The Advantages of an Indoor Air Quality System
Indoor air quality systems do what the disposable air filters in HVAC systems don’t. Instead of capturing only about 4% of the particles within your home, air cleaners capture over 99% of airborne particles sized at 0.3 microns.
Ventilators introduce fresh air into your home and reduce pollutants caused by pets, smoking, chemically enhanced cleaners, and cooking. Ultraviolet lights kill bacteria and mold that could otherwise grow on your indoor coil and circulate throughout your home.
Indoor Air Quality Systems Improve Quality of Life
Evidence is clear that installing an indoor air quality system can improve the quality of life that you and your family enjoy.
The following are the types of health issues that can be avoided by installing an indoor air quality system in your home:
