Air purifiers are vital home and office appliances during this era of extreme air pollution. Sitting back in your couch, knowing that your household (and pets) is breathing clean air will give you peace of mind, especially if you are certain that your machine effectively purifies the air.

How an air purifier works

This machine is equipped with a series of fans, which suck in air from outside into your room, pass it through multiple filters which sieve dust particles, pollen grains, smoke particles and any toxic airborne elements, and passes the purified air into the room.

When buying an air purifier, you need to observe several measures that will guide you into purchasing the best unit for the most convenient budget.

Brand name

When purchasing a purifier that effectively purifies the air in your home, you need to choose from an established company. These firms have a reputation to protect, and have been tried and tested. These are least likely to disappoint on the quality and effectiveness of their appliances. Going for a new or upcoming company, which has not withstood the test of time can be quite risky. You may need to check customer reviews of the air purifier, on the company website, and on social media platforms, so that you make an informed decision.

Warranty period

An excellent air purifier, which its manufacturer has total confidence in, will most likely have a long warranty period, which means in case of a malfunction you can get a replacement free of charge, or servicing. The shorter the warranty period the less the confidence the manufacturer has in their product. Before purchase, read and understand the terms and conditions concerning the warranty, and fill a warranty form.

Power consumption

We live in a time when every ounce of energy needs to be conserved thus, an air purifier that consumes less power and effectively purifies the air will be the real deal. Comparison of specifications on different air purifiers, power consumption, the number of rooms they can serve is important. Since this device will be running for long hours, you need the economical type to avoid shooting the power bill.

Appearance and portability

These should be the least of your worries but they are important. The color, shape and design of your air purifier should be considered too. If your living room has a specific color theme, you may need to choose a coinciding color to prevent a scenario where a black air purifier will stick oddly in your entirely white living room. Size and portability are important too just incase you move to another house, or it breaks down and you need to ferry it to the nearest dealer for repair/servicing.

We all deserve to breathe the cleanest air. Investing in an appliance that effectively purifies the air a good investment in your health, and that of your household. Breathing clean air minimizes the risk of exposure to airborne allergens, and harmful particles like cigarette smoke. An air purifier will have you covered, albeit its restrictions to indoor use only.
