An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You trust 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by reducing dust and other contaminants, killing bad smells and by battling 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. 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). Any person who suffers from allergies in your home might 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 bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously debilitating. A great 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 Woody's Sudden Service Inc will help you choose the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy 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 mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The correct air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caution when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you go with doesn’t give off 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.
