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 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 boost your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, getting rid of foul smells and by combating 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. 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 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 bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously draining. 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 Schagrin Gas Company will help you pick the right 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 leave your home with varying odors. Attempting to cover 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 looking for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you choose doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone created by other sources in your home. There are a variety of air purifiers out there. 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.
