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 comfortable. It keeps you cozy 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 merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other contaminants, getting rid of foul smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Quite a few 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). Anyone 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 deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term impacts of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very devastating. 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 Bell Air Conditioning Inc. will help you pick the right 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 home with varying odors. Trying to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when looking for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you pick 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 decreases ozone made by other sources in your home. There are a number of air purifiers out there. Look to our experts to help you choose one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
