Smoke Air Purifiers, Hepa Air Cleaners

You don't have to live with a smoker to appreciate the value of a air purifier that removes smoke from the air. Tobacco smoke has a curious habit of making its way under walls and doors. This is especially true if you live in an apartment or other building that has shared walls, floors, and ceilings. And it isn't always just tobacco smoke. In many parts of the country, smoke from wildfires fills the air with toxic fumes and soot during certain times of the year. (Another excellent reason to add smoke air purifiers to your home!) Even cigarette smoke from a previous resident or guest can have a way of lingering in carpeting, draperies, and upholstery fabrics. (This is a good reason to take small, portable air purifiers that remove smoke from the air with you when you travel, particularly if you have tobacco allergies.)

There's quite a bit of talk about HEPA air cleaners these days. But you may not know what HEPA air cleaners actually are. HEPA is not a brand name. HEPA is not an official certification. HEPA is simply an acronym, standing for High Efficiency Particulate Arrestor (air filter). It's a type of air filter that is used in air cleaning and purification equipment including air cleaners, air purifiers, and in better quality vacuum cleaners. Typically, HEPA air cleaners will filter airborne particles down to 0.3 microns in size, with an efficiency rating of 99.97%. If you place a HEPA air cleaner in your bedroom, it will simply not be able to clean the air in your living room or in other areas of your home. All HEPA Air Cleaners are only capable of cleaning the air in the room or open area in which they operate! Try as they might, it's impossible for them to pull the air through walls or doorways. If you put a HEPA air cleaner in the hallway between three bedrooms, you will mostly clean the hallway, not the bedrooms.

You should look for a HEPA-type air purifier with ionizer. The typical HEPA air purifier with ionizer filters out 99% of the airborne particulates as small as 2 micros within a room, yet is economical to purchase one for every room in your home. One air purifier with ionizer of particular note is the TheraPure air purifier. 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.
