The Purifier Type That Suits Your Need

Air purifiers help in keeping the air clean and get rid of it’s impurities. Since there are a number of air purifiers in the market currently, ranging in size, price and quality, have a good read of the popular types below;


1)    Hepa Filter Air Purifiers
Filter based air purifiers operate by “filtering” particles and allergens by size. Air is pressed from a fan through the filter and this one traps tiny particles. The standard air purifiers make use of the application of cloth type filter to separate out the dust particles. HEPA or High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting filters are considered the best filters and could trap 99% of the particles that are 0.3 micros or larger in size. This device usually comes with a replaceable filter. Although a HEPA purifier can trap most suspended particles, it is ineffective against chemical fumes, odors and gases. Air purifiers that make use of filters are perfect at capturing allergens; however lack the capability to trap smaller particles, like chemical gases, odors, smoke, etc.

2)    UV Light Purifiier
UV Light Purifiers also known as Ultraviolet radiation functions by using an Ultra Violet light which sterilizes different organisms. It is extremely beneficial on viruses, bacteria, and mold. The UV lamp put together with a filter trap the particles, and then the UV light sterilizes and renders the particles safe.

3)    Ozone air purifiers
Ozone air purifiers function like an ionic but it is most beneficial on odors. Ozone can be a extremely reactive, unstable molecule that oxidizes anything it comes in contact with. The ozone purifiers result in chemical reaction that breaks down the toxins, but the pollutants turn into other pollutants, which is the disadvantage to these machines. It is recommended that you run the equipment on low, and then open the window to release the ozone.’

4)    Carbon Air Purifiers
Carbon air purifiers use activated carbon for air filter. The carbon bonds with the particles and odors when the air passes through the filter. This air purifier can capture smaller airborne dust in comparison with a HEPA filter. The bigger the carbon filter, the more substances it’ll be able to absorb and the longer it will keep on working.

5)    Ionic air purifiers
Ionizer air purifiers work by electrically charging the air with positive or negative charges and after that catches the formerly charged particles with collector plates which have opposite charge. Most ionizers are fanless and noiseless, but since that they move much lower amounts of air with the collecting plates, making them less powerful at cleaning the air. Even though they don’t kill viruses and airborne bacteria, they’ll catch most particles.

Before buying your air purifier you have to make sure it suits your requirements and conduct your own research.
