Air purifiers, Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

What are Air Purifiers, Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers?

When asked about the differences between air purifiers, humidifiers and dehumidifiers, many people would have absolutely no idea and simply recognise them as ‘improving air quality’ products. However, the functions are very different and here’s what they are.

Air Purifiers

Air purifiers are designed to improve indoor air quality through removal of air pollutants. The purpose of air purifiers is to circulate and filter indoor air by trapping dust, smoke and other air pollutants. Air purifiers are beneficial for anyone who wants to improve their health by breathing in cleaner air.


Humidifier is for increasing the level of humidity in the air by adding water to indoor air. If the indoor relative humidity level is below 30%, a humidifier is needed. Adding moisture to the air can prevent us from having dry skin and wooden furniture from cracking.


Dehumidifier eliminates excessive moisture from the air and bring down a room’s humidity level. A dehumidifier is needed if the indoor relative humidity level is above 50%. It helps in limiting mold and other allergens from growing in your house and aids in helping with respiratory problems.
