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

You rely on 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 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 improve your home comfort by getting rid of dust and other contaminants, getting rid of unpleasant smells and by combating 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). Anyone who suffers from allergies in your home should 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 impacts of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very devastating. A great air purifier can also kill many germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our team at Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning will help you choose the right air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable 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 leave your home with varying odors. Attempting to mask odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The proper air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caution 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 lessens ozone created by other sources in your home.

There are a lot 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 952-373-0377. We’re here to help you increase your home comfort!
