When the weather turns cold, we spend more time indoors. That’s unfortunate for those of us who enjoy being outside. Additionally, the air we breathe outside is much cleaner than the air we breathe inside – five to nine times cleaner in fact.

Given that, it makes sense to consider air purifiers that will remove harmful items such as pet dander, mold, bacteria, viruses, and more. There are two ways you can go:


The following table compares the two alternatives.

Whole House Portable
  • Purifies air in the entire house
  • Eliminates odors from ductwork
  • Operates itself
  • Additional UV capabilities to kill bacteria, viruses, mold, and dust mites
  • Portability
  • Can focus on most used rooms
  • More affordable
  • HEPA filtration removes particles that are mostly invisible
  • Professional installation likely required
  • More expensive
  • Must be compatible with HVAC system
  • Limited coverage
  • Will need multiple units to cover entire house, increasing expense
  • Potential for ozone emissions
  • Will not absorb odors in ductwork
