You count on your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. 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 enhance your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other contaminants, destroying unpleasant smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.
A lot of people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home may 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 bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be severely devastating. A great 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 Jett's Heating & Air Inc. will help you pick the right air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by getting rid of 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 cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The correct air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One caution when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain 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 made by other sources in your home.
