Air Cleaners / Air Purifiers:

What Are Air Cleaners?

Air cleaners filter out dirty, mold, and other microscopic pollutants from the air. Air cleaners serve the same purpose as an air purifier—to remove impurities from the air—but do so in a different manner.

How Do Air Cleaners Work?

Air cleaners let air pass through a built-in filter to remove particles and are built directly into your HVAC system. They are installed between the air return duct and the furnace or air conditioner so that all air flowing in your home’s duct work is cleaned. Air cleaners also help prolong the life of your heating and cooling systems and prevent dust, dirt, and other debris from building up inside the units.

Difference Between Air Cleaners & Air Purifiers

A common question is, “Are air cleaners and air purifiers the same thing?” The  simple answer is —no.

Similar to an air cleaner, air purifiers remove contaminants from the air. However, instead of using a built-in screen or filter, air purifiers zap impurities using UV (ultraviolet) germicidal lamps.

What Do Air Cleaners / Air Purifiers Filter?

Air cleaners filter out a variety of air pollutants, including:

  • Pet dander
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Dust
  • Mold
  • Fungus
  • And much, much more
