What should you look for when buying an air purifier?
With the growing demand for air purifiers, various types of air purifiers have appeared in the market. Many friends don’t know much about home air purifiers. When choosing an air purifier, it is easy to fall into the trap of parameters and enter the mistake of blind purchase. Now let’s take a look at the mistakes in purchasing air purifiers.
Mistake 1, pay too much attention to appearance.
We buy air purifiers for home use, not for viewing. There are many air purifiers with a very beautiful design, but the filtering function is very poor. When we buy such products back and use them, we know that we have been fooled. Therefore, when purchasing an air purifier, the function should be given priority. Then choose the ones that look good.
Mistake 2, Filter integration.
Many people think that all air purifiers can remove formaldehyde, bacteria, viruses, PM2.5, and neglect to check the filter element when purchasing an air purifier. In fact, some air purifiers do not remove all the impurities and bacteria in the air as we think, so we must carefully check the instructions of the air purifier to see what the filters have and which impurities can be removed. Compared with other air purifiers, is there a filter missing?
Mistake 3, diversification of functions.
Nowadays, many air purifiers can not only purify, but also humidify. We do not recommend purchasing these multi-function air purifiers. Because the humidified water tank of the air purifier sometimes breeds bacteria, which will affect the purification quality of the air purifier. Air purifier with humidification function is usually expensive, and we don’t need to pay more for this humidification function. If humidification is required, we can purchase a humidifier.
Mistake 4, Air purifiers with HEPA are a good choice.
HEPA is divided into strict grades, and different grades of HEPA have different filtering effects. The higher the HEPA level, the smaller the filterable particle size and the better the filtering effect. Most of the air purifiers currently on the market use H11 and H12 HEPA, but it is well known that H13 is much better than H11 and H12. HEPA13 can filter dust particles and pollution sources with a filtration efficiency of 99.9%. It can effectively filter dust, fine hair, dead mites, pollen, smoke and harmful gases in the air. Therefore, an air purifier equipped with HEPA is not necessarily a good air purifier, depending on the level of HEPA used.
