Ozone is a gas that is found in the earth’s upper atmosphere. The ozone layer protects us from harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun, but what about when it comes to your home?
Some purifiers emit ozone at levels that are too high for safe use indoors. This post will discuss which air purifiers emit ozone and the consequences of using an air purifier that emits ozone.
Which air purifier produce ozone?
Air purifiers that produce ozone include the some Honeywell purifiers and others that emit ozone by charging particles and releasing them into the air. And sometimes ozone generator are rebranded into air cleaners while being too dangerous for home use. Overall, there too many of them on the market today to list all here.
The major health hazard of using an air purifier with these models is increased risk for asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues. While some people may not notice any symptoms at all from exposure to ozone-emitting devices, it can still cause a myriad of problems over time as your body gets used to its effects on you.
In addition to harming human health by emitting high levels of ozone into indoor environments (which are also known as man-made or unventilated spaces), there are potential ecological consequences when considering that many household appliances emit this gas during use.
What Air Purifiers Do Not Emit Ozone
In comparison, there are air purifiers that do not emit ozone. These models use a different process to clean the air instead of using high levels of ozone-producing particles.
They also use pre-filters and HEPA/Carbon filters as the way to prevent the release of any harmful particles into the air while they are very effective at cleaning air.
These models include:
-The Nuwave Oxypure Air Purifier (REVIEW), which is an ozone free purification system that claims to use a 99% efficient true HEPA filter and Carbon pre-filter in order to remove airborne bacteria, virus, mold spores and other impurities from your indoor environment while also producing negative ions within it;
– The Winix Air Purifiers (REVIEW) with PlasmaWave Technology which reaches up to 99% efficiency on removing particle pollutants like pet dander, pollen or tobacco smoke without emitting high levels of ozone. It comes with an Auto Power feature as well as Smart sensors that clean the air by depending on its quality.
It is important to know when you are shopping for an air purifier that it emits ozone. Ozone can be hazardous, and the concentration level of this gas will vary depending on your location’s geographical factors such as temperature or elevation.
The Nuwave Oxypure Air Purifier may not have any harmful side effects due to its 99% HEPA filter and carbon pre-filter system, which removes all airborne bacteria, viruses, molds spores from your indoor environment while also not producing negative ions within it.
Alternatively, Winix Air Purifiers with PlasmaWave Technology come with Auto Power features and Smart sensors that clean the air by depending on quality without emitting high levels of ozone.
