An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You trust 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 added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by reducing dust and other irritants, killing bad 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 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies 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 impacts 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 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 Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. will help you find the right 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 home with varying odors. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The correct air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caution when searching for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you go with 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 decreases ozone created by other sources in your home. There are a number of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our experts to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
