Air filters are very popular in homes, they keep air in the room clean and help people with allergies and other respiratory problems. All types of air purifiers are good at the job, but some of them are doing that job much better than the others. Today on the market you can find many HEPA filter air purifiers, and these are the most popular air purifiers at this moment.

Before air purifiers with HEPA filters were introduced to the world, electrostatic air cleaners were most popular devices for keeping the fresh air in the room. Big companies, offices with lots of employment, stores, all of them were using electrostatic air cleaner to provide a dust free environment to the employers and customers.

The technology behind the electrostatic air purifier is very different than the technology behind the most famous HEPA filter air purifiers. Electrostatic air cleaners have some advantages as well as some not so good disadvantages. But still, if you use them in a proper way these devices can be a really good solution for filtering the air.

Which technology to use will all depend on your needs and what is your primary goal. If you want to remove as much as possible airborne particles then without a doubt you should buy an air purifier with HEPA filter. But if you are looking for a device that will with little maintenance cost keep the air in the room on the proper levels, remove most of the dust and dander then maybe electrostatic air cleaner is the better choice and as well a cheaper alternative than expensive air purifier with HEPA filter.

The main concern about the electrostatic air cleaner is the ozone emission. Static electricity may create ozone, and air purifiers with static electricity are not the only devices that emit ozone. Even TV in a living room may emit ozone. Because of that some of the air cleaners based on static electricity are emitting low levels of ozone.

The ozone in the living room is not welcome. Ozone is harmful and in high dosages can even be lethal. Because of that keep an eye on the ozone levels that these air purifiers emit. Get the one with zero ozone generation. By the law, every air cleaner should have a statement of how many ozone is emitted.

HOW DOES AN ELECTROSTATIC AIR FILTER WORK?

Electrostatic air filters do not have replaceable air filters. This feature is fantastic for all people who don’t wish to bother with the maintenance of the filters, as well as spending every year more money on buying new filters. And if the air in the room is extremely dirty the filters may need replacement even sooner.

Electrostatic air filter uses static electricity to trap airborne particles. Static electricity charges particles and the particles then get stuck on the sides of the air purifiers filtration system.

In other words, the electrostatic air purifier will suck the air inside air purifying system and in this process will send static electricity which will make particles heavier by making them positively or negatively charged. Airborne particles will no longer be airborne and will stick to the walls of the air purification system because the layer inside air purifier will attract opposite charges and hold them on the layer. The best electrostatic air purifiers are the ones that have many layers of different charge. These air filtration systems will more efficiently trap airborne particles. After this process, the air purifier will release fresh air free from unwanted particles.
