You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you toasty 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 removing dust and other irritants, getting rid of foul smells and by battling 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. 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies 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 impacts of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very draining. 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 Davis Heating & Air Conditioning 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. Working to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The correct air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when searching for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you choose doesn’t produce 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.
