Whole House Air Purifiers
Air purifiers come in three basic types: expensive, more expensive, and OUCH. So how do you separate out the hype and bring a breath of fresh air to the subject? It's called caveat inhalator, or, breather beware! There seems to be an inverse relationship between the amount of research done and the money wasted.
If you have radon, a whole house air purifier is the only way to protect your family. Radon seeps in through your crawl space or basement. It is found naturally in soil and in rock in certain areas.
But, there is only one way to know if you have radon. Contact your state and ask for a free testing kit. Most states have them. If the test is positive, it is critical that you buy an air purifier. You can be certain that a whole house air purifier is your only defense in the battle against radon.
The Whole House Air Purifier to the Rescue
Whole house air purifiers can remove many troubling issues. Mold spores, dust, pet dander, smoke fumes, some radon, and pollen can all be captured in an air purifier's filters. If you are prone to allergies, whole house air purifiers can also be very beneficial. A whole house air purifier as it applies to radon is set up in your basement or crawl space. A fan vents the radon-rich air out from the basement or crawl space floor. Metal ducts pump the air from the fan of the air purifier inside the basement or crawl space into the outside air.
Sealing up cracks and any gaps where air can get in will practically eliminate any radon threat. Other air purifiers can also remove radon from inside your home. They can remove radon from upper floors. These air purifier systems can have an optional filter installed that remove the radon gas and clean the air of other contaminants.
If you have a problem with dust, mold, or mildew, these whole house air purifier systems can eliminate those problems while also protecting you from radon.
There are benefits to buying whole house air purifiers. The air purifier's unit is placed in your basement or furnace room. For that reason, the noise is not an issue. Most furnace rooms are placed well away from living areas. You will not hear the air purifier when it runs, so noise is no longer an issue.
A whole house air purifier will take care of the majority of your living space. If you live in a home with multiple levels, only one air purifier system will be needed. Eliminating the need for two or more air purifiers can ease your budget considerably.
Granted, the price of whole house air purifiers can be twice or three times the cost of single room air purifiers. If one single air purifier unit is not controlling your dust, dander, and pollen issue, however, you may need to consider whole house air purifiers. No single air purifier unit will control radon. If radon is your issue, whole house air purifiers become necessary!
You may think a whole house air purifiers costs a lot of money. In fact, they are expensive, but not as expensive as you are thinking. For around a thousand dollars, you can have a reliable air purifier system. You can breathe the air in your home without fear. No cancer, no deteriorating lung tissue. You'll be breathing clean, fresh air!
It is all too easy to simply follow the yellow-brick infomercial, but Oz is not necessarily the cleanest city in the universe. If one is to seek reality in a highly commercialized market, then the green glasses have to come off. Look to those who are not- at least directly- profiting from a direct sale of their own product.
