You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. It keeps you cozy 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 enhance your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, destroying unpleasant smells and by battling 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 person who suffers from allergies in your home should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t suffer from 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 very 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 Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning will help you find the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable is by neutralizing 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. Attempting to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caveat when searching for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you go with 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 created by other sources in your home.
