You 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 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 improve your home comfort by removing dust and other contaminants, getting rid of unpleasant smells and by stopping germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
Quite a few people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get the help of an air purifier. Search 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 might notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously devastating. A great 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 team at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc will help you choose the ideal 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. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The proper air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when searching for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you go with doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone created by other sources in your home.
