How to Find the Ideal Sound dB Level for Your Air Purifier

The idea of a noise-free home is a tempting proposition for many of us. Unfortunately, air purifiers can be noisy, which might make it difficult to sleep at night or to have a conversation in the same room as the machine. You can find many air purifiers that range from 30-70 dBs, with some getting louder than others. The best way to find out if an air purifier is too loud for you is by reading reviews and looking up specs on the company website. That way, you’ll know how loud the machine will be before you purchase it and can aim to find one that’s ideal for you. 

If an air purifier is too loud, it won’t be the most beneficial purchase for you. There are a few things you’ll want to look for when finding the right machine. The first thing would be the sound level of the machine. Most machines are between 30-50 dBs on average and some can get up to 70 dBs. You’ll also want to find out how much power the machine draws from your home and how many square feet it covers. Some machines take up more space than others and might not be ideal if you’re looking for something small and low maintenance. A unit that’s too big might take up more counter space in your kitchen or living room and will have higher power usage, which could mean higher electricity bills each month. 

Lastly, make sure your unit has a filter that is easy to change out when it needs replacing. Not all filters are created equally, so look into what type of filter it comes with before making a purchase just to make sure it’ll work well with your home’s unique needs.
