One of the major parts of an air purifier is its filters, which determine the quality of air that the purifier would be able to output. The more the number of filters an air purifier has, the better quality of air it will be able to output. You should take note that the air purifier comes with a multi-filtration system, that purifies impurities like PM10, PM2.5, VOC, and more. A benefit would be if the air purifier comes with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter that sift out 0.1micron particles, allergens, and more.
Ease of changing filters
While more filters help with better air purification, it makes the changing process much more complex. So it is easier if you purchase an air purifier with a quick-release mechanism for the air filters. Additionally, if you get a set of integrated filters, it would make the job much easier.
While an air purifier will provide you with keeping your health in check, it will be of no use, if the purifier does not let you sleep. A lot of air purifiers make loud noises while at work, which will keep you up in the night until you get used to them. It is better to look for air purifiers that have a low dB output and also come with a night mode or a silent mode.
An air purifier is another gadget that you will be placed in your home that will take electricity to run. Considering that you will have to run it the whole day, the bills will rack up. Due to which investing in a good air purifier that comes with a good energy-saving rating is recommended, to help you save on your electricity bill.
