How do I choose the right air purifier for me?
We recommend considering 3 main factors:
- Room size:Air purifiers are designed for specific room sizes, and are tested and rated accordingly. Always buy an air purifier whose recommended room size is the same or larger than your room.
- Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR):CADR is an established standard rating by the independent Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM). It measures the efficiency of an air purifier, taking into account room size and the volume of clean air produced per minute. The removal of dust, pollen and smoke, which are the three most common indoor air pollutants, is rated. The higher the CADR, the better the air purifier. Pay special attention to the value for the pollutant that affects you the most.
- Number of air changes:To ensure clean air with every breath, the air purifier must have the capacity to clean the total air volume in your room five times in an hour.
Other important factors to take into account are filter quality, noise level and energy consumption.
