How do they work

Air purifiers are designed to quickly clean indoor air. They remove unwanted and potentially harmful airborne particles like dust, pollen, bacteria mould, VOCs and other pollutants. Using advanced filtration systems, air purifiers work by drawing in air, passing it through multiple filters, and then releasing clean, purified air back into your space. The result? A significant reduction in allergens, odours, and airborne contaminants. Buying an air purifier not only ensures a healthier living environment but also promotes better respiratory health and a reduction in allergy symptoms.  

Why are they useful to own?

While your indoor air might look clean, the air inside our homes and businesses can be significantly more polluted than you might realise. In fact, a study conducted by the EPA's Office of Research and Development :found levels of about a dozen common organic pollutants (VOCs) to be 2 to 5 times higher inside homes than outside, regardless of whether the homes were located in rural or highly industrial areas"*. This isn't just a statistic, it's a reality that most of us live with without even knowing it. 

*Reference to EPA's study

Common indoor pollutants

As mentioned above, an air purifier can remove a multitude of pollutants from indoor air. Below we outline what the most commonly found pollutants are inside Australian homes and workplaces.

PM2.5 (Fine Particles)

  • Combustion Particles: Produced from burning candles, cooking, fireplaces, and stoves.
  • Aerosols: From personal care products like hairsprays and deodorants.
  • Ultrafine Dust: Often originating from outdoor pollution that enters the home.
  • Vehicle Emissions: From nearby roads or attached enclosed garages.
  • Biological Particles: Such as mould spores, bacteria, and viruses.
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): Emitted by a wide array of products, including the paint on your walls, furniture, carpets and flooring, cabinetry, even your cleaning products.  VOCs are often undetectable and can lead to health issues and allergy flair ups.
  • Tobacco Smoke: Fine particles from smoking cigarettes, cigars, or pipes.
  • Odors: From cooking smells to pet odors and smoke, these can make indoor environments unpleasant.

PM10 (Larger Particles):

  • Dust: From activities like sweeping, vacuuming, or even movement within the home.
  • Pollen: From plants, which can be brought indoors from open windows or on clothing.
  • Pet Dander: Tiny flecks of skin shed by cats, dogs, birds, and other animals with fur or feathers.
  • Mould: Larger mold spores can fall into the PM10 category.
  • Dust Mites: And their waste products, which are common in bedding, upholstered furniture, and carpets.
  • Construction Materials: Dust and by-products from construction or renovation activities, both inside the home or from nearby building sites.
  • Agricultural Activities: In areas near farmlands, particles from fertalising, plowing, or burning can enter homes.

Air Purifiers

Technology

Air purifiers work on a simple yet effective principle. They draw in polluted air, process it through multiple layers of filters, and release clean, purified air back into the environment. As they continuously cycle the air through their filters, they quickly remove airborne particles, making indoor air quality, clean and fresh.

The technology behind these devices has evolved over the years, incorporating advanced features like smart sensors, auto-adjusting modes, air quality indicators and microorganism neutralising systems to ensure optimal performance and maximum air cleaning efficiency.

Do you need one?

Owning an Air purifier offers a wide range of advantages for individuals and families, making them a very worthwhile product to own. Some of the key benefits include:

Allergy Relief

Air purifiers eliminate common allergens like dust, pollen, and pet dander, which are typical triggers for allergy flare-ups. They provide fast, real-time relief by quickly removing these allergens and maintaining a constant level of air purity 24/7. If you or someone in your home suffers from allergies, an air purifier is an excellent way to help reduce and relieve allergy symptoms indoors.

Asthma Management

By reducing airborne irritants and pollutants, they can help manage and even prevent asthma symptoms from occurring. In fact, many of our models have been awarded the National Asthma Council of Australia's "Sensitive Choice" badge of approval, making them some of the best air purifiers for asthma sufferers.

Odour Elimination

Effectively eliminate and neutralise unwanted odours originating from sources like pets, cooking, bushfires, and tobacco smoke. By enhancing your overall indoor air quality, air purifiers promote a fresh, clean environment.

VOC Removal

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemical gases released by a variety of items commonly found in homes all around Australia. Typical VOC sources found in Australian homes include wall and ceiling paint, tile adhesives and sealants, cabinetry adhesives, floor covering and furnishing dyes, as well as cleaning products and air fresheners. Air purifiers are the most efficient and effective way to reduce VOCs from indoor air.

