An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level

Air Quality

You 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 heighten 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 removing dust and other pollutants, getting rid of unpleasant 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. Search 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 should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term results of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely draining. A great 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 Kelley Mechanical 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 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 mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you go with doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home.
