Are you congested?
Do you have headaches?
Shortness of breath?
These are just some of the many symptoms that can be caused by indoor air pollutants.
Sources of indoor air pollutants
Pollen and mold spores enter your house through open doors and windows, while dander falls from pets. Such allergens settle on your floors and furniture. These pollutants can contaminate the air inside your home. Indeed, the air inside your home can be as much as five times more polluted than outdoor air! And that is a real problem. Such pollutants spread disease and trigger allergic and asthmatic reactions.
HVAC Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Thankfully, there are solutions. Four solutions, in fact!
An air filtration system helps to clear to the air of harmful and unwanted pollutants. They’re easy to maintain. Simply remove and replace the disposable filter twice a year to make certain that the air filtration system is operating just as effectively as it should.
- UV Lights
Fungal contamination of air-handling units is a well documented problem in buildings with central heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning. UV lamps protect the coil, killing off mold and bacteria before they can be pushed through your home’s ductwork into the air you breathe. UV Lights destroy airborne bioaerosols – and they do so without any ozone emissions. Eliminating these contaminants does more than help improve your air quality, it increases your system performance as well.
An air exchanger will keep your home supplied with a steady flow of fresh outdoor air. If your house is not receiving fresh air, then carbon dioxide, odors, dust, airborne pollutants and excess humidity are kept indoors. This can cause or aggravate allergic reactions and other health problems.
- Air Cleaners / Air Purifiers
Air Cleaners, also known as Air Purifiers, are an effective way of defending yourself against indoor air pollution. Carrier’s state-of-the-art technology kills captured viruses, bacteria, and mold and can prevent further growth of bacteria and fungi on the filter. An Air Purifier can help provide you and your family with relief from allergies.
Homeowners don’t always realize that a poorly maintained or contaminated system may actually increase the risk of asthma and other allergic respiratory symptoms. Filters need to be changed regularly.
REPLACE UV BULBS:
If the UV Bulb burns out the UV Light won’t work. To ensure continued operation, replace the bulb once a year.
