What Does An Air Purifier Do?

An air purifier is a device which removes bacteria from the air in a room. These devices are beneficial to allergy sufferers and asthmatics, and at reducing smoke. The core technology used in air purifiers is the filter. The filter is like a mesh which blocks the harmful particles and bacteria and allows air to pass. So mainly the filters clean the air, the of the machine does take care of air inflow and outflow, the inflow and outflow rate depends upon the blower and filter capacity to purify the air.

There different types of air purifiers –

– HEPA Technology

-Activated Carbon Technology

– UV technology

These are Features of an air purifier-

-IONIZER

-FAN

-Servicing Indicator-

-programmable timer

Pros-

– They’re versatile, so most of the room air purifier weigh from 10 to 20 pounds, have a handle.

-Air purifiers which are heavy have wheels for easy mobility.

 – They have a high-proficiency particulate air (HEPA) channel, which can catch ultrafine particles.

* Remember: Most of the HEPA filters should replace every year, a cost that may approach the value of the air cleaner, however, a couple of models are present with cleanable HEPA channels.*

CONS-

-Some Versatile Air purifier models utilize either electrostatic-precipitator or ionizer innovation could create some ozone, which causes inflammation in lungs.

-Air purifiers that are good at eliminating dust are not that precise in getting rid of the bad odor, and vice versa.

-Some air purifiers release excess amount of ions in the air and even ozone gas which can be harmful.

-It is complicated for such appliances to free the air from gases and bad odors.

-They have high maintenance.

Understanding the different Air Purifier Technology-

HEPA TECHNOLOGY –

High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA), is a type of air filter. Filters meeting the HEPA standard have many applications. HEPA filters are designed to target much smaller pollutants and particles. These particles are trapped (they stick to a fiber) through a combination of the following three mechanisms: Interception, Impaction, diffusion.

Pros-

-Most effective.

-Removing up to 99.97% of particles.

-Trusted worldwide.

Cons-

The Regular filter replacements which mean an increase in maintenance cost.

Brands which provides HEPA technology air purifiers are –

Alen

AllerAir

Austin Air

we recommend these air purifiers to folks who are interested in buying this HEPA technology air purifiers.

 

ELECTROSTATIC Air Purifiers –

Electrostatic air cleaners are highly efficient filtration devices that use electrostatic attraction to remove fine particulate matter such as dust and cigarette smoke from the air. The charged particles are then attracted to and trapped by a series of flat collector plates that are oppositely charged, with the particles literally “sticking” to the collection plates until it is was removed manually.

Pros-

No filter replacement That means cost-effective.

Cons-

-It only Eliminates 30% of airborne particles.

-Poor capability of cleaning the air in an enclosed space.

Brands-

Ionic Breeze

-Pure-Ion Pro

-Crane

NOTE – *We do not recommend this product do our folks because this air purifier is inefficient in eliminating airborne particles*.

OZONE Air Purifiers

Pros –

It Eliminates heavy odors.

-It kills bacterias, mold, and other microorganisms.

Cons-

-It has extremely dangerous lung irritants.

-It is restricted by the state if California.

-It is unsafe for residential use.

 

BRANDS-

-Air-Zoned

-EdenPURE

-Ultra-Pure

-Crystal Air

NOTE – *We do not recommend this product do our folks because this air purifier has extremely dangerous lung irritants*.

Here are some features of Room Air Purifier :

Fan:

Most room air cleaners use a fan to suck in air for filtration.

Service indicator:

A choked air cleaner works inefficiently. This feature let you know when your air purifier needs a filter replacement.

Programmable Timer:

These controls and allow you to set the purifier to run a few hours before you’ll be using a room, or turn it off without a manual effort.

Carry handle:

Makes it easy to move the unit from room to room.

The number of speed:

The unit adjusts to your air-cleaning needs—lower when you are sleeping or working and need quiet, higher when it’s prime pollen time.

Ionizer:

If a unit has an ionizer, it’s essential that it not produce ozone. It is Because Ozone is a possible lung irritant.

Remote control:

Let you quickly adjust settings from across the room.

Dirt sensor:

 The unit automatically adjusts fan speed to the level of dirt or dust in the air.

Washable pre-filter:

A washable—and reusable—pre-filter collects large particles; if it’s washable, it is cost effective. However, many of our higher-rated models did not have this option.
