Checklist for choosing the right air purifier

Clean air is our fundamental right. But, do you think we breathe in clean air? I’m sure the answer is no; unless you live in the mountains. We all know air pollution is a major cause of various health problems. Therefore, it’s imperative to breathe clean air. However, it’s not always possible to control the quality of air that we breathe in. But, sometimes it is; especially when you are at home or office. It is proven that indoor air presents the same health risks. The amount of biological and chemical contaminants polluting our homes is a major concern posed by various environmental agencies. Therefore, air purifiers are a must. Air filtration is essential for maintaining optimal air quality. It can reduce the amount of tobacco smoke, allergens, mold, dust, and more. You can make your home the sanctuary of clean air by installing air purifiers. But, how do you choose the right one? With the market being flooded with various types of air purifiers, finalizing one can be a daunting task.

Here’s a checklist that will help you buy the right air purifier for your home.

1. Air Filters: As the product’s primary function to clean air, air filters play a significant role. There are various types of air filters that purify the air. These filters cleanses the air of different types of bacteria, viruses, bad odour, pollen-based allergens, and more. The two important types of filters are:

  • a) HEPA Filters: The term HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air. A HEPA type air filter can capture 99% of particles that are 2 microns or larger. Therefore, always ensure that your air purifier is equipped with HEPA filter for full protection. Also, it is recommended to integrate a HEPA air filter as it’s the best for homes that have pets and children suffering from airborne allergies.
  • b) Streamer Discharge Technology: It is a six stage filtration process that decomposes and removes dust, odors, bacteria, and other undesirable airborne components. In the first stage, high speed electrons are discharged that enable decomposition and removal. In the second stage, dust is captured and bacteria and other allergens are removed. In the third stage, dust and pollen are electrically charged and then sent to the filter. In the fourth stage, these particles are absorbed by the electrically charged filter. In the fifth stage, bad odor and viruses are kept under control by photocatylict filter. In the last and sixth stage, formaldehyde and odors are decomposed. Therefore, making sure that you breathe in completely clean air. You can opt for Daikin air filters that are equipped with this highly advanced Streamer Discharge technology.

2. Room Size Matters: Air purifiers are highly effective if purchased according to the room size. Always consider the room size and area of coverage while selecting an air purifier. For instance, Daikin air purifier will work best for a room sized up to 46 meter square. It can purify 12 meter square are in approximately 9 minutes. On the contrary, if you buy a small air purifier for a large room, it will not function optimally and also require more maintenance.

3. Correct CADR: Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) is a rating given to air purifiers that indicate the volume of clean air delivered by the air purifiers. CADR rating is directly proportional to the size of the room; the larger the size of your room, higher the CADR rating. Given the variety of air purifiers in the market, CADR is an efficient way to choose the right one. Daikin air purifier has a CADR rating of 7 meter cube/ minute*.

4. Maintenance: Just like any other electronic appliance, air purifiers also require maintenance for uninterrupted performance. Since the air purifier cleans the air from a number of harmful particles; the filter needs regular cleaning. A clean filter ensures optimal functionality. Therefore, an air-purifier that’s easy to clean as well as equipped with a built-in reminder setting will be quite beneficial in the long run.

These are some of the important factors that one should keep in mind while shopping for an air purifier. Apart from these basic elements, the marketplace is loaded with air purifiers, which feature various additional benefits such as a display unit, 3-D air flow, child lock and Titanium apatite photocatalytic filter. So, bring an air purifier to your home and give you loved the goodness of clean air.
