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

June 23, 2017

You trust 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 incorporated into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other pollutants, destroying unpleasant 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. 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 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 seriously devastating. 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. The experts at Hopper Heating and Air will help you find the best air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by eliminating household odors. Everyone likes a fresh-smelling home. Odors from pets, cooking, and even a child’s sports gear can leave your home with varying odors. Trying to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually make your air quality worse. The proper air purifier can decrease household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caveat 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 produce 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.

There are a number of air purifiers on the market. Look to our experts to help you pick one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs. Give us a call at 704-233-7363. We’re here to help you maximize your home comfort!
