How to Determine the Effectiveness of Your Solenco Air Purifier

Air pollution is a growing concern worldwide, prompting many to invest in air purifiers to improve the air quality in their homes or offices. At Solenco, we offer a range of high-quality air purifiers designed to help you breathe cleaner, healthier air. However, it's essential to ensure that your Solenco air purifier is not only running but also working effectively. In this blog, we'll discuss various methods to determine if your Solenco air purifier is working as intended and efficiently improving the air you breathe.

Check the Airflow

Solenco air purifiers blow air on a continuous basis. Once switched on, if you can't feel any air being blown out, or if the fan cannot be heard, there may be an issue that needs addressing.

Check the Air Quality Indicators

Our modern Solenco air purifiers are equipped with air quality sensors and indicators. These indicators provide real-time feedback on the air quality in your environment. They have colour-coded displays or numerical readings that reflect the level of pollutants present. When your Solenco air purifier is working effectively, it should respond by reducing the pollutant levels and displaying improved air quality.

Monitor Dust and Particle Collection

A reliable method to evaluate your Solenco air purifier effectiveness is by checking the amount of dust and particles it collects over time. Periodically inspect the filters, specifically the pre-filter or the H13 HEPA filter, to see if they have trapped significant amounts of pollutants. If you notice a build-up of dust and debris, it indicates that the air purifier is effectively capturing airborne particles.

Assess Odour and Allergen Reduction

Solenco air purifiers equipped with activated carbon or charcoal filters are excellent at reducing odours, smoke, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). If your air purifier is working effectively, you should notice a decrease in unpleasant odours and an improvement in overall air freshness. Additionally, individuals with allergies should experience relief from common allergens such as pollen, pet dander, and mould spores. You can even try a simple test: spray some toilet spray in the room with the air purifier working and see how quickly the odour disappears.

Measure Airborne Particle Count

For a more precise assessment, consider using a handheld laser particle counter to measure the airborne particle count before and after using your Solenco air purifier. This device provides accurate readings of the number and size of particles present in the air. By comparing the particle count with and without the air purifier running, you can determine its efficiency in reducing airborne contaminants.

Evaluate Indoor Air Quality Improvement

Pay attention to any noticeable improvements in your indoor air quality and your personal well-being. If your Solenco air purifier is effectively removing pollutants, you may experience fewer symptoms related to poor air quality, such as sneezing, coughing, or headaches. Additionally, keep an eye on any changes in the cleanliness and freshness of surfaces in your home. An efficient Solenco air purifier should help reduce the accumulation of dust on furniture and surfaces.

Consider Energy Consumption and Noise Level

While not directly related to an air purifier's effectiveness, it is worth considering its energy consumption and noise level. Solenco air purifiers are designed with low energy consumption and are engineered to operate quietly, contributing to a peaceful and comfortable environment. A well-functioning Solenco air purifier should maintain consistent performance without excessive energy usage or disruptive noise.


Regularly assessing the performance of your Solenco air purifier is essential to ensure that it is effectively improving the quality of the air you breathe. By utilizing the methods mentioned above, including monitoring air quality indicators, checking dust and particle collection, evaluating odour and allergen reduction, measuring airborne particle count, and considering overall indoor air quality improvements, you can determine the effectiveness of your Solenco air purifier.

Remember to follow Solenco's instructions for maintenance, filter replacement, and recommended room size for optimal results. Prioritizing clean air in your home or office will contribute to a healthier and more comfortable environment for you and your loved ones.
