If you’re thinking of buying one of our top-rated air purifiers, then you may be wondering how quickly it can take to improve the indoor air quality of your rooms. While having a robust filtration system can tackle a variety of pollutants, the speed at which it filters air is also important to your safety and health.
In this article, we’re here to answer that question — and more. Read on to learn how fast UV Care air purifiers can clean indoor air.
How Long Does it Take for an Air Purifier to Clean a Room?
Let’s take a closer look at how air purifiers, generally speaking, can clear pollutants from an average-sized room. In most tests, air purifiers could do so in around 30 minutes.
This is based on what we call a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR). CADR indicates the volume of air that’s filtered per hour. The higher the CADR number, the faster the air purifier can deliver fresh and clean air.
A CADR above 240 receives an Excellent rating; 240 to 180, Very Good; 179 to 120, Good; 119 to 60, Fair; and under 60, Poor.
Typically, medical experts will recommend that you look for an air purifier with a CADR rating of 300, which can clean a room of 300 square feet much faster than an air purifier with a CADR rating of 200 or lower.
Factors That Decide How Long an Air Purifier Takes
Several things influence the effectiveness of an air purifier’s CADR. While it is a good indicator of what the air purifier can do, it can be less effective than you think depending on the following factors:
- Room Size — the size of the room itself will greatly impact just how long the air purifier takes to do its job. Attached to the CADR rating is the air purifier’s recommended room size. So, say you have one with a high CADR rating, but you place it in a bigger room than recommended, the air purifier will not be as effective as intended.
- Purifying power — this is indicated by the model’s rate of air changes per hour (ACH). This indicates how many times per hour it can filter the entire volume of air in an enclosed space. A high-quality air purifier should have an ACH of 4 or 5, which shows it can clean a room four to five times per hour.
- Furniture and other obstacles — furniture and other large objects in a room can become obstacles, which can interrupt the flow of air in the room. This may lower the purifier’s overall metric. If you have large items of furniture, you might want to think about reshuffling the design of your room to better suit the air purifier.
- Pollutant level — If you are experiencing an extremely high level of air pollutants in your home, you may notice that the purifier may struggle to keep up. Sources of pollutants are a variety of things, such as kitchen smoke, mold growth, pollen and pet dander, and more.
Aside from that, purifier design and maintenance are, of course, important considerations to their effectiveness. Some air purifiers have better filtration technology than others. Likewise, performing regular maintenance tasks and ensuring each component is in good working condition will increase its efficiency, ACH, and CADR.
How Fast Can UV Care Air Purifiers Clean Your Indoor Air?
When it comes to UV Care’s air purifiers, we guarantee the fastest delivery of clean air in the market.
Our air purifiers are capable of doing so thanks to our innovative, state-of-the-art technology. HEPA air purifiers, which all of our models are, generally have higher CADR than normal air purifiers. Plus, we offer high CADR rates for large coverage areas.
One great example of that is our Super Air Cleaner Pro 2, which has a CADR of 1260 m3/h, and a coverage area of up to 190 m² space. This makes it ideal if you want an air purifier for your average-sized offices, classrooms, living rooms, and more.
On top of that our air purifiers like our Super Air Cleaner Pro 2 (and others in our line of medical-grade air purifiers) are capable of up to 6 ACH, which makes it indisputably the most reliable and fast air purifier you can get. This, combined with UV Care’s superior UV-C engineering and patented ViruX® technology, is scientifically proven to eliminate up to 99.9% of all airborne pathogens in your room. This includes incredibly small and health-harming viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2, E. Coli, and Staphylococcus Aureus — all in under a minute.
And of course, the more filtration, the better. Aside from our medical-grade H13 and H14 HEPA filters, we also offer models with superior pre-filter and activated carbon filters. Other models, like our Super Plasma Air Pro, come with additional photocatalyst filter, plasma technology, molecular sieve absorption, and more — which allows our HEPA air purifiers to consistently deliver the purest air possible.
With this insight into how fast UV Care air purifiers can clean indoor air, you can rest assured you’ve invested in the most powerful air cleaning technology on the market.
