Families now have access to a variety of amazing new products that will allow them to remove airborne contaminants from their home and avoid many of the most common respiratory issues such as asthma and seasonal allergies. Read ahead for a closer look at exactly how allergens can become trapped in your home and what simple air conditioning accessories can do to get rid of them.
Studies carried out by the Environmental Protection Agency have revealed that the average person is exposed to more chemicals and allergens in their home than anywhere else. One of the reasons for this is the fact that modern homes are extremely well-insulated, and it is easy for outdoor chemicals to become trapped inside. In humid climates, mold should be another major concern for homeowners who might be breathing in spores without even realizing it. These are just a few of the reasons that everyone should think about their home’s air quality before first turning on the air conditioner each spring.
UV germicidal lights have become incredibly popular in recent years as new studies continue to show us just how effective this technology can be. Even modern HVAC systems tend to create an environment that is perfect for mold growth around the coil and drain pan. Seasonal maintenance can limit mold growth, but a UV light will kill off germs throughout the year. These intense UV lights destroy organic material at its source, and this means that it will never become airborne.
Many homes in Florida are sealed so tight that the air becomes humid and stale. Not only are these conditions uncomfortable, but they are also the perfect environment for mold and mildew. A heat recovery ventilator works alongside an HVAC system to expel the stale air while bringing in fresh outdoor air. Before the outdoor air comes into your home, it will be filtered in multiple locations to remove many different types of outdoor contaminants.
