Maintaining Good Indoor Air Quality
We all want to improve our Home’s Indoor Air-Quality. Cleaner air reduces coughing, sneezing, & allergy attacks. Live bacteria, viruses, and mold particles in the air all contribute to breathing issues, as well as colds and sinus problems.
Even Allergy-Rated filters can’t stop the smaller bacteria, mold spores and viruses (the filter’s pores are too large). The best way to nearly eliminate these is to add a UV (ultraviolet) Light Purification System mounted in your furnace or ductwork.
UV lights produce harmless hydroxyl ions (not ozone) that destroy most bacteria, mold spores, and viruses. Another huge benefit of UV Lights is their ability to remove odor. This is especially beneficial for smokers and pet owners.
NOTE: While UV light systems are very good at killing the micro-organisms that contribute to Indoor Air-Quality problems, UV Lights do not remove particles from the air. For particles, use a Whole-House Air Cleaner or HEPA filter.
Al’s Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning sells Installed UV Lights. We also sell installed Whole-House Electronic Air Cleaners and HEPA Filters. Call us today to discuss your Indoor Air-Quality concerns and hear about how we can best correct them.
