An Air Purifier Can Take Your Homes Comfort to the Next Level

June 23, 2017

You trust 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 improve 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 reducing dust and other pollutants, destroying unpleasant smells and by stopping germs and bacteria in your home’s air.

Quite a few people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get the help of an air purifier. Look 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 should 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 results of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very debilitating. A good 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. Our pros at B & G HVAC will help you find the best air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy 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 house smelling not so fresh. Working to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caveat when looking for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you go with doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone made by other sources in your home.
