As I have mentioned before, the air filter in your home really isn’t designed to provide you with clean breathing air. It is designed more for the protection of your HVAC system, but we do have equipment that can be installed in your home to provide you with cleaner air to breathe. They are called UV Air Cleaners and there are three different options that each has their own benefits.
Your Breathe-Better Options Are…
HEPA Air Cleaner – this system helps to relieve allergy and asthma symptoms by removing and destroying allergens and atmospheric dust by trapping the particles in a filter and allowing clean air to return to the room. This is a great option for almost everyone since the unit can be installed in several different ways such as a free-standing unit, duct mounted or collar-mounted units. It is 99.97% efficient at removing particles and also removes chemical and biological contaminants as well as odors throughout your home. Every home has an “odor” so there is no downside in having that removed!
Bioguard Powered Filter – this is an electronic air cleaner that provides a polarized charge to capture and remove airborne particles. This system removes more than 95% of allergy producing particles and is designed to deliver fresh, clean air throughout your entire home without releasing any emissions of ozone so it is safe for the environment as well. Another bonus of this unit is that there is absolutely no cleaning required and it is compatible with any HVAC system.
Biocide Chamber – the name of this cleaner may sound a little scary, but it is just a UV lamp installed above and below the air conditioning coil. This is the only product that seeks out bacteria, mold, allergens and germs throughout your home and gets rid of them. This particular system is especially cost effective in the long run because it lowers system corrosion and the chance of having repairs on your air conditioning unit due to Freon leaks. It actually keeps your coils sanitized and germ free right along with the air you are breathing.
If cleaner air is something you are in the market for, or if it is a necessity for health purposes, give Carmine’s a call today at 203-791-8089. The EPA estimates that the air inside your home is 7 to 10 times more contaminated than the air we breathe outside so having cleaner indoor air to breathe would be money well spent.
