You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. It keeps you toasty 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by removing dust and other irritants, killing foul smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
Many 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. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t put up with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term impacts of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very debilitating. A good air purifier can also kill many germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our pros at Cool Air Solutions will help you choose the right air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by eliminating 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. Working to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The correct air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caveat when searching for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you pick doesn’t produce 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 variety of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our experts to help you pick one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs. Give us a call at 951-299-9853. We’re here to help you maximize your home comfort!
