Subject: RE: air purifiers
Hi. I found your site on Google and really like your info and analysis. One question that I did not find: which bedroom-sized air purifier would best to remove the smell of farts? Sorry to be so indelicate. I share a bedroom and this is a really important issue for me. The weather is getting cold and I'll have to close the windows soon.
A. Hi J,
I would agree this is a delicate subject.
Without getting too technical, human gas is mainly methane. Unfortunately, methane is not able to be adsorbed by gas filter media such as carbon. However, air purifiers with a good gas filter would help to some extent but I cannot guarantee it will alleviate the odor altogether.
The best air purifier would be the IQAir HealthPro Plus for $699.99. This is our most efficient air cleaner for particulate removal and it also has a very effective gas filter for gases and odors.
Another good air purifier would be the Clarifier for $499.00. This unit contains 15 pounds of charcoal and zeolite for the adsorption of gases and odors.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
