Do Portable Air Cleaners Really Work?
You bet they do!
There is a reason why the United States government reimbursed people for hepa air filters if they lived near Ground Zero; and why they recommend them for homeland security, and why hospitals use them in infectious disease units. They work great!
Why choose a Portable Air Cleaner Over a Central System?
They are more efficient!
A central air cleaner will be able to filter out most of the particulates and remove most of the gases and odors. But it will never be as efficient as a portable, free standing air cleaner in a specific room, exchanging the air several times an hour.
Also keep in mind that in order to remove smaller particulates you would need a HEPA filter and the resistance of such a filter could restrict the movement of air in the HVAC system, which could cause problems.
Other reasons include lack of a central duct system, no installation costs, used only where needed, sized for the specific room, and of course... portability.
Puts the clean air right where you need it!
