Eco-Friendly Air Purifiers - 3 Features To Consider
Air pollutants can cause serious health risks. Air purifiers
are common place in homes today - either in HVAC systems or stand
alone air purificaiton systems. This articles explores the three
important options you should consider when purchasing an air purifier.
Choosing an eco-friendly air purifier means you receive the benefits
of air that is constantly filtered of harmful airborne pollutants
like dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, allowing you to breathe
the cleanest possible indoor air in your home or office. Selecting
an air purifier that is eco-friendly means that you are doing your
part, and the purifier has been designed to do its part by leaving
less of a footprint on the environment. Here are 3 important features
to look for to insure that the air purifier you select is effective
as well as eco-friendly.
1. Choose Biodegradable Filters
Check to make sure that the filters are completely biodegradable.
Biodegradable filters are usually made of nontoxic polypropylene
which release only carbon dioxide and water as they decompose. And
because polypropylene is waterproof, the filter naturally resists
contamination from bacteria, viruses, and mold without use of chemical
additives or washes.
2. Look for the Energy Star
One way to make sure the purifier you choose is energy efficient
is to look for the Energy Star Seal of Approval as proof that it
has been recognized by the United States Environmental Protective
Agency as being superior by consuming less energy than other room
air purifiers in the same class. Less energy consumption means conserving
our natural resources, and makes it less costly to improve your
indoor air quality.
3. Choose a Lifetime Warranty
A lifetime warranty on the purifier is an indication that the purifier
is well made and will stand the test of time, and that the manufacturer
stands behind its product. This also means that rather than a disposable
purifier that will last only a year or so, you have a product that
is reusable indefinitely. This becomes one less product to clog
