The best air purifiers for your home

Les meilleurs purificateurs d'air pour votre maison

You probably already know about them, as air purifiers have become very popular in recent years. These devices, heirs to humidifiers, have become an essential part of interior design because they provide cleaner, purer and better quality air. A detail that experts recommend as an additional measure of protection against Covid. In this article, we give you some tips on how to get the perfect atmosphere for the rooms in your home.

What is the best type of air purifier?

After analyzing the main options on the market, we have compiled a list of the best performing models in a specific area. Thus, you can find air purifiers for bedrooms to an exclusive model to take care of your most delicate clothes.

And, of course, there are also models that will help you improve the air quality in your home. And for that, there are all kinds of options. From the P6006, one of the most recommended, to the P1211, it all depends on your needs and the area you need to fill.

Characteristics analyzed in each model:

Type of filter: determines the quantity and size of particles it is able to trap and, therefore, the final quality of the air. The most advisable is to opt for "HEPA filters", which retain all particles with a diameter equal to or greater than 0.3 microns with an efficiency of 99.97%. But beware, the models that say "HEPA type" are probably of inferior quality because they will not have as high a filtration capacity. We can also find activated carbon filters that, in addition to eliminating bacteria, are able to control bad odors and humidity levels, which is very beneficial for people with respiratory problems.

Size and weight: depending on the space you have, you may prefer a larger or smaller model. While the larger ones are capable of covering larger rooms, the smaller ones are much more manageable and easier to place.

Action area: directly related to the previous point, depending on the size of the room you want to purify, you should look for a model with a larger or smaller action area.

Noise: the decibels will indicate the level of noise exerted by each device, the minimum being the most desirable, especially if you intend it for the children's room. In any case, most models have a night or silent mode.

We start with the P6006, one of the most effective air purifiers for your home. This model has a complete 5-stage filtration system that guarantees the removal of 99.97% of persistent particles such as pollen, dust, mold, smoke, odors, pet hair and bacteria.

To do this, it has a pre-filter, a HEPA H13 filter, an activated carbon filter, a photocatalytic filter and the UV function that eliminates the H1N1 virus with 99.99% efficiency. With its CADR of 510 m3/h and its four speeds, it is able to cover rooms up to 1076 ft², renewing the air in medium and large rooms. In addition, it has a night mode that allows it to operate while saving energy and being low noise.

We also have the P3001, which also has an ionizer function and is equipped with a motor that can treat 310 m3/h of air. The ionizer function releases negative ions to purify the air by binding bad particles (such as bad smells) which causes them to be deposited on the floor. In the literature, it is also said that negative ions influence the cells of happiness. Negative ions can also be found near waterfalls, in the forest or in the countryside as opposed to large cities. But you have to be careful that it does not exceed the limits allowed by Health Canada because there would be at that time an important production of ozone which could affect asthmatics which is not the case for the P3001 (in addition to having the option on or off for the ionizer function). You can therefore vacuum them with a hepa type vacuum cleaner. It is a little smaller than the P6006 and is also very popular.

Otherwise we have the P1211 which lends itself well to smaller rooms under 220 sq. ft. by treating 120 m3/h. All of our air purifiers have a medical HEPA filter as recommended by allergists and the CDC (Center Disease Control) which helps eliminate the presence of viruses such as COVID in the air. In addition, you have a 2-year warranty and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on these products. So what are you waiting for to improve your air quality today?
