Air purifiers for your home (part 2)

Purchasing tips and tricks

Air purifiers have the price range from below $100 to more than $1,000. The critical difference tends to be the amount of air (the number of square feet) the device can effectively purify. Many models are designed for staying on the floor. It is possible to find tabletop models as well as wall-mounted designs for your air filtration.

When buying a portable air cleaner entails, go for one which is sized for the room that you will use it. Be sure you read the product descriptions with care to confirm that you bring home an air filtration system large enough to fit your room, yet remember that a bigger unit usually uses more energy as well.

There are several ways to get confident that you are selecting a good air purifier. For example, you can see the abbreviation as well as value for CADR on the packaging of an air purifier, which is short for “clean air delivery rate.” This measure shows how fast the air purifier is capable of delivering clean air. Generally, the higher the CADR means, the faster the air pollutants are eliminated. However, some manufacturers have told that this lab testing method should not be an accurate simulation of the way air filtration would perform in an average home.

Also, HVAC filters and air purifiers are measured by the least efficiency reporting value scale – here, 1 is the lowest rating, and 20 is the highest. HEPA filters rate between 20 and 17. If you are looking for an air purifier, find a higher score than 13 if you want to solve severe asthma as well as allergy issues.
