March 28, 2008, Newsletter Issue #83: How to Choose an Air Filtration System, Part One

Tip of the Week

Are you interested in controlling your air, but don't know how to evaluate an air cleaner or house air filter? One of the most important things to consider when shopping for cleaner air is the size of the job.

Are you interested in filtering the air for the whole house? Or are you concerned with individual rooms such as the garage, a room for painting or ceramics, smoking rooms, or other fume-heavy areas? You'll need to choose the right sized system for the job. A portable unit could be the right answer in some cases, but if you generate fumes, dust, or smoke on a regular basis, consider "whole-house" solutions, including electronic filtration and specially designed replacement furnace filters. Don't forget that fumes, dust, and smoke will travel and dissipate into other areas of the home, and should be controlled over the wider area.
