Every Home Needs An Air Purifier: Here's Why

The LUFT Cube Portable Air Purifier is the best way to protect your home air quality.


Did you know that indoor air quality can be more toxic than outside? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollutants are often two to five times higher than outdoor levels. They can even exceed 100 times that of outdoor levels of the same pollutants.

If you haven't given air quality much thought, you're not alone. Most of us take for granted that the air we breathe is fresh and clean, especially inside our homes. But that's certainly not always the case. The recent California wildfires are a good reminder that there's more to air quality than meets the eye. And even if you can't see or smell an air quality issue, it can still be there, putting you and your family in jeopardy. 

While we know the damage wildfires can do to our immediate air quality, those are extreme events and not the norm for most of us. But there are everyday threats, too, some right in our own homes that, over time, can be just as dangerous as the acute impact of wildfires on air quality.

How Do Air Purifiers Clean Air?

If COVID-19 best practices have acclimated you to how hand sanitizers work, you'll understand how air purifiers filter the air. They essentially sanitize the surrounding air by removing or neutralizing particles that can be harmful to our health.

Just like a humidifier or even an oil diffuser adds particulates to the air, purifiers, like vacuums, suck them up. These pollutants can include mold, dust, allergens, and toxins such as those produced by new rugs or furniture. And if you've been spending a lot of time indoors, these pollutants can be just as harmful as smoke.

The LUFT Air Purifiers

LUFT air purifiers integrate innovative technologies with a minimalistic design. They differ from conventional filter-based purifiers because LUFT uses its patented Solid-State Photocatalysis Purification (SPP) technology along with UV LED light to destroy toxic chemical gases, molds, bacteria, allergens, and unpleasant smells. 

While some purifiers rely on ozone to help purify, LUFT does not, as ozone can become toxic if interacting with certain pollutants in the home. 

LUFT's air purifier also features 360° air intake to combat pollutants from all angles and magnetic suspensions motor fan that operates quietly at 30dB. 

  • Patented SPP Nanotech + UV LED:  Destroys toxic chemical gases, molds, bacteria, allergens, & unpleasant smells
