What is your suggestion for a filter system to put in our new manufactured home that warns of formaldehyde?


My son makes large quantities of slime in our enclosed garage. I am concerned about the fumes from glue, fragrances and borax that he uses in bulk. My question is would the carbon filter be a solution at would you be able to recommend a purifier for our situation. Thank you.


Love your site and the work you’ve done.
But –
1. Carbon is inefficient at removing formaldehyde compared to other VOCs.
2. Most PID meters that use a 10.6ev blub will not register formaldehyde effectively. The energy needed to knock off an electron of formaldehyde is higher
3. The PID meter you are using is rather low resolution at 100ppb. You would be much better off with a meter with 1ppb resolution. See the ppbRAE3000. That’s what I use in testing.

Does the activated carbon filter get attached first or after the hepa filter? Your site is hard to navigate and find the information about the products and how to use them. I’ve been using the Cannon for 4 years w/ the hepa filters. Just got some charcoal ones to add… wish it was easier to find things .. Thanks!
