Types of Air Filtration Systems
LakeAir employs many types air filtration technologies to remove all types of particulate and gaseous matter.
1. Electrostatic Filters
Electrostatic air purification systems use an electrical charge to remove smoke, dust, pollen, and similar harmful allergens from the air in your rooms. Electrostatic units use a washable filter cell that is more cost-effective than some other air purifiers.
High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters clear the air of harmful particulates such as bacteria and viruses. They are more efficient than electrostatic purifiers at removing small particles and microorganisms, successfully eliminating 99.97% of particles.
Watch out for products that advertise HEPA-type filters because they aren’t nearly as effective as a true HEPA filter. LakeAir only ever uses such an air purifier technology.
Media air cleaners are made from a compressed pleated paper-like material that removes dust, pollen, pet hair, and similar allergens. When the pleats are straightened out, there are up to 75 square feet of surface that traps pollutants.
Media filters are economical purifiers that can last up to two years or more.
Additional filter Types of Room Air Purifiers
There are other types of air purification systems that are available.
Activated Carbon Filters
Activated carbon filters excel at removing odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other small airborne particulates. We use carbon-activated filters in all our air-cleaning products. There is a wide selection of activated carbon filter replacements available from our shop.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation Filters
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) air sanitization systems are often used by medical facilities because they deactivate DNA in viruses, bacteria, and mold. We use UVGI filters in many of our air filtration products to remove harmful particles.
Where to Put Room Air Purifiers?
Many people wonder where the best place is to put their portable room air purification units. The best place for an air cleaner is next to the source.
For example, if you live with a smoker who goes outside to smoke but stands next to an open window, you should place the purifier there.
Additional Placement Tips Include the Following:
Room air purifiers work best when in a limited, enclosed space, which means all doors and windows should be closed.
While fresh air blowing through your home is good for ventilation and air circulation, open doors and windows make air purifiers work harder because airborne pollutants keep coming in. You could consider only using your purifier after ventilating your home with fresh air.
The intake point should be in a position that allows the system to access as much of the room’s air as possible. This doesn’t include behind furniture, in corners, or under tables and shelves.
The unit should have at least two to three feet of space on all sides to increase the percentage of particulates absorbed
LakeAir's Tried and Trusted Room Purifiers Get the Job Done
Our room air cleaning devices and advanced filtration systems effectively remove the following:
- Allergens – Harmful airborne particles such as pollen, pet dander, and dust mites, which cause or aggravate allergies and respiratory conditions like asthma.
- Mold – Mold particles can be particularly dangerous for people with existing respiratory and lung conditions.
- Smoke – Activated carbon filters work in conjunction with HEPA filters to remove the smoke and smoke odor from your room. A HEPA air purifier removes all types of smoke, including wildfire smoke and other 0.3µm smoke particles.
- Indoor toxins – Indoor toxins come from products and items in your home; for example, upholstered furniture can release harmful air particles. Cleaning products also produce toxins that could affect those who suffer from shortness of breath and chest pains.

Frequently asked Air Purifier Questions
Air Purification Systems 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 amount of air cleaning needed for a room 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.
Most dust particles are undetectable to the human eye and other senses. Airborne particles are a mixture of microscopic solids and liquid droplets suspended in the air. What you think of as just dust might include metals, gases, smoke and biological contaminants. Dust mites, animal dander, mold and pollen can be found in dust. Dust reduces air quality and can lead to respiratory health issues. Allergy and asthma sufferers are particularly at risk. Young children and the elderly suffer more from indoor dust pollution.
The EPA describes Volatile Organic Compounds as chemicals that evaporate at room temperature. VOCs come from many products used in home. VOCs also occur naturally. Home products that emit VOCs include; paints, nail polish, cleaning supplies, air fresheners, pesticides, building materials and even furniture. VOCs are released from products into the home during use and while stored.
VOCs also come from nature. Radon and formaldehyde are VOCs that seep into our homes for the ground. According to the EPA, VOCs cause eye, nose and throat irritation. They cause frequent headaches, nausea. Worst of all these gasses can damage the liver, kidney and central nervous system.
In most cases the best room for a LakeAir air purifier is in the bedroom. You spend more time in the bedroom. This will give you a better nights sleep. It will 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. The Excel cost less than $500.00
You should run your air purifier continuously. Indoor air pollution happens 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Don’t be afraid to run your LakeAir Air Purifier all the time. We have thousands of customers who run their air purifiers non stop. Many customers report that their air purifiers have been running 10 years plus. They only turn them off for regular cleaning. Keep the clean air going and remove airborne particles with confidence.
People may not realize it, but we are exposed to ozone every day. Any device powered with electricity produces ozone. Every appliance or gadget that uses electricity produces some ozone. The amount of ozone these devices produce is often not detectable. This small amount of ozone is not a problem for people with respiratory problems or asthma.
There is a specific type of air purifier called an ozone generators. They are almost exclusively in commercial applications. An ozone generator is placed in a space and allowed fill the space with high levels of ozone. This is called “ozone shocking” The upside to this is that it can dramatically improve air quality. They remove 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. LakeAir ozone emissions are within the standards of 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 required to clean the air. Each LakeAir air purifier list its CFM output in the product description.
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, to 0.3 microns in a single pass. Electrostatic is about 3% less efficient. Where electrostatic come out ahead is cost of operation. Both technologies work but there are many factors to consider. We devote a page to this question.
We will provide in depth information on topics like the MERV chart and filter technology. Not every consumer will desire this much information. However, it is here for those who wish to have a better understanding about the products they purchase.
