An Air Purifier Can Take Your Homes Comfort to the Next Level

June 23, 2017

You trust your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you toasty all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can improve 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 enhance your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, destroying foul smells and by combating 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. 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 allergy sufferers in your home may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t suffer from allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term results of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely draining. 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 pros at Connolly Electric & Mechanical will help you find the best 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. Trying to mask 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. Make sure the model you pick 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 reduces ozone created by other sources in your home.

There are a variety of air purifiers out there. Look to our experts to help you choose one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs. Give us a call at 928-244-8840. We’re here to help you maximize your home comfort!
