Depending on the environment you live inas well as personal circumstance, having an air purifier might just be a necessity for your home. If you suffer from asthma or other cardiovascular troubles you understand the importance of breathing in fresh clean air to function normally on a daily basis. Most people use air purifiers to remove particles such as pet dander, pollen, dust, dust mites, smoke and other allergens from the air. Reducing the amount of exposure to specific allergens such as these can reduce the triggers and symptoms of these health concerns.
Air purifiers come in many different shapes and sizes and the cost will vary. For example a Hamilton Beach 04383 True Air is compact for use in a small room or office and costs around $50. A larger version of something similar such as the Honeywell 50250 Pure Air HEPA Round Air Filter will cost you around $170. The Honeywell is able to work in a much larger work setting and is ideal for a room up to 390 square feet.
The HEPA model air purifiers use what is called a HEPA filter and will need replacement at every service interval. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the air inside of your home could be as much as 100 times more polluted than the outside air. Its important to have one of these air purifiers in your house or office especially if you are living in a city environment where pollution exists in our day to day reality.
