Air purification systems are great for people with allergies, pregnant women and small children – but buying any old air-purifier from the store may not give you the results you want.
According to research from MIT, air pollution causes around 200,000 deaths a year in the United States. In fact, aside from asthma, air pollution has been linked to autism and pre-term births as well.
The problem is indoor air can be substantially more polluted than outdoor air (especially in the winter). And with a quarter of all American homes having an air purifier, it’s no wonder more and more people in Springfield, Mo. are looking into purchasing an air purifier.
Why You Shouldn’t Buy an Air Purification System from the Store
There are many cons to buying an air purifier from the store.
They can be costly to maintain.
There was a study completed and published in an article from Consumer Reports where they broke down the cost of maintaining a store-bought air purifier.
|MODEL||PRICE||ANNUAL ENERGY COST||FILTER COST||TOTAL, FIRST YEAR||TOTAL, FIFTH YEAR|
|Blueair Blue Pure 211+||$300||$52||$140||$492||$1,260|
Air filters can be costly.
Aside from the energy cost of running a store-bought air purification system, the filters can be costly (the average being around $50 a pop) and need to be changed every three months or so. That can add up over time!
Store-bought air purifiers can take a lot to maintain.
Having to change or clean the filters every three months is a lot of maintenance, and, let’s be honest, it can be easy to forget when life kicks in!
Not all air purifiers are energy efficient.
Be sure to check and see if your air purifier has an energy star. This can cost significantly less money to run and maintain.
Not all air purifiers are created equal.
Purchasing a stand-alone air purifer may help for a small room in your home, but not all can clean the ENTIRE room. If that isn’t enough, heavier contaminants such as mold and dust mites fall quickly to the ground and never even see the air purifier.
Some air purifiers are loud.
The hum of an air purifier can definitely be a downside – especially if you have it in your bedroom or the living room. Constantly adjusting the volume of the T.V. isn’t our idea of a good time!
In summary, if you are going to purchase an air purifier, it may be in your best interest to talk to a professional and do some research on different air purifiers.
The Airmaster Ultra is a different kind of system is a whole-house system that mounts right into the ductwork of your home. Since it is an air purifier, there is no need to replace filters and while the bulbs may need to be replaced, this maintenance is few and far between (only once per year).
Lastly, the Airmaster Ultra is quiet AND it also catches air particles at .3 microns or larger – this is 4x the particle capture of a similar-sized HEPA unit. Give us a call today and we will give you a free estimate! (417) 881-4000.
