10 Astonishing Stats on Air Purifiers & the Coronavirus

You’ve probably heard of air purifiers in the past, but they’ve never been as vital as they are during the current coronapocalypse!

Filter-less Purifier


Thanks a lot, Corona, for disrupting supply chains, logistics, and online channels supplying essential goods!

However, thanks to commercial end-users, air purifiers can still be sold and bought.

The air purifier market is estimated to grow from a $1,559.8 million industry (2019) to a $2,350.8 million industry by 2023. A whopper 50.73% increase! They must be confident in the efficacy of air purifiers.

Air Purifier


Air purifiers create better air ventilation, which can help reduce the risk of catching Ms. corona by 23%!

Your options include a single room purifier or an entire home purifying system, like the HVAC filter.

However, the risk for catching the virus obviously decreases when you combine the use of an air purifier with other methods of safety (wearing your mask, washing your hands regularly and keeping a safe social distance from others, etc.)

HEPA Filter


Droplets and airborne particles can transmit the coronavirus. Air purifiers reduce both of these, depending on the quality and type of air purifier you have. Electrostatic air purifiers reduce these by roughly 60-80% and HEPA air purifiers by approximately 87-99%!

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA for short), “Air cleaners and HVAC filters are designed to filter pollutants or contaminants out of the air that passes thru them.

Air cleaning and filtration can help reduce airborne contaminants, including particles containing viruses” by up to 99%!

Clean and Quiet


Medical studies have found that COVID-19 causes long-lasting lung damage. Pneumonia and sometimes even acute respiratory distress syndrome (or ARDS) can occur after recovering from the virus.

Sepsis is also a possible result of COVID-19, which is permanent damage to the lungs and other organs.

Let me tell you…

If you’ve had COVID-19, first of all, I’m so sorry that you had to go through that!

Second of all, you’ll LOVE having an air purifier around! It’ll make the air you breathe 99% cleaner and make your lungs much happier in their damaged state.

Playing House


If you’ve had an air purifier for a while now, you’re in good luck! Air purifiers cause people to have better respiratory health because they’re breathing in clean air all the time. They’re not putting their lungs under a lot of stress! Why is this important?

Well, if you have respiratory issues like asthma, lung disease, or you inhale a lot of smoke/are a smoker, you’re more likely to suffer more severely from COVID-19. This, in turn, puts you at a greater risk of dying from the virus even if you’re young.

Clean Filter


Between the two types of air purifiers – filters and sanitizers – HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are the MOST POPULAR and believed to be the MOST EFFECTIVE measure to clean your indoor air. However, air sanitizer sales have also gone up drastically during the year as they’re known to kill 99% of bacteria, mold, viruses, or fungal spores found in the air in your home.

UV-light air purifiers can clear the air of viruses if it’s run for some time. Up to 99.94-99.97%! Because long enough exposure to UV-light in an air purifying device can disable some viruses, including COVID-19, it’s a MUST HAVE!

According to the New York Times, “The virus that causes COVID-19 is approximately 0.125 micron (125 nanometers) in diameter.”

Better yet:

HEPA filters capture 0.01 micron (10 nanometers) and bigger! So, you’ll be safe from ‘Rona! Now, flattening the curve can be easy!
