Keep your home comfortable with an air purifier

An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level

You 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 contaminants, getting rid of unpleasant smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.

A lot of people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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). Any allergy sufferers in your home should 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 impacts of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely debilitating. A decent air purifier can also kill a great deal of germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our team at Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning will help you pick the best air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by eliminating household odors. Everyone likes a fresh-smelling home. Odors from pets, cooking, and even a child’s sports gear can result in a lot of different odors. Trying to cover 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 caution 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 give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone made by other sources in your home.
