You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. 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 boost your home comfort by removing 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 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 person who suffers from allergies in your home should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing 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 severely draining. A good 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 pros at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating will help you choose the right 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. Working to hide 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 caution when looking for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you choose doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone made by other sources in your home.
