Investing in an air purifier? Wow….it’s undoubtedly a great choice! An air purifier benefits everyone in the house, especially those with allergies or chemical sensitivities.
With plenty of brands available on the market, choosing the best air purifier can seem overwhelming. You may not get your head to settle for the right one you need for your home, unless you consider some important things (of course) to buy the one you’re looking forward to.
Let’s get started….
An air purifier, also known as an air cleaner, is a device that can not only detect but remove all kinds of pollutants in the air. But there are some devices that are made to filter specific particles better than others.
Let’s take an example of a home with pets. In such a home you’ll find air purifiers that will target pollen, fur and germs while being not much effective when it comes to removing foul odours in the home. Thus, it becomes important for you to know the biggest contributions to poor air quality in your home before making that final call for the best air purifier.
2.Size and Power
All air purifiers usually have room coverage ratings that are measured in square feet. Before you begin the comparison of types and prices of air purifiers, it’ll be wise if you take the measurements of the room in which you’re likely to use the air purifier.
By doing so, you’ll be sure that you’re buying the one with the suitable power as well as size to work in an effective manner. Don’t you forget to take the height of the ceiling into consideration? Also, it’s important for you to consider whether adjoining rooms have large doors or entries that are left open most of the time. In such cases, buying a sturdy air purifier system will be suitable for your home.
Air purifiers come with running costs, which means that it’s not just the power consumption. There are several units that require regular filter or bulb replacement (usually happens every 6 months to 12 months) to keep the device operating smoothly. There are some that come with permanent or washable filters.
Does your unit require replacement of the filter? Then it becomes a must for you to follow this for keeping the device to work the way it should be.
There are air purifiers that come equipped with several features, so you need to decide what kind of features you need on your device (air purifier). Added fetures comprise of caster wheels, programmable timers, air quality sensors, filter change indicators and so on. These features improve the performance of the air purifier.
5.Strong Odour Removal
If the primary purpose of the air purifier is to eliminate odours, then air purifiers that use ozone, carbon or oxidants will play a vital role and are necessary. HEPA and other air filters don’t have the ability to remove most particles that result in odours. However, ozone or oxidants can eliminate or reduce a majority of odour-causing particles.
