Finding the Right Commercial Air Purifier
When you’re buying an air purifier, whether it be for your home or place of business, the trickiest and most important part is finding the right fit. HEPA filters, negative ionizers and electrostatic precipitators are all things we here at Alpine Air Products are more than familiar with, but the average business owner probably has no idea what they are. This type of terminology, if you are not already familiar with it, can sound like a foreign language making the selection process all the more daunting.
If you are not familiar with the details of and the differences between the various commercial air purifiers available on the market today, you don’t need to be intimidated by complicated jargon or the options available. Just use this handy selection guide we have outlined below to help you decide which type of commercial air purifier is the best fit for your business.
Things you need to consider before you choose your commercial air purifier include:
Appropriate Room Size
If you purchase an air purifier that doesn’t have the capacity to clean all the air in the desired area, you’ll have to redo the whole shopping process. Make sure the measurements of your rooms are as accurate as can be and double check the purifier’s appropriate room size. Most manufacturers will indicate the size of room that the air purifier can clean efficiently and effectively.
There are five common types of technologies commercial air purifiers use. They are:
- HEPA. Short for high-efficiency particulate air, this type of purifier works by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps harmful particles..
- Ionic. Rather than relying on fans to move air through filters, these appliances release negatively charged ions that electrify harmful particles. When they pick up the negative charge, they get attracted to the positively charged collection plates inside the machine..
- UV Lamp. A new air purifier technology, these work to clean your commercial space’s air by killing harmful air particles with ultraviolet light that incinerate microbial particles as they pass through it..
- Ozone Generator. These purifiers suck in the oxygen and electrifies it to transform it into ozone. When the ozone is released, its third oxygen molecule attaches itself to pollutants and eliminates them..
- Carbon Filter. Air passes through the carbon filter where the airborne gases, chemicals and odors stick to it through chemical reaction. They are essentially a sponge for all undesirable air particles.
What is it Being Used For?
Consider what you hope to accomplish by adding commercial air purifiers to your place of work. What type of indoor air pollution is plaguing your staff, customers or clients? Its intended use can really inform which air purifier you end up selecting.

What Causes Indoor Air Pollution?
For the most part, you probably think that there is nothing wrong with your commercial space’s indoor air quality, but the fact is that indoor air quality can make a huge difference in the performance of your employees. When you aren’t able to provide your staff with quality air at work, it is common for people to suffer from dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin, along with headaches, fatigue, shortness of breath, hypersensitivity and allergies, sinus congestion, coughing and sneezing, dizziness and nausea. But why is it that your workplace’s air isn’t as clean as it can be? Where are these pollutants coming from? There are three basic variations on the types of indoor air pollution.
Particulates include pet dander, dust, dust mites, asbestos dust, pesticides, pollen, post-fire ash, spray mist from aerosol products and more.
Gases include tobacco, paints, welding fumes, chemicals, varnishes, correction fluids, paint strippers, household cleaning products and more.
Germs, mold, bacteria and viruses breed in consistently moist and/or unclean environments. They are introduced into your home with water damage or when people enter your home.
There are many different reasons your commercial space can contain contaminated air. There could be pollutants hiding in the vents or it could be inside the building’s materials, which might seem like an insurmountable obstacle. Luckily, Alpine Air Products offers some of the most sophisticated commercial air purifiers money can buy. Using the latest technology, you will be amazed by how healthy your workplace can be when you invest in one of our commercial air purifiers. They are guaranteed to get rid of any contaminants that may be affecting the health, productivity and overall comfort of your team.
Are Commercial Air Purifiers Loud?
Many businesses, regardless of their field, are typically hesitant to invest in a commercial air purifier because they are worried that the purifier will end up being a big distraction. And while there are plenty of benefits to be reaped when you are providing your employees with the best possible indoor air quality, it might not seem worth it if you are also introducing a blaring sound that draws attention away from the task at hand.
The imagined threat of distraction shouldn’t deter businesses from investing in a commercial air purifier. The noise level of an air purifier depends on many different factors. The model, the fan operation speed and a person’s individual noise tolerance will all influence whether or not a commercial air purifier is loud enough to distract your employees. There are many different models we can offer you that are specifically designed to minimize noise if that is your priority. But ultimately, noise is subjective and what one person finds tolerable might be unbearable for another person. Poor indoor air quality affects us all in virtually the same way, detracting from our health and comfort.
So, don’t let this minor issue deter you from operating a healthier business. Your employees will thank you for prioritizing their health in the end.
Where Should I Put My Commercial Air Purifier?
Location, location, location! Sure, this phrase is more commonly associated with real estate, but we need to use it here to emphasize how important the placement of your commercial air purifier can be to its effectiveness. Choosing the ideal location for your commercial air purifier will ultimately be determined by the unique details of your operation, but we have collected some gathered some guidelines to help you make sure that it is in a position to work at maximum capacity.
Closest to the Source
If there is a particular area in your office where the air is a little bit off thanks to a foul smell or you are doing construction that’s been creating a lot of dust, that’s where you should look to put your commercial air purifier. Whenever you can place your commercial air purifier close to the source of contaminates, the faster it will be able to trap the particles reducing your indoor air quality.
It is important that you choose a location where the purifier won’t be obstructed by furniture or directly below shelves. Since most air purifiers have an intake near the front of the appliance, to make sure it is serving its purpose to the best of its ability, you need to make sure it has access to the many airborne particles that have contaminated your commercial space. So, if you think you have found the perfect place, double check to make sure that it isn’t obstructed so that it can work at maximum capacity.
Away From Electronics
Some electronics that run on similar wavelengths and can cause interference with your commercial air purifier from Alpine Air Products. Avoid placing air purifiers near televisions, microwaves and stereo equipment whenever possible. The good news is that air purifiers are computer-friendly, so you won’t have to rearrange your office to have high-quality air.
Working Without Interference
To maximize the effectiveness of your new commercial air purifier, make sure that all the doors and windows are shut. When you allow the air purifier to work without interference from hallways or other rooms, it won’t waste energy trying to pull in air from elsewhere.
We realize how counterintuitive this can be because you have no doubt been opening doors and windows to let fresh air in for your entire life. However, since small particles like dust and pollen are also in the fresh air outside, it’s only creating more work for your air purifier.
Consider Air Flow
The two biggest issues to consider when trying to decide where to place your commercial air purifier is where within the room would be the safest place and where the airflow will be sufficient.
As long as you don’t put it somewhere where it’s easy for people to trip over it, it should be safe. As for air flow, that depends on your building, but it is relatively easy to determine. It might take some trial and error, but you’ll eventually find the perfect place for your new commercial air purifier courtesy of Alpine Air Products.
