let's clear the air.
- why do you need an air purifier?
Air pollution isn't just something found outside your door. Did you know the air inside your home is 2 to 3 times more polluted than the air outside? Having an air purifier makes cleaner air for everyone under your roof.
- how it works.
Air purifiers circulate the air in a room several times per hour. The internal fans pull in air and filter it through a series of air filters.The filters remove any unwanted particles and replace the room's air with clean air.
- how big?
Your purifier's listed square footage should be the same as, or slightly bigger than, your room's square footage. No dimensions? No problem. Think of it like this: small = offices, medium = bedrooms, and large = family or living rooms.
filter through your choices.
- replacement filter.
Most air purifiers utilize replaceable filters, but that's specific to the make and model of each unit. Not only are they good for 3 months, but they also capture even the smallest particles while having little to no mess when replacing.
- replacement bulb.
For UV models, bulbs are also needed. The bulbs help reduce airborne germs from passing through the filter.
Used in addition to a replacement filter, pre-filters are there to cure common household smells, such as cooking odors, tobacco, and pet odors.
- furnace filter.
As part of your home's central heating and cooling system, whole-house filters require less maintenance than portable units, and clean air is distributed throughout your entire home.
The economical choice. No need to buy another filter, although they're usually only in HEPA-type units.
