Find Out More About UV Air Purifiers

Monday, May 4th, 2020

carries-IAQ-contentWe offer many different options for improving indoor air quality in the homes of our customers. It starts right with repairing the ventilation itself, which can harm indoor air quality if it is leaky or poorly designed. Our technicians also install many of the best IAQ devices that remove unwanted particles from the air, such as dust, lint, pollen, dander, chemicals, smoke, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), dust mites, and more.

Right now, many of our customers are inquiring about installing UV lights and air purifiers in Fresno, CA and elsewhere in the Central Valley. Ultraviolet air purifiers are an effective device against organic pollutants that may circulate through the air of a house. The UV rays from the lights in these purifiers disrupt the cellular structure of such harmful contaminants as bacteria, mold spores, viruses, and allergens; and neutralizes odors and harmful VOCs. UV air purifiers also stop mold growth inside HVAC systems, improving their energy efficiency and preventing the terrible odors from “dirty sock syndrome.” Unlike room air purifiers, the UV systems are central and clean the air throughout the house.

Air Purification systems such as the Carrier Infinity Air Purifier System treat 100% of the air flowing through the home comfort system.  These systems use precision point ionization to charge particles as they enter the purifier.   The particles are attracted to the air cartridge and then captured and killed.

Air Quality and Fighting the Flu Season

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

HVACkidAs the cold weather approaches, so does the dreaded flu season. There are good medical methods you can use to prepare for flu season, as well as simple precautions like getting into the habit of regularly washing your hands. But you may not be aware of the ways you can improve your home’s indoor air quality to make it easier to get through flu season without getting sick.

Yes, indoor air quality can play a big part in whether you and other people in your household catch the flu, the cold, or other illnesses during the fall and winter. Once germs and viruses get into your house, they’ll start to circulate through the ventilation system, making is easier for them to spread from person to person. Fresh air can help—but you often don’t want to open your home to outdoor air when it’s cold.

Fortunately, we offer indoor air quality solutions that can help you enjoy a much healthier home this coming flu season.

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

woman-with-allergiesIt’s been raining this week and last week in Fresno, CA. This rainfall is very welcome, since we’ve been going through a drought and rain brings relief for farmers.
