home air filtration systems?

Recommended Posts

ok. been noticing a LOT of dust accumulation lately. I can't seem to control it. seems mostly since i'v e adopted my doggie. 

 

 anyway.....it'd be easy if I had forced air hvac, but I don't. I feel like there HAS to be some sort of stand-alone system I can install myself relatively easily. I've been posting a bunch of what I feel like are stupid questions lately....but there's a ton of knowledge here on this board. 

 

 anyone got any suggestions?

Whole home in one unit? No, not without ductwork and an air handler. You wont get the air flow from.the rooms further from the filter. Just get a few room size hepa filters and put one in each room. 

I heat my house with wood and forced hot air. Burning wood creates allot of dust, I added an Aprilair air purifier on my furnace and that helped. Then I added a few hepa filter air purifiers and adding them made a big difference. 

The replacement filters can get pricey if you go through them allot.

it would almost seem that if I were to put one of those in the living room, one in the bedroom, and maybe one in the kitchen...…..

 

 my house is less than 1,000 square feet. I was also considering(don't laugh dammit) running a couple old box fans with a heap filter from a central air unit taped to them...….

Without central HVAC, you're limited to room filters.

I got one of these for my eventual smoking room/area.  But they do really well for regular dust/dander/etc.

Install a Big Ass Fan - https://www.bigassfans.com/fans/essence/  It will create such a wind storm it will just blow everything out of the house - perhaps even you and the dog :)

Don't forget mom, it might blow her out too.

You’ll cook the motors, but they are pretty cheap.

Skip the filter - just stick it in a window and blow the dust outside.

Make sure your vacuum is hepa filtered.

So no central anything, ok. Do you have any air conditioners? You can run those without the cooling, most have a "fan only" setting, and most also have a "recirculate" setting to not bring in outside air in the winter.  

Swap out the "standard" air filter it came with for one from the forced air type, even if you need to trim it to fit, and I believe you'll accomplish what you want.

No A.C. units?  There are stand-alone room filters, but most likely you'd need more than one, even with only 1,000 sq. ft.

Shave the dog? :mutley:

in the summer i would. in the winter? not possible. i hadn't thought about that filter for the vacuum

 

I was in an apartment once in the Midwest that had radiators. I had a window open with a fan blowing out 24/7 for months. I packed the frame around it with towels. No cold air got in. But you’re probably right, might not be good for a small house. It would probably suck cold air down the chimney to replace the warm air you blow out.

When I finally took the thing out the window screen looked like a furnace filter.

so much for my ghetto rig on the 50 old fan. it worked when I took it outta the window last spring. doesn't now. motor feels really tight, and doesn't sound very healthy when I get it moving. no brick n mortor stores.....home depot or lowes at least....have any of them. I won't order one online 'cause this is only supposed to be a stopgap till I figure out something better....like the purifiers you guys linked.

@1LtCAP:

I have access to a lightly used Oreck XL Air Purifier... last I know of it was working fine. Do you want it? You can have it for nothing. You can either make arrangements to pick it up in Bridgewater --- or we can pass it through a few posters on here to get it to a closer pick-up location for you.

It looks kind of like this one, but it's not the flat black... it has a shiny woodgrain finish:

PM me if you're interested.

  • 48 How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"

    1. 1. How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"


      • Very, (Do not want to pay for slide cutting, Looks cool, etc.)
      • Neutral (don't have a preference either way)
      • Not at all (not a feature I am looking for).
    2. 2. How much are you willing to pay for "Optics ready"? (i.e. gun is cut for an optic)


      • Up to $50
      • $50 to $100
      • $100 to $200
      • $250 or more
      • None. If it is not standard part of the gun, not willing to pay more for a model with it.
    3. 3. Why are you looking for Optics Ready?


      • Planning on adding optic.
      • Want to have the option just in case
      • n/a

      • Other Reasons

    • I'm a huge fan of the SI stock stop. Really threw my local detective for a loop when we saw each at the range the other day. He is used to the old fashioned way and is surprised that both ranges and civilians are coming up with newer ways to meet the BS requirements here in NJ without destroying their rifles or magazines.
    • These two look nice (have 2 HG permits): https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/8010/glock+ug3430103mos+g34+g4+9m+us+17r+as https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/27797/ruger+mark+iv+22+long+rifle+(lr)+44+10%2b1+black+polymer+grip+black The Glock already has the optics. Is that MkIV compatible with optics at the rear? Are those prices good? Also, was wondering if someone could suggest a website that deals with NJ and ships to their FFL dealers.
    • I'd rather go for a 34 instead. I figure the greater barrel length will help a little with recoil. Yes, but I've shot before. Just not my own.
    • Is it written anywhere how NJ measures an overall length of a firearm? ATF measures it with a stock unfolded or extended. I always assumed NJ was the opposite, nut can't find it in writing.
