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

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 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 pollutants, destroying unpleasant 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 have 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 person who suffers from allergies in your home might notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal 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 devastating. A decent 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 Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. will help you pick 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 leave your home with varying odors. Trying to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The proper air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caveat when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you pick doesn’t create 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 generated by other sources in your home.
