Indoor air quality is a grave concern for many Americans. Over 50 million suffer from some form of nasal allergy caused by triggers like dust, animal dander, mold, pollen and chemical aerosols. It’s important to consider how HVAC systems can be used to manage this concern.
The indoor air that we breathe will at some point have circulated through our heating and cooling systems. This circulation is what brings occupants in contact will all manners of airborne allergens. From dust to chemical aerosol particles, people are exposed to a variety of allergens that can adversely affect their health.
To help limit the level of allergens that circulate, HVAC systems must be equipped with suitable filters that can ably capture and destroy allergens, thereby safeguarding those breathing in the air. With cleaner air, there is also a much lower risk of biological allergens being harbored in the ventilation system and ending up circulating around the home. That can also help lower transmission of colds and the flu.
At Eagle Heating and Air Conditioning, we recommend the use of Premier One airflow products for enhanced air filtration. Superior to most commercially sold filters, these high-performance products are better able to capture dust mite debris and other allergens. These filters can be integrated into any make and model of HVAC equipment.
Germicidal UVC is deadly to germs, mold and virus particles. These lamps deactivate biological dangers, ensuring better indoor air quality. These fixtures are often used in hospitals and food processing plants. Now, they can now be made a part of your home HVAC system, helping to not only ensure healthier air to breathe, but also improve system efficiency and prolong equipment life. They are an ideal solution for homes where occupants may be experiencing problems with exposure to chemical allergens from commercial cleaning products. By disinfecting the air, there is a reduced need to use disinfectants when cleaning.
UV air purifiers are another recommended solution for dealing with odor and germs. For those that have pets, this can be a helpful installation that eliminates unpleasant animal smells. Like the germicidal UVC, the air purifier is installed in your ductwork, where it can act on the air as it passes through the HVAC system. No matter the type of HVAC system you use, it is easy to enhance its performance when you have access to the right air purifying fixtures and professionals that can correctly install them.
