Why You Need an Air Scrubber
If you’re concerned about your indoor air quality, you’ve probably looked into air filtration systems and air purifiers. Air purifiers are common and typically UV or electronic systems. Both types of air purifiers kill off microscopic organisms, germs, and mold spores.
An air scrubber sets itself apart because it’s such an effective whole–home cleansing system. The Air Scrubber Plus works by sending out ActivePure scrubbers throughout your home’s air supply which remove airborne contaminants, chemicals, mold, odors, and other pollutants. An air scrubber also kills germs in high risk areas like doorknobs, toilets, kitchen counters, and anywhere your pets frequent.
This system is extremely efficient. In fact, NASA developed this technology with the intent to use it in the International Space Station. Adding an air scrubber to your home is so effective that it reduces about 90% of all airborne microorganisms.
How Your Kansas City, MO Home can Benefit from a Humidifier
When humidity levels fall in winter, you feel the effects. You may not correlate the problems that arise during this time with a lack of humidity, but this is the reason. Decreased humidity levels cause:
- An increased susceptibility to colds and other illnesses.
- Dry skin and hair.
- Static shocks.
- Cracking or splitting of wood furnishings.
Your body is comprised of about 60% water so depriving it of moisture makes it harder to perform basic functions that keep you comfortable and healthy.
Dry air also forces your HVAC system to work harder. Without humidity in the air you’ll feel colder. Adding a humidifier to your home allows you to set your thermostat to a lower temperature while remaining comfortable. This is because moist air holds more heat. Adding a whole–home humidifier helps keep your family comfortable and your bills low this winter.
The Benefits of Professional Duct Cleaning
One of the best ways to improve the indoor air quality of your home is by maintaining clean air ducts. You may not even realize the far–reaching impact a dirty air duct system has on your home. When you allow dust to build up in your air ducts it causes HVAC inefficiency, dust on home surfaces, increased respiratory issues for your family members.
Having your air ducts cleaned regularly means that your table tops, window sills, and other areas that collect dust will stay cleaner, longer, your family members will breathe easier, and you’ll save money on energy costs because your system is running efficiently. A service like this is simple, but you still need an experienced team like ours to perform a thorough job and ensure that your indoor air quality is up to par.
