An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. It keeps you warm all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can boost 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. 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. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal 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 severely devastating. A good 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. The experts at Watts Electric & A/C Inc will help you choose the best 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 mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you pick doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t produce ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone generated by other sources in your home. There are a number of air purifiers out there. Look to our pros to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
