Clean Your Air & Humidify: Air Purifier Humdifier

Wouldn’t it be great if every item in your house did double-duty? Maybe a garlic press that also was a great lemon juicer. Or if your bathtub also converted into a giant washing machine that could handle a whole load of comforters and pillows? It seems like for every problem, there’s a device that acts as a solution; the trouble is, our homes are overflowing with bulky, costly devices! So let’s talk about a home device that pulls double-duty: the AP03 HEPA Air Purifier & Humidifier. 

Why do I need an air purifier humidifier?

When most people think about the indoor air quality concerns of their home, more than one issue comes up. Maybe you have pets…but also kids with allergies. Or maybe you live in an arid climate…but also in a big city with high levels of air pollution. The PowerPure AP03 is the perfect solution for adding the right amount of moisture to dry, winter air while also addressing the contaminants that happen to be polluting it.

Do I have to run the air purifier and humidifier at the same time?

What’s also fantastic is the PowerPure AP03’s two primary functions operate independently — so you can purify the air all year and then humidify only when needed in the dry months or when suffering from a respiratory illness. The PowerPure AP03 also features quiet HEPA air purification, as well as a granulated carbon filter for the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde, cooking odors and other potentially dangerous chemicals.

Another category of devices that serve a dual purpose are called air washers. In addition to being a humidifier, our air washer humidifiers also help to purify the air. Water — in conjunction with rotating discs — retain and remove airborne impurities, including large dust and pollen particles, while returning clean, properly-humidified air to the room. They are very reliable and they can cover a much larger area than most humidifiers, but they are not dual function like AP03, they both humidify and purify simultaneously.
