How Ionizers Keep Your Home Fresh

Posted by Cierra on July 29th, 2011

Waterfalls are good sources of negative ions.If you’ve been looking for an air purifier lately, you may have noticed several that include ionizers. Though they’re beginning to appear practically everywhere, ionizers are common features found in air purifiers, fans and air circulators, heaters, and swamp coolers. But what, exactly, is an ionizer—and why should you invest in a product with one?

In short, ionizers emit ions—charged particles—to help an air purifier’s filters trap contaminants in your indoor environment. Many of our air purifiers, such as the Honeywell HFD-120-Q Tower air purifier, now feature ionizers to capture particles that otherwise would be too small to filter out. This is extremely helpful if you have allergies, asthma, or chemical sensitivities, as ionic air purifiers more effectively remove pollutants ranging from pollen, mold, dust, and pet dander to viruses, smoke, odors, and chemical toxins.

But in addition to boosting air quality, ionic air purifiers also reduce static electricity, improve your mood, and help ward off fatigue. So how can such a simple mechanism have so many positive effects?

Dyson Logo Image This past month of May was truly one of excitement in the halls of Sylvane as we prepared for not one, but two major brands to join our online catalog. I told you about our first major addition, Miele vacuums, last week. (Be sure to check out my blog Introducing Miele Vacuums if you missed it!) This week, feast your eyes on the latest brand to join our vacuum and fan categories—UK-based Dyson!

You’ve probably seen Dyson products at your local big-box store. The high-tech, ball-bearing upright Dyson vacuums never fail to catch my eye on my shopping trips and get me dreaming of an easier way to clean. More recently, you’ve likely also encountered the swanky bladeless Dyson air multipliers on the shelves just in time for summer. While big-box stores are known for their sometimes unbeatable deals and upper hand in convenience, one thing they often lack is variety.
