COVID-19 has kept many of us in our homes for more than a year. We consider our homes to be the safest place from the virus. We shouldn’t feel so secure. While we wear masks and social distance in public, many of us do neither at our residences. This creates a false sense of security. In fact, according to findings of New York’s contact tracing program as many as 70 percent of new cases originated in the home. This is the result of close contact between family members and small gatherings of people. It’s called living room spread and there’s an effective tool that already exists to combat it: HEPA air purifiers.
Residential HEPA Air Purifiers
We have long understood the effectiveness of HEPA filters in preventing pathogens from circulating in indoor environments. Now, even the nation’s foremost expert on the virus, Dr. Anthony Fauci recommends the use of high-efficiency particulate air systems to keep indoor air free of the virus. In the same way large venues have used HEPA filters to improve ventilation of their spaces, so too could they be put to use in the home. In fact, Dr. Fauci uses air filtration systems in his home.
HEPA air purifiers are effective in eliminating particulates like viruses but they have other benefits as well. They trap mold spores before colonies form and keep allergens out of the air which lowers the risk of respiratory problems. HEPA filters remove dust mites, pollen, and pet dander, which are major allergy triggers in the home. They also trap volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) which get released by paints, carpeting, upholstery, and household cleaners. They eliminate odors too.
Dyson Air Purification
Regardless of the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor air quality is important. It improves the health and wellbeing of everyone in the home. Dyson makes several HEPA air purifiers for residential use.
Dyson HP04 Pure Hot + Cool Link Tower
The Dyson HP04 Pure Hot + Cool Link Tower is a HEPA air purifier plus a heater and fan. It uses Air Multiplier™ technology to produce 77 gallons of airflow every second. To further clean the air, a HEPA filter captures 99.97 percent of allergens and pollutants including gasses such as formaldehyde and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). The air-cleaning machines use smart technology to deliver readings on air quality so you can monitor indoor air quality in the home. It also pushes a steady stream of either hot or cool air around the room to ensure comfort while it rids the air of pathogens.
Dyson TP04 Pure Cool Link Tower
Another effective tool in the fight against pathogens is the Dyson TP04 Pure Cool Link Tower. This HEPA air purifier has both HEPA and carbon filters. It features powerful airflow thanks to 10-speed settings that oscillate up to 350 degrees to move purified air around any room of your home.
No matter which residential HEPA air purifier you use, it’s important to replace the filter as needed. A 360° Glass HEPA Filter works with either Dyson air cleaning device.

For school classrooms and commercial spaces, the AeraMax Professional series of air purifiers are the solution. These devices use a 4-stage filtration system to trap viruses and improve overall air quality. They use HEPA and carbon filtration, but bipolar ionization too.
