You trust 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 improve that level of comfort? You can with an air purifier—and a whole-home model can be easily added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can improve your home comfort by reducing dust and other pollutants, destroying unpleasant smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
A lot of 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 may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out 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 decent 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 Pliescott HVAC Services LLC will help you find the right air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by neutralizing 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 mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The correct air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caution when looking for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you go with doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone created by other sources in your home.
