How To Choose Air Cleaners - Articles Surfing
Because there are so many different types of air cleaners, all of which are designed to remove different things from the air, you must ensure that you are getting what you really need. Choosing the right air cleaner for your needs involves doing the following:
' Getting a cleaner that removes the particles most likely to be in your home, that is, get a filter that removes pollens and animal dander if allergies are your problem. A cleaner that removes cigarette smoke will not help with these pollutants. Therefore, if your need is to kill bacteria then an ultraviolet air cleaner is your choice; if removing particles is what you are after, then consider a HEPA filter system.
' Make sure that the cleaner you buy is the right size for the room you want to use it in.
' Understanding noise level is important, especially if the filter is being used in a bedroom or baby's nursery
' Try to find out what the air flow is like; this is the amount of time it takes the device to remove pollutants from a specific area
' With the high cost of energy, it is important to check the energy rating. Check the wattage used as the higher the wattage, the greater your electricity bill will be
' Maintenance and cost of replacing components such as filters, can add up depending on the type of system you buy
' Like with any new purchases, it's good to look at the warranty on your new air cleaner as a good warranty can save you money
There are other factors that should be considered when selecting an air cleaner such as the clean air delivery rating CADR). This is a rating given based on how much clean air the device delivers in a given time. This rating is assigned by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers.
