Simply so, do air purifiers use much electricity?
According to Energy Star, the average air purifier consumes 550 kilowatt hours per year in electricity, or approximately as much energy as a modern refrigerator.
One may also ask, how much does it cost to run an air purifier? Depending on the airflow speed, Most HEPA air purifiers consume around 50-100 watts per hour. With 12 hours of daily operation, the electricity will be around $3-5 a month or $36-60 annually. With 24 hours operation, you just need to multiply the numbers by 2 so the cost would be at $6-10 a month or $72-120 annually.
Then, do air purifiers increase electric bill?
Some are much more energy efficient than others. HEPA air purifiers typically consume 50 to 200 watts of electricity. To put this into perspective, a lamp uses approximately 60 watts and a computer uses 365 watts. Using an air purifier probably isn't going to impact your electricity bill tremendously.
Do Dyson air purifiers use a lot of electricity?
The power consumption of the fan is relatively modest. If you were to run the Pure Cool at setting level five with oscillation nonstop for a year, your electricity cost would be $13.20 (at 15 cents per kWh).
