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 comfy. 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 getting rid of dust and other pollutants, getting rid of foul smells and by stopping germs and bacteria in your home’s air. A lot of people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get the help of an air purifier. Look 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. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t put up 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 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. Our team at James Heating & A/C, Inc will help you find 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 result in a lot of different odors. Working to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The proper air purifier can lessen 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. Be certain the model you go with doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone made by other sources in your home. There are a variety of air purifiers out there. Look to our team to help you pick one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
