An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You trust 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 heighten 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 removing dust and other pollutants, getting rid of bad smells and by stopping 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. 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 person who suffers from allergies 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 results of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously draining. A good 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 Custom Air Systems Inc will help you find the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy 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. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when looking for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you pick doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone generated by other sources in your home. There are a lot of air purifiers out there. Look to our team to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
