Monday, July 10th, 2017

question-markWarm air blowing from your air conditioner or loud sounds developing are problems that you don’t want to encounter. However, they are also the types of problems that you may expect to run into from time to time with your air conditioning system.

When Is a UV Air Purifier Necessary?

Monday, May 29th, 2017

UV-air-purifierEvery home needs an air conditioner to keep it cool and comfortable in the summer, and a dependable heater to get the homeowners through the long, cold winter season. There are other considerations to be made, though, such as those surrounding your overall indoor air quality. While not every home will use indoor air quality systems the way that they do their HVAC systems, it is definitely worth exploring your options if you’ve encounter problems with aggravated allergy symptoms or certain other issues in your home.

In many residences, airborne pollutants like dust and dirt are going to be the primary allergens of concern. Sometimes, though, biological pollutants are at the root of one’s IAQ problems. If this is the case, you cannot really hope to effectively resolve the problem by simply filtering the pollutants out of the air. They need to be destroyed, and a UV air purifier in Fairfield, CT is the perfect weapon for the job.
