You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. It keeps you toasty 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can improve your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, getting rid of unpleasant smells and by stopping germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
A lot of people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they have 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. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t put up with 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. The experts at Total Comfort will help you choose the right air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable 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 hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The proper air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you choose 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 generated by other sources in your home.
