When searching for air purifiers, you’ll quickly find that not every device is created equal. Choosing the right air purifier for your family can mean the difference between slightly improving the air quality in a single room and enjoying fresh, clean air throughout your home. So how can you make the right choice for your Forest Acres, South Carolina, home? From allergen capabilities to air-exchange rates, discover how to find the perfect air purifier.
Opt for a Whole-House Model
For a cheap fix in a small space, a standalone air cleaner might be able to do the job. But if you want to improve air quality dramatically in every room of your home, we recommend investing in a whole-home air purifier. These models connect directly with your HVAC system so your family can enjoy clean air in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, and other rooms in your home.
Know Your Allergens
If your family members suffer from seasonal or year-round allergies, make sure that the air cleaner you’re considering can tackle anything that makes you sneeze. For example, some models may eliminate dust and odors, while more advanced models like the Trane CleanEffects air purifier can clear particles of pet dander, pollen, and even bacteria as small as 0.1 micron.
Check Air-Exchange Rates
When you’re serious about clean air, you’ll want to choose a purifier that clears the air continually. Basic models might clean the air in a given space once or twice per hour. We recommend investing in a model that can cycle the air in your home up to six or eight times per hour, producing significantly fresher air.
HEPA technology is known for its superior filtering capabilities, but using a HEPA filter with most HVAC systems can cause serious air pressure problems. Instead, go high-tech with a CleanEffects air purifier that’s up to eight times more effective than HEPA technology.
