Air Purification

Air Purification

$329.00

You know to be careful about outdoor pollution, but do you ever think about the toxins that are floating around inside your home? This air purifier eliminates contaminants like dust mites and mold, which may be the culprits behind your allergies or skin problems.

THE STORY

We’ve used air purifiers before, but nothing works quite as well as the AirDoctor. It uses a powerful yet quiet filtration system up to 100 times more effective than regular air filters.

The AirDoctor captures harmful ultrafine particles that regular air systems can’t. These tiny particles come from refineries, cars, and even your own everyday activities like cooking and cleaning.

We love the whisper-quiet design of the AirDoctor, so you can forget it’s sitting right next to you. Plus, it comes with an air quality sensor that automatically adjusts the fan speed based on the real-time quality of the air!

CARE

The AirDoctor is pretty low maintenance. An indicator light will let you know when it’s time to change the filters. Typically, this is only about once or twice per year, depending on the air quality in your home.

CONSIDERATIONS

The AirDoctor comes with a one-year warranty, which does not cover filters or replacements. It can filter all the air in a 2,400 square foot room within an hour, so smaller rooms will be purified at a faster rate.

THE SCIENCE

There are quite a few known health risks of those tiny molecules generated by cars, cooking, cleaning and other everyday toxins. One German study found that ultrafine molecules from air pollution have a delayed effect on health, meaning the damage is done before you even know you have a problem.

Your body absorbs these tricky molecules by breathing them in. Once they enter your lungs, they can enter the bloodstream, slowly causing serious respiratory and cardiac issues, like asthma, stroke and heart attack. Repeatedly breathing in these toxic particles can even be carcinogenic, with lung cancer being a particular concern.

Your hormone health can suffer from air pollution, too. One animal study found that exposure to diesel molecules can increase growth hormone secretion, causing reproductive toxicity.

Fortunately, the AirDoctor removes all these worrisome particles from the air through its fully sealed design, which ensures that ALL the air in the room passes through the filter and does not escape from unsealed leaks. This reliable system traps even the tiniest molecules.
