Air purifiers, as their name suggest, purify the air we breathe indoors. Even if we do not see it, air is composed of different gases and can carry germs, pollutants and fine particles. And these are invisible to the naked eye, except for dust which sometimes can be observed when a concentrated ray of sun enters a room.

On abnormally hot days, the air is warmer and more concentrated in harmful substances. Air purifiers can help you fight this pollution that enters our body through the air we breathe or through the pores of our skin.

Air purifiers generate and circulate a healthy air, protecting our skins and lungs from harmful chemical molecules or bacterial agents. To get the best performance out of you air purifier, you should make sure to buy a model whose power corresponds to the size of your home. The larger the space, the more powerful the air purifier will need to be.

Air purifiers facilitate air circulation during heat waves

The action of air purifiers is not limited to the elimination of bacteria and fine particles. They will also circulate the air in your room, including fresh air. Indeed, air purifiers can renew the air of a vast surface in a matter of minutes. This helps keeping up with fresh air that you let in and purify it from bacteria and particles of pollution.

During heat waves, you can ventilate your house or your apartment in the evening and at night with the help of air purifiers. This will keep you cool while cleaning your indoor air of all the pollutants it contains.


A proper air circulation actually helps improve blood flow because it improves the quality of our breathing. The hotter the air, the less effective our breathing becomes because we spend more energy regulating our body temperature. This helps explain our feeling of oppression or compression during hot days or in hot climates such as a desert. Air purifiers such as the ones sold by AIRVIA Medical allows you to easily and quickly check your indoor air quality, right from the screen of your Remote Control Display.
