Fact: In general, the air inside your home is four to five times more polluted than outside air. It’s hard to believe, but according to Trane, approximately 87% of American homeowners are unaware of indoor air quality pollution.

When selected an indoor air cleaner, you will want to accurately measure the square footage of the home you are working to purify. The air cleaner needs to be efficient in handling the amount of air that will pass through the machine daily, but you don’t need to get one that’s too large because it will waste energy and money.
Finally, you will need to know how significant your indoor air quality problem really is.
