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

June 23, 2017

You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfy. It keeps you toasty 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 added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can enhance your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other irritants, destroying bad 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 enlist 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 allergy sufferers in your home might notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Filtering out these pollutants is important even if you don’t deal with 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 debilitating. A good 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 team at HCE Systems Inc will help you choose the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable is by neutralizing 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 pollute your indoor air more. The right air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caveat when searching for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be 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 generated by other sources in your home.

There are a variety of air purifiers on the market. Look to our experts to help you choose one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs. Give us a call at 276-302-0076. We’re here to help you increase your home comfort!
