How to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home
Spring has sprung! Trees are budding, flowers are blooming, and temperatures are rising along with the pollen level. As outdoor pollutants increase, the air quality outside and inside our homes decreases. Poor indoor air quality can lead to a long list of adverse health effects.
Poor air quality can contribute to:
Eye, nose, and throat soreness
Headaches and migraines
Skin problems like eczema
Bacteria and virus spreading
Whenever you breathe, sneeze, or cough in your home, bacteria are released into the air. That air is then sucked into your air return (the area at which you change your filter). It flows through your duct system and through your HVAC system which heats or cools the air and then it is redistributed throughout your home through your vents. The bacteria is never eliminated through the process of heating and cooling and therefore is still present in the air as it is distributed throughout your home.
In-duct air purification products solve this problem through ionization and UV lighting. Ionization uses positive and negative ions to break down pollutants and gases into harmless compounds. The ions also attach to particles (pollen, pet and skin dander, etc) causing them to stick to other particles which makes them large enough to be caught by your standard air filter. UV lights damage the bacteria and virus DNA killing them.
At Premier, it’s our goal to improve the quality of life at your home by providing high-quality and reliable products and services. We offer several in-duct air purification systems, as well as heavy-duty filters able to catch smaller particles while having little to no effect on airflow. We also offer UV lights and more!
