You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. 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 added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can improve your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, killing bad 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. 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. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t suffer from allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term impacts of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely 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 American HVAC Inc will help you find the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable 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 result in a lot of different odors. Attempting to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right air purifier can lessen 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. Be 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 create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone created by other sources in your home.
