You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. It keeps you toasty 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 boost your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, killing foul 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 have 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t suffer from 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 great air purifier can also kill many germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our team at Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services will help you find the best air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by eliminating household odors. Everyone likes a fresh-smelling home. Odors from pets, cooking, and even a child’s sports gear can leave your house smelling not so fresh. Trying to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The proper air purifier can reduce 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. Make sure the model you go with doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone made by other sources in your home.
