Do you mop the floor regularly and clean everything periodically? Well if so are you sure that your home is clean and does not contain any harmful substances. Most of you will bet that everything is clean and tidy but the fact is everything doesn’t look like what it seems to be.
How about air quality inside your house?
Even if you maintain your house in apple-pie order your home plays host to small particles like dust, allergens, pollens and chemicals. These are basically irritants as far as our respiratory tracts are considered so it is very important to keep a check on their levels indoors.
It is not possible to chuck out every unwanted particle out of your house but you can still reduce the level by making use of devices that are designed to purify the air. Air purifiers are specially designed devices that can control the air quality by trapping unwanted chemicals, toxins and dust particles inside them. Most of the health practitioners are recommending the use of air purifiers to control and prevent respiratory illness of course as a secondary back up method.
So when you choose to buy an air cleaner you need to check for few points.
Buy an air purifier according your room size so that it can work efficiently to clean the air rather than buying something which doesn’t suit your room requirements. You can’t expect your purifier to clean a large area unless otherwise it is a large built one. So kindly ask your dealer about room size.
There are many technologies employed when it comes to air purifiers so carefully chose the one which will suit your needs. There are mainly five types and they are HEPA, UV technology, activated carbon, ozone and ionizer. Among these HEPA filters are preferred most as they can trap smallest of the particles effectively.
You should enquire about the CADR (CLEAN AIR DELIVERY RATE) for the unit you wish to buy as that can indicate the effectiveness of the product and it is an important indicator that you must not ignore if you want to know the filtering efficiency.
Air purifiers do emit noise and getting a unit which does not emit sound does not indicate that it is good or bad. You can try getting one with a low noise but I would say check for other factors than giving weightage to this constraint.
Pricing is also a very important matter that should be checked and compared for as installing an air purifier requires replacement of the filters and other parts periodically. This will incur additional costs so you should get straight with all your queries with the dealer before investing your pennies.
Electronic air purifiers pull certain amount of electricity so buy a product which is energy efficient probably with star ratings and also enquire its consumption rate.
