Guide to Selecting a High Quality Air Filtration Unit

They come from a variety of technologies. Every air purification system offers a set of strengths and user-benefits. They also come hindered with certain weaknesses. Pay attention as you learn how to best combine air purification technologies.

The goal: Pull together the advantages; eliminate the disadvantages.

Air Filters – The Starting Point

This is your default air purifier. A typical high-quality air filter will remove contaminates as small as 0.3 microns. The strengths of a high-quality air filter system include:

Removes some bacteria

Removes most dust, mold spores and other allergens

Captures most solid particles.

Weakness include:

Has no effect on gases, chemical fumes or smoke odors

Cannot capture germs, viruses or other ultra-fine contaminates

Limited range of effectiveness

May enable breeding of micro-organisms.

Ways to Strengthen Basic Filtration

When selecting a high-quality air purification unit, consider these technologies that work with, enhance and compliment basic filtration methods.

Air Ionizer Systems – Designed to change the polarity of airborne particles, air ionizers create negative ions which cause a magnetic bonding of the affected airborne particles. As a result, even ultra-fine particles become too heavy to remain airborne.

Strengths include:

Removes particles up to 0.01 microns

Neutralizes bacteria, chemical fumes, cigarette smoke and viruses

Extended range of effect.

Weaknesses include:

No collection method

Fails to remove odors

Captures but does not kill germs, fungi and some viruses

Limited effect on airborne chemical particles.

Activated Carbon Air Filter Systems – Use highly adsorbent, molecular size pores to create a chemical bond that traps gases, liquid contaminates and other odorous particles.

Strengths include:

Most technologically advanced filter for capturing odors

Retains captured contaminates

Weaknesses include:

Poor performance against dust and other common allergens

Ineffective against micro-organisms

Limited range of effect.

Other Methods – Include: 1) Germicidal UV Lamps designed to destroy bacteria, germs, fungi and viruses; 2) Highly reactive oxidant Ozone Generators designed to destroy bacteria and chemical related odors.
