How often should we change our Air Purifier filters?

Most air purifiers are marketed towards someone with a respiratory problem (allergy, asthma, etc.), pet dander, dust problem, smoke and mold problems. What the air purifiers do is filter out fine sub-micron size dust particles present in the air ensuring the surrounding air is clean. As the air filter accumulates more debris over time, the air purifier's filtration function will not able to operate at its highest capacity.

Before a consumer makes a purchase decision, one of the important factors to keep in mind is how long the product will last. Whenever you are looking for something important such as your health, you will want it to last longer than a few months. When it comes to the replacement filters the longevity is what you are looking for.

Due to that, there are many factors that need to be taken into account when buying replacement filters. For examples the quality of indoor airs, frequency of use, and the filter type, ease of purchase and delivery, whether its genuine or suspect. Let’s look at these factors in details:

The condition of indoor air quality: If the air at your surrounding is dirtier than normal the faster the filters will reach its maximum capacity. If your place is closer to the main road with cars that emit smoke and pollutants or if you have furry pets in your household and smoker in your place, these are the examples where you can expect a shorter lifespan for your filters and be ready to replace with a new one at higher frequency.

The frequency of usage: Evidently, an air purifier that runs 24/7 will require maintenance a lot faster than an air purifier that only runs on a certain time of the day.
