When it’s springtime in Broussard, LA, it can be important to select the best air purifier to keep at home. You are in luck. We are going to go over several important considerations you should keep in mind when selecting the best air purifier to use for relieving spring allergies.
Comparing Purifiers’ Cost and Effectiveness
The first thing to keep in mind when you are shopping for an air purifier is how much the replacement filters might cost. This is a cost that can truly add up over time. Some air purifiers have filters you can clean, so no replacement filter will be necessary. This can help save you money.
Generally, pleated filters should be replaced every six to 12 months. For activated carbon filters, the replacement schedule is every three months. Filters can cost up to $50 if they have carbon that removes odors. For big air purifiers, filters range anywhere from $20 to $199.
Activated carbon filters can remove odor-causing molecules directly from the air. They also may capture some gases. Mechanical filters, on the other hand, remove larger particles from the air, including dust, pollen, and some spores. For that reason, mechanical filters are better for allergies.
Noise and Room Size
We know that indoor air quality is important. It is also important to take into account both the noise level of an air purifier and the size of the area you expect the air purifier to clean the air. It may be an issue down the line if it is too noisy.
