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

June 23, 2017

You 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 improve 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 improve your home comfort by reducing dust and other pollutants, killing unpleasant smells and by combating 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. 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 might notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out 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 great 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 Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning will help you find 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. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The proper air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caveat when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you choose doesn’t produce 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 created by other sources in your home.
