An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You count 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 heighten 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 boost your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, destroying unpleasant smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air. A lot of people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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). Anyone 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 impacts of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely devastating. A good air purifier can also kill a great deal of germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our pros at Airtronic Heating & Cooling will help you pick the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable is by eliminating household odors. Everyone likes a fresh-smelling home. Odors from pets, cooking, and even a child’s sports gear can result in a lot of different odors. Working to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The correct air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you pick doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home. There are a lot of air purifiers out there. Look to our pros to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
