Since the outbreak of COVID-19, you may have noticed ads for new air filtration systems designed to help prevent the spread of viruses among patrons. Air purifiers work well at filtering out airborne contaminants, air pollutants, and allergens. During the holiday season when you’re hosting guests, you and your family may want to consider also investing in a whole house air cleaner to make sure there are no diseases spreading at your house. 

Edwards Royal Comfort is offering Bryant Evolution whole-home air purifiers that capture 95% of particles and inactivate 99% of select viruses and bacteria. This will help to protect you from COVID-19. A whole-house air cleaner will make it seem like there’s an air cleaner in every room. 

Why Do I Need A Whole-House Air Cleaner?

The best way to fill your house with clean air is to open the windows and allow the outdoor air to enter and cycle around your house. This may be difficult to do in colder months, or if you or anyone in your family has seasonal outdoor allergies. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, American’s spend almost 90% of their time indoors, which exposes them to 2-5 times the pollutants than they would be exposed to outdoors. 

Air cleaners, air purifiers, and air filtration systems all do the same thing; They filter out the contaminants in the air. A lot of these contaminants aren’t just on the floors of your house, they are living in your vents and HVAC system. That’s why it’s so critical to install a whole-house air cleaner to help reduce the airborne transmission of dangerous viruses, dust, mold, and other particles.

When you and your family get a whole-house air cleaner installed, your air is cleaned at the source. An air filter is attached to your HVAC system and cleans the air as it passes through the system. The filter makes your HVAC system less susceptible to common pollutants that clog it helping it last longer. This may be the ideal solution if you have an older HVAC system that you don’t want to replace. A new whole-house air cleaning system may be a selling point for your home. Buyers will love the idea of clean air in every room of their new home.

What to Consider When Comparing Whole-House Air Purifiers

If you’ve been searching around for air purifiers and trying to find the best way to improve your indoor air quality, you’ve likely noticed that there are several different options to choose from. When shopping for a whole-house air purifier, there are a few things to consider when comparing different units:

Particle Removal Capacity

Your air purifier will come with a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) that measures the air movement and purification effectiveness. The clean air delivery rate will tell you how quickly the air purifier will clean and purify the indoor air in any particular room size.

Filtration Type

There are several types of air filters to choose from and replacing them comes with their own price tag. HEPA filters are generally considered the best because they block out 99.97% of all particles, such as dust and mold, larger than 0.3 microns. Look for your filter’s Maximum Efficiency Reporting Values or MERV rating as well. MERV ratings are between 1-20, and the higher the number the more effective the air filter.

Energy Efficiency

High energy-efficient air purifiers will use less energy to clean and purify your home, keeping your utility bills low.

Maintenance Costs

When getting a whole air purifying system installed in your HVAC system, not only will you have to pay for the unit and the installation, but you should also factor in the cost of the filter as well. Not all filters cost the same.

Portable Air Cleaner Systems Vs. Whole-House Systems

Depending on what you already know about air purifiers and your existing level of interest in getting one, you might’ve started doing research into portable air cleaners. While these systems are certainly effective at controlling the airborne transmission of viruses and improving the air quality in a limited area, they aren’t able to provide the same level of protection as a whole-house air cleaning system.

A portable air cleaner can typically only purify the air and improve the air quality in a certain room, while whole-house air cleaners purify the air of the entire home. To reduce the transmission of airborne viruses throughout your whole home, you’ll need to install a whole-house air purification system.
