The majority of our customers at Quality Star Services in San Antonio, Texas, are concerned about the quality of the indoor they are breathing. You can improve your air quality with an air purifier. There are numerous types created for different kinds of pollutants. Once you have an air purifier, there are ways to check to be certain your unit is performing correctly and effectively.
CHECKING YOUR AIR PURIFIER WITH A FILTER INDICATOR FEATURE
We recommend purchasing an air purifier with a filter indicator light. Every type of air filter will become less effective with age. This means the contaminants are not being removed from your indoor air. You will eventually need to replace your filter or your air purifier will not work.
When you purchase a unit with a filter indicator, the performance of your filter is measured. When your filter is no longer effective, a light will come on. This is the easiest way to know when to replace your filter. If your air quality does not improve, your air purifier needs to be repaired.
MANUALLY CHECKING YOUR AIR FILTER
Whether or not you have a filter indicator, we also recommend manually checking your air filter. It is possible your unit can be giving you a false read. You should manually check your filter on a regular basis. This is even more important if you believe your air purifier is not performing at optimal efficiency.
Take a good look at your filter for any dust, hair or debris. If your filter is not clogged or is extremely dirty, you will not need to replace it. This method can only be used if you have a HEAP purifier. You will not be able to determine if a carbon filter is dirty or clogged.
THE BENEFITS OF A SMART AIR PURIFIER
There are smart air purifiers available with numerous advantages including HEPA filters, apps and sensors. You will be provided with air quality reports every minute, stats, alerts and graphs. If your air purifier reports are poor, there is a good chance you need to replace your filter.
PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR ALLERGIES
Pay attention to any allergy symptoms you are experiencing inside of your home. Symptoms such as headaches, itchy or watery eyes and a stuffy nose can indicate your air purifier is not working properly. When the air in your home is correctly purified, most if not all of your symptoms should be eliminated. Whether your allergies occur seasonally or throughout the year, they can be triggered by pet dander and dust.
An air purifier is effective because even extremely small particles are removed from your indoor air. This will improve your comfort level during the day or when you are sleeping, and it can eliminate your allergy symptoms when you are at home. If your air purifier is not performing correctly, we recommend having your unit repaired.
TESTING THE AIRFLOW OF YOUR AIR PURIFIER
To determine if your air purifier is working correctly, we recommend checking the airflow coming out of your unit. There is a fan in your air purifier responsible for pulling in the air inside your home. Harmful pollutants are trapped in your filter, enabling the device to blow clean air into your home. If you do not feel any air coming out, there is an issue with your unit.
The fan inside of your air purifier should be running smoothly and fairly quietly. If you hear loud noises, either you need to replace your filter, or your unit requires repair. Your device should not be completely silent. If this happens, the amount of air being pulled in will not be enough to improve the quality of your air. If your fan is not moving at all or is moving extremely slowly or roughly, your device needs to be repaired.
One of the best benefits of an air purifier is the elimination of distasteful odors, including smoke, trash and dirty diapers. If you can smell odors in your home, there is an issue with your air purifier.
