An Ionic Breeze air purifier may be needed to help reduce irritants in the air that trigger asthma or allergies. The air purifier may also have benefits for long-term health, although this has not been proven.
Ionic Breeze air purifiers supposedly remove dust, pollen, pet dander and other irritants from the air. They may also help clean the air of toxins from smoke. This can help people who suffer from respiratory illnesses or reduced immune function, and it may prevent long-term illnesses such as cancer. The units run quietly and do not require filter changes, so they may work for people who have trouble maintaining other air purifiers. However, independent testing has called the effectiveness of ionic air purifiers into question, as of 2015.
