Air purifiers, our health allies

Not only people who suffer from asthma and allergies are exposed to environmental irritants such as an excess of pollen and chemical pollutants (smoke, ash and pesticides in the air), but also sudden temperature changes caused by the climate. Everyone, including those in good health, can be affected to a greater or lesser extent at some point in time, especially in places where atmospheric conditions are influenced by air pollution.

In view of this situation, prevention is essential in order to take care of our health and air purifiers are a necessary tool to be able to enjoy an environment free of contaminants. With these few lines, we are eager to give you the best advice and a practical guide, so you can properly choose the device that suits you and your needs best.

What is an air purifier?

Air purifiers are devices that are able to eliminate pollutants suspended in the air of a room.

The devices that are currently sold are very different from those available years ago, which merely channelled the air through a fabric or paper filter. Current air purifiers are responsible for leaving the air we breathe in our room clean. They fulfil the same role, but with more efficient technology.

By simply connecting them to an electric outlet, they can measure and process the air, eliminating up to 99% of the dirt in the environment, eradicating this way the agents compromising our health. They combine diverse methods of purification such as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation, ozone ions, filters and activated carbon.

Now you know the importance of acquiring this device to purify the air in your home. Therefore, we want to guide you by offering a definitive guide to buy the best for you.

Practical tips

There are certain factors you must take into account when buying the purifier you need. To begin with, you have to know that not always the most expensive device is the most suitable one. The real need you have will be your best direction in order to purchase the one that best suits you. That's why we offer some tips here:

  • Cleaning capacity. All purifiers give it in cubic or square metres. This is connected to the maximum volume or area of ​​the room to be cleaned. In other words, for the air purification process to be optimal, the cleaning capacity must not be less than the area to be covered. So, cleaning the environment of a 50 square-metres room is not the same as cleaning the environment of one that is 100 square metres.
  • Power. This factor determines the speed used by our purifier to clean a room if the size is appropriate to the device specifications. The higher the power, the faster and more efficiently the cleaning will be achieved, generating considerable savings in electricity spending. However, if the room exceeds the established indications, the power becomes an irrelevant issue as the device will take much longer to perform the job, which will continue with difficulty until the environment is free of impurities, and all this with a higher energy cost.
  • Filter quality. There are several types of filters but definitely, the one that offers the highest level of air cleanliness and makes a difference among quality purifiers is the HEPA filter or High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter. This filter is capable of catching all particles that are equal to or greater than 0.3 microns with up to a 99.97% of effectiveness.

Important: this type of filter increases the price of the purifier considerably. Cheaper purifiers using other types of filters can very satisfactorily fulfil the objective of achieving pure air according to our purpose. Hence the assessment we must make of our needs beforehand.

Where to get the best air purifier?

Offers are abundant and the places where we can get the purifier that best suits our needs are at hand or a click away depending on what is more convenient for us.

You can get unbeatable offers and discounts from renowned electronics stores and home departments such as John Lewis and Argos, as well as a wide variety of purifiers and different models to meet our taste and expectations. You will have access to the most important brands.

For those who prefer online shopping, eBay and Amazon are the ideal options. Being able to choose from the comfort of your computer and assess the benefits delivered by the product you wish to buy is a great point in favour. You can also compare prices, read opinions and evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of the different devices as a very useful technique to make a good purchase.
