Besides dust, invisible particles like pollen, bacteria, viruses, pet dander, dust mites, and mold may all be floating around inside your home. One of the ways you can address indoor air pollution is by investing in an air purifier. Here's a quick primer on HVAC air purifiers.
If anyone in your home suffers from respiratory ailments, or you are simply concerned about indoor-air quality, you may be wondering what the differences are between air cleaners and air purifiers. The straight answer is that an air cleaner and an air purifier are, and do, the same thing — remove airborne contaminants to make your home's indoor-air quality more healthful.
Air purifiers can provide relief from spring and fall pollen allergies, as well as other air contaminants, but only if you use them correctly. Correct use includes finding just the right location for your air purifier.
