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 comfortable. It keeps you warm 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 improve your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, destroying unpleasant smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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 may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t suffer from 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 seriously devastating. A great 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 Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC will help you choose the ideal 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 leave your house smelling not so fresh. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The proper 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. Make 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 made by other sources in your home. There are a variety of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our team to help you choose one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
