An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you toasty 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 added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other contaminants, killing unpleasant smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they enlist 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home should 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 low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely devastating. A good air purifier can also kill many germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. The experts at Breeze Air and Heat will help you pick the right 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 result in a lot of different odors. Trying to cover 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 caution when looking for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you choose doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone created by other sources in your home. There are a lot of air purifiers out there. Look to our pros to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
