An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You rely 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 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 boost your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, killing 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 enlist 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously debilitating. A good 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. The experts at Cool Air Solutions 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. Trying to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can reduce 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 certain 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 generated by other sources in your home. There are a variety of air purifiers out there. Look to our pros to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
