Air filtration when surrounded by winds and dirt?
Not aware of an accepted study that shows such airborne dirt is significantly harmful to human health. On the other hand, dust on everything else can be problematic. Perhaps an efficient air cleaner, running while the sun shines, is a worthwhile endeavor. Looking for options.
I used to buy large Honeywell filters. They had a large round paper filter surrounded by a carbon mesh filter. Each successive Honeywell had a shorter life than the model it succeeded. So I gave up on the project after 4-5 Honeywell's had bit the dust. The MBA/Economics myopic dash to improved short time profits reared its ugly head so many times that millions of consumers eventually hung their heads in despair and abandoned the project to prop up domestic manufacturing. But I digress - because that is what I do.
The local winds built the world famous Great Sand Dunes National Park. They are pretty inspiring due to their immense size and mountainous background. Those same winds pick up tons of fine dirt that manages to find its way into local homes. Sometimes visibility is limited by these dust storms. But enough of the background.
Have folks found a good off grid filtration system? By off grid - meaning that it economically helps out in spite of somewhat limited hours.
