You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. 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 merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, killing unpleasant smells and by combating 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). Any person who suffers from allergies in your home should 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 low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously devastating. A good 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 pros at Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating will help you find the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable is by eliminating household odors. Everyone likes a fresh-smelling home. Odors from pets, cooking, and even a child’s sports gear can leave your house smelling not so fresh. Trying to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when looking for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you choose doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home.
