Air purifier

Hi all - I am moving into a new home with a newer furnace, but have to have some work done anyway to add a humidfier. The HVAC people and my GC recommend putting in an air purifier - GC likes the UV onew, HVAC recommends the Guaridan Air.

We do have allergies and asthma in my household. In current house we have an electrostatic air cleaner on the furnace, and use a high end room air cleaner in the bedroom where the boys sleep.

I'd appreciate any recommendations. BTW, we will be in the house for less than a year, then either selling or renting (we are building a new house)

Thanks much!

You might want to read this article on filtration. Be careful about your choices. There is a lot of confusion on air cleaning and the usefulness of it.....in some cases a waste of money.
