Which Xiaomi Air Purifier is Best for You?

Looking for the perfect air purifier can be a tedious task as you want the best for you and your loved ones. To make a purchase worthwhile, we tend to ponder on the pros and cons, and the details can get overwhelming. Let us break it down for you.

To begin, here are two main questions that may be crossing your mind:

When do I need an Air Purifier?

Air purifiers are usually used during seasons where there’s visible obscurance in the air, or when allergies are on the rise such as with pollen during Spring. However, did you know that the Air Purifier could be used all year round?

Air Purifiers are used to rid the air of miniscule particles that could be detrimental to our health. The better the quality of air, the less exposed we are to triggers of respiratory health conditions. The air, especially in urban areas, contain particles that are less visible to the naked eye. These contaminants include dust, pollen, smoke, chemical irritants, pet dander, dust mites, mold spores and many particulate matter (PM). Particles that are less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter are hazardous to us if exposed to for long periods of time.

Do Air Purifiers Work?

We may believe that the air inside our homes are safer, but with limited air regulation, the air that we constantly breathe indoors hold the most airborne substances. Although these particles seem unthreatening, spending 90% of our time in the same unregulated space of air is not safe for us in the long haul.

Air Purifiers are great for both commercial and residential use. Offices and schools located in urban areas where there are highways and higher car density would undoubtedly benefit from this device. These devices are capable of filtering fumes and pollutants such as ozone, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, particulates from cars and nearby factories, and also reduce the carbon dioxide level in the room that could cause shortness of breath, especially to young children and the elderly. 

HEPA Air Filters are good in reducing the carbon dioxide in the air. You will notice a difference in the freshness of the air and your sleep quality as you allow the air to regulate throughout the day.

 

Xiaomi Mi Air Purifiers are Unique, and Here's Why

360 Degree, Triple Protection Filter with True HEPA Filter

Compared to the conventional air purifier, Xiaomi Mi Air Purifiers house HEPA Filters which are the industry’s best filters, especially against PM2.5 pollutants.

What is HEPA Filter?

HEPA Filter is a triple-filter made with activated coconut carbon. It is designed to allow 360 degrees air purification, eliminating 99% of all particles and pollutants including smoke, household dust, pet dander, mould spores, pollen, formaldehyde and other harmful substances. The new Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 3H features the HEPA 13 Class Filter which increases the efficiency rate to 99.95%.

Aerodynamic System

All Xiaomi Air Purifiers are equipped with effective dual-fan system that are capable of distributing clean air to far corners of your home. The innovation delivers high Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) to meet the level of air purity your living space needs. With a press of a button, expect clean, fresh air within minutes. The Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier Pro is capable of distributing clean air up to 500m³/hour within 60m² range.

Precise Laser Particle Sensor

The in-built high precision laser sensor precisely measures the temperature, humidity and PM2.5 levels of your home and feedbacks for immediate action. Feel in control with the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier by connecting it to the Mi Home App. The in-built Wi-Fi capability allows you to view and control the air quality of your home wherever you are. Take immediate action when you receive a notification from your Mi Air Purifier.

Powerful, Silent, and Green

Xiaomi Mi Air Purifiers have multiple modes to cater to your needs. Use High-level Mode for when you require the extra boost, or Sleep Mode to sleep well throughout the night with the perfect white noise. The Air Purifier 3H efficiently purifiers the air as you sleep at 32dBA on Sleep Mode, while staying power efficient, consuming less than 1kWh of energy per day.

The sleek, minimalist design allows the Xiaomi device to fit in your home seamlessly like a companion. Don’t let the size of the Air Purifier 2H and 3H fool you. At 24cm x 24 cm x 52cm, these devices pack a punch against allergens and pollutants, capable of keeping your home safe while not taking up much room. If you are able to accomodate more space, check out the Air Purifier Pro. Moreover, Xiaomi Mi Air Purifiers supports both Google Assistant and Alexa. Try them out on the Mi Air Purifier 2H and 3H.

 

Before buying an air purifier, here are a few questions you might want to consider

  • How large is my living/ work space?

The size of your air purifier depends on the size of your living space. The larger the area, the wider the coverage area required of your air purifier.

 

  • How sensitive am I to the allergens in the air?

Depending on the sensitivity of you or your loved ones to the quality of air, the higher the sensitivity, the higher the Clean Air Delivery Rate (m³/h) of your air purifier should be. A higher CADR means larger amount of air is regulated within one period of time.

 

  • How much control do I want over my living/ work space?

Once you have determined the Coverage Area and CADR that you need, determine the features that are relevant to you.There are many features offered on air purifiers in the market, such as Wi-Fi compatibilities, Google Assistant support, remote controls, OLED Displays and Real Time Air Quality sensors. Some may seem irrelevant to your needs, hence, narrow down your choices to what fits your preference.
