Air Purifiers For Viruses And Bacteria

Best Air Purifiers For Viruses And Bacteria - Aerify

What are the best air purifiers for viruses and bacteria?

Below are select models without the marketing hype that really get the job done. Most of our customers say they are looking for an "air purifier that kills germs," so let us help you.

Air ionisers and electrostatic air purifiers

These filterless devices produce negative ions that collide with suspended particles or molecules that move through the air and give them a charge, killing bacteria and viruses while they are still airborne. Unlike pure ionisers, electrostatic air purifiers have a positively charged collector plate or filter that attracts negatively charged particles.

Air purifiers with photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology

Photocatalysis is an eco-friendly technology that has been proven to be effective in killing microorganisms and chemical contaminants.

Air purifiers with HEPA filters and UV-C light

Since HEPA filtration can have limited ability in stopping the smallest of viral pathogens, manufacturers are turning to the added efficacy of UV-C light germ-killing technology. HEPA filters trap harmful pathogens and then UV-C light destroys their DNA, effectively neutralising them after several seconds of continuous, intense exposure.
