Air Treatment FAQs

Does an air purifier work?

Yes, air purifiers can be effective in improving indoor air quality by removing harmful particles and pollutants from the air.

Air purifiers work by using a combination of filters and technologies, such as HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters and activated carbon filters to capture and eliminate airborne particles, such as dust, allergens, mold spores, pet dander, and some are proven to filter bacteria and viruses.

Why is a humidifier used?

A humidifier is used to add moisture to the air in a room.

Dry indoor air can lead to a variety of problems, including dry skin, dry eyes, and throat irritation.

It can also aggravate respiratory conditions such as allergies or asthma, as dry air can irritate the nasal passages and make it harder to breathe.

What is better for allergies humidifier or air purifier?

Both humidifiers and air purifiers can be helpful for people with allergies, but they work in different ways and have different benefits.

Humidifiers add moisture to the air, which can soothe dry nasal passages and reduce irritation in the throat and lungs. This can be especially helpful for people with allergies that cause dry or irritated nasal passages, like hay fever.

But if the air is already humid, using a humidifier can actually make allergy symptoms worse by increasing mold and dust mite growth.

Air purifiers, on the other hand, work to remove allergens from the air, such as dust, pollen, and pet dander. They use filters or other mechanisms to trap these particles and prevent them from circulating in the air.

Is an air purifier the same as a humidifier?

No, an air purifier is not the same as a humidifier.

While both devices are designed to improve air quality, they work in different ways and serve different purposes.

An air purifier is designed to remove pollutants and other contaminants from the air, such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and smoke.

A humidifier, on the other hand, is designed to add moisture to the air to combat dryness.

Can you use an air purifier and humidifier together?

Yes, you can use an air purifier and a humidifier together in the same room.

In fact, using both devices together can help to create a comfortable and healthier indoor environment. An air purifier can help to remove pollutants and contaminants from the air, while a humidifier can add moisture to the air to combat dryness.

If you have dry as well as polluted air in your home, then an air purifier with a humidification function is a good option. These all-in-one machines, such as the Dyson Purifier Humidify+Cool™, clean the air with filters and humidify it before blowing it back into the room.
