Why Is My Air Purifier Noisy?

Air purifiers are designed to operate with a soft hum that shouldn’t disrupt peace in your living or commercial space. If this sound becomes too loud for you to notice, it could be a sign of a problem with the device. In this post, Kemnitz Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. discusses the most common culprits behind unwanted noise from air purifiers.

Air Purifier

Debris and Dust Accumulation

One of the primary reasons for a noisy air purifier is the accumulation of debris and dust, especially on the ionizer pins or within the filter itself. Over time, these elements can clog the device, leading to louder operational sounds. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning and replacing filters, can mitigate this issue.

Incorrectly Installed or Clogged Filters

Just as with air conditioning or heating repair, proper installation is crucial for air purifier filters. When not positioned correctly, filters strain the air purifier and cause louder operation. Regularly replacing and correctly installing filters is essential for maintaining quiet and efficient performance.

High Fan Speed

Operating your air purifier at high fan speeds can also contribute to noise. While it’s natural for the device to be louder at higher settings, excessive noise at these speeds may indicate a need for maintenance or adjustments. Occasionally, this could also point to the fan becoming loose, requiring a more technical fix.

Location of the Air Purifier

The placement of your air purifier in your home can significantly impact its noise level. For optimal noise control and air purification efficiency, ensure the device is positioned in a well-ventilated area, away from walls and furniture that could impede airflow or amplify sound.
