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 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 merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, killing unpleasant 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). Any allergy sufferers in your home might 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 impacts of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely draining. 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. The experts at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning will help you choose the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable 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 house smelling not so fresh. Trying to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The correct air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you go with doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone made by other sources in your home.
