While we like to think our homes are clean, and they may appear to be so from the outside, oftentimes we don’t know what’s really lurking in our own air. Studies have shown that most individuals spend up to 90% of time indoors, so it’s important to know what you’re actually breathing? Smoke, pet dander, allergens, odors, air pollutants and common viruses are just some of the many hazards floating around in the air we breathe. A simple indoor air quality (IAQ) solution that connects to your own air conditioning unit could help you and your family from getting ill.
Here are some of the options that we have for you at Thornton Heating and Air.
The REME Halo. This duct air purifier has been tested and shown to safely eliminate not only air odor, but more importantly, it effectively removes airborne pollutants. Surface bacteria, mold spores and even viruses, such as MRSA and ecoli, can be removed by producing Hydro-Peroxide plasma via your existing air unit and spreading it through the ducts of your home.
“This higher output also drops more particulates from the air bringing relief to those who suffer from allergies and other respiratory issues.” *
The award winning design provides quick kill rates for microbial contaminants in your air, too.
Ultramax EZUV. This system uses the ultraviolet power of UV light, like UV rays from the sun, to make the air in your home healthier to breathe. Like the REME, this unit is also installed in your existing HVAC system, helping to reduce contaminants in your unit. It also helps clean the coils, which can make your unit run more efficiently.
“EZUV kills airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens and keeps the interior surfaces of your HVAC system free of mold and other biogrowth.” *
Using natural UV light, the air in your home can be instantly purified. This unit requires very little maintenance – only replacing the lamp once a year during your existing maintenance appointment.
Phenomenal Air Cold Plasma Generator. Killing mold, fungus, bacteria and viruses, this unit cleans air naturally. It creates ions by passing air through a plasma field, all connected to your existing HVAC unit.
“The ions created within the field act as a natural scrubbing agent for the air passing through the field.”*
This system creates clean, purified air which then is filtered into the living space of your home. There are no harmful biproducts and no detectable ozone generated, making it a safe and natural choice for air purification.
While all of these systems are slightly different in their approach, one thing remains the same. Each removes harmful contaminants, viruses and bacteria from your air, which can lead to a more healthy home environment for you and your family. All of these systems recommend a trained, qualified HVAC technician to properly install and maintain. At Thornton’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we have been helping our community with their heating and air needs for over 45 years.
