As everyone knows, being around smoke from a forest fire is extremely difficult and dangerous as smoke inhalation can be deadly. For California this past year, the forest fires have been nothing short of horrific. Many homes were lost and smoke hung in the air for weeks in many areas of California.
Pure Air Systems, an Indiana based company, has been making fan powered, HEPA based air filtration systems since 1985. Their systems are capable of being used either in conjunction with an existing HVAC system or as stand alone units. The partial by-pass configuration of the units allow for complete filtration of the home environment while also adding the ability to introduce outside, filtered fresh air to pressurize the home.
A homeowner in the San Francisco area purchased a PAS Model 600HS HEPA Plus system to do just that. His ability to bring in outside air through the 600HS unit and pressurize his home allowed him to stay inside and almost eliminate any smoke or odor from coming into his home. In fact, many of his neighbors also came to his house to escape from the smoke that was everywhere in the SF Bay area.
The 600HS unit has three filters. A dual layer ring panel filter to capture large particles and keep the HEPA clean, a 10 lb carbon filter to remove odors and a scanned 99.99% commercial grade HEPA filter to remove sub micron particulate. Pure Air Systems also makes larger versions of this filtration system ranging from 50 CFM to 2,000 CFM. These systems have been on the market for over 34 years and are the best performing HEPA based air filtration systems on the market today.
