Air purifiers do what Mother Nature would if she lived inside your home.
Did you know the average person spend most of their life indoors at home? Seems crazy, but when you account for all the hours you spend sleeping at night, it begins to make sense. Then add in the time you spend awake, getting ready for work and relaxing at home afterward. But have you thought about the difference in air quality between your home and work? Office and retail buildings use central HVAC systems with air purifiers to manage air quality because they have a responsibility for the health of visitors. Shouldn’t you be doing the same for yourself and those that spend all those hours at home with you?
The Need for Air Purifiers at Home
When we breathe, we don’t just take in the gases in the air. We also breathe in every pollutant, carcinogen and toxin that happens to be floating around with it. When indoors, all those substances remain stagnant, because there is none of that Seattle wind or rain to blow or wash them away. Air purifiers do the job Mother Nature would if we could tolerate bad weather indoors. Those of us seeking fresher, cleaner air tend to choose air purifiers to do the job over open windows and fans that blow pollen and dirt into the home, making more cleanup work.
Which Air Purifier Is Best For You?
There are plenty of purifier options out there, and one of them should work for you. The Carrier EACB Air Cleaner is great for the average homeowner, filtering particles as small as 1.0 micron. This affordable model offers clean, healthy air quality control. And if ease of use is your main concern, then the Carrier EZXCAB model may be what you need. You can change the filter on this model in no time. Unfortunately, you will sacrifice a slight amount of air quality, when compared to the EACB.
If you’re willing to spend a little more for the highest air quality, as well as ease of use, go with the Carrier Infinity Air Purifier. This germicidal air purifier will kill an impressive 99 percent of all germs and mold particles and captures 95 percent of particles as small as 0.30 microns. In Seattle’s moist climate, this level of air purification can be a lifesaver for anyone with mold allergies.
If you don’t have the budget for the Infinity and you still need better filtration than the EACB can offer, go with the standard Performance model instead. It filters 97 percent of germs, pollen and mold and 75 percent of particles as small as 0.30 microns.
You may not see as drastic a decrease in airborne particles and pathogens when using the smaller Carrier models, but we all have budgets to work with. For small, rarely occupied spaces, the smaller models will work just fine.
