Electrostatic Air Filter, Indoor Air Purification

An electrostatic air filter works by using synthetic fibers that create a static charge to attract particles. Electrostatic air filters are available in both plain and pleated models, and range in price from approximately $15 to upwards of $100. Both disposable and reusable electrostatic air filters are sold. The disposable ones should be replaced at least quarterly, if not more often. Although reusable electrostatic air filters are designed to be simply hosed off and reinserted, even they have to be replaced periodically. So you can see how purchasing an indoor air purifier that utilizes an electrostatic air filter can quickly turn out to be a very expensive proposition. What's more, an electrostatic air filter blocks only 10% to 35% of microscopic particles (depending on the model chosen), whereas a HEPA-type filter, like the ones found in TheraPure® indoor air purifiers, are up to 95% effective at microscopic particle removal.

When it comes to indoor air purification, your best bet is the permanent HEPA-type filters found in TheraPure indoor air purifiers. It never needs replacement. A periodic wiping with a damp cloth and a bit of household soap and it's good to go again. Indoor air purification doesn't have to be an ongoing expense. Indoor air purification can be as simple as plugging in your TheraPure. TheraPure is available in four different sizes, for small, medium, and large rooms, and even confined spaces like closets. Then there's TheraPure's Triple Action Purification Process. The process begins with the permanent HEPA-type filter, which removes both allergens and pollutants. Next the UV lamp kills bacteria and germs on contact. Third comes the Photocatalyst filter, which removes Volatile Organic Compounds such as household chemicals, and indoor air pollution.

If you've been reluctant to purchase indoor air purifiers for your home or office because you think they're as noisy as a room air conditioner or a clothes dryer, you're in for a very pleasant surprise. Most room air purifiers, including all TheraPure models, are silent air purifiers. Silent air purifiers, as the name implies, do their job quietly and unobtrusively. In fact, silent air purifiers are so quiet that you can put them in a baby's room, nursery, or conference room. You'll never find yourself shouting to be heard over them. The reality is that they'll quickly blend right into the background, and you won't even notice that they're there. Especially since their tasteful, ergonomically-designed style fits any décor.
