You rely on your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. 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 irritants, destroying bad smells and by stopping 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 put up with 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 debilitating. 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 Forster Heating will help you find the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.
Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable 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. Working to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The proper air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.
One warning when searching for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you go with 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 lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home.
