Breathe Freely ~ Indoor Air Quality Services From Fox

Indoor Air Quality

As a Vernon and area homeowner, your primary concern for your HVAC system is probably that it keeps your home’s air warm in the winter and cool in the summer. However, Your air temperature isn’t the only factor that matters—the air quality your HVAC system produces is equally essential.

All furnaces use filters to remove particles from the air circulating in your house. However, even high-quality filters cannot trap particles that are smaller than 5 microns in size, which easily pass through the lungs, putting your air quality (and health) at risk.

Why Your Home’s Air Quality Matters

Regardless of what kind of air filter your furnace has, 98% of all indoor air particles are less than 1 micron in size. This means the majority of allergens, dirt, mold, and harmful particles could be collecting in your HVAC system’s ductwork or floating in your home—and your lungs. These microorganisms can trigger allergies, asthma, COPD, and other respiratory issues that may have free reign of your home.

To make matters worse, the Environmental Protection (EPA) says that on average, people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, meaning there’s no escape from allergens and other potentially hazardous particles without indoor air quality services.

Your HVAC system already maintains a comfortable temperature in your home throughout the year. Why not help it do even more good for you and your family with products that can capture dirt, kill germs, and purify your indoor air quality?

In addition to refreshing and rejuvenating your air quality, a clean HVAC system will run at peak efficiency, which can ease its parts’ workload and help it last longer.

Why We Choose Pristine Air
The Pristine Air® whole house polarized-media electronic air cleaner installs directly into the 1” filter rack(s) in the existing heating and cooling system. Its enhanced polarized media combines elements of both electronic and media air cleaners. Particles are charged (polarized) to attract the smallest of particles to an easily replaced media pad. Polarized sub-micron particles join with other particles and are collected on subsequent passes.
