How to Make an Air Purifier

The most hated season in Central Texas is without a doubt, cedar season. If you live anywhere from Waco to San Antonio you have felt the effects of cedar trees or have friends & family who suffer it's wrath. To me cedar pollen means headaches, congestion, sneezing, and red itchy eyes...ah...ah...choo! I take all kinds of pills, nose sprays, and eye drops to combat the cedar but it's never enough.
Mountain Cedar
 Mr. Perfect did a little research on reducing pollen in our home with an air purifier. Along the way he found that making an air purifier was extremely easy, so we gave it a try.

What you need:
  • Box Fan (20 inch blade)
  • 20x20 high performance air filter
  • 1 big rubber-band

We made a trip to Wal-Mart to pick up the box fan and air filter.

The air filter has a 1500 microparticle performance rating and is an advanced allergen reduction filter... whatever that means. I was excited about the $3 off coupon I found on the package.

What you do:
Put the filter behind the fan and rubber band together.

Be sure the arrow on the filter points to the air flow.

Plug it in and breath a little easier.

It's not beautiful by any means but desperate times call for desperate measures!

  5. Shopping for the right air purifier can be confusing and frustrating. Some air purifiers on the market today actually pollute the air with harmful levels of ozone, a powerful lung irritant that can be especially dangerous to asthma sufferers.best air purifier for smoke

  7. Put a wet towel in front of the fan. In dry climates it will add some moisture to the air.

  15. Do you put the filter on the side that is blowing the air into the room or on the intake side? The side that normally would face the screen of a window so the air can be drawn in. Which side does the filter go on? I would think if it goes on the cooling end,then you loose it's purpose of cooling the room and it solely becomes an air purifier. Is that correct?

Tom Kabis has an MS in Environmental Science, JD and 43 years of experience. Stephen Sewalk, PhD in Civil Engineering, JD and experience in construction and environmental engineering. We opened KES because we are concerned that RADON mitigation and testing companies operating in Colorado are testing improperly and installing RADON mitigation systems improperly. In short, of the several hundred mitigation systems inspected fewer than 20% are installed properly and even less are operating optimally. Call for a free inspection and evaluation; fair and honest. Radon, occurring naturally through the degradation (radiation) of Uranium, is a Silent Killer and the #2 cause of lung cancer.
