What to Look for in an Air Purifying Fan Combo

There are several important things to look for and probing questions to ask yourself when buying an air purifier and cooler fan combo. Here are some of the best things to look for in an air purifier fan:

  1. Type of fan filter
  2. Design
  3. Oscillation
  4. Power

Types of Fan air Filters

The type of filter can make or break the performance of an air purifier. Air purifier fans with great quality filters will always perform better than a machine with poor quality filters. When looking for an air purifier fan combo, be sure to look for true HEPA filters and activated carbon filters. There are many knock-offs so it is important that the purifier features a TRUE HEPA filter. A HEPA filter will eliminate 99.97% of airborne particles that are at least .3 microns in size. This means that a purifier fan with a HEPA filter will capture dust, mold, germs, pet hair, pollen, and other allergens. Second, an activated carbon filter is also important. An activated carbon filter will eliminate and absorb odors, gases, and smoke. Unfortunately, at this time there are no air purifier fans that offer both of these filters. Luckily, the Dyson Pure Cool features a true HEPA filter.


Design is an important aspect to consider for the air filter fan. If you are looking for a powerful fan that can cool an entire room, then you should look for one that offers maximum airflow. The best design to maximize airflow is a tower fan design. The tower fan design allows large amounts of air to be dispelled at one time. This results in higher fan power and cooling capabilities.


A fan that oscillates is much more effective than a fan that is stationary. When looking for an air purifier fan combo, it is important to make sure the fan will oscillate. An oscillating fan will create air circulation throughout the entire room. This results in the whole room cooling down rather than just one area. One example of a great type of oscillating fan is the tower fan with air filter combo.


Power speaks for itself. Both air purification power and the power of the fan are important. The more powerful the air purifier, the more air it can absorb, which results in cleaner and less dirty air in your home. Also, the more powerful the air purifier, the more air it will absorb, and in turn, the more air will be dispelled from the fan.
