Maintaining high-quality indoor air is as important as heating and cooling. Although your furnace and air conditioner can take care of comfort, other products are needed for clean air. Most Gurnee, IL, homes are sealed tight and leak-proofed. That reduces energy loss but can lead to indoor air pollution. That’s where UV lights, air purifiers, ventilators and air filtration systems can help. Here’s a quick description of how these products can keep your home healthy as well as comfortable:
- UV Lights: Fungi like mold and mildew and microbes like bacteria and viruses can collect in your ductwork and on the indoor coil and condensate drain of your air conditioner. Once settled in, these organisms can pollute indoor air and interfere with efficient HVAC operation and airflow. UV lights kill these toxins and keep them out of your HVAC.
- Heat Recovery Ventilators: These high-tech systems exchange stale indoor air for fresh outdoor air while minimizing heat loss. By using the heat energy of outgoing stuffy air to warm fresh incoming air, they give you clean air while maintaining furnace efficiency. Heat recovery ventilators work best in climates with cold winters and low summer humidity.
- Air Purifiers: Carrier’s patented and award-wining Infinity air cleaner traps and zaps 95 percent of airborne contaminants with innovative Capture and Kill™ technology that neutralizes microbes like mold, viruses and bacteria as well as dust mites, dander, smoke, pollen and other common household contaminants.
- Air Filtration Systems: A cabinet air filtration system fitted with a high-efficiency deep-pleated MERV 10 filter can trap 65 percent of airborne contaminants while maintaining indoor air circulation.
