If you have a lot of allergy problems, or, you just know that there is a serious issue with the air quality in your home, there is a solution. The solution to correcting your indoor air quality issues can be a little bit on the expensive side of things, so you will need to spend some money. First, before you go investing a lot of money, you will need to find out exactly how bad the air quality is in your home. This can be done by using an air quality test kit or air quality monitor. To do this for little cash, the best product to get would be the Temtop P200 Air Quality Detector. This device can be purchased for around 50 or 60 dollars, and it will give you a good idea of how serious the air quality issue is. If the bad air quality seems to be focused on just in one room, you may be able to get away with buying a portable air purifier to clean the air in that room. However, if your entire home turns out to be the issue, then you will have to take that plunge and invest in a whole home air purification system.
There are many different brands and models of whole home air purification systems out there. You will need to decide which one is for you. If I may give a personal recommendation, I would suggest the Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner. Also known as the model 5000, the Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner has been rated the absolute best in whole home air purification systems for three years in a row by several product rating magazines. One of the good things about this whole home air purification system, is that there is no need to have to clean the collector cells on a regular basis. This specific whole home air purification system is easy to maintain verses other whole home air purification systems currently on the market. The Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner will get rid of about 80% of all the air borne virus infected air particles that no other air purification system can do at this time!
This air purification system also removes about 94% of the respirable dust that causes issue with people who have asthma. It will also get rid of around 95 to 96 % of mold, spore sized air particles, as well as pollen, which sets off most of us who have allergies. The Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner is also not hard to move around if needed. It’s only about 18 inches high, and the weight of the Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner is a pretty light 38 pounds. One other perk about The Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner, is that the system comes with a 5 year warranty on all parts! So, if something happens to go wrong with your whole home electric air cleaner, you shouldn’t have to worry about the expensive costs of calling a certified heating and air conditioning specialist from your local HVAC company.
Now, let me tell you a little bit about the installation of the Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner. First and foremost, before you even begin, make sure that the thermostat in your home is turned off! If the thermostat is on, you could possibly end up getting a lethal electric shock. So again, be sure the power is completely off! The next step for pre-installation would be to disconnect the power source to your furnace or air handler (whichever one you have). From there, the actual instal can begin. You can refer to the instruction manual for the diagrams and specifics of installing your Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner. Although you can do all this yourself if you really know what you are doing, I do highly recommend getting a heating and cooling professional, or someone from an air cleaning service to do the install. These people are the true professionals, and it will not only guarantee your safety and perfect workings of your new Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner, but it will also keep you from making a mistake that will break the air cleaner. This would most likely void that 5 year warranty that I mentioned earlier on!
Getting either a heating and cooling professional or air cleaner professional will not break the bank. So do not be afraid of the installation cost. After everything I have told you about the Aprilaire Whole Home Electric Air Cleaner, if you are still not feeling confident that this is the right whole home air purification system for you, then please do yourself a favor and do some research on the product. Don’t just take my word for it. If after you use your air quality detector, you find that a whole home air purification system is not what you need to correct your indoor air quality issues, then portable air purifiers are what you need to be looking at.
When it comes to portable air purifiers for a one room issue, let me suggest the Plug-In PURE air purifier. This is very cheap at roughly 50 dollars, and it plugs right into a socket in your wall! This portable air purifier is also very eco-friendly. Which, this will add to the healthy air quality you are seeking in that specific room that has the less than desirable air quality! If you may need something a little larger in the portable air purifier department, let me suggest one more, which is another PURE company product, simply called a portable air purifier. This one is a little more expensive, usually running between ninety to one hundred dollars. But the regular PURE air purifier is more ideal for someplace like a master bedroom or a living room, if that happens to be where your bad air quality is located in your home. It is also ran by 100% pure essential oils. I really hope all this information on air purification can be of some help in pointing you in the right direction to cleaner, healthier atmosphere in your home!
