Honeywell Honeywell air purifiers were among the first consumer air purification devices.
The company was founded by Thomas Edison in 1892.
In 1896, he invented the air purifying device, called the “honey-basket.”
Honeywell patented its air purificator in 1916.
The Honeywell Air Purifying System (HAPS) was marketed to home and office users.
In the early 1920s, Honeywell began selling air purifers for air conditioning and heating.
After the Great Depression, the company focused on refrigeration and other commercial applications.
The company’s sales soared during the 1940s and 1950s.
HAPS was phased out in 1976, when the US Department of Energy banned its use in the power industry.
The Air Purification System (APS), which was introduced in 1978, was also phased out.
“The Air Purificator was a technological marvel, a device of genius, that has brought to the masses a new life,” wrote journalist John W. Campbell in The Times of London in February, 1979.
Today, air purifications have become increasingly common for many people, including older adults.
According to the US EPA, air filters are the second-most commonly used form of air pollution control, behind only smoke control.
The US Environmental Protection Agency says that about 90% of Americans are using at least one form of filtering, including water, soaps, soap bubbles, soap and shampoo.
Air purifiers are also among the most effective at reducing pollution and carbon monoxide, which can cause cancer.
A US Air Pollution Study found that more than half of the US population was exposed to air pollution in 2012, and about 70% of those exposed lived in cities.
A 2014 study from Harvard found that air pollution from new air purging systems increased the likelihood of a heart attack, stroke, and death from heart disease by 24%.
The APS was phased in in 1979, and the Air Purified Products (APP) was introduced a year later.
Currently, more than 100 million APPs are sold.
It’s important to note that while most people who live in a home have air purifies, some don’t.
According to The Economist, a growing number of Americans live in areas with few, if any, air quality controls.
In 2018, researchers found that the number of people who used a device that purifies air in their homes was growing, and many people were opting to use devices that can produce even higher levels of pollution.
Air purifying devices like the APP are designed to remove the toxic emissions from your home, but some people choose to remove their air filters entirely.
“Most of the APPs we looked at did not clean up pollutants like carbon monochlorine or benzene,” said researcher Chris Cairns, a research associate at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, in a Bloomberg Businessweek article.
“There is a significant number of APPs that are capable of doing both.”
The researchers also found that most APPs were not designed to clean up harmful particles, such as particles from your vehicle or cigarette smoke.
They also found air purifyrs can produce high levels of toxins that are hard to remove.
“The APPs do not clean your air or the air around you, so you don’t need to be concerned about what the device is doing,” CairNS said.
“It is a device with a purpose.”
But some people are concerned that their APPs may not be able to remove harmful particles from their home.
This is especially true for older adults, who often need to travel outside for work and social gatherings.
Dr. Andrew Pomerantz, a professor of preventive medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, told The Guardian that air purges for older people are more expensive than the APS, and that most people with older adults in their home have the devices in place to reduce pollution.
A spokesperson for Honeywell did not respond to a request for comment.
Despite its ubiquity, air cleaning has become a contentious issue in the US.
The EPA estimates that in the United States, there are more than 8 million air pollution incidents every year.
The EPA is asking people to report any incidents to the EPA, including if there is a report of a chemical spill, chemical leak, or a suspicious odor.
As of June 2018, more people in the U.S. were injured in air pollution related incidents than in any other incident category.
