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

You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you warm all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can heighten that level of comfort? You can with an air purifier—and a whole-home model can be easily merged into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can improve your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, getting rid of bad smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air.

A lot of people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they enlist the help of an air purifier. Search 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 allergy sufferers in your home should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Keeping these pollutants out is important even if you don’t deal with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term impacts of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously devastating. A great air purifier can also kill a great deal of germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our pros at Olde Towne Heating & Air will help you choose the right 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 leave your house smelling not so fresh. Working to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The proper air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One warning when searching for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you choose doesn’t produce ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually decreases ozone generated by other sources in your home.

There are a number of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our experts to help you find one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs. Give us a call at 843-485-0967. We’re here to help you maximize your home comfort!
