What is Indoor Air Quality and how do you improve it?
Updated: May 2
Indoor air quality is an essential aspect of healthy living. Unfortunately, it is also easy to overlook, which can lead to a myriad of problems for your home, health and your HVAC system. Fortunately, there are many indoor air quality products (IAQ) available that can help improve air quality and promote healthy living. Below are a few products we offer to help keep you and your home clean and healthy.
UV lights are used to kill airborne microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. These lights are installed inside the air ducts or air handlers, where they emit shortwave ultraviolet light that breaks down the DNA of microorganisms, preventing them from reproducing. UV lights are especially useful for homes located in areas with high humidity, which can promote mold growth. These lights are also beneficial for people who suffer from allergies or respiratory problems, as they can help reduce the number of allergens in the air.
The Air Scrubber by Aerus is an IAQ product that uses ActivePure technology to remove contaminants from the air. This technology uses a combination of UV light, ozone, and hydroperoxides to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and mold spores. The Air Scrubber is installed in the HVAC system, where it works to purify the air as it passes through the system.
Aprilaire 213 Filters
Aprilaire 213 filters are high-efficiency air filters designed to remove pollutants and allergens from the air. These filters are MERV 13 rated, which means they can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns. They are also beneficial for homes located in areas with high levels of air pollution. The Aprilaire 213 Filters will also work to keep your Air Handler clean and running as efficiently as possible.
Dehumidifiers are IAQ products that work to reduce the humidity levels in the air. Your home will feel more comfortable with lower levels of humidity. High humidity levels can promote mold growth, which can lead to health problems such as allergies and respiratory infections. Dehumidifiers are especially beneficial for basements, where humidity levels tend to be higher than in other parts of the house.
In conclusion, indoor air quality products such as UV lights, Air Scrubbers, upgraded filters, and dehumidifiers are essential for healthy living. These products can help remove contaminants from the air, reduce humidity levels, and improve indoor air quality.
