You count on your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. It keeps you warm 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 added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other pollutants, killing bad smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they enlist 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 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 suffer from 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 severely devastating. 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 Luikart Heating & Cooling will help you find the best 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 home with varying odors. Trying to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The proper air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain 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 decreases ozone created by other sources in your home.
