With the increasingly serious air pollution and higher concern to our health, most people tend to install an air purifier at home regardless of its high cost. However, a lot of people haven't enjoyed the complete benefits their air purifiers should have brought. Here're some practical tips on using air purifiers:
Keep your air purifier at least 1.5 to 2 meters from the wall
Many users keep their purifiers against the wall in order to keep the room clear and tidy, which is a big mistake. Most air purifiers in the market, like Solveair, adopt three-dimensional circulating air flow, and the filtrating efficiency will decline as the air flow is partly blocked. Worse still, dust accumulates more in the corner between the walls and purifier, which reduce the service life. The ideal location is in the middle of the room, or at least 1.5 to 2 meters away from walls.
Keep a safe distance to your body
There's a misunderstanding that the closer to your body, the better the purification efficiency. As your device works, unpurified air around flows fast, which is bad for your health. Therefore, it's suggested the air purifier be put away from your body, better at a suitable height and out of children's reach. While working, electrostatic adherence purifiers can let out some ozone, which is harmful to your body at a certain density, so stay out when the device is on and turn it off when you're in. Do remember to keep a safe distance to your air purifier.
Change the strainers every two or three months
Like a gauze musk, strainers can filter PM2.5 in the indoor air. However, dust accumulates on the strainers, which not only affects the filtration efficiency but also cause additional air pollution. Remember to change the strainers in your purifier regularly, or according to the intelligent instruction on your Solveair purifier.
Don't use it with a humidifier
In the hazy dry winter, many families use a purifier and a humidifier together. In fact, your purifier will give an alarm if it works close to a humidifier. Some minerals, impurities, chloride molecules and microorganism in running water can be sprayed into the air and become pollutants. If the running water is hard, there might be white powder in the spray, which also contributes to the air pollution. So please keep your purifier at a certain distance from your humidifier.
Don't keep your purifiers off until the haze attacks
Because of the cost of electricity and consumption of strainers, some customers don't use their air purifiers until serious hazy weather. However, it’s not only the haze but also the invisible pollutants in the air, like dust, poisonous gases, bacteria and peculiar smell, that actually do great harm to our health. Air purifiers can filter most of the substances and effectively reduce the negative influence on our health, especially for the newly furnished houses or families with the old or the young.
In addition, most air purifiers are not electricity wasting, at the highest cost of 60 W, and some even as low as 30 W, which is very energy saving. Leave the purifier on for another 1 to 2 hours when seeing the “good air quality” sign on the screen. Of course, we’d better open the windows to ventilate in fine days, and keep the air moist.
Check the air-tightness of your windows and doors
Air purifiers can effectively filter the outdoor haze and keep your indoor air clean. To ensure its efficiency, it's highly suggested the doors and windows are closed to form a relatively enclosed space. Check your tightness of the doors and windows in case the polluted air constantly flows into the room.
