The Cost of 24 Hours of Pure Air

Blue SkiesWe know that running an air purifier all day gives air filtered from allergens and pollutants, but some might wonder what the cost is of running an air purifier non-stop.

At Air Purifiers America, we believe that saving energy is a big deal. It's why we underscore which of our products are Energy Star certified.  

So, what does it actually cost to run an air purifier for a day?

It turns out, running your air purifier 24 hours a day is more cost effective than you might expect. Take for example, the Alen BreatheSmart. This air purifier is known not only for its effectiveness at relieving concerns for allergy sufferers and more, but it also incorporates smart technology that automatically adjusts its power level according to the amount of pollutants it measures in the room.

We took a look at what it costs to run a BreatheSmart, including replacing the filter at the recommended interval, and found that it costs about 53 cents a day to clean the air in a room.

That's not much, in fact, it's less than the cost of a single tablet of Claritin®.

Take a look at how some other common costs stack up against the cost of 24 hours of pure air.

So, breathe easy. It's a simple choice to own and run an air purifier in your home or office.
