The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named indoor air pollution as one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health. They also report that indoor air can be up to one hundred times more polluted than outside air. These pollutants, combined with the Valley’s excessively dry air, make you more vulnerable to harmful viruses and respiratory ailments.
Since your home’s HVAC system helps control the environment (temperature, humidity, air flow, and air filtering) where you and your family spend so much of your time, having a clean and efficient system results in cleaner air within that home. Filtering pollutants keeps you and your family healthier, which also reduces healthcare costs. With an efficient filtration system in place and a well-maintained unit, your family are less likely to be exposed to the airborne pollutants that irritate asthma, allergies, and which even contribute to fatigue.
To contribute to the health of the home’s occupants and ensure efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system operation, it’s important to perform routine maintenance. Think of it like preventative medical care, but for your house. After all, you wouldn’t wait more than a year to have your teeth cleaned.
John’s Refrigeration offers an Advanced Oxidation Air Purifier for your house. The oxidants this unit creates circulate around your home, along with the treated air, and neutralize microbials at the source. This means your home will stay cleaner, smell fresher, and be healthier for you and your family. This whole-house air cleaner filters through our state-of-the-art system every time your system runs, reducing allergies and removing odor, bacteria, mold, and viruses.
John’s also recommends using electrostatic filters, which have filtration media made from unique polyurethane and polypropylene blends. Unlike fiberglass and pleated air filters, electrostatic air filters tend to hold onto particles so well that they will remain in the filter from the time they’re caught until the time they’re flushed out. Also unlike fiberglass and pleated filters, electrostatic filters are reusable and are cleaned by simply removing the filter from the vent and vacuuming off the dusty side with the hose attachment on a vacuum cleaner. If dirt and dust remain after vacuuming, the filter can be flushed out with a hose and left to air dry. So, not only are these filters more economical because you don’t have to keep buying a new one every month, they’re also better for the environment: both inside your home as well as by not contributing to landfills.
John’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling will install an electrostatic filter or Advanced Oxidation Air Purifier, making you breathe easier and feel healthier, all the way around.
