          Environmentalists advocate for mass-immigration from Africa to Europe, which causes increased pollution and CO2 emissions due to the fact that living in Europe means that you have to heat your home. Not to mention that it increases rent and the crime rate, and decreases wages.

            it's quite barebone technical and effective
            a good air ionizer will have the walls besides it coated in black muck in a few weeks
            that's the stuff that's in your air that gets pulled to positive/neutral surfaces once negatively charged ions stick to it
            remember "negative" is a reverse convention: adding an electron creates a negative ion as by convention electrons have a negative charge
            thing is, the market is saturated by meme ionizers that do squat

            ok, but air ionizers work by charging particles that are floating in air, it's not like there are ions freely existing in air we breath (unless it's storm)

            there are some, just little

            without extra electrons all manners of biochemical exchanges cannot happen
            static charge isnt good

      Not against visible dust
      Do you really think that a quiet fan operating in the corner of your room has the power to move visible dust particles across the room? It's going to be less dusty in it's immediate vicinity but would need a literal jet engine fan to help a whole room
      They only move small light particles that are too light to settle on surfaces like pollen

        also address the dust sources like heaters, wall coverings (paint, wallpaper) and so on, and anything with a fan and some heat production like.. computers. Regular personal computers produce tons of dust.

        not bashing air filters altogether, they have their use for sensitivegays but as anon said you better buy good ones and stick them everywhere which is quite the budget

    Air purifiers are now a necessity. The air is filled with particulate matter, especially microplastics that are turning us GAY and STUPID. Why are there so many autists and people with ADD/ADHD today? Cancers increasing in youth? Microplastics are one of the driving causes. They have a latent impact on your gut microbiome and it's well established now that children with autism-spectrum disorders tend to suffer from profound disturbances of the microorganisms in their guts.

    Next thing you should get: a humidifier. Will help reduce your heating bill in the winter because humid air can store more heat than dry air, requiring less energy to warm your apartment. It will also make the areas not in direct sunlight feel more balmy

    i also don't think this air purifier is very good. it is only rated for 300 sq ft. i plopped it into my kitchen to help with cooking smells. it helps but barely. there is also still dust flying in the air. i've moved it around the house but i never really keep doors closed. it really can't do much when it's not rated for 1300 sq ft

    they can be very helpful for allergies.
    but how can you tell filter is already saturated? Manufacturers will never tell you filter can get bad way before recommended replacement period. Instead of purifying it may be polluting without you even knowing.

    It makes sense for people with environmental allergies. It makes a big difference in pollen and dust.

    I have some Belgium airflow ventilation system and monitor it with PERL, InfluxDB and Grafana.
    It's nice, I will add some probes and "snmptrap".
