An air purifier can be an excellent option when it comes to enjoying a cleaner and healthier environment. This is especially true if you live in an area with a high level of pollution.
The arrival of spring is cause for joy for many as the weather begins to get better. Temperatures begin to rise, there’s more light throughout the day, birds are singing, bees, flowers, and green buds pop up here and there… However, some suffer from Spring allergies. Fortunately, an air purifier can help!

An itchy nose and throat, watery eyes, a dripping nose, and continuous sneezing can prevent a person who suffers from allergies from enjoying the good weather altogether. However, there is good news: air purifiers help filter and effectively eliminate pollen present in the home.
It’s important to remember that spring is the pollination period for plants. That means that it is inevitable that the air is loaded with pollen. For example, the Spanish Society of Allergology and Immunology indicates that air pollution in urban environments makes the effect of pollen even greater. Hence, people who get hay fever end up suffering even more from their symptoms.
That’s where air purifiers come in handy.
What does an air purifier do?
Air purifiers are very useful devices for everyday life, as they help eliminate the thousands upon thousands of microscopic particles that are potentially harmful to your health. Also, they even help eliminate bad odors.
It’s essential to understand that these particles not only include dust but also mites, animal allergens, mold, pollen, bacteria, viruses and chemical contaminants such as tobacco smoke and carbon monoxide.
Those who have already been inspired to test out the effectiveness of air purifiers say that they consider them a fundamental tool for enjoying a cleaner and pollen-free home.
How do air purifiers work?
Air purifiers have been the most successful in large cities, given the high level of pollution in the environment. However, you can take advantage of the benefits of an air purifier anywhere!
Just plug the device into an outlet and it will start working.
Once your device is installed, it will adapt automatically. Then, when you turn it on, the air purifier will finish purifying the environment in your home in less than 10 minutes.
The Rowenta Intense Pure Air Connect filters and purifies 100% of the finest particles present in the air. In turn, this allows you to breathe clean, pure air. Therefore, this model is an excellent option for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, rhinitis, bronchitis or other conditions that affect the respiratory system.
The success of this technology lies in its four-level filtration system. The device manages to capture all the agents that could cause diseases much more easily. Also, it’s completely silent while doing all of this. The machine executes its task discreetly, without affecting your daily life, activities, and above all, rest.
Since an air purifier has to be connected to an electrical source to operate, it also has a timer. Also, this air purifier comes with plenty of programming options to prevent unnecessary energy use. Furthermore, it can be controlled through a smartphone, inside or outside the home, providing even greater comfort.

Are air purifiers just for the home?
Home air purifier use is very widespread and is the most highly recommended. That being said, you can also install this device in other environments where people usually spend several hours in a row, such as a workplace.
Rowenta air purifiers are recommended by the Spanish Society of Allergology and Clinical Immunology (SEAIC).
Things to consider
While it’s true that an air purifier is a very useful device for keeping your home clean, you can’t leave all the ‘responsibility’ to this machine.
Even when the device is functioning properly, it’s important and necessary to take certain measures, such as:
- Ventilate the house daily for at least 10 or 15 minutes.
- Vacuum carpets and curtains regularly.
- Remove stuffed animals and related objects to avoid the accumulation of respiratory allergens.
- If you have an air conditioner or another air purifier, remember to change the filters regularly. If you don’t, they can accumulate dirt and will stop working properly. Keep in mind that some deodorization and HEPA filters cannot be reused over and over. You have to replace them from time to time.
- Stop using wool bedding and pillows (to prevent the infestation of mites).
- The Intense Pure Air prefilter should be cleaned every 2 to 4 weeks. Consult the owner’s manual of your device to learn how to perform maintenance and cleaning.
Finally, consumers must keep in mind that air purifiers do not consume as much energy as an air conditioner. Additionally, since it completes its function in less than 10 minutes a day, it doesn’t use a lot of energy.
