Air Filters vs. Air Purifier – Avis Home Solutions
Air filters vs. Purifiers

Does anyone in your home deal with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems? In today’s world, it’s essential to do what you can to protect your home from contaminants and viruses. Believe it or not, the air within your house can contain just as many, if not more, pollutants as the air outdoors. Luckily, Avis Home Solutions can help you decide between an air purification system or an air filtration system that will improve the air quality.

What is the difference?

Although both are important to the quality of the air you breathe in your home, people often mistake the two for the same thing. An air filter is built into your home’s HVAC system to trap bacteria and allergens. Air purifiers aim to sanitize the air. Think of an air purifier as an air “superhero”. This external appliance can “zap” and destroy up to 99% of contaminants, including dust, pet dander, odors, allergens, and dangerous pollutants from the air. 

Why not both?

Yes, you can have both an air filtration and air purification system in your home—the more, the merrier. But, if you are trying to decide between one or the other, consider a few things.

The size of your home can play an essential role in which system is better for you. Typically, the larger your house, the stronger your air filtration system needs to be. Most homeowners aren’t sure what air filters to purchase to mitigate harmful bacteria and pollutants.

Most homeowners aren’t sure what air filters to purchase to mitigate harmful bacteria and pollutants. How much pollutant is slipping through, despite the best filtration system you have? Our team at Avis Home Solutions can help you determine what impurities are still circling. An air purifier may be the next step to clean breathing.

Air filters affect the airflow throughout your house, whereas air purifiers do not—the more substantial the filter, the more resistance. The more resistance against air flow means the higher your electricity bill. Purifiers can mean cleaner air without the strain on your electricity bill.
