Is the air quality in your Davidsonville, Maryland, home not up to par? Consider adding an air purification system to improve it. Poor indoor air quality can have a negative impact on your family’s health, especially for those who suffer from asthma, allergies or have any respiratory issues. Let’s look at ways that adding an air purification system to your home can help improve your indoor air quality.
Kill Harmful Pathogens
Adding a whole-house air filtration system to your existing HVAC unit improves air quality by trapping and killing nasty pathogens. The advanced technology used in this process traps up to 95 percent of microbes as small as .30 microns in size. Once the particles are trapped, an electrical charge goes through the system, killing or inactivating the pathogens that could harm your respiratory system. As a result, your home’s air will feel much cleaner and healthier.
Trap Contaminated Air
One of the first lines of defense in keeping your indoor air quality healthy is to have high-performance air filters. The HVAC industry uses the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) system to rate the efficiency of an air filter’s ability to trap dirty or contaminated air. The higher the number, the more efficient the filter.
Our deep-pleated air filters come with a MERV rating of 10 and above. They remove nearly 65 percent of airborne particles that have accumulated in the ductwork of your HVAC system.
Destroy Damaging Microorganisms
The inside of your air conditioning coils has a substantial amount of moisture. This environment is the perfect place for harmful bacteria to grow. Once airborne, these germs can enter into your home and possibly infect the occupants.
We carry a special high-performance Ultraviolet Germicidal UV Light that kills the bacteria before they can become airborne. Having clean coils and air filters and an HVAC system that’s free from unhealthy germs can greatly improve your home’s indoor air quality.
