In order to protect the breathing health of themselves and their families, more and more people now use air purifiers, but air purifier products are an electrical appliance that is slightly new to ordinary consumers. In daily use, pay attention to the following seven misunderstandings Below, Hanston purifier experts will explain the misunderstanding of the use of air purifiers.
Misunderstanding 1: Filters are not changed regularly.
Just like the mask needs to be replaced when it is dirty, the filter element of the air purifier should be replaced in time. Even in the case of good air quality, the filter element must be replaced more often, otherwise the filter material will release harmful substances after adsorption and saturation, and will instead become a “source of pollution”. Therefore, it is necessary to regularly maintain the product and replace the filter.
Misunderstanding 2: Place the air purifier against the wall.
I believe that many consumers will place the air purifier against the wall after purchasing it. What you don’t know is that in order to achieve the ideal purification effect of the whole house, the air purifier should be placed away from the wall or furniture, preferably in the center of the house or at least 1.5-2 meters away from the wall. Otherwise, the air flow generated by the purifier will be blocked, resulting in a smaller purification range and poor efficiency. In addition, the wall will absorb the dirty things hidden in the corner, affecting the service life of the purifier.
Misunderstanding 3: The distance between the purifier and people is too close.
When the purifier is working, there are many harmful gases around it. Therefore, do not place it close to people, and it should be appropriately raised to prevent children from touching it. The electrostatic adsorption type purifier allows pollutants in the air to be adsorbed on the electrode plate during work. However, if it is not designed properly, a small amount of ozone will be released, and more than a certain amount will stimulate the respiratory system. When using this purifier, it is best not to stay in the room and turn it off after entering the house, because ozone can be quickly reduced in space and will not stay for a long time.
Misunderstanding 4: Turn on the air purifier only in haze days, but don’t often used it at ordinary times
The popularity of air purifiers is caused by persistent haze. However, we also mentioned above that for the cleanliness of the air, it is not only smog that is pollution. Dust, odor, bacteria, chemical gases, etc. all have adverse effects on the human body. The role of air purifiers is positive. It is the removal of these harmful pollutants. Especially for newly-decorated new houses, vulnerable elderly people who are sensitive to air in the home, young children, etc., air purifiers can still play a role. Of course, if the weather is sunny outside, it is still recommended that everyone’s room be more ventilated and maintain a certain humidity to allow fresh air to flow indoors. Sometimes the quality of this indoor air is fresher than when the air purifier is turned on all year round.
Misunderstanding 5: Do not close doors and windows when turning on the air purifier.
For indoor pollution control, there are many factors affecting the source of pollution, and it is not just air purifiers. For example, in Beijing where smog is frequent, if you encounter persistent haze, you should first close the windows and open the door as little as possible to make the indoor camp into a relatively closed space. Second, adjust the indoor temperature and humidity conditions. The other methods will increase the relative humidity and prevent indoor dust. The use of air purifiers is more effective in such cases. Otherwise, the pollution source will continue to come in through the window, and the effect will be greatly reduced even if the air purifier is always on.
Misunderstanding 6: Put a humidifier next to the air purifier.
Many friends have both a humidifier and an air purifier at home. Many users turn on the humidifier at the same time when using the air purifier. In fact, it has been found that if the humidifier is placed next to the air purifier, the indicator light of the purifier will alarm and the air quality index will rise rapidly. It seems that the two together will interfere. If not pure water is added to the humidifier, but tap water, because the tap water contains more minerals and impurities, the chlorine molecules and microorganisms in the water may be blown into the air with the mist sprayed by the humidifier, forming a source of pollution. If the tap water has a high hardness, the water mist may contain white powder, which will also pollute the indoor air. Therefore, it is recommended that if you use a humidifier, add pure water. If using tap water, it is recommended to keep a sufficient distance from the air purifier.
However, there is a more simple way to select the air purifier with humidification function, which can not only meet the needs of air purification, but also meet the needs of humidified air, safe and convenient.
Misunderstanding 7: When the air purifier displays shows air quality good, then turn off the air purifier.
The power consumption of air purifiers is generally not high. The power consumption of mainstream products generally does not exceed 70W, which is still very power-saving. When the air quality is poor, when using the purifier to see the display shows that the air quality is good, please do not turn off the purifier immediately, it is recommended to slow down for another 1-2 hours and then turn off.
Therefore, when using the air purifier, you must be careful and do not use the “misunderstanding” in order to avoid affecting the effectiveness of the air purifier. Olansi , a professional air purifier factory, suggested that when buying air purifiers, buy well-known brands and avoid using inferior air purifiers.
