An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. It keeps you toasty 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by reducing dust and other pollutants, killing bad smells and by stopping germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they have 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). Any allergy sufferers in your home might 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 results of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very devastating. 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 Cool Power LLC 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 eliminating 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 mask 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 caution when searching for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you pick doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone made by other sources in your home. There are a lot of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our team to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
