The Surprising Big Benefits from a Small Air Purifier

The Surprising Big Benefits from a Small Air Purifier | Clair America


Ever heard the saying, "good things come in small packages"? With an air purifier, this can certainly be said to be the case. When judging how effective an air purifier is, you ideally want to consider its efficiency over its size. The higher the efficiency, the purer the air. It's that simple.

Today, we will show you the surprising benefits of a small air purifier.

What Size Are Air Purifiers?

People often associate air filtrations systems with big, heavy units. The reason for this is that they are used to thinking about air conditioners and such.

With air purifiers, this simply isn't the case.

To give you the actual dimensions, some of the best air purifiers can be as small as 10" x 9" x 14" and weigh less than 6lbs.

What's that in real terms?

It would be around the same size as an average office waste paper basket. That's pretty tiny, considering its output and capabilities.

How Do Small Air Purifiers Work?

Small air purifiers work by filtering the air in stages. As a general rule, the more stages, the better. Air is taken into the purifier by a powerful fan and is pushed through several HEPA filters. These filters remove impurities and particles from the air.

Once all the impurities have been removed, there can sometimes be a final stage where the air is bombarded with UV light. This final stage can even remove germs and viruses!

The output rate and purity of the air are what counts. It doesn't really matter if you have a large air purifier if the air it puts out isn't as pure as you would find from a small air purifier.

What are the advantages and benefits of a small air purifier? Read on to find out.

Benefits of Small Air Purifiers

Thinking of getting a small air purifier? Here are some of the advantages that you'll gain: 

  • They Take Up Less Space

While everybody loves breathing pure air, it won't be quite as sweet if your air purifier takes up too much space.

The answer?

A small air purifier.

The Clair Air K2 HEPA air filter has a really small footprint and is entirely discrete. In fact, it actually looks pretty neat. Due to its small size, you can place it practically anywhere, on a window ledge, a bedside table, under a desk, or in the corner of a room.

  • Odor Removal

Air purifiers can be that efficient that they can even remove bad smells. Think of things like cooking odors, fumes from outdoors, wood or cigarette smoke, and even pet odors.

If bad smells are distracting you or something is lingering, a high output, compact air filter would likely solve your problem.

  • Air Purifiers Remove and Kill Germs

Some lower-quality air purifiers don't do anything to remove germs. With small air purifiers, such as those provided by Clair Air, there is an additional stage used to treat the air to ensure it is perfectly pure.

After the air leaves the filters, it is passed through an Ultra Violet light. This is a proven scientific technique to kill germs and viruses.

  • Allergen Reduction

Allergens can make their way into your home in a surprising number of ways. Pollen, pet hair, and even dust itself can be enough to trigger an allergic reaction. Runny noses, sore throats, and red eyes can become tiring if they are always triggered in your own home.

In certain cases, allergies can appear later on in life due to constant exposure to things that were previously considered not a problem too.

The best solution in either case?

A small air purifier with a good filter. Allergen particles are easily large enough to be trapped and removed by a HEPA filter, meaning no more allergic reactions.

The small and compact air purifiers produced by Clair Air are certified by the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) who has found them highly effective.

  • Plenty of Fresh Pure Air

Remember we talked about output?

You would be amazed at how much clean and fresh air is output by such compact air purifiers.

Want some examples?

In rooms of around 179 square feet, a Clair K2 can purify all of the air within the room in under 15 minutes. And it doesn't stop there. Large rooms, say, 714 square feet, can be filled with pure air in an hour.

That's pretty good going! 

  • Better Sleep

Many people are surprised to learn that an air filter can actively help get a good night's rest. Particularly those with breathing difficulties.

You might not be aware, but your sleep quality can really suffer from poor quality air. If you are going to bed early but still feeling tired in the morning, poor quality air could be the culprit. Dust, fumes, and smells can cause irritation and coughs, which will wake you up and disturb your sleeping patterns. A small air purifier can remove these elements.

What's more, by leaving an air purifier constantly running (which you should), many users have reported a better night's sleep due to the low purr of white noise, which gently drowns out other sounds.

  • Clean Air at a Glance

This is a feature that you don't often see. Certain air purifiers have a visual indication of how clean the air in your home is. By utilizing color-coded LED lighting, you can actually see it working in real-time, giving you complete peace of mind that the air you are breathing is as pure as possible.


Clair Air is a leading provider of small and compact air purifiers. The benefits of which are certainly surprising. With a HEPA filter and UV filtration, you can be sure that the air in your home is as pure as possible, meaning you can enjoy all of the benefits we've listed above and more!
