You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. 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 merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other contaminants, getting rid of foul smells and by combating 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. 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely 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 Central Heating & Plumbing will help you find the best 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 home with varying odors. Working to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when searching for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you choose doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone created by other sources in your home.
