Air Experts Discuss Whole Home vs. Room Air Purifiers

Air Experts Discuss Whole Home vs. Room Air PurifiersAir purifiers are an effective way to deal with the many airborne contaminants that thrive in the Martin County area’s warm, humid air. While room and whole home air purifiers each have their place, they don’t offer exactly the same benefits.

Room Air Purifiers

A room air purifier is a portable device designed to clean the air within a limited area. Many combine several cleaning and purification methods, such as a carbon filter to remove odor-causing particles, a HEPA filter to remove fine particles, and an ionizer or electric air cleaner to trap more fine particles.

If you want HEPA filtration, it’s easier to get it with a room air purifier. These are harder to install with whole-home systems. The small size of room air purifiers means they cost much less than whole-home systems. The only set-up required is plugging it in, so there are no installation costs and you can enjoy clean air as soon as you get the device home. If all you want is cleaner air in one room, such as the bedroom while you sleep, a room air purifier is a practical choice.

Whole-home Air Purifiers

A whole-home air purifier sits inside your heating and cooling system where it purifies all the air passing through, then sends clean air to every room in your house. It’s more cost-effective than buying several room air purifiers and saves you time on maintenance, too. It’s possible to include HEPA filtration, but your technician might need to do some extra work, such as adding a partial bypass.

A whole-home system runs along with your heating and cooling, so you won’t have to bother turning it on and off. Because it’s hidden away, it creates less noise. By cleaning the air throughout your home, it also protects your HVAC system from the damage dust and mold can cause. If you want cleaner air in more than one room and appreciate convenience, opt for a whole-home air purifier.
