They use fiber or mash filter to check the particles of dust and pet dander in your home. You need to clean or replace the filters at regular intervals. High efficient particulate air filters (HEPA) and other filters fall in this category.
Electrostatic air cleaners
These cleaners use electrically charged panel to clean the air. They do it by capturing particulates. Another type is ionizer, which works by electrically charging the particles of dust and other pollutants. When they are charged, they become heavier and drop on your carpet or furniture. This may be a mess because you have to clean it up.
Gas-phase air filters
These filters work with activated carbon. They are not found in home air purifier and they may not be able to remove all the gases like carbon monoxide. These air filters have a short life span.
