Many people are under the assumption that their HVAC system is all they need to keep their air as clean as possible. This isn’t always true in some cases.

Studies have shown that the air inside can be more polluted than outside. This is why customers look to air purifiers to clean the air in their homes. If you are new to air purifiers, here are some things you should know about how they work.

Three-Stage Filtration

The best air purifiers go above and beyond the air filters in your HVAC system through a three-stage filtration system. Here are the three stages:

  • Pre-filter: Similar to the air filter in your HVAC system
  • HEPA filter: Rated to get 99.7% of the microscopic particles out of the air
  • Carbon filters: Defends against smoke, chemicals, and other foul odors


One great feature of smaller air purifiers is their portability. Some units are designed to clean the air in a 200-square-foot area in about half an hour. This means you can move it easily from room to room to clean the whole house without purchasing a cumbersome unit.

They Ionize

If you are interested in the strongest cleaning power in an air purifier, shop for one with an ionizer. Our NATE-certified technicians can help you select one that achieves better indoor air quality for your home. This device latches on to pathogens in the air like viruses to kill them before they are even filtered. Sometimes you have you keep your enemy on their heels to win the fight.
