Air Filters vs. Air Purifier - Heat Relief Heating & Cooling
Air filter or purifier

Air quality is one of the most influential factors on your health. If anyone in your home deals with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems, you may want to consider an air filtration or air purification system. In a post-Covid world, it’s essential to do what you can to protect your home from bacteria and viruses. Luckily, our Heat Relief Heating & Cooling team can help you decide between an air purification system or an air filtration system that improves the air you breathe.

What is the difference?

The difference is simple. An air filter is an installation built into your home’s HVAC system that traps the contaminants as they pass through the filter. But an air purifier, on the other hand, sanitizes the air by destroying up to 99% of pollutants. Dust mites, pet dander, odors, allergens, and dangerous pollutants don’t stand a chance. Heat Relief Heating & Cooling service has the solution for your Portland home, with state-of-the-art systems such as Bryant’s Perfect Air purifier.

Why not both?

There is a misconception that you can only have one or the other. You can have both, and you probably should. But, if you are trying to decide between one or the other, here are a few things to consider:

Is your home’s air filtration system enough for the size of your house? Not only are most homeowners unsure of the best air filter to purchase to stop harmful bacteria from slipping through, but sometimes, it’s just not enough. The larger your house, the stronger your air filtration system needs to be. If that’s you, an air purifier may be your next best bet.

Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance. It all comes down to maintenance. Whether you do it yourself or rely on a professional, maintaining any air system is essential. There can be repairs, filter changes, cleaning, and more. But, with the Bryant Perfect Air Evolution Series from Heat Relief, little to no maintenance is required.

Did you know that air filters tend to affect the airflow throughout your house? The higher the MERV rating – Minimum efficiency reporting, the more resistance against air flow and increased cost on your electricity bill. Air purifiers don’t have the same effects, allowing you to breathe cleaner without the extra monthly cost.
