What to Look for in Air Purifiers

by | Jul 9, 2021 | Medical & Veterinary Equipment Blog

Whether you run a medical facility and need to protect the health of your patients, or you simply want to do what you can to protect yourself and your loved ones, you’ll need reliable air purifiers to keep your air supply clean and free of germs. Our team at Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp. is highly knowledgeable about air purification systems of all kinds, and we want to help you select the best one for your needs. In this article, we’ll go over some key things to look for when selecting air purifiers in order to make sure that you are getting the reliable protection you deserve.

  • Types of Pollutants- When choosing air purifiers, one of the first things you should figure out is what exactly you need your system to filter out. If you are buying a system for your medical facility, the answer to that question is most likely “everything,” but if you’re buying one for personal use then the answer could vary depending on your particular sensitivities. If your main concern is pet dander, for example, then focus on a purifier that effectively eliminates that.
  • Types of Filters- Another thing to look at when choosing air purifiers is what types of filters they use. For the best results, you should choose a purifier that uses HEPA filters, which trap 99.7% of all particles that are 0.3 microns or larger in size. If you are particularly concerned about odours, you might also want to choose a system that has an additional carbon filter to trap the volatile compounds that cause them.
