HEPA/Ozone Air Purifier Safety Concerns – Indoor Air Quality Report Released

Online air purifier company Think Air Purifiers, an EPA-certified Indoor Air Quality expert, has released a report that discusses the health and environmental hazards some air purifiers can pose, informing consumers on what to look out for when planning their air purifier purchase.

Despite the growing presence of smog and other outdoor air pollutants, the EPA estimates that outdoor air is often less polluted than indoor air. Individuals with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory challenges should therefore invest in an effective air purifier that removes harmful airborne allergens, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and more from home environments. A report issued by e-comm company Think Air Purifiers supports these findings, warning readers that some air purifiers are not as safe as they appear to be.

Both HEPA and Ozone air purifiers are products consumers associate with effective air cleaning technologies, however, both can produce harmful byproducts. In their newly released report, Think Air Purifiers say some air purifiers come with certain risks. They recommend consumers research any unit they’re considering buying to ensure the unit isn’t doing more harm than good.


Consumers with compromised respiratory systems and other health problems often use HEPA home air purifiers to remove indoor air pollutants. HEPA purifiers work by trapping harmful particles in a filter. Authors of the Think Air Purifiers report say this is where consumers need to be vigilant. HEPA filters require regular replacement to prevent dirty filters from producing contaminated air.


When replacing a HEPA filter, the report recommends consumers wear a mask and replace the filters outdoors when possible. Filters should be replaced frequently, according to manufacturer instructions.


The report cautions that ozone purifiers can emit harmful ozone into the home. Ozone (03) produced by air purifiers is a volatile molecule that combines with indoor air pollutants, canceling their effectiveness.


A company in Sweden is taking this issue seriously. LightAir is a Clean Tech company that develops air purifiers based on patented and groundbreaking technologies for safe indoor air purification.


The portable LightAir IonFlow 2.0 Signature, for example, is especially beneficial for people with asthma, allergies, COPD, and anyone sensitive to fine and ultra-fine particles.

Third-party government tests conclude that the LightAir IonFlow Signature removes airborne particles as small as PM 0.007, producing clean air without ozone.


With the release of their recent report, the team at Think Air Purifiers is helping audiences learn what to look for when buying air purifying systems to ensure they invest in the safest, most effective units.
