Posted April 12, 2016

Why Buy an Air Purifier

From removing harmful airborne particles and odors, to reducing the time spent cleaning, an air purifier is a household asset. It can help clear your allergies, reduce the transmission of airborne diseases, and ultimately contribute to healthy living. With the different technologies available, it can be tough to choose which type of air purifier to purchase. We're here to help guide you:

How to Choose

Guardian Technologies' air purifiers include both HEPA and UV technology, which is the safe and recommended combination to effectively filter indoor air and kill harmful airborne particles. With Guardian Technologies, all of your air quality concerns are covered - the only thing left to do is select the right size for the room it is going in! You’ll also want to consider purchasing more than one HEPA Air Purifier, because each room of your home or office will likely require its’ own air purification.

Small & Table-top: Small air purifiers are effective in places like a bathroom or small bedroom. Click one of our small air purifiers below for more detail.

Medium: Medium air purifiers are effective in places like a bedroom, office, or kitchen. Click one of our medium air purifiers below for more detail.

Large: Large air purifiers are effective in places like an open-space entryway to a home, a basement, or a living room. Click one of our large air purifiers below for more detail.

A General Tip on High Ceilings: The bigger the space between the floor and ceiling --> the bigger the air purifier should be. This is because Air Purifiers are filtering the cubic footage of the room they are in. Higher ceilings equate to more cubic air within the room.
