Choosing proper and best room air cleaners or air purifiers for your home and family can be very frustrating! There are hundreds of different brands and models of home room air cleaners and home room air purifiers available in big box stores to choose from and it is often very confusing when choosing the proper type of air cleaner or air purifier that will properly clean the dust, allergens, smoke and out-gassing chemicals from your homes indoor air.
Almost all big box department store home/room air cleaners and home/room air purifiers are VERY LOW QUALITY and made in China! Most types of Chinese made air cleaners and air purifiers are actually plate ionizer air cleaning machines, HEPA filtered air cleaners or HEPA filtered air purifiers.
Here Is Why Big Box Department Store Air Cleaners & Air Purifiers Are Low Quality And A Poor Choice!
The almost worthless ionizer collector plate types of room air purifiers that people place in their home have no real filtration system, fan or motor to exchange the dirty air in the room and into and through the air purifier machine. These units can only attract dust and allergens onto a flimsy metal dust collector plate from less then a 1/8 of an inch away from the thin collector plate. After the collector plate becomes lightly coated with dust it can no longer attract more dust onto the plate and it becomes 100 percent useless! Examples of plate ionizer units are the Ionic Breeze and the Ionic Pro.
Low quality Chinese made store bought HEPA room air cleaners and HEPA room air purifiers are mostly noisy (loud) and not sealed well. This causes them to leak a high amount of dirty contaminated air back into the indoor environment to breathe. This dirty air is often coming from around the HEPA filter itself and through the unit’s unsealed plastic cases! Note that the great majority of low quality Chinese made air cleaners and air purifier contain very little low quality carbon to absorb odors and out gassing chemicals from the indoor air environment! Most units contain a few grams of carbon dust that is impregnated into a low quality pre filter that has to be replaced often at a high aftermarket replacement cost!
While almost any HEPA home room air cleaner or home room air purifier is better then an ionic plate type of air cleaner or air purifier, most big box department store HEPA air cleaners and HEPA air purifiers can only exchange the air in an average 150 square foot single bedroom space only 2- 6 times per hour. This is an inadequate air exchange rate per hour, which will not allow the air cleaner or air purifier to do a good job of keeping the room clear of dust, chemicals and allergens.
Choose Only High Quality Room Air Cleaners & Room Air Purifiers For Your Home!
High quality room air cleaners or room air purifiers placed in your home will be very quiet and will include a certified HEPA air filter! Both the HEPA air filter and the unit’s case will be properly sealed to not allow dust, allergens and out-gassing chemicals from blowing back into the homes indoor air environment while the unit is operating! A high quality HEPA home air cleaner or HEPA home air purifier should be able to exchange the air in an average sized 150 square foot bedroom space up to 12 -15 times per hour. They will also do a good job of cleaning the air of dust, allergens and chemicals in rooms or open areas up to 1000 square feet. Most high quality HEPA room air cleaners and HEPA room air purifiers for the home will contain pounds of activated carbon mixed with a safe natural mineral called Zeolite in order to remove any odors and out gassing chemicals that could be coming from newer carpeting, home furnishings, pets and pesticides in the home.
NOTE: Many manufacturers refer to HEPA room air cleaners and HEPA room air purifiers to be used in the home as the exact same type of product mostly for marketing reasons. This fact sometimes frustrates people because they do not know the difference between the two types of units. However the real difference between HEPA air cleaners and HEPA air purifiers is that HEPA air purifiers also have the ADDED ability to kill viruses, bacteria and mold spores in homes. The best way to kill these sometimes-dangerous antigens is with an added ultraviolet light system where (UV) light is beamed onto the surface of the intake side of the HEPA filter where the allergens and debris enter in. When the ultraviolet light is focused onto the intake side of the HEPA filter it will be able to kill viruses, bacteria and mold spores before they can work their way into the center of the HEPA filter. HEPA home air purifiers with ultraviolet light systems are a big benefit for people with weak immune systems and people going through chemotherapy, organ transplants or bone marrow transplants. HEPA filtered home room air purifiers with ultraviolet (UV) light system are also very beneficial to people that live in homes with mold and bacteria problems and they will generally better protect your home and family while extending the life of the HEPA filter.
We feel that the TRACS is the best HEPA home/room air purifier on the market with a ultraviolet (UV) system. A good economical HEPA room air purifier for the home with a UV light system is called the Cleanaire D-2100.
NOTE: It is also important to know that in the long run the after market filter replacement cost for high quality home room air cleaners & home room air purifiers is often 3 times less money then the low quality Chinese made air cleaners and air purifier units found in department stores.
How Many Room Air Cleaners Or Room Air Purifiers You Will Need To Do The Proper Job In Your Home!
Most people will place one room unit in each bedroom that needs to be kept clean of dust, allergens and out-gassing chemicals and one room air-cleaning unit in the family room where the most time is spent watching TV or relaxing when away from the bedroom(s). Many people with home offices will place a unit in their workspace as well. Some people make the mistake in purchasing so called whole house air cleaners to reduce the allergens in their home. There are many kinds of systems that claim to be able to clean the air in an entire home. WHOLE HOUSE AIR CLEANERS DO NOT WORK! Click Here To Read Why!
