Everyone wants their home to be in the best condition it can be for yourself and guests, it easier to relax and feel at home when you’re in a clean environment. An air purifier also comes in handy for those who have allergies to pollen, dust or animal hair and need those factors regulated at all times.
Before purchasing an air purifier diagnose where you can improve air quality yourself with a few simple steps such as vacuuming, smoking outside rather than in the home and minimizing smoke indoors in other ways too.
If you know absolutely nothing about air purifiers we would suggest paying close attention to the CADR ratings for each of the air purifiers that most interest you. If we had to isolate one factor this would be it.
CADR or clean air delivery rate is a measure by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers that measures efficient each device is at removing air pollutants and regulating the air. Look at this in combination with the air flow rate and you’re in good hands.
Another crucial element is the type of air filter used in the purifier, in this case HEPA filters are the most widely know mechanical filters with over 99% of pollen, mold, dust, animal hairs destroyed with the unique filtration system.
Most people use an air purifier for one of three reasons: allergies, smoking and pets. If you fall into the first category i.e suffering from allergies that need maintenance then the The Honeywell 50250-S purifier is the one we recommend.
A small compact device in white that’ll work through small to medium sized room quickly removing over 99.9% of pollutants to make your air cleaner and easier to breathe and recommended by doctors at that! Have peace of mind with a HEPA filter that has remained popular in the market for decades and for good reason. Look here for more purifiers aimed at allergy sufferers.
Another popular reason people buy air purifiers is for smokers, one of the most obvious pieces of advice we can offer is to simply smoke outside at all times. While this can help it doesn’t help the problem completely which is where the GermGuardian AC4825 comes in.
The germ guardian comes with a triple attack of HEPA and UV filters with specific odour reduction for smoke and pets. It’s a sleek compact device which can work its way around a room effectively that comes in black.
For Pet Owners
The next category is for those who suffer for pet allergies or have pets who hairs get everywhere. While we may love our pets and after all ‘dogs are a man’s best friend’ they also leave plenty of unpleasant smells and pollutants in the air for their human companions to breathe.
The Hamilton Beach TrueAir filter is specifically targeted to pet owners helping with unpleasant odours, hairs and other allergens at that. It uses the same HEPA filter as the ones above which remove move pollutants from your air and come in as the most cost effective for yearly replacements.
