You 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 merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by removing dust and other contaminants, killing foul smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they have 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 allergy sufferers 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 effects of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously devastating. A decent 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 Point Heating & Cooling will help you choose the right 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 leave your house smelling not so fresh. Working to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The proper air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caveat when searching for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain 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 reduces ozone created by other sources in your home.
