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

You count on your heating and cooling to make your home comfortable. It keeps you toasty all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can improve 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 reducing dust and other contaminants, destroying foul 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 enlist 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). 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 put up with allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term effects of bad indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously debilitating. A decent 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 Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning 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 getting rid of 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 hide 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 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 create 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 created 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 308-624-3485. We’re here to help you boost your home comfort!
