WHY HEPA FILTERS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ALLERGIES:
WHAT IS A HEPA FILTER?
HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. That means that HEPA filter is High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter.
What makes HEPA filters different from others is the ability to trap 99.97% of small particulates of about 0.3 or larger.
HEPA Filters work by pushing air through a fine mesh that captures harmful particles such as pet dander, tobacco, smoke, pollen from flowers, dust mites and so much more.
For that reason, HEPA filters are the best for allergies , dust and smoke. Good models can switch on themselves automatically once they sense a difference in air quality.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN SHOPPING FOR AIR PURIFIER?
- NOISE LEVEL: – Since you plan to use these gadgets 24/7 – it is better you opt for a silent unit. Some units can make some noise at the start because that is when they capture most of the dust but after a few seconds, the unit will tune its self to a low setting mode which is very silent and effective. Those with turbo settings are noisy but should only be used when the dust is too much.
- ENERGY CONSUMPTION:- Opt for a model which is Energy start certified – these appliances are supposed to be used 24/7 so they have to be power friendly. You have to get cleaner air at a small fee.
- MAINTENANCE COSTS:- By default all air purifiers need maintenance. You have to clean / replace filters. But buy a model which has HEPA filters, these last for long (2-3 years). Also make sure that those filters are available on the market so that when the need arises, you can easily get one. The life span of air filters is determined by the quality of air being filtered and how many times the unit is being used. People who leave is dusty areas might replace filters more than those leaving in cleaner areas.
- COVERAGE AREA:- Opt for a model which covers a wide area – it should be in position to filter and clean air in a wide area. But if you have a small room, opt for a smaller unit like GermGuardian AC4825.
- NO OZONE GENERATION:- Beware of models which generate ozone pollution – these are harmful to your health especially when you have asthma & allergies

HOW TO KEEP AIR CLEAN IN YOUR ROOM?
There are a few things that you can do to reduce on the dust and other related pollutants in your room, house and office.
- Clean your room often:- If it is a bedroom, wash all bed sheets at the end of the week – you can use hot water of about 130F. If it is your living room, vacuum the sofas at least twice a week if you don’t have pets. But those with pets, you need to vacuum those sofas on a daily basis. Pets drop off far on a daily basis and most of it finds its way into the sofa.
- Get rid of Dust Mite Hangouts: – We all love drapes in our homes but they’re good at hiding dust mites. So if possible you can replace them with wooden blinds. Also opt for hard floors rather than carpets and rugs – these trap dust and related allergens.
- Avoid Cleaning Your Room Late In The Evening:- Sounds wired but true. When you clean the room in the evening, it will take 2 hours or more for the dust to settle. You will have very few hours if not minutes to be outside of your house/room – so you will settle down before the dust settles down after a clean. Always clean your room in the morning so that dust gets enough time to settle before you’re back home.
- If Possible – Keep Pets Out Of The Room:- It could be your bedroom, living room or office – but any sort of room where you spend most of your time. The dander in your pet’s fur can trigger off various allergic conditions (making it hard to breathe). The same dander can track in pollen & mold from outdoors.
- Let go of fluff: – There is no need of keeping extra pillows, stuffed animal toys, linens and other dust collecting objects in your room. The less congested the room, the less dust in it.
