It’s a common misconception that pollution only exists outdoors. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Fortunately, you can reduce the pollutants inside your living spaces with an air purifier. 

Whole-Home Air Purifier

You can either get a whole-home air purifier or a portable unit for your home. Find out why the first option is the better choice here from a local HVAC expert. 

Whole-Home Air Purifiers vs. Portable Units

Whole-Home Air Purifier

Professionals install whole-home or in-duct air purifiers directly into the air duct path. These units are called “whole-home” purifiers because they can provide the whole house with air filtration. Whole-home air purification systems can remove up to 99% of airborne contaminants within your living spaces.

Don’t worry if space is an issue in your home, because this equipment won’t take up any room. It runs quietly and excels at removing allergens like dirt, dust and pollen. This equipment will contribute to improved indoor air quality and better sleep. 

Portable Air Purifier

A portable unit can only filter the air in a single room. You’ll need to move it if you want to clean the air in other areas of your home. In general, portable units produce a lot of noise while they’re running. Some models even produce tiny amounts of ozone, which is detrimental to your lungs. 

Why Choose a Whole-Home Air Purifier?

With an in-duct air purifier, all parts of your home will have reduced allergens and air contaminants. You also don’t have to worry about where you’re going to place it since it’s integrated into the ductwork of your home. Another great thing about a whole-home air purifying system is that it doesn’t require much maintenance after installation.
