An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you cozy 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other pollutants, destroying unpleasant 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 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. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t put up 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 severely draining. 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 Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning will help you find the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy 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 house smelling not so fresh. Working 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 caveat when looking for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you pick doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone generated by other sources in your home. There are a number of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our experts to help you choose one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
