No matter how neat and clean you keep your Saint Augustine, Florida, home, it’s tough to improve indoor air quality without a little help. But how do you know whether a whole-home air purifier or a portable air cleaner will do a better job? From handling allergens and germs to coverage, find out how whole-home air purifiers beat portable air cleaners.
When comparing a whole-house system to a portable air cleaner, there’s no question that the former provides significantly more coverage. Most portable air cleaners address air quality issues in a single room or a limited area in your home.
In contrast, whole-house air purifiers improve air quality in every room. These whole-house units connect to your HVAC system, so they clear the air as your heat pump or air conditioner works.
Portable air cleaners can remove some allergens and contaminants from your home’s air supply. But their technology is simply no match for the filtration power of a whole-house air purifier.
At Ocean State Air Conditioning & Heating, we recommend the Performance Air Purifier PGAP, which can remove up to 75 percent of airborne particles measuring .3 to 1.0 microns. From mold and dust mites to pollen and pet dander, these powerful air purifiers can handle both seasonal and year-round allergens.
Most portable air cleaners can only remove select indoor pollutants from the air. But many whole-house air purifiers can eliminate germs and viruses, too.
The Infinity Air Purifier GAPA can inactivate up to 99 percent of germs and other contaminants it captures. It’s even designed to target viruses like the flu, measles and the common cold. That means a whole-home air purifier can even help keep your family healthy during cold and flu season.
