One of the best ways to improve the air quality in your home is to use an air purifier. Not only do air purifiers keep the air you breathe truly clean but they help make your home a more comfortable and healthy space to live in. There are a few things to consider when looking for a pure air purifier, including the features you need and where you want it to be placed.
Understand Your Air Filtration Needs
An air purifier benefits your home and office for many different reasons. Besides getting rid of old, stale smells that stick around from pets or from the dinner you had the night before, air purifiers can help to improve several medical conditions as well.
If you or a family member have a medical condition such as allergies or asthma, air purifiers may help to reduce the pollutants that cause them, and therefore lessen symptoms.
Common air pollutants include:
- Pet dander
- Smoke particles
Sensitivities to these or other air pollutants can cause difficulty breathing, eczema, or worsened allergy symptoms. A pure air purifier helps to remove contaminants from your home, making it safer and cleaner for your family.
How To Choose the Right Air Purifier
There are many different types of air purification and filtration systems available. While they each have their specific uses, you want something that can address any needs that you, your family, or your home has. Here are a few options to consider when purchasing an air purifier:
The air purifier unit you need will depend on the size of the space you are cleaning. It should be able to filter all the air in the designated area multiple times per hour.
If your space is small, you can choose a smaller purifier that fits in with your decor while still covering your whole area. If your rooms are larger open spaces, consider getting one that has greater capacity to clean the entire space.
EnviroKlenz Air Systems effectively filter up to 1,000 square feet of space and clean the air three to five times each hour. These systems work well for living rooms, offices, and other large open spaces.
You want to find a good place to put your purifier that will help purify the whole space. Large stationary air purifiers usually sit in one spot in your home or office to work their air-cleaning magic. Before deciding on a spot, make sure it’s free of obstacles that could keep the air purifier from efficiently cleaning the entire space.
If your purifier is a larger model and you also like to redecorate or move around your furniture often, consider buying a portable model that has smooth rolling wheels for easy moving or relocating throughout different rooms in your home.
Air purifiers use different types of filters to clean the air. Filters come in a few different materials. Fiberglass or cloth filters will help clear your space of some large particles, while HEPA filters are the industry standard for removing particulates like dander, dust, and pollen. They can be made of metal interwoven with fiberglass that helps attract and attach to the pollutants. Medical grade HEPA filters can be made of a finer paper to catch even more small bacteria and viruses out of the air for maximum protection.
Our Air Systems use two types of filters to clean the air in your home. Each of their systems uses a patented EnviroKlenz Air Cartridge made with earth minerals that latch onto pollutants and neutralize them completely. These filters destroy microscopic pathogens, chemicals, and VOCs. The Air Systems also use an H11 HEPA filter as an additional layer of filtration to trap common household air
UV lights are used in some air purifiers to cleanse the air. UV-C bulbs deactivate bacteria, mold, and viruses using short-wave ultraviolet rays. Units like the Air System Plus with UV lights sanitize the interior portion of the unit from filtered bacteria and fungi, and they don’t produce ozone. If you have a family member who is at high risk for illnesses, this is a good option as an extra layer of protection.
Air purifiers use a fan and motor to pull dirty air through the unit’s filter system, pushing clean air out to your room. Some units can create excess background noise that’s easily noticeable.
Find one that is quiet and won’t interfere with daily life. A low hum can blend in, while louder models can make it hard to hear over and can interrupt everyday life.
What About HVAC Filters?
HVAC filters can go right into your HVAC, making it easier to clean your whole house. HVAC filters come in many different sizes and thicknesses, depending on what you need for your home. These come in different materials, just like the filters in other purifiers, and can work with your mobile air purifier to thoroughly clean your home’s air space. Make sure to check the specifications in your heater to ensure you get the right size of filter. The material you use depends on your personal needs. While you normally want to change them every ninety days, consider where you live. If you’re in a neighborhood with construction, nearby highways, or frequent wildfires, you may want to change them more often.
