Using Air Purifiers for Dust

Dust less. Dust Happy.

Woman dusting at home

Do you ever feel like you can never stop dusting?  No matter how much you do it, and how clean your home is, there’s a new layer as soon as you sit down to relax.  Why is that? And what can you do about it?

Where does it come from?

Dust comes from soil, pollen, insects, dust mites, pets, carpet, upholstery, clothing and curtains.  There’s so much dust, because dust comes from practically everything!  

Stop stirring it up!

The vast majority of this dust settles within your home, often in the carpet, or in your air ducts.  Vacuuming your carpet regularly can actually stir up and propel dust into the air that came in on your pets or your shoes.

In addition, if you use low efficiency HVAC filters that don’t trap very much dust, you may just be stirring up more dust in your home than you are removing.  In addition, old air ducts can have decades of dust accumulated inside of them.  No matter how airtight your home is, the ducts can be a source of more dust in the air every time you turn on your heat or AC.

How to reduce the dust and dusting!

HVAC filters: The most basic line of defense

Alen carries premium pleated HVAC filters that can remove a good portion of the dust circulating through your HVAC system.

Air Purifiers: The recommended solution

Alen Air Purifiers all use premium HEPA filters which are capable of removing microscopic dust particles down 0.3 microns. For comparison, a human hair is nearly 50 microns in diameter!  So you can trust that there isn’t a dust particle that an Alen Air Purifier can’t capture.

Why air purifiers?

HVAC filters are a good basic line of defense. However, their primary purpose is not to reduce dust in your home, but instead to protect your heating and air conditioning system from having too much dust accumulate on it.  Therefore, even “high efficiency” Merv 11, or Merv 13 HVAC filters are removing less than 50% of dust particles down at 0.3 microns.  They are primarily focused on the largest particles that block up your HVAC system.

Air Purifiers can run 24/7.  Your HVAC system and HVAC filter are only capturing dust when it’s running, and your energy bill would be through the roof if you left it running every minute of the day.  An air purifier on the other hand can be placed in a specific room that is having issues, and run on a low speed permanently.
