You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. It keeps you cozy 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 boost your home comfort by removing dust and other irritants, killing unpleasant smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
Quite a few people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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). 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 put up with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously debilitating. 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. Our team at Mayeuxs AC & Heating 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 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 house smelling not so fresh. Attempting to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right 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 pick doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home.
