An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. It keeps you toasty all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can boost 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 improve your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, 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 enlist 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 should 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 bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously debilitating. 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 team at Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. will help you pick the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy 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. Attempting to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create 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 create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone created by other sources in your home. There are a lot of air purifiers on the market. Look to our experts to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
