Air Purifiers : Electrostatic Air Purifiers
With electrostatic air purifiers, extremely small particulates (.01 - 1 micron) can be filtered out. The smallest particulates a Hepa filter can filter out is .3 microns. This means that for every 10,000 particles which pass through a filter, the electrostatic filter lets 1 (or less) escape and the Hepa filter may let 3 escape. We compare electrostatic purification with Hepa filtration because Hepa filters are considered to be the second best form of filtration. Hepa filtration is used primarily to remove dust, pollen, mold spores. In addition, electrostatic filtration goes a step further by removing bacteria, viruses, cigarette smoke, and chemical fumes.
Electrostatic air purifiers tend to be less expensive, in the long run. It is more expensive in the original purchase. However, you will save, in the long run, because you don't have to buy replacement filters. Replacement filters can be quite expensive and inconvenient to replace. Keep in mind, that the ion charged plates need to be cleaned regularly for maximum performance.
Many people hesitate to purchase an air purifier because they do not wish to hear a noisy machine running continuously in the background. This is a legitimate concern by those who enjoy having a peaceful and calm home. Electrostatic air purifiers are made to operate quietly and effectively so that they do not hinder the consumer with large amounts of noise.
An electrostatic air purifier is designed to pull the air in and send fresh clean air out, for you to breathe. There are other pollutants we breathe in all the time such as pollen, or if you have pets, pet dander. Any of these things can cause allergies which can lead to asthma and other health risks. An electrostatic air purifier is supposed to draw these particles in by an electrostatic system.
Natural smelling air is a much-desired trait Some air purifiers leave the air with a strange smell; an electrostatic air purifier, however, leaves the air smelling clean and pure with no strange scents. An electrostatic air purifier accomplishes this by removing the particles and pollutants from the air, and trapping them into the steel rods that filter the air.
