HEPA Air Purifiers Useful Facts

Mar 27, 2008
Many of us look to ways of improving our quality of life. Many choose to buy only organic food and others decide to attend the gym regularly or go out walking each evening. Other popular ways of improving our health include stopping smoking and/or drinking. It hoped, by most of us, that doing healthy things and avoiding all things unhealthy we will become healthier and live longer while having a better quality of life. Quality of life also depends upon how we feel and how happy we are with life in general and the environment around us. One gadget that many folk fail to consider is air purifiers.

Out of all the different types of air purifiers that are available it is those that use HEPA filters that would be most suitable for you if you suffer from allergies. More and more of us appear to becoming allergic to household dust or developing hay fever and these are just two of the types of allergies that which can be greatly improved by using such an air purifier.

I love electronic gadgets, my house if full of them, from the essential electric kettle to the luxury LCD TV I recently purchased. Out of all of them I think it is the air purifiers that I could least live without if I had to. These incredible machines are installed in a few rooms in my house and they suck up the air, remove pollutants and then blow out fresh clean air - wonderful.

HEPA air purifiers are amongst the most effective available and the only type you should consider buying if you have an allergy such as hay fever. Although HEPA filters are usually far more expensive that the cheaper purifiers which you may see for around $20 you will be surprised at how cheap they have become in recent years.

Choosing the most suitable air purifiers is relatively easy because all you really need to do is measure the room in which it is to be placed so that you can purchase a machine capable of cleaning that amount of air. You will notice that some air purifiers appear very cheap whereas others can cost more than $1,000. This is because air purifiers are price in relation to how much air they can process. The more air that can be cleaned in a given amount of time the more expensive the machine.

Air purifiers that have HEPA filters remove about 99.97% (virtually all) material (such as pollen) found in the air of 0.3 micrometers or above. As you can see from these figures they are incredibly effective but, sadly, the filters themselves can be very expensive and will, at some time, need to be replaced.

As HEPA filters are expensive some machines also use cheap filters. These cheaper filters are used to clean the air before it is processed by the HEPA filter. As the air is cleaner the HEPA filter has far less work to do to clean it and it therefore lasts longer and needs replacing less often.

After considering the facts above I am sure that you now understand why you really need to consider HEPA filters, especially if you, unfortunately, are allergic to substances commonly found in the air. However, after only a few days of using them you, like me, will find that it would be difficult to part with them.
