Air purification systems can be stand-alone items or paired up with air filtration units to address three distinct types of pollutants in the home – dust particles, microbes and toxic chemicals. Routine air duct inspections and cleaning also help mitigate the effects of these issues.
Leaks coming from windows, doors, and elsewhere, allow the air in a typical, older, home to be replaced by outside air every 2 hours. Newer homes are sealed better, so the indoor air tends to be more stagnant.
Minimizing sources of indoor pollutants will make the biggest difference in indoor air quality, however high quality air purifiers can help asthma and allergy sufferers.
Most portable room air purifiers are primarily effective in the immediate vicinity of the unit, usually 300 to 500 square feet. Because of their portability, they can be used anywhere, like your desk, hotel room, or car.
Room air purifiers come in a variety of sizes and effectiveness. These portable systems are fairly inexpensive to buy.
Whole-house air cleaners purify the air in a home every time it flows through the HVAC system. These systems don’t take up any extra space because they are installed in the existing air handler system and create little or no noise in the living areas of the home.
The initial cost of a whole-home air purification system is four to five times the cost of portable room air purifiers.
You may need a higher quality air purifier if you are using for a large space, have pets, or you are near lots of foliage, like pollen-laden flowers and trees.
