Whole House Air Filtration: The Difference Between Filters & Air Purifiers

Whole House Air FiltrationAre you considering a whole house air filtration or purification system to freshen up the air in your home? If so, there are many options to choose from. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates air inside the home can be 4 to 40 times dirtier than outside air, since houses (especially newly constructed houses) are tightly sealed spaces that often entrap both indoor and outdoor contaminants and allergens. Finding a solution to rid your home of these unwelcome airborne substances can eliminate odors and help your family breathe better air, but before you buy, carefully consider what air filtration and purification product is best for your space.

The traditional method of air filtration uses a filter to catch and contain airborne particles. While such systems remove many impurities from the air, they fail to eliminate them entirely and require filter changes that can prove messy. Whole house air purifiers, on the other hand, can be designed to not only catch contaminants, but also destroy them to provide healthier air throughout the entire home. More advanced air purifiers utilize Ultraviolet (UV) and Ozone lamp technology to destroy contaminants, and there are no messy filters to replace. For the best results, consider combining the benefits of your HVAC system’s air filters with an advanced whole-house air purification system to have the cleanest air possible in your home.
