How to Pick the Right HEPA Air Cleaner
Indoor pollution has quickly become a real issue. Newer homes and buildings are made to be as energy efficient as possible by keeping the cool and warm air inside when they need to be. However, since buildings and homes are so well insulated and the air is not getting circulated, it gets even more polluted than it is outdoors.
Of course, that doesn't mean you should opt for a building or home that is not energy efficient. All it means is that you need figure out a way to keep the air clean so you really should check out hepa air cleaners.
They can purify the air that isn't getting circulated so you get the best of both worlds, a energy efficient home and clean air.
So what are some of the pollutants that you can expect to deal with on the inside of your home? Dust and mold are very common, as are pollen, viruses, and bacteria. Just shake the pillow or bed spread in front of a window where the sun is shinning in.
There are also volatile organic compounds which include things like cleaning materials, building materials, solvents, and pesticides that tend to hang around your air. Did you know that even the fragrances that come from perfumes and cologne can lead to health problems and allergies? We have lots of customers who can’t be around people who wear them.
However, having the right hepa air cleaners placed throughout your home or office can allow you to not worry so much about these things, which is why it's important to invest in the right one. There a big differences in hepa air cleaners.
The most effective hepa air cleaners get rid of odors, gasses and dust with ease. You need to check for a high CADR or CFM rating on the unit, as that measures how much clean air the device will be able to deliver in a single minute.
Most air cleaner talk about coverage in square feet, and you want to get one that has coverage of no less than 100 square feet (10 x 10 room). They really should be talking in cubic feet. Having an air cleaner that has a higher cfm rating just means it will change out the air faster in the space.
Another thing you want to make sure of is the unit uses activated carbon, as that will get rid of gases, VOCs, toxins, or unwanted odors. Some of our air cleaners have specially designed filters to remove very specific toxins.
Air Cleaners for chemically sensitive include the Austin Air Healthmate Plus, IQAir GC Multigas air purifier and the AirPura P600. We also carry the AirPura T600 specifically for tobacco smoke.
