Energy efficiency has become the mantra of homeowners in recent years. In an attempt to be as energy-efficient as possible, more and more homes are built with construction methods such as better insulation, weather-stripping, air-tight windows, and improved door systems. These techniques do help minimize a home’s energy usage but the downside is compromised indoor air quality.

Apparently, the more energy-efficient a home is, the riskier it becomes in terms of the quality of the air inside. Because of the lack of proper ventilation, such homes harbor airborne contaminants that cause all kinds of respiratory illnesses.

With the spread of the COVID-19 disease throughout the world, particularly in the United States, homeowners should strive to improve their indoor air quality to minimize the chances of not only contracting coronavirus, but also other diseases that weaken the respiratory system.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your trusted HVAC company in Crystal MN that offers total home comfort solutions, including home air purification systems. In partnership with Lennox Industries, we provide efficient ways to clean the air that circulates throughout your home.

Overview

It is common knowledge that the air outside of our homes is polluted by smoke coming out of factories, vehicles, and other smoke-emitting sources. Having said that, not everyone is aware that indoor air can be far more dangerous than outdoor air. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the air inside the house can be up to 2 to 5 times more polluted than that of the air outside. What’s more alarming is that as Americans aspire to make their homes more energy-efficient, their children, elderly, and family members with preexisting respiratory conditions are the ones who suffer the most from poor indoor air day after day.

For this reason, you should consider equipping your home with a complete air purification system from Lennox.

How Air Purifiers Work

Air purifiers use fine strainers that filter particles from circulating air. As air flows into the air purifier, the finer the sieve used, the smaller the particles it traps. The more times the air passes through the high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, the cleaner the air becomes. 

Air Purification Products From Lennox

There are a variety of air purification products available on the market today. Below are three of the best systems you might want to consider.

Lennox Healthy Climate PureAir

PureAir™ is an air purification system that cleans the air in every room in the home. Many air cleaning systems filter out particles. Some fight germs, and some attack odors. But only PureAir™ Air Purification System fights all three types of indoor air pollutants: airborne particles, germs and bacteria, chemical odors, and vapors.

It eliminates 99.9% of all particles like pollen, dust and pet dander. The system removes 90% of viruses such as MERS A, flu, and cold. It removes and destroys approximately 50% of household odors and chemical vapors in a 24-hour period.

It’s a great solution for improving the quality of the air in your home as it provides highly effective air filtration without using much electricity.

It also helps the environment by reducing the ozone generated by other sources in your home through its carbon filtration.

Lennox HEPA Filtration System

A Healthy Climate® HEPA system is capable of removing nearly all allergy-aggravating contaminants, including some of the smallest particles and bacteria. It is the same HEPA technology used in medical and laboratory facilities.

The sealed design of the HEPA system prevents particles from bypassing the filter and recirculating in your home while an insulated cabinet prevents condensation.

Lennox Carbon Clean 16 Media Air Cleaner

The Carbon Clean 16® combines industry-leading Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) 16 filtration with activated carbon-coated fibers that eliminate allergy-aggravating particles from your indoor air. It provides powerful filtration without restricting the airflow of your comfort system.

The Carbon Clean 16 is potent against common household allergens that can worsen asthma and respiratory illnesses. It also attacks germs like viruses, bacteria, and mold. It offers a number of benefits including:

  • Whole-home filtration with no additional power source
  • Industry-exclusive, MERV 16 Precision Pleat media filter – the highest MERV rating possible
  • Hospital inpatient care/general surgery level filtration
  • Removes over 95% of particles ranging in size down to 0.3 micron
  • Removes over 90 percent of bioaerosols like bacteria, viruses, and microorganisms down to .01 micron
