Sources of Air Pollution Inside The Car

Many people simply don’t see the benefits of using a car air purifier but understanding the pollution that enters the car may help with explaining their uses.

For example, if you like to drive with the windows down, particles will enter the car and come in the form of dust, pollen, fumes and more. Poorly smells due to various odors can also be eliminated with an air purifier, which can make driving inside your car far more pleasurable.

Ionizer vs Filters

Ionizers that feature in air purifiers trap airborne particles present inside of the car. It uses electrons that are released from the device that attach to air molecules. These electrons then form ions that attract harmful particles and bad odors. This process cleans the air within your car and removes allergens.

A filter type of purifier uses multiple filters, where the first captures large particles. The second filter, which is normally the HEPA filter removes dust and other harmful particles.

But compared to Ionizer, Filters creates a second pollution by keep the dust and viruses on the filter pad.

How an Ionizer Helps Clean the Air ?

Ionizers work due to the electrical effects of positive and negative charges, which are attracted to each other. When the air cleaner’s ionizer is turned on, voltage is applied to a series of built-in needles, creating electrons which are discharged into the air. When these electrons attach to air molecules, negatively-charged ions are formed.

These negative ions are expelled into the room where they attach to positively-charged dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, and pet dander to form larger particles. These can more easily be trapped by your air cleaner's filters. These particles can also descend to the floor to be vacuumed later. They may attach to positively charged surfaces in the room and the grill of your air cleaner, requiring frequent dusting.
