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 feel nice. It keeps you toasty 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 improve your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, destroying 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 have 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 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 effects of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously debilitating. A decent 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 Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc will help you choose the best 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 home with varying odors. Attempting to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The proper air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you choose doesn’t create 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. There are a number of air purifiers out there. 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.
