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 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 improve your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other contaminants, killing foul smells and by stopping germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Quite a few 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out 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 seriously devastating. 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. The experts at Paso Robles Heating and Air 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 getting rid of 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. Working to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can lessen 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. Be 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. There are a variety of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our team to help you pick one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
