Open the window in summer, is the air purifier still effective?

Air purifiers have been around for a long time. Its function is not only to prevent smog. At the beginning of the invention of air purifiers, only a few consumers used them, mainly to remove decoration pollution; Fine particulate matter) is widely concerned, and more and more consumers are starting to use air purifiers.
Since the vast majority of consumers purchase air purifiers to prevent smog, and smog days often occur in winter, most consumers are accustomed to turning on air purifiers in winter. Relatively speaking, the pollution level in summer is not as serious as that in winter, and even if there is smog, it will not last for too many days. Therefore, most consumers will not turn on air purifiers in summer.
But this may be a big misunderstanding of air purifiers. Because air purifiers are not only used to combat PM2.5 pollution, but also to remove VOCs (volatile organic compounds, including formaldehyde), remove pathogenic bacteria and allergens, etc. For people with allergies, pollen, animal hair, and paint odors also need to be purified. Indoor air pollution in summer is even more serious than in winter.
Formaldehyde released in summer
It is understood that the release of formaldehyde is greatly affected by temperature, especially in summer indoors and outdoors in a relatively high temperature and humid environment, which will accelerate the release of formaldehyde in furniture and other decoration materials. According to reports, experiments have shown that for every 1°C rise in room temperature, the formaldehyde volatilized from wooden furniture and floors will increase the formaldehyde concentration in the air by 0.15 to 0.37 times. Daoyi air purifier adopts the national patent - ternary ion polymerization technology, which decomposes organic pollutants while adsorbing. It is one of the few air purifiers on the market that can truly and completely decompose organic pollutants such as formaldehyde.
Therefore, special attention should be paid to preventing formaldehyde from exceeding the standard in summer. Not only formaldehyde but also the volatilization problems of benzene, ammonia, paint smell, etc. are more serious in summer than in winter.
Purifiers may help avoid 'air conditioning sickness'
It is said that "in summer, our life is given by the air conditioner". In summer, it is inevitable to close the windows and turn on the air conditioner. Air conditioning blowing for a long time will cause some people to suffer from "air conditioning disease". If you don't blow the air conditioner, your body can't stand the heat.
It is understood that air conditioners must use water when working, and water can form aerosols with some particulate matter. When the air circulates through the air duct, the bacteria and microorganisms carried in it are gradually deposited and attached to the relevant components of the air conditioner, thus forming a secondary pollution source.
Since the windows are closed when the air conditioner is turned on, the pollutants can only be circulated indoors, and the air quality is therefore reduced. If used in conjunction with an air purifier, the latter can remove fine particles, volatile organic compounds, and bacteria from the air, helping to avoid "air conditioning disease".
Therefore, in summer, an air purifier is the best companion for an air conditioner. In addition, in summer, hundreds of flowers bloom, pollen spreads, animals molt, and fluff is flying. Compared with winter, indoor pollution is more serious in summer. In the face of indoor air pollution, air purifiers are still the best choice for creating clean air in small areas.
