You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. 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 added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can improve your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other contaminants, destroying foul smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
Quite a few people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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 may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t put up with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term results of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously debilitating. 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. Our pros at Gilray Heating and Cooling will help you choose the best air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy is by neutralizing 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. Attempting to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The right air purifier can lessen 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. Make sure the model you choose doesn’t give off 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 generated by other sources in your home.
There are a lot of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our experts to help you pick one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs. Give us a call at 715-301-0727. We’re here to help you boost your home comfort!
