The EPA(the Environmental Protection Agency) suggests monitoring your health effects after a change in your surroundings. For example, if you have new health problems after moving, remodeling, refurnishing, or a performing pesticide application, this could be an indicator of an indoor air quality problem. Consult your family physician.
Other sources of indoor air quality problems include:
●Toxic household cleaning products
Look for smelly or stuffy air, condensation on walls or windows, or mold growth around your home.
If you're unsure, contact your local health department to find professionals to help you solve and identify your indoor air quality problems.
There are also various indoor air quality monitors you can use to check the number of particles in your home's air.
It should be placed in a space where personal activities are more concentrated. It can be bedroom, office etc. Place the air purifier according to where you would stay up for a long time.
Theoretically, the air purifier should be on for 24 hours.
But in fact, when you are not at home during the day, you can open the windows to keep the air clean, which has the same effect as an air purifier.
Tests show that it is appropriate to turn on the air purifier for 4-5 hours a day, which can effectively reduce the overall consumables cost of the product while keeping the indoor air clean.
Air purifiers usually have 3 types of filters: pre-filers, HEPA Filters and carbon filters.
This layer of filter is basically necessary for each air purifier. It is generally made of special polyester fiber material, which looks thin and has a larger mesh port. This layer is mainly to remove hair, fiber fleece, large particles, dandruff, etc.
It is made of laminated borosilicate microfibers, which is as thin as paper. As we can see, HEPA filters are mostly white and consist of hundreds of regular folds. A good HEPA filter generally has a filtration efficiency of 99.99% for particles with a diameter of more than 0.3 micrometers. This layer of filter can remove a variety of air pollution components like inhalable particulate matter, cigarette smoke, pollen, etc.
The carbon filter adopts aluminum, plastic and paper honeycomb with through-hole structure as carriers. Compared with the traditional activated carbon filter, it has better aerodynamic performance, smaller bulk density, larger specific surface area, higher adsorption efficiency, and lower wind resistance coefficient.
Honeycomb activated carbon filter is made of polyurethane foam with powdered activated carbon, of which carbon content is about 35%-50%. It has efficient adsorption ability, which can be used for air purification, removing volatile organic compounds formaldehyde, toluene, hydrogen sulfide, chlorobenzene and other air pollutants.
This filter layer has low air resistance and low energy consumption that can deodorize and purify the environment under a certain air volume.
This acronym represents an important measurement for air purifiers. CADR stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate. This measurement was developed by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers.
It indicates the volume of filtered air delivered by an air purifier. It is given in three measurements - one for pollen, one for tobacco smoke, and one for dust. The higher the CADR number, the faster the unit filters the air.
ACH stands for Air Changes per Hour. This indicates how frequently the air purifier filters or changes all of the air in a given space per hour. For example, an ACH rating of 6 means that all of the air in your room is thoroughly filtered six times per hour.
We recommend an ACH of 5 or 6 for healthy indoor air. For individuals with allergies and asthma, an ACH rating of 6 or 8 is best.
CFM stands for cubic feet per minute. This measurement represents how many cubic feet of air move through the unit per minute. This is important when considering which air purifier is right for you. The higher the CFM, the better potential air purification results.
Keep in mind that CFM can be impacted by a variety of factors, including fan speeds, insulation, air flow in the room, furniture in the room, and the amount of pollutants in the air. However, there is an equation to help you determine an ideal CFM, which can provide help when deciding on air purifiers.
To find your ideal CFM, calculate the total volume of your space (length x width x height in cubic feet) and divide this number by your desired ACH. Below is a sample equation:
CFM = 18ft x 24ft x 8ft / 5(air exchanges)
CFM = 3456/5
CFM = 691.2
Effectively preventing the growth of mold and mildew
Mold and mildew spores thrive and reproduce in hot and humid conditions above 60%, in which furniture, clothes, and food are prone to mold and odor. After using a dehumidifier, mold and mildew will be significantly reduced due to the decrease in humidity.
Store Important Items Safely
Dehumidifier can effectively maintain a dry and humid balance of the working environment: Dehumidifier can accurately measure and maintain an ideal fixed range of indoor humidity, which can better protect raw materials, finished products, archives and precision electronic equipment (such as pharmaceuticals, computers, production equipment) that have high requirements on humidity.
Good For Human Health
Scientific research believes that the human body has high requirements for the humidity of the living environment. The relative humidity is preferably 50-70%, and it is preferably not less than 50% in winter and not more than 80% in summer. The humidity is too high. The use of dehumidification opportunities can help the environment maintain a proper humidity, greatly reduce the growth of spring bacteria, and it is not easy to induce respiratory diseases and rheumatism.
Alternatives to Your Air Conditioning
Using a dehumidifier instead of air conditioner to remove moisture can save power and get better dehumidification effect.
The following list of places are suitable for placing the dehumidifier
●Kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms
●Garages and workshops
●Spa and indoor pool areas
●Warehouses and other industrial/commercial spaces
The vast majority of the portable dehumidifiers on the market today use a refrigeration system to condense moisture out of the air and lower the humidity. As a dehumidifier operates, humid air is drawn into the dehumidifier through an air inlet using the force created by an internal compressor and fan.
The air is propelled over a series of cool condenser coils that pull out excess moisture and condense it into the dehumidifier's reservoir.
Once this process is complete, the now-dried air is reheated and propelled back out into your room through an air outlet.
Collected moisture remains in the water reservoir until you empty it or it is automatically drained via a connected hose.
This process continues for as long as you use the dehumidifier, gradually lowering the humidity level in the space and creating drier conditions. Most residential and commercial/industrial dehumidifiers operate in this way.
Dehumidifier noise level is measured in decibels (dB). A maximum dB rating of 40 to 50 dB is about average for dehumidifiers, which is comfortable to talk over, but you will hear it. The vast majority of dehumidifiers have noise, especially those with compressors and fans that work by physically moving air through them. However, the noise level varies from model to model.
When you purchase your dehumidifier and begin using it, be sure to review the manufacturer's maintenance tips in the user manual.
These may include:
●Cleaning and/or replacing air filters as needed
●Draining the unit before storage season
●Instructions for cleaning your dehumidifier and water reservoir
●Contact information for warranty service
Dehumidifiers can last anywhere from 3 to 15 years. Performing the recommended maintenance and keeping your unit in good condition helps lengthen the operating lifespan.
