An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level

Air Quality

You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. 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 merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can improve your home comfort by reducing dust and other irritants, destroying foul 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 have 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 may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t put up with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely draining. 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 Central Heating & Plumbing will help you choose 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. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The proper air purifier can decrease 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. Be sure the model you choose doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home.

There are a variety of air purifiers out there. Look to our pros to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs. Give us a call at 724-401-1843. We’re here to help you maximize your home comfort!
