An Air Purifier Can Take Your Homes Comfort to the Next Level

You trust your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. 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 enhance your home comfort by removing dust and other contaminants, killing 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. Look 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. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t put up with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very debilitating. 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 Air Temperature Control will help you pick the best air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy is by neutralizing 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. Working to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One warning when searching for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Make 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 made by other sources in your home.

There are a variety of air purifiers out there. 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. Give us a call at 478-202-3170. We’re here to help you increase your home comfort!
