What is an Air Ionizer? How Does An Ionizer Work?

Updated: Jul 16, 2020

When you buy an air purifier for your car or home, you often have the option of getting a model that has an ionizer. But an independent ionizer helps to trap airborne particles and more efficiently clean the air in your home. This may help you breathe better, as long as you are vacuuming and dusting frequently.

At first, ionizing technology may seem difficult to understand, but we assure you that it’s not.

Below, we’ll talk about how does an ionizer work and why you may want to consider getting one for your home.


What is an Air Ionizer?

An ionizer is a device that you can place inside your home or car which uses a unique form of technology to clean the air around you.

This type of device is very powerful because it can help to get rid of particles as small as .01 microns in size. This includes most pollen, bacteria, allergens and dust that cause breathing problems and overall lower health.

Compared to HEPA filter technology, which is the biggest competing type of air purifier for an Ionizer, this product doesn’t operate by way of a physical paper filter.

The way in which it works is actually quite simple to understand.

An air ionizer (also known and an Ionic air purifier) operates by emitting negatively charged ions into the air. These ions attract positively charged ions, which includes things like allergens, dust and bacteria, and causes a bond to form between them.

Once this bond is formed, the particles become heavier than normal. This weight increase causes the bonded particles to fall to the ground.

Ionizers are an attractive type of air purifier for many homeowners because they don’t require costly filter changes.


Additional Ionizer Benefits

• Negative ions can clear the air of mould spores, pollen, pet smells, odour, bacteria, viruses, dust and other nasty airborne particles. How? They attach to these positively charged particles in large numbers. It causes the germs, pollen and bacteria etc. to become too heavy to stay airborne. The nasty particles drop to the floor or nearby surface and can be easily wiped away. Negative ionizers are been shown to clear the air of PM2.5, dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores and other potential allergens. Ionizer can considerably decrease airborne viruses and bacteria.

• Improves the operation of the cilia in your respiratory tract that shields your lungs from irritation and inflammation, thus leading to less instances of respiratory illnesses like colds and flu and even fever and asthma. Negative ionizers have a relaxing and calming effect. They have been reported to normalize your breathing rate, decrease blood pressure, and relieve tension.

• Negative ions increase sense of well-being and mental clarity by removing the debilitating effects of excess positive ions. They are often called a natural anti-depressant. Negative ions can help you sleep better as they normalize serotonin production in the brain. Negative ions have a relaxing effect and can normalize breathing rates, reduce blood pressure and relieve tension and headache.

• To nervous system, it energizes whole body, improves sleep quality, eases pain and tension. Negative ions boost your overall well-being by enhancing mental clarity by decreased carbon absorption, removing the debilitating effects of excessive positive ions in your environment.
