    Air Purifier Buying Guide

    air purifier buying guide

    Hello and welcome to our buying guide. In this buying guide, you will know how you can buy a good air purifier so that you can save your money from wastage. We will help you to buy a good air purifier

    What to Consider While Shopping for an Air Purifier

    FILTER REPLACEMENT COST-After the purchase of an air purifier, you have to spend some more money on filter replacement.

     Different filters have different replacement time and cost. So buy an air purifier according to your budget. But you can use the filter for a long time

    But you do not have to do much research about it, You can directly check on amazon.

     CADR- stands for ‘clean air delivery rate’

    Before the purchase, you must check the CADR rating of that air purifier, because these ratings tell you how much clean air your purifier can give you.

    It focuses on 

    • Dust
    • Pollen
    • Tobacco smoke

    CADR rating should be 2/3 of the room size 

    Example-

    If your room area- 300 sq ft

    So CADR rating of your air purifier must be 

    Dust (>200)/ pollen (>200)/smoke (>200)- SO i can say that this is  perfect CADR for the room of 300 sq ft

    ACH stands for ‘air changes per hour’

    This means how often does your air purifier clean your room air in an hour

    Example – 5x 4x 3x 

    • 5x – it will clean your room 5 times in one hour
    • 4x- it will clean your room 4 times in one hour
    • 3x- it will clean your room 3times in one hour

    If Air Purifier has many good features but its CADR and ACH ratings are not good then it will not be of any use.

    ROOM COVERAGE – Area cleaned by purifier

    If the purifier has an AHAM seal, then you can trust its given room coverage
