You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. 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 enhance your home comfort by removing dust and other irritants, killing foul smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
A lot of 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 deal with 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 devastating. A great 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. The experts at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc will help you choose 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 result in a lot of different odors. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The correct air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when looking for an air purifier: some models actually produce 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 produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone made by other sources in your home.
