Whole House Air Purifiers Review

What are some whole house air purifiers?

We have carried the Amaircare 10000 Whole House HEPA Central Air Purifier for a number of years and continue to recommend them as an excellent option for whole house air purifier HEPA filtration system. What’s great about the Amaircare 10000 is that it can be retrofitted to your existing central heating or air conditioning system, which is why so many of our customers have enjoyed them so much over the years.

What are some of the downsides of whole house air purifiers?

The problem with most central air purifier systems like the Amaircare 10000 is they only work when your central furnace fan is blowing. Running that blower extra has the possibility of adding to your central heating or air conditioning system costs, so it will certainly increase your electricity bill. What’s makes the Amaircare 10000 so effective is it’s 3 stage filter, from pre-filter, HEPA filter, and ending in a VOC filter.

How much square foot coverage does a whole house air purifier have?

 

I still think that using HEPA air purifiers, especially in your bedroom, is a good idea on top of a central air cleaner. That being said, we now offer a central whole house air purifier system, and for those of you that hate noise, the advantage is the fan noise is confined to your furnace room. The air purifier does have to be installed by a contractor, but does not seem to be more than a half day’s work. You WILL need to have sufficient space for this system- it stands over 4 feet high, and my own furnace room is so small we are having a hard time figuring out how to squeeze it in. You CAN remove it and take the central air cleaner with you if you need to move.
