You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you warm 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 contaminants, destroying bad smells and by combating 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. 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. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t suffer from 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 seriously draining. A decent 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 team at WM J Kraus & Son 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 neutralizing 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. Working to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right air purifier can reduce 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 certain the model you pick doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone generated by other sources in your home.
