How to Determine the Best Size Biozone AirCare for Your Home?
Start by calculating the size of space you need to clean. If you have a 1200 square foot home, you would need the Biozone 2000 which is the only Biozone that can cover that square footage.
Make sure you don't choose a Biozone that covers a much larger area than you have. The reason is that once the Biozone cleans the designated area, you might notice a clean, somewhat metallic smell in the room. This means the Biozone has done its job. While most people really enjoy this fresh clean smell, the smell can become overwhelming if the purifier is too large for the area.
You should select your Biozone air purifier based on the pollution level, square footage, and ceiling height of each area you want the air cleaner in. If your floor plan has a lot of walls and doors you will probably need a purifier in each room or on each floor. On the other hand, if you have an open floor plan you could get by with one larger purifier. The following guide will help you in deciding what size Biozone is right for you.
Our standard ratings assume rooms with average to light odor and contamination. If the condition of that room is affected by other contaminants, we have developed a set of rules that incorporate the use of a contaminate multiplier factor to better estimate the size of the purifier required.
|Contaminant Factor||Description of the Target Area|
|1||Light Odor, No Pets, No Smokers, etc...|
|2||Light Odors, No Pets, No Smokers, etc...|
|3||Moderate Odors, 2 Pets or Mild Smoking, etc...|
|4||Moderate Odors, Multiple Pets and Smoking in the Home or Business, etc...|
|5||Strong Odors, Moderate VOC's, Multiple pets and/or Smokers, ongoing pollutants such as restaurants, hair salons, vet offices, etc...|
|6-10||Extreme Odors, Heavy VOC's, Bars with Heavy Smoke, Nail Salons, Commercial Chemical or Animal Areas, etc...|
Example 1: given a 1,000 to 1,500 sq. ft. of area in a single-level home with one indoor smoker. Multiply the 1,000-1,500 by the contaminate factor of 2 to get 2,000 to 3,000 sq. ft. depending on the layout of the house (consider the larger open spaces and overall air flow, the number of rooms) you can either purchase two stand alone Models of a 1000 and a 2000 unit (3,000 sq. ft. total), or two single stand alone Models of 1000 to reach the 2,000 sq ft total.
Example 2: given a 500 sq. ft. of area in a single-level home with occasional smoking and a couple of pets. Multiply the 500 by the contaminate factor of 3 to get 1,500 sq. ft. A 1000 model with a 500 model could be purchased, or one 2000 model for the entire room.
