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 comfortable. It keeps you warm 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 improve your home comfort by reducing dust and other irritants, getting rid of bad 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 get 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 may 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 impacts 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 many germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our team at Hammack Service Company will help you pick the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy is by neutralizing 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 cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The proper air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you go with 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 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.
