Things To Consider Before Buying An Air Purifier

How do you know that an air purifier is truly effective? Check the CADR rating on the package. Hunter independently tests every air purifier's performance. All reputable air purifier manufacturers display the CADR performance on the package. CADR is the industry standard rating system for an air purifier's effectiveness.

CADR: Real World Performance

CADR measures the amount of clean air that a purifier delivers into a room. It gauges real world performance, taking into account filter efficiency, airflow and room size. CADR is the single most important piece of information you need to make a head-to-head comparison of air cleaner performance.

What's Changing?

Air Changes per Hour (ACH) is simply a measurement of how much air a unit moves, not how effectively the air is cleaned. Likewise, a filter's "efficiency" measures the amount of particles that the filter material alone can capture in lab tests. These tests don't incorporate real world factors like airflow design or fan speed. Remember, real world air purifier effectiveness is measured by CADR-not ACH or filter efficiency tests!

*CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) is an independently tested measure of how effective an air purifier performs in the real world.
