Measuring How Much Electricity Air Purifiers UseThe first step in answering this question is to understand the consumption of electrical power. The power charge on your utility bill is typically a measure of kilowatt-hours consumed by all of the electrical devices in your home. For reference, a kilowatt-hour is another way of saying 1,000 watts of power used for one hour. A 1,000-watt (or 1-kilowatt) device running for one hour, therefore, would add 1 kilowatt-hour to your bill. Since this is how you are billed for electricity, it seems to us to be the best way of measuring air purifier power consumption and giving you an objective idea of how much electricity an air purifier uses. Before we go into the consumption of air purifiers, though, let's consider the power consumption of some other common home appliances for reference. Keep in mind that the following are rough averages and that your home appliances may vary:
- 49-inch LED TV: 85W
- Laptop computer: 50-100W
- Desktop computer: 100-450w
- Refrigerator: 100-200W
- Dishwasher: 1,200-1,500W (1.2-1.5kW)
- Air conditioner: 1,000-4,000W (1-4kW)
So, Do Air Purifiers Use a Lot of Electricity?With a good way to measure energy consumption and a few other appliance ratings for reference out of the way, let's take a look at what you can expect an air purifier to use. Below, we've listed the power consumption of some of our top models:
- Amaircare 3000 VOC: 84W
- Field Controls TRIO: 100W
- Blueair Pro L (maximum on high setting): 170W
- IQAir HealthPro Plus: up to 215W
- Austin Air Healthmate: 135W
Are There Air Purifiers That Don't Use as Much Electricity?So far, we've established that most air purifiers use up relatively little power per hour. On a monthly basis, you can expect to spend roughly the same amount on your air purifier as on an average refrigerator. However, many people still wonder if there are options for cutting down their costs. Fortunately, there are several Energy Star certified air purifiers that can keep your power bills low. The Rabbit Air Minus A2 (700 square foot version), for instance, uses only 7-47 watts, depending on settings. If you've ever wondered "Do air purifiers use a lot of electricity," we hope this article has given you some answers. If you have questions about any of our air purifiers, feel free to contact us for answers and personalized product recommendations.
What Kinds of Contaminants Lead to Poor Sleep?To improve your chances of sleeping well, there are three things that need to be removed from your air. The first is pollution in the form of gases and particles. The second is any kind of allergen, dust or mold spore that could irritate your respiratory system. Lastly, unpleasant odors could keep you from getting a good night's sleep. To maximize your sleep quality, you'll need an air purifier capable of removing all of these impurities.
What Type of Air Purifier Do You Need?The kind of air purifier you'll need for your bedroom will depend on what kinds of contaminants you're exposed to. If dust and allergens are your only problem, a HEPA or filterless air purifier will do nicely. If you live in a heavily polluted area or deal with strong odors, though, a purifier with a carbon filter will be in order. When choosing air purifiers for better sleep at night, be sure to take into account what the problems with your home air actually are. If you need some help finding out, you can use a personal indoor air quality meter to gain insights into the state of the air in your bedroom.
Five of the Best Air Purifiers for Better SleepThere are many different air purifiers that are great for bedroom use, but choosing just one can be hard. To make the process easier, we've narrowed the list down to five of the units we think are best for helping you get a better night's sleep:
- Airfree Onix: Filterless air purifier that runs completely silently. Good for mold spores, dust and allergens.
- EnviroKlenz: Powerful filtration for both particles and gases/odors. Quiet mode is perfect for use while sleeping.
- Rabbit Minus A2: Ultra-quiet filtration for light gases and particles. Wall-mountable for use in small bedrooms.
- Airpura G600: HEPA and high-grade carbon filtration. Great for heavier odors and air pollution. Includes 18-pound activated carbon filter.
- IQAir GC Multigas: Combines powerful filtration for gases and odors with IQAir's HyperHEPA technology. Very quiet.
Features and Advantages of Dual Protection FiltersBlueair's DualProtection filters offer powerful multi-purpose filtration that helps to make the Blueair Classic series units more versatile. With a DualProtection filter, your Blueair Classic air purifier can remove not only particles but also gases and odors from the air in your home. As a result, you'll get a higher level of protection than you would from particulate filtration alone. Best of all, these filters are designed to filter out impurities without in any way reducing the clean air delivery rate (CADR) of the units equipped with them. At the heart of the DualProtection filter system is activated coconut carbon filter material, which can remove gaseous impurities in the air without requiring chemical additives. Using this system, the DualProtection filters can remove gaseous pollutants up to four times faster than other carbon-based filters. The DualProtection filters are fitted specifically to their corresponding Classic series air purifiers. These filters should be changed every six months to keep them fresh and in top working condition. If you need help remembering when to change the filters in your air purifier, keep in mind that you can use our handy filter change reminder tool to get automated notifications when it's time for your next filter change.

1. FormaldehydeFormaldehyde is used to treat many common building materials, including home insulation and most types of pressed wood. Although the formaldehyde in these products is largely trapped, it can gradually leak out into your home air over time.
2. AcetoneBest known for its use as a nail polish remover, acetone is a harsh chemical that can cause upper respiratory irritation. You can be exposed to acetone from various beauty products, as well as several household cleaning chemicals.
3. BenzeneLike formaldehyde, benzene crops up in several consumer products that most users aren't even aware contain it. Household adhesives, treated rubber products and even some paints contain benzene and can release it into your home air over time.
