Frequently asked questions about Air Purifiers

Air Purifiers are generally separated into 3 categories. First are mechanical air purifiers, they clean the air by trapping dirt in a filter made of some type of media. Second are Electrostatic, they trap dirt by electronic magnetism. The Third uses some other device to clean the air of specific items; for instance UV filters remove live organisms.

The size of the area an air purifier will cover can be calculated in CFM. We provide a great tool to show you how many CFM you need to clean any area. As an example, the LakeAir Maxum air purifier will provide 275 CFM of clean air. That is enough to clean a room 20′ x 20′ 6 times an hour.

There are 2 really good alternatives for smoke. Both of these technologies use an activated carbon filter. The two type are HEPA and Electrostatic. HEPA cleans more thoroughly on a single pass. Electrostatic is about 3% less efficient on a single pass. Where electrostatic come out ahead is how many times it can clean the air per minute. HEPA air purifiers generally clean the air in the room 1 to 3 times a hour, where as an electrostatic cleans  4-12 times a hour. Both technologies work but there are many factors to consider. We devote a page to this question.

LakeAir air purifiers range from 42 to 65 db(a). That’s a sound level of  quiet bird songs to  a dishwasher. It is important to choose a model that is right for the area. 

The truth is that even though most dust particles are undetectable to the human eye and other senses, you need to be concerned about dust. Airborne particles (also known as Particulate Matter) are a mixture of microscopic solids and liquid droplets suspended in the air.  These nastys are made up up of a variety of particle pollution elements. What you think of as just dust might include chemical fumes, gases, smoke and biological contaminants.  Dust mites, animal dander, mold and pollen are likely sources.When inhaled, they can lead to respiratory health issues. Allergy and asthma sufferers are particularly at risk, as well children and the elderly. 

The EPA describes Volatile Organic Compounds as chemicals that evaporate at room temperature.  VOCs are emitted by a wide array of products used in home and nature.  Home products that emit VOCs include paints, varnishes, cleaning supplies, air fresheners, pesticides, building materials and even furnishings. VOCs are released from products into the home both during use and while stored. VOCs also come form nature. Radon and formaldehyde  and a host of other harmful gasses seep into our homes for the ground. According to the EPA, VOCs cause eye, nose and throat irritation, frequent headaches, nausea, and can also damage the liver, kidney and central nervous system.

In most cases the best room for a LakeAir air purifier is in he bedroom. You spend more time in the bedroom.  This will give you a better nights sleep and allow your body to better to recover from the stresses of the day. An Excel air purifier can clean a bedroom 15′ x 15′  for a few pennies a day and cost less than $500.00.

You should run your air purifier continuously. Indoor air pollution happens 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You don’t need to be afraid to run your LakeAir Air Purifier all the time. We have thousands of customers who run their air purifiers non stop. Many of these customers report to us that their air purifiers have been running  10 years plus without stopping for other than regular cleaning. Keep the clean air going with confidence.

People may not realize it, but we are exposed to ozone every day. Any electronic device, and device powered with electricity will produce ozone. From your TV and mobile phone to your refrigerator and vacuum, nearly every single device that uses electrical current will emit some small quantity of ozone. The amount of ozone these devices produce is often not even detectable and not a problem for people with respiratory problems or asthma. With air purifiers, there is a specific type of technology, ozone generators, that are still in use, but almost exclusively in commercial applications. “Ozone shocking” a space is when an ozone generator is placed in a space and allowed to run, filling the space with high levels of ozone. The upside to this is that it can dramatically improve air quality, in terms of removing particulate and pollutants from the air. The downside is residual ozone can irritate lungs and airways. Avoid any air purifier that uses ozone generation as its primary filtration technology. LakeAir Electrostatic air purifiers emit a small amount of ozone as a byproduct of cleaning the air. Our units have been tested to emit less than 50 parts per billion. This is less than the amount allowed by the State of California.

CFM represents cubic feet per minute. This is an important factor in deciding what air purifier you need for your purpose.  The larger the area  the more CFM will be required. Each LakeAir air purifier list its CFM output in the product description. 

There is an equation to figure CFM:


A 15’ X 15’ X 15’ living room 

Step 1:  15 x 15 x 15 = 3375 

Step 2:  3375 ft3 / 60 minutes = 56.25 ft3 per minute

Step 3:  56.25 ft3 per minute x 8 air changes per hour ( an average pollution level ) = 450 cfm (cubic feet per minute)

Or, you can use our easy IAQ Calculator to determine how many CFM you need.

Is it Pollen? or do I have a cold?

Is it Pollen or do I have a cold? When I was young, perhaps 7 or 8, I developed what we thought was a nasty summer cold.  My mother took me to the family doctor to get it checked out because it wasn’t following the usual pattern. The doctor conducted a brief exam and told us that it wasn’t a cold but I was allergic to the pollen of a certain species of water lily.   Mom wanted to know how he knew exactly what I was allergic to. He told her that it was the only plant in the area

Safe Air for Police Departments.

Dangers from Criminal Evidence Nearly every police department has an evidence room. Some have an evidence locker or even a large evidence storage facility. Dangerous items like narcotics are stored in these rooms.  There are many studies about the dangers of third hand exposure to drugs like meth amphetamines. These studies show that 2nd and third hand contact of narcotics can cause the same reactions as the users experience but on a smaller scale.  Adverse symptoms from working in close proximity to narcotics have been reported. Third hand narcotic exposure can be encountered in quantities that cause workers to test positive for

Pets Need Clean Air, Too

So Many Pets Sixty-eight percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, according to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA).  Most of those pets spend all of their time indoors, breathing, and sometimes ingesting, all of the same airborne pollutants that their owners do. Pets are affected three times more by secondhand smoke, house hold products,  and outdoor pollutants in the home.  These pollutants are more than irritating, they are dangerous! Do You Smoke? Your Dog Does Too! We already know the effects of smoking and secondhand smoke on

TESTING FOR VOCs … Despite your efforts to keep and maintain your home clean, you may still become ill due to indoor pollutants. Testing for VOCs in indoor air for the presence of contaminants and toxins is a measure to improve its quality and avoid health hazards. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that the average American spends 90% of their time indoors where the concentration of toxins is 2-5 times higher than outdoors. Here are important chemicals and toxins that you should look for when analyzing indoor air quality. Radon Radon is a harmful gas that you cannot smell or see. It is

What is a brand

More Than a Brand

This product is really more than a brand. Some 5 years ago we (Leigh and I ) got involved with the fine folks from LakeAir. The company has been around for over 35 years! We started out by helping them design a better website. From websites we moved to better product photography. Before long we were learning the ins and outs of the air purifier business.  Updating specifications sheets with new photos became our baby . We helped testing products to be sure they were still performing to specifications. We produced product and how to videos for the company. Next
