An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you warm 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 added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, destroying bad smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they enlist the help of an air purifier. Search 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 should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term results of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very draining. A decent 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 Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning will help you choose the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy 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. Working to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The proper air purifier can reduce 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. Make sure the model you go with 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 created by other sources in your home. There are a number of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our pros to help you pick one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
