An Air Purifier Can Take Your Homes Comfort to the Next Level

June 23, 2017

You 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 boost 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 enhance your home comfort by reducing dust and other pollutants, getting rid of foul smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air.

Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they have 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). 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 impacts of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very debilitating. A great 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 pros at Dearing's Service & Solutions will help you pick the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by eliminating 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 hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The correct air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caveat when searching for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you go with doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone created by other sources in your home.