Protection from Illness

Importantly, they can help minimise the spread of airborne illnesses by capturing bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. This is especially beneficial for homes with infants or young children and for the elderly who may have weaker immune systems.

Our range

At Healthy Habitats, we offer a wide range of air purifiers from Australia’s leading brands. Every model we sell has been independently tested by approved bodies to ensure they meet Australia’s strict standards. Our brands include:

How do you choose the right one?

How to choose an air purifier

With an abundance of makes and models available in Australia, finding the right one can be challenging. To help with your decision-making process, we have listed below some key factors to consider when buying an air purifier.

Room Size Compatibility

Ensure you select an air purifier designed for the room size you'll be using it in. While it is always fine to opt for a machine rated higher than your room's size, it is not recommended to use one rated lower. Choosing an underpowered unit will result in inefficient air cleaning, leaving you with subpar indoor air quality. Our product listings include the recommended room size for each air purifier.

Filtration Technology

Air purifiers utilise various types of filters to purify the wide range of pollutants found in indoor air. These include:

  • Pre-filter: This washable filter traps larger particles such as hair and dust.
  • HEPA filter: This filter captures 99.97% of airborne particles down to 0.3 microns.
  • Activated Carbon filter: This filter helps remove VOCs and odours.

Additionally, some air purifiers also include Ionisation and UV-C light technology that eradicates bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms inside the filters and in the surrounding air.

Noise Level Consideration

Thankfully off our range are designed to be quiet, but if noise is a concern, opt for a model with a dedicated sleep mode. This feature sets the fan speed to the lowest setting for ultra-quiet operation and turns off the display lights. Sleep mode availability will be listed in the product description.

Energy Efficiency

As well as being quiet, our range are impressively energy-efficient devices that work to clean indoor air 24/7 while using very little electricity. It's worth noting that the difference in power consumption between smaller and larger units is often quite minimal. So, if you are tempted to buy a smaller model due to fearing a high power bill, you may not have to. We display each model's power consumption on the relevant product page. If you would like us to estimate a particular model's yearly running costs, get in touch, and we're always happy to help.

Important Note: While all of our brands and models are supplied with a True HEPA filter with a minimum grade of H12, this isn't the case for all air purifiers for sale in Australia.

Models for specific concerns

Depending on your needs, you may want to choose a model that is specifically designed to address certain concerns. Some of these include:

  2. Assessing Effectiveness of HEPA Air Purifiers for Indoor Air Quality:
    • Summary: Air purifiers equipped with High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, known to remove 99.97% of particles (≥0.3μm in diameter), are found to be an effective technology in improving indoor air quality, especially in urban Indian residences.
    • Read the full study here.
  3. Enhancing Indoor Air Quality – The Air Filter Advantage:
    • Summary: The World Health Organization (WHO) states that 3.8 million premature deaths annually are attributed to exposure to household air pollution. The use of air cleaners and filters is suggested as a strategy to improve indoor air quality.
    • Read the full study here.
  4. Effects of Air Purifier on Indoor Environment and Respiratory System:
    • Summary: Ambient air contains varying sizes of particulate matter (PM). Fine PM (PM2.5) is known to adversely affect the respiratory system, inducing airway inflammation and other conditions. The study explores the impact of air purifiers on reducing these harmful particles.

Minimal maintenance

While they are a low maintenance device, they do need a little bit of TLC to keep them running at their peak efficiency. Regular care not only prolongs the life of your device but also ensures that you're breathing the cleanest air possible.

  • Filter Replacement: One of the most crucial aspects of maintaining an air purifier is timely filter replacement. Depending on usage and air quality, HEPA filters typically last up to 12 months.
  • Cleaning the Exterior: Dust and dirt can accumulate on the exterior of your air purifier. Vacuum or wipe it down with a soft cloth every few weeks to keep it looking and functioning its best.
  • Checking the pre-filter. It's important to check and clean your pre-filter every few weeks to prevent unwanted build up, keeping your unit running at its optimum level.
  • Sensor cleaning: If your air purifier has air quality sensors, it's good to keep them clean. A gentle vacuum or wipe with a soft cloth will ensure they are clean and ready to detect any changes in your air quality.
  • Storing the Device: If you're not using your air purifier for an extended period, give it a proper clean and store it in a cool, dry place. 

Remember, a well-maintained air purifier not only ensures optimal performance but also reduces the risk of malfunction and will keep your unit running for years to come.
