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 warm 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 merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, destroying foul smells and by stopping 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). Any person 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 suffer from allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term results of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very debilitating. A decent 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 team at Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing will help you find the right air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable 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 result in a lot of different odors. Working to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The proper air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caution when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you choose 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 lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home. There are a number of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our pros to help you pick one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
