Spring is coming: how to choose the best air purifier to fight against allergies
When spring comes it brings lots of color with flowers blossoming all around. This is not good news for everyone though. For those suffering from pollen allergy, this might be the worst period of the year, leaving them with annoying symptoms such as sneezing, cough, itchy eyes and nose.
An air purifier could be the answer to make their life easier during this season, but it’s not always easy to choose the right one. What should you consider when buying one of these devices and what are the main aspects to take into account? Keep reading and find out!
Room size makes a difference
When buying an air purifier, you should take into account the size of the room you are going to place it in. In fact, you should make sure the device is big enough to match with the area of your house you want to filter. One way to find the best fit for you is to look at the amount of time a product needs to purify the area of the room. This should give a rough idea of how it will work in practice.
The right filter
Air purifiers’ filters usually feature more than one layer, meaning that filtration happens in different steps. The best type you can choose to fight pollen in your home is one that contains an HEPA 13 layer, where HEPA stands for “high particulate efficiency air”. It allows to trap 99.97% of particles with a size of up to 0.3 microns (millionths of a meter). To get the best result possible and long-term protection from pollen, remember to follow manufacturer’s recommendations on maintenance and replacement.
Consider the CADR rating
These type of devices are usually labeled with a clean air delivery rate (CADR) data. This value was developed by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) to help consumers understand the volume of filtered air emitted by the air purifier. The larger the CADR number listed on the air purifier, the more purified air will be diffused into the room.
H-PURIFIER 700 features the HEPA 13 layer into the exclusive Hoover system of filtration H-TRIFILTER that combines 3 different layers, each one with its specific function. The HEPA 13 layer has a specific and unique treatment that will inhibit and inactivate pollen when captured to ensure high protection for allergy sufferers. Thanks to its unique connectivity, a User Allergy Profile can be created on the hOn App to customize pollen settings and let the device start automatically.
