it will not be able to clean the air in the adjoining bedrooms.

Each bedroom will need it ‘s own air cleaner if you desire to keep the air in your needed bedrooms clean. A quality HEPA air cleaner can clean and exchange the air through its HEPA filter up to 15 times per hour in an average sized bedroom space of 12 ‘ x 15 ‘ and do a good job of cleaning the air in an open room or areas up to 1000 square feet. If your family room is open to your living room and or kitchen area and the open space is approximately 1000 square feet or smaller a quality HEPA air cleaner will do a good job of keeping that space much cleaner. Most people choose to keep one quality HEPA air cleaner in their needed bedroom{s} and one in their family room area to cover the majority of their living space.

Don ‘t be fooled into thinking that a smaller room should have a small air cleaner! Quality HEPA air cleaners are only approximately 15 inches square by 24 inches high. The height can vary a few inches one way or another. AGAIN, you want to have the highest air exchange rate per hour in any sized room or open area! A small air cleaner will have a low air exchange rate per hour giving you an inadequate cleaning job in most cases. 

Note that the great majority of the department store and chain store HEPA air cleaners that are on the market are far inferior compared to the much higher quality air cleaners sold by air cleaner specialty businesses and they provide only a very low air exchange rate of approximately 3- 5 air exchanges per hour in a small bedroom. In a larger family room area they are completely inadequate.

Activated Carbon And Zeolite Included In HEPA Filtered Air Purifiers And Air Cleaners

Many HEPA Air Cleaners and HEPA air purifiers include a certain amount of activated carbon to absorb and remove odors and out-gassing chemicals from the indoor air environment. Some of these carbon filters are mixed with a mineral called zeolite, which does a great job of absorbing ammonia and urine odors. 

The more activated carbon and zeolite that is in the HEPA air purifier, the more out-gassing chemicals and odors that can be eliminated from your indoor air environment. Zeolite and activated carbon can remove a huge mixture of chemicals that out-gas from furniture, carpeting, paints, pesticides, household building materials and cleaning products. Most quality HEPA air cleaners will include between 31/2 and 15 pounds of activated carbon. It is important to replace the carbon as needed. The lesser the carbon the more often it should be replaced. Replacement carbon filters are normally inexpensive and easy to replace. 

Beware of low quality air cleaners that claim that they have activated carbon in them. Most of the inexpensive low quality air cleaners only use a very, very small amount of carbon dust that is impregnated into a replaceable sponge, foam or fibrous pre-filter. I can assure you that a few ounces of carbon dust will not do a good job of removing out-gassing chemicals and odors. Filters impregnated with carbon dust, is nothing more than a marketing scheme and it is all show and no go!

2. Aftermarket filter replacement costs.

An important concern when purchasing a HEPA air cleaner is to know what the future aftermarket filter replacement costs will be. Quality HEPA air cleaners may cost a bit more money up front, but most quality brands will cost you much less money in future aftermarket pre-filter, carbon filter and HEPA filter replacement costs. 

Many of the less expensive and lower quality department store and chain store HEPA air cleaners may cost you between $100 and $250.00 when you purchase them. But the yearly filter replacement cost can almost equal the cost of the unit itself. You can spend $1000 feeding filters into inexpensive lower quality HEPA air cleaners in only five years’ time. Most high quality HEPA air cleaners aftermarket filter replacements will only cost between $180.00 and $400.00 in five years time. See! You just saved $600.00 to $800.00 dollars.

3. Motor And Airflow Noise Factor

One of the most important things to look for when purchasing a HEPA air cleaner/purifier is to get a unit that is quiet so you can watch TV and sleep while it is operating. All air cleaners are loud when they are operating at high speed. This is because high speed is for quickly clearing the room. Most people operate their HEPA air cleaners around medium speed for everyday use. 

Most of the inexpensive department store and chain store HEPA air cleaners are often very loud due to the fact that they use low quality motors that are poorly balanced with bearings that wear out to make more noise. The high quality HEPA air cleaners found in air cleaner specialty businesses are more powerful and much quieter because of their high quality motors and superior airflow designs.

4. HEPA Air Cleaners And Air Purifiers With Ultraviolet Light Systems

Some HEPA air cleaners and air purifiers include ultraviolet light systems that allow them to kill mold spores, bacteria and viruses. These HEPA air cleaners are wonderful for people with mold or bacteria problems in their home or office. HEPA air cleaners with ultraviolet light systems are also important for people with mold allergies, immune system problems or people going through chemotherapy or organ transplants that cannot be exposed to viruses or bacteria. When searching for a HEPA air cleaner with an ultraviolet light system. 

It is important that the ultraviolet bulbs are non- ozone producing as ozone can be an irritant to those that have asthma or other lung conditions. Also the ultraviolet lights should be pointing into the HEPA filter ‘s intake side so they can kill any mold spores, bacteria and viruses on the HEPA filter ‘s intake surface before they can penetrate into the filter. 

It is almost worthless to have an air cleaner where the ultraviolet lights are pointing to the outside diameter of the HEPA filter because the filter may already be contaminated into its core. The only HEPA air cleaner to date on the market with the proper {Patented} ultraviolet design system is called the TRACS. TRACS stands for Total-Room-Air-Cleaning-System.
