An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. It keeps you warm 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 added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other pollutants, getting rid of bad smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. A lot of 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). 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 results of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely 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 Redhawk 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 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. Attempting to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you choose doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home.
