Air Purification Systems
Air Purification Systems For Your Home
There are three distinct types of home air pollutants in Vancouver that can be dealt with by a home air purification system– dust particles, microbes and toxic chemicals. A home air purification system can be a stand alone unit, or paired with an air filtration system. Even with an air purification system it is important to get routine air duct inspections and cleaning to prevent the build-up of air pollutants.
In an older home, drafts coming from windows, doors, and elsewhere typically allow the indoor air to be fully replaced by outside air every 2 hours. In a new home, more efficient insulation means that it is sealed better, so the indoor air doesn’t circulate as much and tends to be more stagnant.
The best way to improve indoor air quality is to minimize sources of indoor pollutants. That being said, a high-quality air purifier can help asthma and allergy sufferers.
Room Air Purifiers
Portable room air purifiers tend to be most effective for the area directly surrounding the unit, usually a 300 to 500-foot circumference. Given their portability, they can be brought along on trips, used in the office, or left at your Vancouver home. Room air purifiers are fairly inexpensive and come in a variety of sizes and effectiveness.

Home Air Purifiers
A whole-house air purifier system is used in conjunction with your central air HVAC unit. These systems do not take up any extra space because they are installed inside the existing air system and duct work. They add no extra hassle or noise to the living spaces of your Vancouver home. Whole-home air purification systems usually cost 4 to 5 times as much as a room purifier unit, but purifies the air for your entire home.
You may need a higher quality air purifier if you are using it for a large space, have multiple pets, or if you are near lots of pollen laden foliage, which is common here in the pacific northwest.
