Things to consider while buying a Air Purifier | Reviews
"Buying a air purifier is always worth it; however, don't forget to keep certain things in mind."
Air purifiers are a device that removes the contaminants or allergens from your room promoting an improved indoor air quality. If you are someone who suffers from allergies and is asthmatics, air purifiers will be best for you. Air purifiers remove the harmful allergens, smoke, mold, and particles from your room.
Buying an air purifier is always worth it. With air purifiers, in just 30 mins to 2 hours you can get fresh air in your room. The filter-based air purifiers are best as they won't do any harm to your health rather help you breathe fresh allergen-free air. However, not every air purifier you see is worth it; so, in order to make your purchase worthy, keep the following things in mind while buying an air purifier.
First of all, you need to know the size of your room prior to the purchase. Measure the area in square feet as the air purifier suitability depends upon the area of the room. Measure the area, then seek out for the air purifiers that apt the size of the room. Besides, allocate the area where you wish to place the air purifier as they are not small devices and will take up a lot of space off your room. If you plan on moving the device more often, go for the portable and light-weighted devices.
Do not forget to check the type of the filter as not every filter can filter or get rid of the allergens and other particles. The most reliable and commonly used filter is HEPA aka High-Efficiency Particulate Air. The models with HEPA rated filters can get rid of 99.97% of the airborne particles like allergens, mold, dust, and animal dander.
Not all technology is healthy for you and your family. So, check out the technology prior to the purchase. Avoid the air purifiers with UV filtration and ionization based purifiers as they emit ozone which is harmful to your health and may lead to respiratory problems.
Portability and weight
If you plan on shifting your air purifiers often, then avoid the struggle of shifting the heavily weighted air purifiers and buy a portable air purifier. Though the portable purifiers are smaller in size, they are as efficient as the bigger ones and will clean the air in your room with the same efficiency. They don't take up much space off your room and are quite cheaper compared to the large ones that take up most space in your room.
Noise and Energy rating
Every air purifiers make noise, but if you do not want a noisy environment then do check the noise levels. The ideal noise level for a fan running at top speed is 35db. So, check the noise level and the reviews of other users on the online sites before the purchase. Many purifiers also come with sleep mode which reduces the noise level to its maximum extent.
Besides, check the energy rating of the air purifier as well. The models with higher energy star are more efficient and use less amount of electricity. Save energy, save the environment, and go for the higher energy star rated air purifiers.
The filters of the air purifiers must be replaced quite often and the purifier must be maintained quite often; so, don't forget to check the after-sale service of the company.
