However afterwards, it can be cleaned only once a month. If you don’t have a severely polluted environment, you will clean the unit a lot less.
How often do i need to clean my Alpine Air Purifier?
Cleaning your air purifier as often as your owner’s manual suggests is one of the most important things to do to have your air purifier working at its best.
Are Alpine Air purifiers quiet?
Alpine Air purifiers make about the same amount of noise as the average computer fan, much less than a micro-wave or air conditioner, and slightly more than a toaster. Our air purifiers use a very quiet 5 speed fan, similar to a computer fan, this pulls enough air through the air purification chamber at a rate that creates optimum levels of purifying plasma. If sound level is an issue, select a slightly more powerful air purifier and run it at a lower speed. On low speed our air purifiers are so quiet you would have to lean down and stick your ear within inches to even be able to hear the whisper fan running, and even then, most of the sound would be the slight whoosh of air passing through the air purifier.
Are they energy efficient?
Alpine Air purifiers cost about 3 to 4 cents per day to operate if run continuously. Our unique Technology is efficient and only uses 12 volts of electricity and most units use much less than 1 amp. By comparison, many air filters can cost – a month to operate or more.]
