You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other pollutants, getting rid of foul smells and by stopping germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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 person who suffers from allergies in your home may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants 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 devastating. A great 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 Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc will help you choose the best 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 leave your home with varying odors. Working to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The right air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caveat when looking for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you choose doesn’t give off 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.
