Keep your home comfortable with an air purifier

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

You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. It keeps you cozy all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can improve 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 removing dust and other pollutants, killing bad smells and by battling 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. 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 may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very devastating. A decent 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 Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. will help you choose the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable 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 home with varying odors. Trying to mask 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 warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you go with doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone made by other sources in your home.
