It is common knowledge that the quality of air that we breathe has a direct effect on our health and well-being. As part of the Covid-19 response plan, The Department of Education has laid out clear guidance for the use of room air cleaners in schools and creches where poor air quality still exists.
“Air cleaners can assist in removal control and provide an additional measure of precaution where poor ventilation exists. They should not be used to fully replace ventilation and should be used in conjunction with and to support other methods of ventilation that are available “

In short, the Air Purifier must
When researching air purifier units, it is essential that you choose a unit that can fully clean all of the air within the room. This is referred to as ACH (Air changes per Hour). To select the correct unit for your room, you will need to calculate the volume of your room.
Most air cleaners are labelled with a rate for CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate). You can calculate the air changes per hour by using the below equation.
Depending on the size of the room you may require more than one air purifier to meet the requirements set out by the Department of Education – Three Air Changes Per Hour.
Once you have found a unit that is suitable for your requirements, it is a good idea to check the life span of the filters within the Air Purifier and that the filters are readily available.
