The benefits of using a Bionaire air purifier include having clean air inside the home and removing airborne allergens, such as mold, pet dander, pollen, dust and smoke. Bionaire purifiers also help eliminate odors caused by cigarette smoke, cooking fumes and pets.
Bionaire air purifiers can benefit asthma sufferers by reducing indoor allergens that aggravate symptoms. The Bionaire air purifiers provide allergy relief by trapping 99.97 percent of airborne allergens, which can be beneficial to children and the elderly who are more sensitive to air contaminants than the average adult. Bionaire purifiers use high-efficiency particulate air filters, which are mechanical filters that trap allergens on a fine mesh. Standard HEPA filters catch allergens as small as 2 microns, while Bionaire’s Holmes HEPA filter can trap allergens as small as 0.3 microns, which makes it effective at removing odors and irritants caused by tobacco smoke.
Some Bionaire air purifiers use permanent filters that can be cleaned using a vacuum. This can lead to greater long-term savings benefits by not having to regularly purchase disposable filters.
Bionaire’s air purifiers are tested in terms of their Clean Air Delivery Rate, which is a third party measurement that indicates how much filtered air is provided by the purifier. The CADR rating allows consumers to compare one air purifier brand to another, and higher CADR numbers indicate faster air filtering.
