Do UV air purifiers work?

if you’re looking for an air purifier that destroys germs from the air in your room, the UV air purifier is a dependable choice to have in mind.

Here are some of the benefits of this type of air purifier:

  • It destroys minute airborne microorganisms

Some microorganisms are too small to be captured by the ordinary filter, but a UV air cleaning system is able to do it.

As a matter of fact, UV air purifiers are able to destroy pathogens that are smaller than 0.3microns.

  • It also kills disease causing microorganisms

Most air cleaning systems out there cannot control the spread of airborne diseases in any way (common cold, flu, measles, TB and many others). However, the germicidal UV lamps are strong enough to kill an impressive range of pathogens before they get to your lungs.

It seems that UV air purifying options are also good for protecting the ones with weaker immune system

Note: The UV air purifiers don’t need a strong fan for a good performance, but you do need to use an air cleaning option before using it.

As the UV air cleaner only uses germicidal UV lamps to remove airborne contaminants and not filters. The risk for air contamination is lower but you don’t want to use old bulbs as it may reduce its performance.
