An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, killing foul 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 enlist 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). Any allergy sufferers in your home may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out 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 severely devastating. A decent air purifier can also kill a lot of germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our team at Tri County Air Care LLC will help you find the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable is by eliminating 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 correct air purifier can reduce 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 pick doesn’t give off 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. There are a variety of air purifiers out there. Look to our team to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
