BEST AIR PURIFIER to buy for your home

 

Air is the necessity of every living being. We all are familiar with the respiration process. It is our duty to ensure that our family must get the best quality of air to breath in. We all have heard the term air quality index(AQI). It is a measure of air quality used by the government agencies to know how polluted the air is.

Under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, National Air Quality Index was launched in the year 2014. There are 6 AQI categories namely good, satisfactory, moderately polluted, poor, very poor, severe.

  1. GOOD(0-50)                    :minimal impact

  2. SATISFACTORY(51-100) : may cause minor breathing problem for sensitive people

  3. MODERATE(101-200)      : may cause problem to for lung patients

  4. POOR(201-300)               : may cause problems and diseases to people on prolonged exposure

  5. VERY POOR(301-400)    : may cause lung and heart diseases to people

  6. SEVERE(401-500)       : may cause respiratory impact even on healthy people, also prone to serious lung and heart diseases.

Installing air purifier in home reduce the level of pollutants in air. An air purifier is a device that cleans the air within an area with more than 99% accuracy. It traps pollutants and microscopic particles that are mixed in air and may cause serious illness such as asthma, cardiovascular problems, lung cancer, illness to newborns and several allergies.

The air purifier can remove pollen, fungi, dust and dust mites, pet hair, aerosol like pesticides and other sprays, bacteria and viruses, tobacco smoke, chemical cleaners and household odors

AIR PURIFIER WORKING

The air purifier sucks the air from every corner pass it through various filters to clean it and throws it back within the room. There are various filters in the purifier :

  • Primary filter- the air first passes through this filter where large particles are trapped

  • Anti-bacterial HEPA filter-HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Absorber, this filter traps 99.97% of particles that are 0.3 microns in diameter. You can compare it's thickness from human hair which is 50-150 micron thick. This filter also removes bacteria and PM 2.5 particulates.

  • Carbon filter- The activated carbon filter removes odour and volatile organic compounds(VOCs).

  • UV Lamp- The ultra-violet rays have the ability to kill bacteria, virus and other micro-organisms.

  • Ionizer- When voltage is applied across the ionizer negative and positive charge flows in it. The negative ions are expelled to room that get attached to dust particles making it easier to trap in air filters.

 

NOTE:For best performance of the air purifier the air filters must be changed in every 9-12 months.
