I'm a new home owner who wants to keep my house as free of dust, allergens and cat smells as possible. What kind of air purification system should I get?

What's the difference between maintaining the vents in the house vs. having a "whole house" air purification system installed?
I'm reading about UV light systems, Lennox purification systems, HEPA filters, etc. I see I can spend between $100 and $1000 for a single room/800 sq. ft. on Amazon or I can have a professionally installed system to cover the whole house for over $1000 (my house is approx. 1800 sq. ft.). Should I call an HVAC company, or is that overkill right now and I should be buying something at Home Depot or Amazon? What would be a good first step? It's really overwhelming trying to choose between so many types, brands, etc. I'd love if visitors to my house couldn't smell the cats very much at all!
