    Air purifiers

    Anyone have experience with brands/types of residential or commercial HEPA air purifiers?

    This is the purple air site I use for my area outdoor levels, highly recommended:

    https://www.purpleair.com/map?opt=1/.../40.836/-124.4
    (about an hour south of the Oregon border)

    Can see maybe 1/16 mile down the highway in a 65mph zone.

    Already have one filter going full blast and another on the way, curious what other west-coasters are doing for indoor air quality.

    Hey Humby,
    Those fires are wreaking havoc (and reeking as well!) on your coast. I hope that you are safe.

    I had a HEPA at my office, a small Holmes, I believe, however I gave it to a coworker some years ago, so I have no help to offer, just well wishes...

    My vacuum has a HEPA filter though!

    Best of luck!

    I suppose the first step would be to upgrade your HVAC filters to HEPA ones and change them often. If you want to get fancy/do better, you can also add activated carbon filter before the regular ones for the AC.

    Other than that I am not sure about the room/standalone purifiers, as far as I know they basically work on the same principle forcing air through HEPA/carbon filters.

    What is this A/C thing you speak of? Outside the barn there is some discussion but I want to be on the winning side of said discussion.
