Summertime. The perfect time to sit around the campfire with friends reminiscing about years past, or sitting on your screened-in porch enjoying a tasty cigar. Perhaps it’s your favorite time of year because you can stand outside, smoke a cigarette and not shiver constantly. Or maybe you just can’t get enough of that barbecue, and you’re cooking up everything from burgers to brats every night of the week.
All of these summertime activities bring so much joy, but they also bring something else—odors. This may lead you (or your family members) to ask one important questions: How do I (we) get rid of these odors?!
And that question leads to the most important question: Which is the best air purifier for smokers and odors?
Why are Carbon Filters Best for Smoke and Odors?
Did you know that activated carbon (charcoal that has been heated or otherwise treated to increase its absorptive power) has long been used to remove chlorine and other impurities from water? This same technology has now been utilized in air purifiers, both commercially and on a smaller scale for home and office use.
Carbon filters are a safe way to protect your family, home and belongings from summertime odors, including cigarette, cigar, barbecue and bonfire smoke. But it also helps remove lingering odors from perfumes and household cleaning items, too, which may irritate those with asthma, or young and elderly family members. This means your carpet, wood paneling, furniture, curtains and other soft or porous materials remain fresh and odorless not just in the summer months, but all year long.
How do Air Purifiers with Carbon Filters Work?
If you were to purchase an air purifier with a carbon filter and examine it closely, you may find that the carbon is combined with other minerals, including zeolite. This useful mineral absorbs ions and molecules, which is the perfect partnership for filtering odors and toxins, alongside carbon. Some air purifiers may also enlist the help of potassium iodide or alumina to increase absorption qualities.
Now that you know the exceptional absorption power of carbon filters, you can find the best air purifier for smokers and odors at Zen Living Air Purifiers online shop. Breathe easy and enjoy your summer!
