Air Ionizer

The whole family is suffering from Allergic Rhinitis, the reason why we have this air ionizer at home. Air ionizers can remove microbes such as mold spores, viruses and germs from the air.  It acts as air fresheners, neutralizing odors from pets, cigarettes and even cooking smells to create a cleaner home environment.

It creates ions which remove microscopic particles from the air.  The air is cleaned, helping us to breathe better.  In our case we only have one air ionizer placed in our bedroom. This small machine is really of great help to us.  It was recommended by our Allergologist years ago. Through proper care it lasted for years too.  It is still in good running condition until now.


Air ionizers clean the air by sending molecular particles into the room. Those particles, also known as ions, attach to oxygen in the air to create a negative charge. Once it becomes a negative ion, the molecule attaches itself to pollen, dander, dust and odor to create a cluster. The ionizer then pulls the cluster into an air filter, which can be cleaned or replaced as needed.
However, their usefulness can be hampered if the filter in your air purifier requires changing. If you happen to have one, just clean your ionic purifier and change the filter regularly to keep it performing at its best. J

  1. hello Joy. Thanks for the visit. You write interesting topics and I like it. By the way, how is the air ionizer different with Sanyo's virus washer? Is is it the same? I think I'm going to need this too for my room, but I don't if this is affordable. he.he.he.

  3. in my knowledge the virus washer emits mists (electrolyzed water) to purify the air, while this air ionizer we are using emits ions, attach to oxygen in the air to create a negative charge that attracts dusts, odor, etc.

    i bought this air ionizer for Php 5,000, but that was 7 years ago hehe

  10. I have been using air ionizers for over 3 years now, because I have to work infront of my computer for long hours, I find having negative air ionizers really help me to feel less tired. I even buy those USB drive Ionizers as I carry my laptop around and work, check this out : myairionizers.com

  12. We had that one before, noong sa US pa kami nakatira, but I do believed that the best thing to keep the air clean inside the house is a fresh indoor plant as it's their job to clean tha air. :)
