Things To Consider When Buying An Air Purifier

Why Do I Need An Air Purifier?
When choosing an air purifier first consider your indoor air quality needs. If you have allergies you should choose an air purifier designed for allergy relief. High efficiency air filters are proven to eliminate 99.97% of common airborne allergens.

What Size Air Purifier Do I Need?
In order to choose the right size air purifier for your needs consider the square footage of the room you want to purify. If you have allergies or asthma and are looking for an air purifier to help manage your symptoms, you should also consider an air purifier’s air change per hour (ACH) rate. ACH refers to the number of times an air purifier can filter the entire volume of air in the treatment space each hour.

What Kind of Features Do I Need On My Air Purifier?
First, identify your air quality problem. Are you concerned about pet dander, mold or asthma? Air purifier brands vary greatly in their effectiveness for different problems. A moldy basement will require a different purifier that can remove both the airborne mold spores and the musky odor. A home with pets will need a purifier that can catch the dander. Identify the problem, determine the best technology for the problem and choose the right model for the room size. Some purifiers have added features that can include caster wheels, handles for easy mobility, digital controls, remote controls, multiple fan speeds, filter change indicators, programmable timers, air quality sensors and more.

Where Will I Put My Air Purifier?
We recommend that you place your air purifier in your bedroom since that's where you spend most of your time. In a very large space, such as your main living area, it is more effective to use multiple small units rather than one large one. This will enable you to operate the air purifiers at the lower quieter speeds. A whole house purifier is also a smart choice for ensuring that you have clean air for every room in your house. These units connect to your home's existing HVAC system enabling you to purify your indoors as you heat, cool or ventilate your home. 

How Much Maintenance Is Needed For My Air Purifier?
Filter changes depend on the brand and the model. Some air purifier models feature electronic indicators that tell you when to change the filters. If you're using an air purifier with a filter you should replace the filters at the manufacturer's recommended filter change intervals. Replacing the filters allows you to maintain the unit's high level of pollutant removal.
