Air purifiers can cost you anything from $20-$1000 depending on coverage area, quality, and features. When you happily have purchased and installed your air purifier the cost of ownership for filter replacement and energy consumption varies greatly and should therefore really be something to take into account BEFORE the purchase.
The largest post is definitely filters. To correctly maintain your air purifier and keep up efficient particle reduction the filters need to be changed every 3-4 months. A filter can cost between $10-$100, where most is well into the hundred. For some air purifiers there is more than one filter to replace as they have both a HEPA filter and a carbon filter. The second largest post will be energy consumption, which can ad up to $30-$300 annually.
In total the cost of ownership for an air purifier can be anything from $70-$800 annually! A very hefty amount of money to say the least!
LifeAir IonFlow air purifier has a reusable collector instead of a filter meaning no expensive filter cost and it runs on only 5W/h meaning only $7 per year!!
Suddenly the purchase price of $350-$600 for LifeAir IonFlow doesn’t seem expensive at all. Considering the operational cost and what you get in terms of air purification efficiency and style LifeAir IonFlow is the best choice on the market.
