An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level

Air Quality

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 boost your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, destroying bad smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.

Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they enlist 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 person who suffers from allergies 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 results of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously draining. A good 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 pros at Speedy Air Conditioning will help you find the right 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 house smelling not so fresh. Working to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The proper air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One warning when searching for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you choose doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone created by other sources in your home.
