Now that the weather is cooling down, I’ve been thinking about ways to improve the air quality in my home.
I’ve considered buying a whole home air purifying system, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the investment.
Whole home air purifiers are designed to work with your HVAC system to filter out harmful particles from the air. HEPA filters are the most effective type of air purifier, and they can remove most particles 0.3 microns or larger. That means they’re great for removing things like dust, pollen, and pet dander from the air. But whole home air purifiers are more expensive than furnace filters or heater filters. So if you’re looking to improve the air quality in your home, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision. I prefer to run my central HVAC system with its HEPA filter to clean the air in my home but I’ve been wondering if it is really getting all the dust from the air. I need to buy one of those ppm meters so that I can measure my air quality but I just spent a chunk of money on some sound equipment for my musical gigs so that is going to have to wait for a bit. I guess I could buy a smaller portable air purifier, like the one my old roommate had that used an ionizer to remove the debris from the air in the flat. I could contact her to see how much it cost and if it was worth it in the long run vs just running the HVAC system.
