Is an air purifier better than a dehumidifier?
While both devices can help allergy sufferers, an air purifier is the best choice. Air purifiers clean the air of allergens, mold spores, dust, bacteria, and pet dander. A dehumidifier can only reduce the spread of dust mites and mold growth. While both devices can help with mold, a dehumidifier is the best choice.
What is the difference between air purifier and air humidifier?
Air purifiers and humidifiers have different functions. Air purifiers are clean indoor air, but do nothing for indoor humidity levels. They remove dust and smoke from the air, as well as allergenic substances like animal dander and pollen. Humidifiers add water into the air, but do not clean it.
Are humidifiers and dehumidifiers the same thing?
A humidifier adds moisture to air when it's too dry (below 35% humidity) and a dehumidifier takes moisture out of air when it's too humid (above 50% humidity).
