A Review on Air Sterilizer for Purification of Air Using UV Light and Filters
Keywords:Filters, UV Light, COVID, Pollution
In this review paper, we mainly focus on the working of air conditioner and the required development needed for the sake of human comfort. Day by day the requirement of air conditioner is increasing because the temperature is increasing rapidly. Along with the air conditioner the quality of the air must be improved in order to sort out health related issues.Impurity of air is increasing due uneven human activities. In order to purify the air, the air conditioner must be developed in such a way that different type of filters such as Manganese Dioxide filter, HEPA Filter, Electrostatic Filter must be attached to trap various types of pollution causing elements. In order to kill germs, the UV radiations must be introduced to kill the disease causing germs and pathogens for the sake of purification of air. Along with the purified air the energy must also be used efficiently, for that, IoT must be implemented to ease the work and to save energy.
