Breathe Easy : 5 Air Purifiers That Will Help

Needless to say, air purifiers are the need of the hour. While you may have heard mixed takes on how effective they actually are, we always say if it doesn’t hurt and could help, why not?

 

An air purifier is essentially nothing but a set of filters that work on the air in a space. Like a bunch of other filters we use in our everyday life, (hey we even use them in our emails), air purifiers simply work to keep the air around you cleaner.

 

The proof lies in the filter. Most purifiers work with three filters – a “pre-filter”, a carbon-activated middle filter, and the innermost “High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance”, or HEPA filter, whose intricate honeycomb structure captures finer particulates and takes anything between 15 to 30 minutes to clear the air, and also continues recirculation while on. A purifier should be left on as long as you’re present in a room; they typically consume between 20 to 50 watts, so it’s not a major draw on your power bill.

 

How to choose:

  • Choose one that is appropriate for your room size; they work best with closed doors and windows
  • Choose one that has a built in humidifier; this will save you from feeling dehydrated while in the room
  • Other features you can consider are the timer, sleep mode (quiet operation), child lock, and air quality monitor (which flashes from red to green to indicate the current quality of air)

 

Now that you know what to look for, here are our 6 recommendations, with specs, to help you make an informed decision.
