Daikin Home Air Purifiers Product Review

Is a Home Air Purifier Worth It?

Keeping a house clean is difficult, but for those who suffer from asthma or allergy symptoms, cleaning to ensure proper indoor air quality is critical. Pet dander, dust mites, mold spores, and other pollutants can circulate in your home’s air and require constant daily cleaning to help eliminate them. While small portable air purifiers are an option, they rarely thoroughly clean the air in your home as the air from other rooms will consistently pollute the already cleaned air from the room air purifier as it circulates through your home. Yet, a whole-home air purifier is an air cleaner option that can clean all of the air circulating in your home. This can significantly reduce allergy triggers and respiratory issues.

Daikin Air Purifier Product Review

Known as the producer of some of the best air purifiers on the market, Daikin has maintained its status as a global leader in the HVAC space. Their air purifier systems utilize multi-stage filtration, which works to trap allergens that are as small as a few microns. Whether your home consists of large rooms or small rooms, Daikin air purifiers help reduce air pollution, chemicals, odors, and allergens through filtration and LED technology. The three-stage process begins with a pre-filter which will trap the larger particulate. The air is then passed through a HEPA filter and an activated carbon filter, which work together to further eliminate airborne particles, germs, mold, odors, chemicals, Volatile Organic Compounds, formaldehyde, and bacteria.

The LED light technology helps to destroy viruses and bacteria trapped in the true HEPA filter, and a built-in humidifier will make automatic adjustments to improve comfort. Benefits of Daikin air purification systems include:

  • A low noise level, even with the higher fan speed
  • Minimal power consumption
  • Multiple vents for improved airflow
  • CADR rating (clean air delivery rate) of 7
  • A five-year warranty
  • Variable speed settings
  • Auto mode settings
  • Five-year warranty
  • The ability to clean the air in areas of 1,000 sq. ft.

Whole House Filter Types

There are multiple types of filters available for whole-house air purification. Some are designed to create a physical barrier where airborne contaminants are trapped. Others are designed to also remove chemicals and VOCs through the use of certain materials or electronic charges. While all types of filters are designed to improve air quality in the home, choosing the right filtration system will depend on the contaminants that pose a problem in your home.

Flat Filters

Flat air filters are one of the most common and least expensive types of filters. They are typically made of fiberglass and fit into your HVAC system, where they will trap large dust particles and other types of debris. Replacement filters of this type are often inexpensive, but replacement is more frequent. If you are looking for improved filtration with your flat filter, you can upgrade to pleated filters for a slight increase in cost.

Extended Media Filters

Extended media filters are thick, bulky boxed units that contain about 4-inch-thick accordion filtration material. This filter design helps trap both small and large particles but will not filter the air as much as HEPA filtration. Extended media filters can be costly upfront as they require professional installation, but the replacement filters are not too pricey and only need to be changed once or twice a year.

Electronic Filters

Electronic filters are installed right into your ductwork and use a high-voltage current to electrically charge the pollutants and particles, which will then fall into collector plates, removing them from the air before it is re-circulated. These types of filters use this ionization process to help remove smoke particles and other lung irritants, making the air easier to breathe for those with respiratory conditions or sensitivities. While the collector plates need to be cleaned, these filters never need replacing.

UV Filters

For homeowners who are most concerned about germs, UV filters will be the best option. UV light will be used on bacteria and viruses, killing them when they reach the filter before pushing out the cleaned air. Systems like the Daikin air purification system will use a particulate HEPA filter combined with UV technology to eliminate particulate matter and germs at the same time.

Why Do You Need Air Purifiers Even if You Have an HVAC System?

Your HVAC system uses its own filter to trap large particles from the air before it is recirculated through the ductwork in your home. But your HVAC system is designed to only address larger particulate such as bigger dust and pet hair. To truly clean the air in your home and remove toxins, chemicals, allergens, and other irritants, an air purifier is necessary.Daikin true HEPA air purifiers are the perfect option, no matter the square footage of your home or room size. They use a multi-stage filtration system to remove chemicals, odors, and particulates from the air, and unlike air purifiers installed in your HVAC system, Daikin air purifiers are less expensive and perform the job more effectively. Whether you are looking for a Daikin air purifier for your living room, bedroom, or to take care of your entire house, Superior Home Supplies has the models you are looking for.
