Here’s an interesting idea. Combine a negative ion generator with an energy efficient bulb and you get this air freshening ionic bulb.
It works by generating dust and allergen neutralizing negative ions using a special air purifying ion emitter that gets its power from the light’s own energy.
These negative ions attach themselves to pollutants like pollen, floating pet dander, cooking and bathroom smells, cigarette smoke and even airborne bacteria and viruses and make them drop to the floor where they are removed with the next vacuum.
Alongside its ionizing properties, this light bulb is also low energy as it uses only 5 watts of electricity but is equivalent to a 50 watt regular incandescent bulb.
The light these ionic bulbs emit is described as a strong yet soft white and, from the reviews, people seem very happy with them.
Clean and freshen the air in your home with this long lasting ionic light bulb. More reviews and specifications on Amazon.
Healthy CFL Ion Light Bulb
Negative ions have been shown to improve blood flow to the brain and increase serotonin levels.
They also greatly reduce allergens like pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores and cigarette smoke, as well as kitchen and bathroom odors and even airborne viruses and bacteria.
The Healthy CFL is an negative ionizer and long lasting CFL light bulb in one. It has an approximate 10,000 hour lifespan and comes with a 2 year warranty.
These two 7 watt bulb produces a pleasant rather than bright light that is very similar to a conventional 25 watt incandescent bulb, yet uses 75% less electricity.
The light bulb’s built-in ionizer generates 1,000,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter and is particularly beneficial for people with allergies or asthma.
This is a four pack of ionizing light bulbs and would best suit rooms that don’t require an overly bright light, such as your lounge room or bedroom.
