Are you looking for a way to get rid of dust in your home? An air purifier is a great solution for removing dust particles from the air. Air purifiers circulate air in a room and, as they draw in the air, they also remove all the tiny particles floating in it, including dust. HEPA-filtered air purifiers are the best for filtering dust from your space, as they can remove up to 99.97 percent of dust particles that measure 3 microns in diameter. Most air purifiers on the market are designed to remove large dust particles from the air.
Many have mechanical filtration, which is a method of capturing contaminants in filters. The particles are intended to stick to the filter or be trapped within the filter fibers. The most common type of mechanical filter is a HEPA filter, which is designed to trap particles in the air. Air purifiers can be effective at removing dust indoors and improving asthma and allergy symptoms.
This Levoit air purifier is a Good Housekeeping seal holder, thanks to its combination of value, performance and intelligent design. It has a three-stage filtration system, including a true HEPA filter, which helps capture even the smallest airborne contaminants in rooms up to approximately 400 square feet. It also has a built-in precision laser sensor that accurately monitors particles in the room and automatically adjusts fan speeds as needed. The purifier is incredibly quiet and operates at only 24 dB, making it perfect for bedrooms.
It also has intelligent capabilities, such as the Levoit app, which allows you to monitor air quality in real time, view filter life and set schedules. Some filters are reusable and washable, but require meticulous maintenance, so they are not usually found in the most effective air purifiers. To make it easier, many air purifiers have indicator lights that indicate it's time to replace the filter. As air moves through the filter, contaminants and particles are captured, and clean air is expelled into the living space.
It's important to buy the right size air purifier for the job; look for one with a high clean air supply rate (CADR). Using an air purifier to help control and reduce dust can help remove it from the air before it reaches your lungs. When researching air purifiers, it's also important to consider units without carbon components in their filters. There is a new type of air cleaner technology that goes beyond what a HEPA filter can do for dust particles. But over the past decade, as indoor air quality (IAQ) awareness began to increase, air purifiers became mainstream.
If you want an air cleaner to remove particles such as dust, dirt and soot, refer to the packaging or product description for a clean air supply rate (CADR).
