An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level

Air Quality

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 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 pollutants, getting rid of 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. 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 allergy sufferers 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 effects of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely devastating. 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. The experts at Summit Air Conditioning Inc will help you choose the right air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by eliminating 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 hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caution when looking for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you choose doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone created by other sources in your home.
