Check out the following frequently asked questions and answers about air purifiers that will help you choose the ideal air purifier in Malaysia for your needs.

1. Do air purifiers remove odors?

Activated carbon filters are very effective in removing odors. They can eliminate smells that come from pets, garbage, baby diapers, etc.

Other types of filters, such as HEPA filters, are not very effective in removing smells as they are in eliminating pollution particles.

2. What is a HEPA filter?

HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) is a type of filtration media that removes microscopic particles from the air passing through the filter.

It is a standard given to filters that remove at least 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.03 microns.

3. What do I need to check before buying an air purifier?

Most importantly, check if the filter is authentic HEPA, and not something similar to HEPA. Secondly, check the CADR and ACH for your room size.

Then, you can check its portability, noise level, automatic mode, fan speed, filters lifespan, filter replacement cost, usability, AHAM rating, energy, and star rating among other users.

4. How long should I run my air purifier

It is recommended to keep running your air purifier to get the best results continuously. In reducing noise and electricity costs, air purifiers come with different cleaning speeds.

For example, to maintain your indoor air quality while you are away from home, you can leave your air purifier in a lower setting than when you are home. Doing this will save on energy and cut costs while still keeping a clean environment.

5. Where should I place my air purifier?

The best place to keep an air purifier is in the room you spend most of your time. For most people, this would be the bedroom. For others, you may be spending many hours in a home office or a living area with your family.

If you spend time in different areas in your home, consider purchasing an air purifier with wheels that you can quickly move to different areas. Some air purifiers are designed with handle or are very light-weight, so moving isn’t a challenge.

6. When is the best time to change the filters?

There is no need to change for the HEPA filters as it can last for approximately 10 years. Home environment factors such as indoor pets, tobacco smoke, a fireplace, or someone with moderate or severe allergies or asthma can play a significant role in how often the filters need to be replaced.

If you are buying a HEPA air purifier, check the cost of replacement filters. If your air purifier uses both HEPA and carbon filter or other combinations, they need to be replaced separately and may last for different periods.

Another latest feature of air purifiers is “Streamer Discharge”, a type of plasma discharge that effectively eliminates bacteria and mould, hazardous chemical substances and allergens, etc. This amazing high-tech feature is found in Daikin air purifiers.
