Do you or someone in your family in the Sarasota area suffer from allergies? If so, my condolences. This time of year has to be tough for you, even when you’re inside.
While spring certainly is beautiful season, it’s hard to enjoy it if you’re constantly coughing and sneezing from all the allergens and dust in the air.
However, it doesn't have to be the way. You and your family can enjoy spring by using an air cleaner to remove particulate pollutants from indoor air.
But which kind should you get? In this post we’re going to examine the pros and cons of both the portable air cleaner and whole-home air cleaner and then try to show you which one fits your needs.
A portable air cleaner (also known as a tabletop air cleaner) is a unit that can be taken to different rooms in your home to clean the air for pollutants and allergens.
A whole-home air cleaner is installed into your HVAC system’s return ductwork and aids in cleaning the air in your entire home.
There are a few different factors to consider when choosing the one that’s right for you. These include:
If you don’t have any pets, live in an apartment, and are on a limited budget, then a single portable air cleaner would be the best choice. However, if you live in a house and you own pets, then a whole-home air cleaner would be a more effective and cost efficient choice.
