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 boost your home comfort by removing dust and other irritants, getting rid of bad smells and by battling 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. Keep an eye out 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 might 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 effects of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely devastating. A great 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 Falls Mechanical Services LLC will help you find 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 house smelling not so fresh. Working to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One warning when searching for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you pick doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone generated by other sources in your home.
