air+health offers two types of air purifying solutions: Whole-house air purifiers
Pure Air Solutions for Your Home and Family
Indoor air is literally filled with particles that can cause illness and aggravate asthma and other respiratory problems. Dust, pollen, animal dander, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mold can actually live in your HVAC system, where they can multiply and make your family sick and cause damage to your heating and cooling system. It’s important to keep your indoor air sanitized and pure.
Why Do You Need a UV Whole House Air Purifier?
We spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors and the air inside our homes is up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. If too little outdoor air enters your home or office, microorganisms can collect to levels that pose health and comfort problems. This problem can be especially serious in energy efficient homes built in the last twenty years. These homes may not allow enough air changes, keeping contaminated air in and fresh air out.
How Does UV Work?
Ultraviolet (UV) light purification has been proven effective in hospitals, schools, daycare centers, restaurants, hotels, and more. The germicidal effects of UV light cause photochemical damage to DNA and RNA within microorganisms for they do not reproduce. Ultraviolet radiation is effective in deactivating bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. Air+Health whole-house and portable air purifiers uses high intensity ultraviolet (UVC) lamps to reduce airborne germs and purify indoor air.
