Indoor air quality has a significant impact on our health, and in many cases, we need to install an air purifier into our heating/cooling systems in order to help clean the air in our homes. Historically these purifiers have relied heavily on expensive, frequently-replaced HEPA furnace filters to physically remove allergens and toxins from the air. However, there are now more advanced and effective technologies found in various device configurations.

In fact, the EPA reports that concentrations of some pollutants in your home are two to five times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. And we spend 90% of our time indoors.
