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 cozy all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can boost 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 boost your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, getting rid of bad smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Quite a few people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they get 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home might notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing 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 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. Our team at KDM Service Corporation will help you choose the right 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 house smelling not so fresh. Attempting to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The correct air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when searching for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Be sure the model you pick 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 made by other sources in your home. There are a variety 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.
