Hunter Air Filters - A Case Study of Recurring Costs Associated with In-home Air Purification: Hunter Air Filters - Case Study: Hunter Air Filters

purifier particles airborne approximately

As we breathe the air around us, we also ingest whatever is in that air including bacterial and viral organisms, allergens, carbon-based particles from fossil combustion, and a variety of other particulates small enough to enter our bloodstream. Breathing and ingesting these fine particle infiltrates can lead to increased incidents of asthma, reduced lung function, and a variety of viral or bacterial infections, including influenza. All of this leads to increased absenteeism at school or work, increased ER visits and hospital admissions, and tens of thousands of premature deaths annually.

To the extent feasible, the first and best line of defense is eliminating the source of the contaminants. Realistically that is not always possible. Therefore, a second line of defense is in-home air purification with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters. HEPA filters reportedly remove approximately 99.97 per cent of airborne particles as tiny as 0.3 micrometers in diameter. By comparison, most airborne particles from a sneeze or cough are approximately 0.6 micrometers or more in diameter.

Case Study: Hunter Air Filters

Many air purifiers use disposable HEPA filters; therefore, the price and longevity of filters should factor into the overall cost of operating an air purifier system. A number of companies manufacture air purifier systems, and it is prudent to evaluate the cost of various options before making a purchase. To provide an example of costs associated with air purifier operation, consider a company like Hunter, a name long synonymous with quality ceiling fans. Hunter is also an innovative player in the air quality space. The company offers an air purifying product line featuring nearly 30 different models with prices ranging from $50 to $200. The higher-end Hunter models have washable, re-usable pre-filters to capture larger airborne particles.

Replacement Hunter air filters start as low as $9.99 and go as high as $95 depending on the model. Often Hunter offers discounts up to 15% for purchasing three or more air filters at one time. To determine the real cost of a filter, it is also wise to consider the life span of a filter. The average Hunter air filter provides approximately 1,000 hours before requiring a change. The life of an air filter depends on how “dirty” the air is, but in most cases, Hunter air filters last up to six months. Hunter air purification systems ship with a filter already installed, and all Hunter air purifiers have a “check filter light” or a “filter chart” to assist in determining the appropriate time for a filter-change.

Factors to Consider When Choosing an Air Purifier:

  • Rate of Effective Removal of Airborne Contaminates
  • Size of Area for Purification
  • Ease of Use
  • Spare Parts’ Availability
  • Cost of Filters
  • Longevity of Filters
  • Manufacturer’s Reputation for Service
  • Price
  • Reliability
  • Design
  • Product Warranty

As I read your story, I thought about how I lost my dad also six years ago. However, unlike yourself I don’t remember the last gift my father gave me before he passed instead I have the last birthday card. You must have been very close to your dad and it’s nice that you honour him in a way in writing about him.

That was the first story I have read on your site. Excellent work, and the personal feelings you feel for your father are infused in your words. Well done sir.
