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 comfortable. It keeps you cozy all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can improve 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, destroying foul 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 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). Any allergy sufferers in your home should 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 impacts of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously 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 Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc will help you pick the right air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable 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 home with varying odors. Attempting to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The proper air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you pick doesn’t create 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 created by other sources in your home. There are a variety of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our pros to help you choose one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
