Recently, I was trying to weigh the pros and cons of a UV air purifier compared to just a regular air purifier.
A friend of mine was saying that the UV air purifier is just a huge waste of money.
He said that the UV light that they claim kills harmful bacteria and viruses is baloney and likely doesn’t work. Well, I wanted to see for myself so I decided to get one of each and use one at a buddy’s house and one at my place. Of course, I wanted to have the UV air purifier at my house. For some reason, I just felt like I would appreciate feeling safer without the added risk of getting sick with the UV light working to eliminate dangerous germs. I spent a whole month at my house with the UV air purifier and then I went over to my friend’s house to stay for the month there. He didn’t mind because he wanted to know what the outcome was for this little experience. Well, while I was at home with my trusty UV air purifier, I didn’t get sick at all. At my buddy’s house after using the air purifier for a week, I actually came down with a cold. I really can’t be certain until maybe I do a few more experiments, but it honestly seems that the UV air purifier works to prevent you from getting sick. These days you don’t know what kind of germs people are carrying, so I would say that it’s better to go get yourself a nice UV air purifier if you want more than just good air quality in your place.
