September 2018 Trivia Contest Winner Announcement

Your home is supposed to be your oasis. But pollen, dander, dust, and other irritants in the air can quickly reduce the air quality of your residential paradise. While air filters can certainly help, most air filters are not fine enough to trap irritants like mold spores and dust that cause allergy flare ups and reduce air quality. Homeowners need to go one step further to improve their home’s air quality by investing in an air purification system.

However, you should know that not all air purifiers are created equal. There are several different types of air purifiers; some have the ability to filter out larger particles like dander, hair, and dirt, while others trap teeny tiny particles like germs, viruses, odors, and mold.

Below, we describe what air purifiers are and breakdown the several types of air purifiers so you can choose the best one for your home.
