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 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 improve your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, destroying bad smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Quite a few 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 might 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 effects of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely debilitating. 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. Our team at Danco Heating & Cooling will help you choose the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable 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. Trying to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The proper air purifier can decrease 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. Make sure 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 lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home. There are a variety of air purifiers out there. 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.
