Educating End Users Remains a Major Challenge for Air Purifier Manufacturers
Manufacturers in the North American air purification equipment markets are yet to reach a consensus on what exactly constitutes a true high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) purifier, since not all purifiers are tested and certified according to the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) standards. This often leads to products of poor quality and reliability entering the market, which results in negative product perception and customer dissatisfaction. Added to this, manufacturers have to contend with the lack of end-user understanding of testing procedures performed on air purifiers. Therefore, the primary challenge for manufacturers - particularly those that strictly adhere to stringent industry standards - is to educate customers to help them make informed purchasing decisions. While this is likely to be a costly and long-drawn-out task, agencies such as the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) are already making significant efforts to resolve this problem.
