You trust your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. 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 merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can improve your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, destroying foul smells and by stopping 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. 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 might notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal with 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 seriously debilitating. A decent 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. Our team at Farnell Mechanical, Inc. will help you choose the best air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable is by neutralizing household odors. Everyone likes a fresh-smelling home. Odors from pets, cooking, and even a child’s sports gear can leave your home with varying odors. Attempting to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The right air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caveat when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you pick doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home.
