Air Purifier Buying Guide
We spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, breathing air the EPA warns to be 2 to 5x more polluted than outdoor air. Many are unaware the symptoms they experience—allergies, sinus headaches, trouble sleeping or asthma attacks—can be attributed to poor indoor air quality.
An air purifier removes allergens and impurities from the air. Many Alen HEPA Air Purifier owners say it takes less than 48 hours to see and feel a difference.
Air Purifier Technologies
RECOMMENDED - HEPA Air Purifier
High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) air purifiers utilize the most effective filter technology on the market. Only HEPA air purifiers can remove a significant amount of allergens and pollutants from the air—up to 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns in size.
NOT RECOMMENDED - Electrostatic Air Purifier
An electrostatic air purifier does not use a filter, but rather an internal filtration system, which attracts charged particles. This internal filtration system has to be cleaned regularly, and over time becomes less efficient.
NOT RECOMMENDED - Ionic Ozone Air Purifier
An ionizer charges particles in the air, making it easier for filters and cleaners to trap and can be effective when used in combination with a HEPA type filter. However, when used alone, it is less effective and can produce harmful levels of ozone in the process.
Where to start?
Room Coverage Area
Compare your home's room sizes with listed coverage areas along with air exchange frequency. One full air exchange indicates all the air within a specified coverage area has passed through the air purifier. Consider an air purifier that covers a larger area than your room size for more frequent air exchanges, ensuring optimal circulation of pure air.

Value and Price
Expect to pay $300-700 for an air purifier that will last. Many customers report having gone through three or four cheaper air purifiers before finally settling on a quality unit. A quality air purifier is an investment, one where you pay for what you get.
