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 heighten 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 getting rid of dust and other contaminants, getting rid of foul smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.

Many people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home should notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t suffer from 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 very draining. 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. Our team at Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling will help you choose the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy is by eliminating 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. Attempting to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The right air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One warning when looking for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you go with 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 created by other sources in your home.

There are a variety of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our team 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 804-302-6657. We’re here to help you maximize your home comfort!
