A Guide to Air Purifiers in the Winter

Winter isn’t coming… it’s here! So, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a moment to consider the usefulness and benefits of using an Air Purifier during the colder months of the year. 

If you’re wondering how Air Purifiers work, why you should be using one in your home, or whether they’re any good during winter, make sure to read on!


How Do Air Purifiers Work?

Let’s start with some Air Purifier 101.

Vornado Air Purifiers are designed to effectively filter the air in an indoor room of its airborne allergens and pollutants. Unlike air cleaning, air purifying actually filters the air in your home and sanitises it in the process.

Using true HEPA filtration (more on that in a moment), our Air Purifiers ensure an unbroken cycle of filtered air by bouncing the airflow off of the various surfaces of a room and ensuring continuous filtering. This cycle means that the air inside your room is as clean as possible.

Recommended for rooms sized 20 square-metres and smaller for most efficient use, a Vornado Air Purifier offers reliable, affordable and hassle-free air filtering by conducting the air through the cycle four times or more each hour.

True HEPA filtration

Thanks to the true HEPA filtration, an Air Purifier can actively filter out particles as small as 0.3 microns in size. This high-level of filtration means that 99.97% of airborne particles–think pollen, dust and bacteria–are eliminated.

Why should you care about microns and filters? Because with our true HEPA filtration Air Purifier you and your family get to enjoy cleaner, fresher and healthier air.


Are Air Purifiers Good for the Winter?

One of the most common myths of air purifiers is that it’s only useful during allergy seasons. Suffice it to say that this myth could not be more wrong.

Of course, Vornado Air Purifiers are particularly helpful during the months of spring and autumn when there’s an increased level of pollen and other allergens in the air. However, Air Purifiers are certainly beneficial throughout the calendar year.

Why should you use an Air Purifier this winter?


The Benefits To Using Air Purifiers In The Winter


Fresh Air

An Air Purifier works to ensure you enjoy fresh and clean air in your home. While there are obvious health and wellbeing benefits to breathing filtered air into your lungs, having fresh air in winter is often even more important. When the weather is cold and/or rainy, you’re likely to be inside more often and for longer stretches. Windows are probably not going to be open as often either.

All of this results in stale air that’s been circling through the room picking up more airborne pollutants. Add into this equation the likelihood of heaters being run and you’re probably facing a stuffy winter ahead. Air Purifiers can fix this. Through effective and continuous filtration, you can enjoy the best of both worlds: clean and fresh air, and a warm home safe from the colder, wetter weather of winter.


Remove Pollutants

Airborne pollutants, such as allergens, can really affect your breathing and health, even if you’re not asthmatic or prone to suffering from allergies. A Vornado Air Purifier works just as effectively during the cold season as it does through Spring, Summer and Autumn. Removing airborne pollutants and allergens is the easy and hassle-free way of keeping everyone as healthy as can be during a season already riddled with increases in flu and colds.


Complementary with Vornado Heaters

Have you seen our range of Vornado Heaters? Thanks to the unique and state-of-the-art vortex action in our Heaters, your home can enjoy a continuous stream of warmed air. Most convection and infrared heaters generate localised heat. This means the hot air rises upwards, cools, and then comes back down. It’s just not as effective. By ensuring a constantly circulating current of hot air, you can enjoy a truly comfortable and cozy atmosphere from anywhere in the room.

What does this have to do with Air Purifiers? Thanks to the vortex technology, our Heaters don’t add any pollutants to the air so they work in perfect complementary synchronicity with our Air Purifiers. Warm yet fresh and clean air is possible with Vornado!


Reduce Harmful Indoor Pollution

Over the winter season homes tend to see a build-up in harmful indoor pollutants. Whether it’s the chemicals from household cleaning supplies, paint taking longer to dry in the cooler weather, pesticides, smoke from wood fires, gas emissions from stovetops, or general pollutants from washers and dryers, a Vornado Air Purifier helps to filter all this increase in dust and allergens from the air.


Enjoy the Time Indoors

Winter should be fun and snuggly! With an effective Air Purifier you can enjoy all the time indoors without worrying about comfort or health. An Air Purifier is simply the perfect way to make the most of the colder months of the year.


Win this Winter with an Air Purifier

The sooner you get your Vornado Air Purifier set up, the sooner you and your loved ones can enjoy fresh and clean air throughout the winter. Forget the misconception of air purifiers as only useful during the allergy-prone months of the year. 

There are many benefits to using an Air Purifier whether it’s warm and sunny outside or cold and miserable. Perfect for all-year round, make sure to check out the Vornado AC350 Air Purifier & accessories for yourself today.
