An efficient HVAC system in your home is an essential part of maintaining good indoor air quality and protecting your health. JW Plumbing, Heating and Air provides HVAC technicians to serve the greater Los Angeles area, San Fernando Valley, and San Gabriel Valley, including all of Orange County.
The addition of air quality systems is the most effective means of cutting down and controlling and eliminating the toxins. Air filters remove large particles; air purifiers help the filters do their job; air cleaners and UV lights further help curb the level of particles in the air. Maintaining the air ducts is crucial in keeping mold and hidden contaminants from re-entering the air through the vents.
AIR TOXINS IN THE HOME
It is estimated that people, on average, spend nearly 90% of the day indoors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental threats to public health. The effect of poor indoor quality on your health cannot be overestimated. The danger from poor indoor air quality is one of the leading cause of severe respiratory diseases worldwide.
Mold, mildew, bacteria, and other biological toxins residing in the home and absorbed into the air we breathe not only can cause respiratory problems but other health issues caused by viruses and fungal contamination. Mold inside the HVAC system can redistribute contaminants back into the indoor air in your home.
PROTECTION WITH GERMICIDAL LIGHTS
A germicidal light is a viable protective measure along with purifiers and other preventative means for ensuring the air in your home is cleaner A germicidal light produces ultraviolet (UVC) light which neutralizes the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms, damaging their ability to multiply and cause disease. The UV light also eradicates mold found in pockets of moisture, preventing the replication of mold spores and the like from being released into the air and our lungs.
