Air Cleaners & Other Solutions for Improved Indoor Air Quality

If you are weighing the advantages and disadvantages of installing an air cleaner for your home, you should know one thing – it won't be easy to find a disadvantage. According to experts like the EPA, the air inside your home can be much more polluted compared to the air outside. This is a surprising fact considering all the air pollution outdoors, and Proactive Home Services is here to help.

How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

One of the best ways to see an immediate improvement in the quality of air in your home is to have an air cleaner professionally installed. Better indoor air quality is quickly going from a luxury to a necessity. If you are at all health-conscious, air cleaners will improve the air quality in your home. This is especially important for any families with loved ones who have allergies or respiratory conditions.

Air inside our homes can be full of various harmful substances and microorganisms. Among those commonly found pollutants are bacteria, viruses, molds, fungi, dust, dust termites, small chemical molecules, and animal dander. Needless to say, those could cause serious health problems. That is why air cleaning equipment is often considered a logical and helpful investment.

The two most beneficial types of air cleaners we recommend are:
  • HEPA Filters - HEPA is an acronym that stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. These professional grade filters are special products specifically designed to filter air pollution. HEPA filters are extremely effective in removing almost one hundred percent of particles in the air down to the smallest particle measuring 0.3 micrometers. These very minute particles can escape ordinary air filters. HEPA air filters are the best alternative and the most efficient.
  • UV Lights - It has been found that ultraviolet radiation is the most effective way to combat mold and other airborne bacteria in your home. UV rays can be used individually or can be combined with an EAC (Electronic Air Cleaner) to prevent or diminish the health risks that mold presents. UV light is able to restrict the reproduction process and growth of germs, allergens, viruses, bacteria, and mold.To successfully kill microorganisms, found in an indoor atmosphere, ultraviolet energy waves are used. The UV radiation must make direct contact with the harmful bacteria to make sure that it is exterminated. The ultraviolet rays then infiltrate the organism, causing the molecular bonds to stop functioning properly and inducing mutilation of the cells.This remedy for the HVAC system kills and sterilizes microorganisms. The germs are either killed or sterilized, leaving them unable to reproduce. This is a guaranteed solution to reducing the allergens in the atmosphere in your home and improving your family's overall quality of life.
