Air purifier VS air sterilizer, who is more suitable for ordinary families?

When it comes to winter, avoiding the cold and keeping warm is a problem that many families will encounter. In cold places, every household is equipped with heating; in lower latitudes, one house and one air conditioner are almost common. However, although this method can control the indoor air temperature within a certain temperature range, the indoor air quality will fall and fall due to closed doors and windows. At this time, air purifiers and air sterilizers became essential artifacts for many families to spend the winter. So, who is more worth buying these two electronics?



Difference 1: Standard


Take Panasonic, which was founded in 1918 as an example. Its air sterilizer is produced by using the sterilization standard of "Disinfection Technical Specification", and the natural bacteria sterilization rate in air is as high as 90%. Air purifiers will not have so many strict requirements in these aspects.


Difference 2: Filter


Whether it is an air purifier or an air sterilizer, how effective they are ultimately depends to a large extent on the filter. Most of the filters can intercept and filter out large particles such as dust and animal hair, and the remaining ones such as PM2.5 and odors are handled by filters with a lower density. In general, the filter that an air purifier may carry also promotes a germicidal effect. But with smaller, harmful substances like viruses, it has no way. In addition, the filter needs to be replaced regularly to prevent bacteria from accumulating in the filter. But air sterilizers are different. Take Panasonic air sterilizer, lysozyme is added to its filter. This alkaline enzyme can destroy the cell wall and cause the ruptured contents of the cell wall to escape, thereby causing bacteria to dissolve. In addition, the filter of the Panasonic air disinfection machine uses H13 grade HEPA high-efficiency filter material, and the filtration rate of fine particles of 0.3 ~ 0.5μm has reached 99.97%. In other words, air purifiers can only do something for bacteria, and air disinfectors can inhibit and eliminate bacteria and viruses.


Difference 3: Adherent bacteria


Generally speaking, the air purifier can only purify the air passing through the air inlet, but the air sterilizer can not only remove airborne bacteria in the air, but also actively remove bacteria. If there are children in the family, the air sterilizer is more suitable.


In short, the air purifier can meet the normal needs of most families, and the air sterilizer with high standard disinfection level sterilization and purification capacity is suitable for people who have higher requirements for air quality, or people with poor quality in the area!
