It’s been a while since filters were just that – filters. With the advancement in technology, filters have evolved into various air purifying jargon, such as HEPA filters, SEFF filters, Pre-filters, Charcoal filters. Why all the different filters? What do they do and why is it important to match the filter with what you want to achieve?

Not only is it important to match an air purifier to the room size, but it’s also important to take into consideration as to what you want your air purifier to achieve. If you don’t match your choice of unit up with these factors, you would more than likely waste your money, buy the wrong unit and then not gain the benefit that can come with owning the right air purifier.

What do you want to achieve?

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you want it to remove a smell from the air?
  • Do you want it to deal with pollen?
  • Is your concern centered around VOCs?
  • Are you looking to kill germs, bacteria or bugs like MRSA?

The key is to understand what you are looking to achieve and then make sure that your air purifier can actually remove those allergens from the air.
