Finding the Best Portable Air Purifier


  A Portable Air Purifier can be a handy tool to have because it will give you the greatest opportunity of having safe levels of air wherever you need to go.

Many air purifiers, while being effective, can be large, bulky machines that either are very difficult to move, or designed to be stationary once they are installed. This is why a portable air purifier needs a different set of standards to evaluate how efficient they can be.

The subject of air purification is one that will have to be used to help evaluate what you should be looking for in your portable purifier.

Just because the unit is designed to be smaller does not mean that you should not be able to have an effective unit. Even if the purifier will only clean a smaller room because of its size, you should still have a purifier which can clean at a very high rate.

Different types of filtration are available, especially with air purifiers designed to be moved from room to room. Also important can be the specifics which are built into the purifier to help you transport it.

Whether it comes with a handle or with casters to help you move it, the mobility of the unit should be an important quality. The following are good examples of portable air purifiers which can make your life easier.

The BlueAir 501 Air Purifier

This model works in your home for rooms of a 580 square foot nature or smaller. Naturally, the smaller of a space that you work it in, the better air quality you will receive. Two different types of filtration are presented in this model, the HEPASilent and a SmokeStop filter.

HEPASilent technology will work to capture 99.97% of all of the contaminates in the air which are 0.1 microns or larger, which is a better rate than a standard HEPA.

The SmokeStop filter is a specially designed filter to not only reduce the amount of odor in your air, but it will specially target the presence of tobacco smoke in your home and help to remove the contaminates that it leaves behind.

The Blue Air 501 is a portable model because it comes with casters, making it much easier to transport from room to room. While the unit itself is not necessarily light, the presence of wheels with the unit makes it very efficiently moved around.

Many purifiers will not even come with this feature, making it very difficult to transport. The 501 will traditionally sell for $488 and comes with a 10 year limited warranty, making it a very long-lasting portable air purifier to use in the comfort of your home.

The IQ Allergen 100 Air Cleaner

IQ portable air purifiers will often come with a very sensitive filter to contamination. The HyperHEPA filter which is contained in this unit will remove up to 99.5% of all of the contaminates in the air which are 0.003 microns or larger.

This makes the HyperHEPA into one of the most effective purifiers available on the market. A micro pre-filter is also included, turning the IQ Allergen 100 into a very strong purifier that you will be able to trust in a number of different situation.

This unit traditionally sells for around $789, although it does come with a 5 year limited warranty to protect against internal defects. One of the best features of the Allergen 100, however, is that it comes with both casters and a wall mount.

Should you choose to leave this purifier in one room, you can put it up on the wall to save on air space. If you decide that the portability is a key feature, the wheels on the unit will make it very easy to get this purifier from room to room.

The 6 different fan speeds available on the unit will make this a very efficient purifier that you can use in any home or office environment to bring about the best level of satisfaction in air quality.

The Hunter 30401 Portable Air Cleaner

  This Hunter air purifier will use both HEPA and activated carbon technology to give you cleaner air on two different levels. HEPA filtration will capture particles as tiny as 0.3 microns while the activated carbon will work on breaking down and absorbing unwanted odors in your air. The lightweight unit is also very easily transported, giving you the ability to use it in a number of different environments.

The Hunter 30401 is best used in rooms of 315 square feet or smaller, making it suitable for nearly any room in your house. The lightness of the model will make it easy to carry about and you should have no troubles bringing better air quality to different points around your home.

It has 3 different fan speeds and while it sells for around $309, it also features a 5 year limited warranty. Should any defects happen to arise within the motor of the unit, you can rest assured that your purifier will be treated for parts and labor.

Portable air purifiers will require a basic amount of legwork to determine what the best models for your environment are. If you are simply looking for a purifier which you can easily move from room to room, you may only want an air purifier which comes with features which make it easy to move, like casters.

If, however, you want to take your purifier to different locations, a lightweight air cleaner would be best. The portable air purifier that you choose, however, should always include multiple types of purification, so that you can make sure that wherever you use the unit, you will not have to worry about the air quality in that location.
