How to Select Air Purifier
Choose according to place and use
Air cleaners can be roughly divided into “fan air cleaner”, “electrostatic air cleaner” and “negative ion air cleaner”. Before choosing a house, you should first find out which type of house you want.
Fan air purifier: high quality, low price, configurable multiple sets
In the body of the fan type air purifier, a fan capable of generating air flow is arranged. The fan blade can absorb the indoor air after rotating, and intercept the odor and dust through the filter screen, finally releasing the purified fresh air.
This type of air purifier is relatively cheap, and it doesn’t cost much to put one in every room. However, due to the need to regularly clean and replace the filter, not only time-consuming and laborious, but also the noise of fan operation is relatively large. Therefore, they also have certain requirements for the place to be placed.
Electrostatic air purifier: low noise and lasting effect
The purification principle of electrostatic air purifier is to remove dirt by electrostatic force. Because the internal filter is not easy to plug, so the machine runs very quietly. In addition, the dust collection efficiency through plasma action is high, so the effect of purification is longer.
Compared with fan-type air purifiers, the price is slightly higher and the cost of purchasing more than one is higher. If you choose this type, it is recommended to place it only in the children’s room, living room or other important places.
Negative ion air purifier: toilet, car and other narrow space is the most appropriate
Negative ion air purifier can produce negative ions, and thus achieve the purpose of purifying air. Ions put into the air can effectively remove bacteria and odor, creating a fresh air environment. However, due to the compact shape of the air purifier, its effectiveness will also be limited by space. It is suggested that the air purifier should be placed in toilets, porches, cars and other places where the space is not large.
“Applicable area” is better than the actual area.
The “applicable area” of air purifier refers to the maximum indoor area suitable for use of air purifier, which is usually calculated by “”. If you want the air purifier to play a role in the shortest time, you must choose the style of “applicable area” larger than the actual area.
The contents mentioned above are more suitable for people who pay attention to the speed of purification. But if you don’t have too much demand for purification speed, then choose an area-matched air purifier is enough.
The greater the maximum air volume, the faster the air circulation speed is.
The maximum wind power of an air purifier refers to how much air can be delivered by the air purifier. The larger the value, the easier it is to speed up the air circulation in the room. If you want to clean up the air quickly before you greet visitors, this function can be of great use.
In addition, in the spring and autumn, it is easy to bring outdoor dust into the house after opening windows for a long time. But the air purifier with high air volume can quickly remove all kinds of dust and dust in the house even after closing the window.
Confirm additional functions at the same time
Everyone purchases air purifiers for different purposes, so they want different functions. In addition to purifying the air, let’s see what additional functions the air purifier has.
Deodorizing function: to deal with smoke, pet odor
Odor sensor is a device that can detect indoor odor. It can sense odors from pets, garlic and smoke, and it will automatically run to start deodorizing. Most air purifiers can automatically adjust the operation intensity. If you have pets or smokers at home, you should choose an air purifier equipped with odor sensors.
Dust removal function: reduce indoor dust, filter pollen, reduce PM2.5
Dust sensors can detect indoor dust. This device can remove dust and dust from windows and is very suitable for people who require high air quality.
In addition, this function not only can effectively eliminate PM2.5 in exhaust gas and air, but also can be used to filter pollen.
Dehumidification and humidification functions: corresponding to humidity and dry season
If the air purifier also has the functions of dehumidification and humidification, their utilization rate can not be underestimated. It not only eliminates the odor of indoor air drying during plum rain, but also protects against pollen during dry season and helps prevent colds. Although the price is on the high side, if you want to keep the room clean and refreshing, you might as well consider the air purifier with dehumidification and humidification functions.
Timing function: energy saving and electricity saving when going out or sleeping
