How to make full use of the air purifier?
Have you decided to buy an air purifier? Great idea. But before you start choosing a specific model, it's a good to think about how you will use it and where to place it. This important choice largely determines how much clean air your new partner will bring you. Here are some practical tips to get the most out of your air purifier.
1. In the footsteps of pets
Are you allergic to animal hair, but your desire to have a dog or cat at home is stronger? In this case, track where your pet is most common and place your air purifier nearby. The closer you place it to the source of the problem (albeit the cute one), the faster you will solve it. And don't worry, we know from our own experience that animals get used to the treatment in two shakes.
2. Shield against allergens
Your purifier can be used as a shield against allergens. For example, if you do not want dust to enter the children's room, place it on the outside to enter the bedroom. Just direct it so that the air inlet is directed away from the bedroom. This will stop the dirt before it even tries to break in.
3. Air must flow
Another simple rule is: the more in space, the better. A lot of people slide the cleaner into the corner of the room so that it interferes as little as possible and is out of sight. Mistake! In order for the purifier to fulfill its potential, it needs enough space around it. Of course, we are not saying that you have to make it the center of the living room, but it is foolish to hide it behind the couch or close to the window. That is the same as if you just leave it unplugged in the basement.
4. Puirifier on = windows closed
"I'll help the cleaner and let in fresh air from the outside." Believe us, this is a myth. Opening the window just sabotages the hard work the purifier has already done in the room. Dust and pollen particles are constantly waiting for their chance, and as soon as they get it, they will infallibly find your home. Therefore, whenever you clean the air, close the windows and doors in the room and let the air purifier do its job.
5. The hour at least
Of course, it always depends on the size of the room and the performance of the appliance itself, but we generally recommend leaving the purifier in operation for at least an hour at a time. This will ensure that the air in the room is filtered at least 3-4 times and that the vast majority of dust particles, pollen, bacteria, viruses and fungi remain locked in the filter system of the purifier.
6. Change filters, change filters, change filters
The service life of replaceable filters in the air purifier is usually 6-12 months, depending on how polluted the air is and how often the treatment plant runs. If you leave the filters in operation for twice as long, for example, you will save some money but deceive yourself and your beloved ones. The filters have a certain capacity and if they are filled up, they stop trapping dirt. And then you and your family inhale it.
With Airbi air purifiers you will find an time counter, so as soon as the filter life limit is approaching, you will get an echo immediately.
