You rely on 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 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 enhance your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, killing foul 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 have 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 person who suffers from allergies 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 impacts of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very draining. A good 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 Lakeside Heating & Air 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 hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caution when doing research 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 produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone created by other sources in your home.
