Consider which air pollutants you deal with on a regular basis. Does someone in your home smoke cigarettes or do you live in an area with high humidity? Whatever pollutant is the main offender is the one you should target for elimination.
For example, if you have a pet in the home, then you might want to stick with the following features:
- Activated carbon filters
- A timer with a turbo setting
- Captures airborne bacteria and germs
- Circulates room air 5-7 times per hour
- Has a HEPA filter that captures up to 99.7% of particles
As you can tell from the example, the features of your air purifier will vary according to your needs. However, the most important thing and the top reason for purchasing any air purifier is to ensure that the air passes through a pre-filter and a HEPA filter./
