With the improvement of living standards, people’s requirements for the living environment are also increasing, and many families will use air purifiers to purify indoor air. During the use process, many people will ask a question: Does the air purifier need to be on all the time? How long is it appropriate to keep it on?
Air purifiers can filter PM2.5, dust, and allergens in the indoor air. Some air purifiers also have some special functions, such as sterilization or targeted filtering of certain pollutants. Some people say that the air purifier must be turned on for 24 hours to ensure that the air in the home is always clean.
Some people say that the air purifier should not be on all the time, because it wastes electricity, and the filter consumes too fast, and the replacement cost is too high, which will increase the economic burden; or worry that the machine will shorten the service life if it is kept on.
Here, the editor tells everyone: the air purifier cannot be turned on all the time. But the reasons are not those mentioned above.
The air purifier is used in a closed room. Its working principle is the principle of internal circulation, which purifies the original indoor air. The machine sucks indoor air into the machine through the air inlet for filtering and purification, and then discharges the filtered air through the air outlet, which can effectively reduce harmful substances such as PM2.5 and peculiar smells in the room. This cycle achieves the purpose of purifying the air. The air path processed by the air purifier is: indoor → indoor.
What does this mean? It means that if the air purifier is used for a long time, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the indoor air will continue to increase, and the oxygen will be insufficient, so that stale air is harmful to human health.
Some people may argue that the house is not completely sealed, and there will be some gaps between doors and windows, so outdoor air and indoor air can still be exchanged. However, such a negligible exchange rate cannot meet the human body’s healthy breathing requirements, and the indoor carbon dioxide content will continue to increase.
Therefore, everyone cannot keep the air purifier on. After using it for a period of time, open the windows for ventilation to ensure the freshness of the indoor air. As for how long it takes to ventilate, it mainly depends on the local air quality, the size of the indoor space, the number of people, and the level of indoor air pollution.
In fact, in addition to air purifiers, there is now another type of air purification equipment that is also very popular with consumers and is more suitable for home use. That is the fresh air system, also called fresh air purifier.
The fresh air system integrates ventilation and air purification functions. Its working principle is external circulation. The outdoor air is sucked in by the fan, filtered, and transported into the room. At the same time, a slight positive pressure environment is formed in the room, and the originally dirty air in the room is discharged to the outside. The path of fresh air system processing air is: outdoor→indoor→outdoor, to complete the replacement of outdoor indoor air. Some fresh air fans also have an internal circulation mode and a mixed mode. In the internal circulation mode, the fresh air purifier is used as an air purifier; in the mixed mode, the fresh air is sent to the outside while circulating and purifying the original indoor air.
