For this we need good living Air purifiers that not only keep the indoor air clean and fresh, but also keep you away from diseases and infections. So, here’s some things you need to consider when buying an air purifier so that you don’t make a wrong choice.
1. What kind of air purifier to choose?
You need to know your indoor air quality first and then decide which type of air purifier to buy. If the indoor air is causing allergies, you need an air purifier that is specially designed for allergy relief. HEPA filters and other High Efficiency Particulate Air filters can filter almost 99.97% of common allergens sized at 0.3 microns and larger. So, most pollutants like dust, dust mites, pollen, mold spores, pet dander and ragweed can be eliminated by HEPA air purifiers very effectively.
If you are looking for an air purifier just to improve your indoor air quality can consider all varieties of air purifiers that choose the one which goes well with the room size, brand, features, filtration process and color.
2. What Size Do You Need?
To choose the right size of air purifier you need to consider the square footage of your room. Now you can go to the shop and find an air purifier recommended for the square foot coverage area. You can find this in the air purifier’s specifications under “Manufacturer-Suggested Room Size” on its product pages.

Air purifiers with ACH of at least 4 times per hour are best for allergy and asthma sufferers.
