Air Purifiers Basic Buying Guide

Aug 17, 2007
If you have been on a lookout for a home air purifier, you probably know that air purifiers come in, well, a few types namely : expensive, more expensive, and COWABUNGA! Indeed, the prices that some air purifiers cost can be quite hefty. But why is this so? And is it really worth the price tag?

So how do you separate out the hype? This article will help you gain a basic understanding on what are the air purifiers out there in the marketplace and give you some tips to help you make an informed decision eventually.

There are three different kinds of air purifiers that work on different principles. They are ionic air purifiers, HEPA filter system and ultraviolet system air purifiers. Each has its pros and cons. The actual science behind how each type works is discussed more in detail at my website. Depending on your requirements and budgets, one of them will surely meet your needs.

Everyone has seen the infomercial for the Ionic Breeze. This well-known air purifier always has some special deal going. For example like "Get $100 off for a limited time.", "Get a free mini-Ionic Breeze air purifier when you purchase one of their full-sized air purifiers." Wow but is that really such good a deal?

In actual fact, many of these air purifier companies hope you will be tempted by their huge discount. Even with the discount, they are still making money. The more air purifiers they sell at the price, the more money goes into their pockets. So just be very careful!

Comparison Shopping
So you think that buying an air purifier directly from the company is always the best policy? Apparently not so. It will be good to do some price comparisons through many of today's top shopping sites. You must understand that the shopping search engines make their commission on air purifiers regardless of the purchase price. Bottom line is that they just want sales. Thus, they are not biased toward what air purifier you buy so long as the product is bought through their site! So? Their only goal is to help find you the absolute best deal on your new air purifier so you will make a purchase on their site!

Word of Mouth
Yes, nothing is probably more important that reviews from people who have used the air purifiers before! You should always look into what other consumers or users have to say. There plenty of websites out there that provide consumers a chance to voice their experience and give ratings to the air purifiers. This help you quickly weed out the bad products and get you to focus on those air purifiers that are worth getting.
In this day and age, most electrical products that we buy should come with a warranty. Thus you must take into account the warranty given when you are purchasing an air purifier. For example, "limited warranty" offers usually mean the company covers little if your air purifier breaks down. Always look for a solid air purifier warranty from a reputable company with a good customer relations department locally. You have to watch out for tricks used by companies like the "overnight it to us at your expense" clause. Sending air purifiers at overnight rates can often cost half of what air purifiers cost you in the first place. So remember to avoid a warranty with that requirement!

Look for Bargains
This comes after you have identified the exact model of air purifier that you have decided to buy. Go online and find a shopping search engine. Start by doing some comparison of air purifier prices. One excellent place to check out for great bargains are auction sites like Ebay. And you'll find prices can range greatly. Thus do not just buy blindly without doing some bargain hunting.

Sometimes it will be hard to resist the many deals on air purifiers out there like "Free shipping." "Buy any of our air purifiers and get a gift." "No payments for a set amount of time." The list goes on! Do not be swayed easily. Always spend some time to investigate first to help you choose what deal is best and works for you. Thus again, I hate to repeat this, but the best way to select the right one for your situation remains the one that your fifth grade teacher taught you. Do your own homework.
