Note - When selecting an air cleaner, ANSI guidelines recognize the AHA AC-1 test standard as an effective way to compare air cleaner performance. The AHAM AC-1 test standard measures how effectively an air cleaner cleans up airborne particles in a closed chamber over a set period of time.
This test standard results in a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) rating that can be used to compare relative performances of air cleaner units. The higher the CADR rating, the better
the performance. Tobacco smoke is one of the airborne particulates used with this test standard due to its extremely
small particle size. OAC100 CDR Ratings: Tobacco-Smoke +108, Pollen +
106, Dust + 91!OAC200 CDR Ratings: Tobacco-Smoke +156, Pollen +158, Dust + 146!
