An Air Purifier Can Take Your Home’s Comfort to the Next Level 06/23/2017You count on 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 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 reducing dust and other pollutants, killing unpleasant smells and by battling germs and bacteria in your home’s air. Many 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). 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 results of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be seriously debilitating. 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. The experts at Ilten's Incorporated will help you find the best air purifier for your healthiest home. Another way an air purifier can make your home more habitable is by eliminating 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. Attempting to cover odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually add to the problem. The proper air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air. One caveat when looking for an air purifier: some models actually give off ozone, a known lung irritant. Be certain the model you go with doesn’t create ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t give off ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home. There are a variety of air purifiers on the market. 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.
