An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you cozy all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can boost that level of comfort? You can with an air purifier—and a whole-home model can be easily merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, killing unpleasant smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Quite a few people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they have the help of an air purifier. Keep an eye out for one that filters out at least 95 percent of particles as small as .3 micron (a micron is one-thousandth of a millimeter). Any person who suffers from allergies in your home should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term results of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously draining. A great air purifier can also kill a lot of germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our team at Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC will help you choose the right air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable is by getting rid of household odors. Everyone likes a fresh-smelling home. Odors from pets, cooking, and even a child’s sports gear can leave your house smelling not so fresh. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The correct air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when looking for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you go with doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone generated by other sources in your home. There are a number of air purifiers out there. Look to our team to help you pick one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
