Air purifiers are an excellent way to combat the problem of pet odors. If you have pets, you will know how difficult it is to keep them out of the house, and you may have experienced first hand how difficult it is to keep the indoor air quality in your home to acceptable levels. In particular, it is not unusual for the air in a home with pets to be a lot more volatile than the air that you would be exposed to if there were no pets in the home. This means that you have to consider many factors when choosing the right air purifier for you, and if you are trying to combat pet odors you will want to pay particular attention to how much power and what type of filters you are going to need to get the job done.
The first thing that you should consider is noise levels. If you are trying to control pet smells from entering the room of your house, and you happen to live in a home where the noise level is high, you may need to choose an air purifier with different filtering capabilities. Some of the cheapest options only have a filter that is able to block a few percent of the smell from reaching your air vents, so even if the filter is effective it is not doing anything to address the problem. However, some of the higher end options can handle pet odors that are at a level that will affect your health as well as those of your family members, and can filter the air up to forty or fifty decibels. You will have to pay more money up front to do this, but in the long run it may be a good investment because it may help reduce the noise levels inside of your home as well as potentially save you money on heating and air conditioning costs. You should also note that some of these higher end units will have a higher output than the ones with lower decibel output, so you may need to consider this before deciding which option is best for you.
If you have a lot of bacteria in your home, and the air smells terrible, you may want to consider a combination of filters with different filtration capabilities. These can help to remove any excess odor and bacteria, but they may not filter out larger particles. Some of the most advanced air purifying systems can filter out particles up to a cubic foot. This will make them more effective at removing larger particles, but there are still a lot of homelabs that cannot afford to get these systems installed.
It is possible to use a simple air purifier that only filters larger air particles, but this is not something that most homelabs will be able to afford. If you are going to use this type of filter, you should consider purchasing a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter is designed to trap more than 99% of all microscopic particles. This includes bacteria, dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, and even dirt. The fact that the microscopic particles are so small makes it easy to trap them, which is what a HEPA filter does best.
Air purifiers for pet odors can be an expensive purchase, but it doesn’t have to be. You can find affordable models that will work well. You just have to know what features you want, and then shop for those filters. The HEPA and carbon filters are very affordable, and you can get your air cleaner at a number of retailers. If you are serious about protecting your family from air pollution and smells, do some research online and compare price and brands between several stores.
