If you need to purchase or rent an air scrubber, there’s a few things you should know before calling a company that sells air scrubbers. At Priority Rental, we’ll help you answer these questions, but we highly recommend considering the following tips so that you get the most out of your air scrubber or negative air machine.
1. Understand Your Need.
First things first. You need to determine the purpose of your air scrubber, how long you’ll need to rent, and where it will be used. Are you looking to filter the air in just one room? or in a number of rooms?
2. Take Note of Your Environment.
The standard goal with an air scrubber is to have an average of 6 air turnovers per hour. However, the number of air changes per hour should really be defined by the environment you’re working with. Use the chart below as a basic guide to how many air changes you’ll need. Keep in mind that every situation is unique, and you should reach out to Priority Rental with any questions or concerns.
3. Know Your Space.
Before you make the call to order an air scrubber, you’ll want to know how much air space needs to be cleaned. At Priority Rental we rent two units– the Airrex HSC-HEPA2000 and the Dri-Eaz DefendAir HEPA 500.
When choosing a unit, it’s best to think about what you’ll be using it for. The Airrex HEPA provides a larger footprint and is better for bigger areas, as it has a higher rate of airflow. The Dri-Eaz unit is more portable and is great if you are looking to move it to different rooms. In the chart above, you can see how many cubic feet of air per minute each unit can filter. In some cases you may need more than 1 unit, depending on the space you are trying to filter.
