You trust your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. It keeps you warm 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, getting rid of 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 enlist 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 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 put up with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term results of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously draining. 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. The experts at Air Temperature Control will help you choose the right air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy 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. Working to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caveat when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create 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 give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone created by other sources in your home.
