How to choose UV Air Purifiers
A UV air purifier will help you control the microorganisms in the air of every room of the building. Since such device uses UV light to clean the air, it can dispose of biological pollutants like viruses and bacteria and thus make the air inside your house healthier. The following guide will help you pay attention to the most important factors in order to select a device that will fit your needs the most.
First and the most important factor to consider is the capacity of the purifier that you are about to order. To know if an air purifier will cover the area of your room, you need to find out what its particle capture efficiency is. This information can be found in the device’s description.
Construction and installation are next factors to consider. The types of UV purifiers that exist today are presented with portable devices as well as wall and ceiling mounted ones. If you are planning to use the purifier in every room of the house, you need to choose a portable device. However, if you have already planned a location where a UV air purifier will be installed, select the device that will fit the mounting requirements.
Maintenance of an air purifier is, perhaps, one of the most significant factors to consider. Before you buy such device, ensure that you will be able to cover its operating costs. The operating cost includes the amount of energy the device requires for proper operation along with the cost of replaceable filters and other parts that you will need to change. Be very careful in selecting the UV air purifier, it may have a low and really affordable price while a replaceable filter could cost twice as much as the purifier’s body. In addition to that, ensure that you will be able to replace the filter on your own.
You should also pay attention to the noise level of an air purifier when choosing one for your home. As a rule, devices that use UV filtering technology offer quiet operation, but it will not harm you to specifically check this feature before buying the device.
When the capacity and installation type of a UV air purifier are specified, and you have calculated the operating cost of such device, you might want to look for some additional features. For example, a remote control that will help you set the preferable operation modes from any location of the house. In addition to that, you might want to be able to program the operation of your air purifier so that it spends less energy and money while cleaning the air.
