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 cozy 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 enhance your home comfort by reducing dust and other pollutants, getting rid of unpleasant 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. 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 should 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 impacts of poor indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously draining. A good 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 pros at Kapaun & Brown Inc. will help you find the ideal air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfy is by neutralizing 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. Working to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The right air purifier can reduce household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caution when doing research for an air purifier: some models actually create 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 lessens ozone created by other sources in your home.

There are a number of air purifiers out there. Look to our pros 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 641-753-3563. We’re here to help you maximize your home comfort!
