Maintaining quality air within your home is just as important as the temperature inside your home when it comes to your overall comfort. Not all air is created equal, and at Carolina Comfort Air, we are dedicated to not only providing top-notch HVAC systems, but also high-end HVAC system enhancements for improving your indoor air quality.
HVAC system enhancements are small additions to your HVAC system that improve the overall functionality of your HVAC system greatly. Typically, these enhancements help by cutting down on air pollutants that could potentially cause long term health hazards. Let’s take a moment to discuss two HVAC enhancements that you can buy to drastically improve the indoor air quality within your home.
Air Scrubber Plus is an HVAC enhancement that does exactly what it sounds like it would do – it ‘scrubs’ the air. At any given moment, the air you breathe can be packed with microscopic particulates that can cause a number of health problems. The worst part is you might not even know that it’s happening! By installing the Air Scrubber Plus, you can help purify the air that is being circulated throughout your home by your HVAC system each and every day. Here are just a few ways that an air scrubber can directly benefit you and improve your indoor air quality.
Cleans and Purifies Indoor Air
Surprisingly, the air inside your home can be anywhere from 2-5x more polluted than the air outside. This is primarily due to poor circulation, pet dander, mold, dust, and other air pollutants that get trapped inside. This can cause unsavory odors and unhealthy results by breathing them in too often. Air Scrubber Plus is proven to filter out up to 99.99% of pollutants and harmful odors from the air.
Reduces Symptoms Related to Allergies or Asthma
Once pollen or pet dander enters the air in your home, it can become trapped with no way to escape. This causes the pollutants to continue to circulate throughout the house, and trigger allergic or asthmatic symptoms and reactions. An Air Scrubber Plus can help reduce the severe symptoms related to allergies and asthma.
Keeps Your Home Clean
Dust and particulates can build up on countertops and furniture rapidly. How often do you find yourself dusting per week? Dust build-up can have a negative impact on your health and can even clog your HVAC filters, reducing the overall efficiency and lifespan. Air scrubbers help reduce surface contaminants and particulate buildup in the air, and as a result, help keep the surfaces of your home cleaner!
Installing UV lighting into your HVAC system can be a huge enhancement to the overall quality of your air, as they have proven to kill bacteria within your home. UV lights are quickly becoming the most popular HVAC enhancement on the market- and for good reason!
For over 100 years, scientists have regarded UV lighting as an excellent tool to bill airborne and surface bacteria. Untold numbers of germs, harmful bacteria, and dangerous viruses can be transported through circulating air — UV lighting can help eliminate those threats in your home!
Keeps Mold & Organic Matter Controlled
By killing off microorganisms and bacteria, UV lighting can help reduce the buildup of old and other volatile organic matter in your home or HVAC unit. These volatile organic compounds can become hazardous to your health and the structural integrity of your home, causing tens of thousands of dollars in damages. UV lighting can help eliminate the ability for these issues to grow and arise over time.
Many unpleasant odors can develop through organic materials and microorganisms taking hold in your air and permeating your furniture, carpets, and walls. UV lighting eliminates the odors and helps keep your home and furniture smelling more fresh and clean. Homeowners with UV light HVAC enhancements report an overall feeling of cleanliness in their air and homes day in and day out.
It’s easy to ignore indoor air quality, simply because it goes unseen. The quality of the air we subject ourselves and our families to plays a huge role in our overall health and wellbeing. It is absolutely critical that homeowners take advantage of HVAC enhancement systems.
By installing the Air Scrubber Plus and/or UV light in your HVAC system, you too can be on your way towards breathing safer and cleaner air. Contact us about our ongoing indoor air quality specials and upgrades!
