Thinking of buying an air purifier but confused about whether every room will need a separate purifier?
Be sure that you don’t really need an air purifier for every room. And do consider the following factors before spending on separate purifiers for separate rooms:
- The number of rooms in the house which you regularly occupy and therefore need an air purifier for.
- The kind of air quality problems you need to tackle.
- Calculating the room size in square feet so you can match it with the correct model of purifier.
- Your budget.
While the above conditions may vary in different homes, on an average every house has 5 rooms. So the question you need to ask yourself is how much will you be able to afford to get air purifier coverage for multiple rooms? It is important to arrive at an estimate as buying cheap, low-spec air purifiers can be even worse than having no air purifiers at all. Remember to choose quality over quantity every time – a decision that will save you headaches in the long run. Moreover, ask yourself – what’s the use of placing a purifier in an area you don’t use? So don’t be worried about rooms that are rarely entered into or occupied..
The other important thing to remember is the kind of relief you need. A wide variety of contaminants or their combinations require a “real” air purifier that will permanently remove them from your air. Other problems such as dust mites will need a High-Efficiency Particulate Air Filter (HEPA) filter for removal. On the other hand, odors and airborne chemical substances can be cleansed successfully with an activated carbon filter. Similarly, people with allergies and asthma problems or those with pets need specific types of filters to rid their indoor air of these allergens. The basic minimum you need is a HEPA model that gives you sufficient room coverage. If a purifier doesn’t specify room size, you can safely assume that it is generally good for a small room.
If you suffer from colds or particular health issues, you may consider buying a purifier that has a germ-killing feature such as an ionizer or ozone generator. Others come with advanced convenience features like self-off timers, a quiet mode, smartphone control and air quality reports.
What an air purifier will not do however is cool the room. That is the job of an air cooler. Air purifiers don’t come with any air cooling mechanism. They resemble fans in that they use electrical, mechanical, or hybrid air filters to circulate air within a closed space.
However, many people are mistaken as they keep getting a breeze of cool air when the air purifier is running.This happens because the purifier acts like a fan. The cooling feeling depends on the air purifier’s air delivery rate (CADR), which usually varies between 80-300 CFM but is significantly lower than the CFM of a ceiling or desk fan which is 1,000 or more. And just as you would keep a fan on all day and night during summer, you can also keep running a purifier 24 x 7 as they don’t run the risk of overheating, breaking down, or releasing harmful byproducts. Remain certain that the air purifier will purify the surrounding air of the room it is in by eliminating 99.97% of contaminant particles.
So finally, you brought home an air purifier. But how would you know if it’s working alright?
Here are some checkpoints to look out for:
Finally, there are some simple rules to follow to keep your air purifier in good condition and make it work for a longer period of time:
- Read the user manual carefully. Note the instructions carefully to use the air purifier effectively.
- While using the purifier keep your doors and windows closed.
- Set the timer on your purifier so it turns off automatically when you are not around.
- Check your purifier’s recommended hours of use and don’t exceed the stipulated time limit.
- Make sure to clean the pre-filter once or twice in a week to get better results.
- It is important you replace the HEPA filter once every six months because filters that get highly contaminated retain in them harmful pollutants that can harm your health.
- For a new air purifier that you have just purchased, don’t forget to remove the plastic cover of the filters inside the purifier.
