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 comfy. It keeps you cozy 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 reducing dust and other pollutants, destroying bad smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they enlist 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home might notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t suffer from allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously draining. 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. The experts at Patterson & Stirling Inc will help you pick the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy 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 home with varying odors. Trying to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when searching for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you go with 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 decreases ozone made by other sources in your home. There are a lot of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our experts to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs.
