Commercial Air Purifier
The New Comfort Model HMA/03-700 is a professional air cleaner that is designed for the hardest jobs. The commercial/industrial grade 03 filter will remove even the strongest odors from unoccupied places very quickly. While other cleaners just mask odors, the New Comfort “Knocks out odors at their source”. It cleans the air similar to how nature can clean. Ozone, being one of the natures most powerful oxidizing (odor removing) agents, attaches to airborne pollutants, and through the process of oxidization, breaks down the molecular structure and neutralizes, or destroys, the odor producing pollutant.
A commercial air cleaner is an air purifier that is used to service a business of some sort. It may be a hospital, computer hardware lab, a manufacturing company or even a dentist’s office. All these places need air purification to some degree. The reasons may be different from each other, but they are needed none the less. Some air purifier companies even cater directly to a particular type of business like IQAir does. You can check out some cool videos of the kinds they have at it air purifier.
Technology for air purification
Another difference that is possible is the technology used for air purification. Some places like a dentist office or a hospital want to get rid of viruses, bacteria, and mold so it doesn’t get into open wounds of patients. Computer Hardware companies don’t want dust and pollen getting on the circuit cards while they are being manufactured because it would mess up its ability to move information and electricity. These only need technologies like an air purifier HEPA filter, charcoal air purifiers, and home UV air purifier.
Of course there are other technologies that just haven’t been increased in size to work at these huge commercial buildings and are more made for home use. They would need to market it to them and make them believe their product could help them and some places have, but most consumers don’t know about them because they aren’t marketed to the home consumer widely.
Ozone air purifiers
The other side of the ball is ozone air purifiers, which create ozone to purify the air of mainly odors and smells. Ozone also attaches itself to other particles that may be bacteria, viruses, dust, pollen or mold and makes them collect and weigh themselves down to the ground. Some of these are even commercial electronic air cleaners that allow you just to suck in air and keep the charged particles inside the unit and not use ozone unless you want too. I think they give you the best options, but they are not made strong enough for commercial purposes.
I will say that these are probably great for people that can stand to have a little ozone floating in their home, but you have to make sure you get a quality unit that conceals the ionic technology within the machine and to not let it spill out in mass quantities throughout your business and home. You also have the option of possibly using a photocatalytic oxidation air purifier that silent destroys bacteria and viruses and is relatively new technology that I am still currently testing for my reviews. Seeing that it has been tested and used by NASA and FEMA makes it even more appealing since you don’t have to worry about ozone production and yet you can do all the same things even better.
-Works up to 3500 square feet per treatment in unoccupied spaces! Uses 3 large commercial Ozone plates and also uses UV rays to clean the air
-Has 1-hour timer mode (so it automatically turns off when the treatment is done) and also a ”HOLD” mode for running it constant
-Product Type: Air Purifier
-Control Type: Manual
-Room Size: 3500 Square Feet
The one thing that is important is commercial air filters that you may or may not be using with your type of air purification. Even though some ozone air cleaners have carbon filters and HEPA filters just to add some extra cleaning ability to the device. One thing I have discovered is that Honeywell commercial air cleaner filters are easy to find for almost all air purifiers on the market. They make them for furnace air purifiers as well so you can get cheap and natural air purification through systems you already have installed in your house.
