Air Purifiers are designed to cover closed spaces, typically about 700 sq. ft of area. If you are wondering why some air purifiers don’t seem adequate, it’s because some don’t have enough filters. And because air borne diseases are a constant threat these days, a good air purifier is highly recommendable, but what kind of filters do you need for your air purifier?
Do we need different types of filters for the purifier to be effective? A good amount of filtration is needed to ensure the safety of your family’s health, especially in places with bad air quality.
So what are the main types of essential filters, and why are they essential?
These filters significantly help filter the air because they assist in extending the time between filter cleanings or changes and maintaining the air purifier’s functionality and efficiency. Pre-filters do this by trapping large particles before reaching the air purifier’s primary filters.
2. HEPA Filters
High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) removes more than 99% of particles that are 0.3 microns and are more prominent. This makes air purifiers with HEPA filters ideal for removing small pet dander particles, dust mite residue, and pollen from your air.
If you or any family is allergic to dust and pollen, an air purifier with a HEPA filter will help lessen allergic reactions, especially during pollen season (flu season).
3. Carbon Filter
Activated Carbon removes odors and chemicals from the air. They can be from kitchen odors, cigarette smoke, paint fumes, pet odors, and other volatile organic compound sources. The more Carbon in each filter, the more odor is removed.
If you want your home to smell extra clean, an air purifier with a carbon filter is essential.
If you have new health problems after moving, remodeling, refurbishing, or conducting pesticide application, this could mean an indoor air quality problem.
Other sources of indoor air quality concerns include:
- Toxic household cleaning products
- Poor ventilation
- Pressed-wood products
Look for smelly or stuffy air, condensation on walls or windows, or mold growth around your home. If you are currently experiencing bad air quality in your homes, it is best to look into the core of the problem.
An efficient air purifier is one of the best solutions to this dilemma. The CubeOn Air Purifier we have for sale has a 5-in-1 HEPA Filter with UV Sterilization that releases negative ions to freshen the indoor air while filtering over 99.97% of all air pollutants. These ions electrically charge other particles, causing them to collect on surfaces like the floor and ceiling.
They may also function against dangerous microorganisms, like viruses or mold spores. Most of our users use ionizers to clear small particles from the air and enhance indoor air quality.
