You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. 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, killing unpleasant smells and by combating 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 might notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term results of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely 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. The experts at Marcos AC & Heating will help you pick the right air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by getting rid of 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 add to the problem. The proper 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. Be sure 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 reduces ozone generated by other sources in your home.
