You trust your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. It keeps you cozy 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 boost your home comfort by removing dust and other contaminants, 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 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out 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 severely debilitating. A good 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 Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc will help you choose the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable 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. Trying to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you pick doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually reduces ozone made by other sources in your home.
There are a number 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 877-389-2465. We’re here to help you boost your home comfort!
