Is clean air important to you?

We want to help you discover how a whole house HEPA filtration system will give you cleaner air.

 

Your indoor air quality is under attack by pet dander, dust, pollen, furnishings, air fresheners, gas stoves, space heaters, cleaning supplies, and outdoor air leaking in your home because of poor ventilation.

 

As many as 30% of adults and 40% of children suffer from allergies in the United States. Improving your Indoor Air Quality can help minimize suffering from allergies.

There are three sources of poor Indoor Air Quality: Gaseous Odors, Microbial Spores (mold), and Particulates (dust and pollen).

 

Gaseous Odors (odors from pets, food, cigarette smoke, etc.) can be eliminated by using an Austin Air Cleaner, it literally takes the "stuff" out of the air.

 

Microbial Spores build up in air handlers. Having a UV Light installed in the air handler will help keep microbial spores from growing. Thus allowing the air handler to pump cleaner air.

Here are some benefits to having a UV Light:

  • Great for asthma and allergy sufferers
  • It detoxifies the air
  • Works with your existing system
  • The short wave-length of a UV light penetrates the cell walls of microbial so they can't multiple
  • UV lights prolong the life of your unit by keeping coils cleaner

 

An air filter can decrease humidity in your home which will decrease the amount of dust mites and other particles.
